Breeders’ Cup Presents The News Minute: Good Trips From Bad Posts

Rushing Fall broke from the 11 post when she won the 2017 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Del Mar

With Estilo Talentoso being withdrawn from Saturday's Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint, that leaves the race with just five starters, led by defending champion and odds-on morning line favorite Gamine. This will be the smallest field ever assembled for a Breeders' Cup race in the event's 38 runnings. There have been fields as small as seven previously, in both the Sprint and Turf,  but this year's championships will have two races with shorter fields: the Filly & Mare Sprint and the Juvenile Fillies, which has only six entries.

In today's Breeders' Cup News Minute, Ray Paulick reviews some of the most disadvantageous post positions for various distances over the Del Mar racetrack layout. The review comes with the caveat that horses can overcome bad posts: witness Rushing Fall's win from post 11  in the 2017 Juvenile Fillies Turf at Del Mar and Caledonia Road's win from post 12 in that year's Juvenile Fillies on dirt.

Paulick also has a local dining tip for a new Italian restaurant with roots in Cape Cod on the East Coast.
