This year’s edition of the Breeder’s Cup Dirt Mile features last year’s champ returning to defend his crow.

Goldencents has been installed as the biggest morning line favorite of the weekend. With the defection of American Pharaoh from the Juvenile, Goldencents could very possibly be the biggest favorite to leave the gate.  To me, Goldencents appears mortal, and while I’m not particularly concerned by his most recent defeat, I am committed to trying to beat him.  With the presence of some other speed in the race, it appears best to try and find someone comfortable with coming from off the pace.  Carve should be content with a front row seat to the fight for the lead, giving him first crack if it doesn’t hold up but his form is questionable coming in to such a tough spot. If Carve is given reason to believe he can compete with these and he’s in great hands if ready to give his best.  Golden Ticket is back for another crack at this crown, and while he fell short last year, he put in a very solid run to close a ton of ground – something nobody else did all day.  This is his preferred distance, but Golden Ticket is another that will need to show up with his A-game.
