2014 Breeder's Cup Filly and Mare Turf Pick, Odds, Post Positions, and Preview

USA TODAY Sports

While the top two morning line choices in the 2014 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf this race seem to stand above the field enough to make them fairly comfortable selections for the top spots, it is tough to choose between them.

 Stephanie’s Kitten is considered by many to be the U.S.’s best shot to take a grass race (outside of the turf sprint), but she will need to work out a trip while getting the necessary pace to close into.  Stephanie’s Kitten came up just short against stiff competition twice over the summer and lost all chance when the gate opened on the Belmont Stakes undercard, but maybe her latest effort, a handy win against inferior competition reminded her how to win.  Expect Stephanie’s Kitten to be flying late and she’ll be very tough to deny.  If anyone is up to the task, it will likely be defending champion Dank who is winless in two tries since taking this crown last year.  Another Euro invader, and another one that will do their best running in the closing stages is Fiesolana, a Group 1 winner at Leopardstown in September as It is tough to count on her late run packing as much punch with all of this added ground.  Truth be told, I thought Fiesolana fit much better in the Mile.

On July 1, 2008 I typed into Google "How Do I start A Blog" and I started my first website called "Miami Mitch's Place" where i shared my college football Picks and predictions as well as opinion. By the Fall I had heard from many that the title made it sound like the site was about Miami so I changed it to "College Football Place" (cfbplace.com), After the 2008 college football season I change focus and launched CBBplace.com, it wasn't long after that when I realized I just wanted one place to add all sports, and that's when Sports Chat Place was born.

This site is a big Thank You to all of our readers, visitors, and community where we have been given a platform to talk to the masses about sports and hopefully help put you on some winners. If you need to reach me just shoot an email to [email protected]
