The Friday Show Presented By Woodbine: Breeders’ Cup Locks And Longshots

Aidan O’Brien’s Breeders’ Cup runners take to the track at Keeneland

Undefeated Flightline is expected to be the shortest-priced runner in this year's Breeders' Cup world championships when he faces seven others in Saturday's $6-million Classic at Keeneland race course in Lexington, Ky. But are there can't-miss “locks” in any of the other 13 championship races that begin on Friday?

In this week's special Breeders' Cup edition of the Friday Show, publisher Ray Paulick and bloodstock editor Joe Nevills are joined by Andrew Champagne, whose public selections for Saratoga appear every summer in the “Pink Sheet.” They've each combed through the past performances and watched countless replays in an effort to identify that one horse that just can't lose.

Paulick's pick is in the first Breeders' Cup race, Friday's Juvenile Turf Sprint. Champagne found a can't-miss runner in Saturday's Dirt Mile and Nevills likes a most familiar runner in Saturday's Turf Sprint.

In addition to their “locks,” the trio picks one longshot they like in the Breeders' Cup, with Nevills finding an upset special in the Filly & Mare Sprint, Champagne in the Juvenile Fillies Turf, and Paulick's longshot special coming in the Turf.
