The Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint will be the 7th race at Santa Anita on Saturday.  It will be run at six and a half furlongs over the downhill turf course for 3-year-olds and up with a purse of $1,000,000.  Post time is scheduled for 2:05pm local time (5:05pm ET).

Santa Anita Race 7:  #4 Reneesgotzip - #6 Boat Trip - #12 Mizdirection    

Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint

The #4 Reneesgotzip has one career spin over this quirky downhill course and while it only resulted in a third place finish, it was an awful good one in this race last year.  She has the speed to be involved early, which will benefit her in this spot, but she doesn’t absolutely need the lead, which is good because she does not want to get caught up in a duel.  She held on much the best of any of the front runners in last year’s edition and with less speed apparent this time around, she should prove very dangerous after drawing a good post again.  The #6 Boat Trip broke his maiden on his first try over this course and just missed last out in his second attempt over it.  He was absolutely flying late, coming up just short of catching Chips All In who benefitted from sitting close to a pace that was much slower than he will encounter here.  The #12 Mizdirection is like a duck in water on the downhill turf course where she has won all 5 of her career starts, including last year’s edition.  She was amazing last year closing from behind at nearly 7-1, but she has the ability to show speed if needed.  While she has the right to repeat, she threatens to be the most over bet horse of the weekend, and if she drifts lower than the morning line represents, she becomes an absolute must bet against… in my humble opinion.
