2014 Breeder's Cup Sprint Pick, Odds, Post Positions, and Preview

The 2014 Breeder’s Cup Sprint will likely carry on the tradition of being one of the more wide open races of the two days.

Rich Tapestry put in an ultra-impressive run while winning the Santa Anita Sprint Championship a month back whether or not you think Goldencents and Secret Circle were taking it easy.  Rich Tapestry finished like a freight train to run his record to a perfect 2-for-2 on dirt and he is for real, and if he works out a trip from off the pace, look out.  With that said, Rich Tapestry would become exponentially less attractive if for some reason he gets an unexpected amount of support at the windows.  Bakken is an interesting prospect in that his year was a bit riddled with set-backs, but he had enough time to put his significant talent on display on the east coast.  Fittingly, Bakken will get veteran jockey Gary Stevens aboard fresh off of knee surgery.  It is very easy to root for Stevens who is establishing himself as the iron man of riding, but it may be a touch more difficult when it comes to reaching into your wallet.  Private Zone returns to make amends for his disastrous showing last year and appears to be in top form for it.  He took the same route last year when he failed to parlay a big Vosburgh score into a BC crown but maybe he’ll have better luck this year as he has run well over the SA main in the past. 

The defending champion Secret Circle may leave the gate as the favorite despite being soundly beaten by my top choice in his last start.  That did come off an 8-month layoff, so an improvement is not out of the question.  I will not be backing it though.

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]
