Breeders Cup: A look at the Mile

By The Rex Factor A look at the Mile One of the more diverse fields of the day will hit the Keeneland lawn to kick off the late big guaranteed Pick-4.

Breeders Cup: A look at the Sprint

By The Rex Factor The fastest of the fast dirt horses on Breeders Cup in the world take to the Keeneland oval; sometimes the speed can outlast them all as it did for 2014 winner Work All Week. If likely favorite Runhappy (5) breaks badly (dead last) like he did in his last two starts, he Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Filly & Mare Sprint

By The Rex Factor Another 2014 champion returns to defend a title on Breeders Cup in this race, which has never been won in gate-to-wire fashion. Judy The Beauty (11) was a game second in this race two years ago for trainer Wesley Ward before scoring at Santa Anita last fall. She’s had just two starts Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Turf Sprint

By The Rex Factor The Breeders’ Cup added this race in 2008 when it expanded its card, and it’s likely the most exciting minute of the entire weekend, although not quite as dramatically as when they run it down the Santa Anita hill. Bobby’s Kitten (2) became the first 3-year old to win this race Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Juvenile Fillies

By The Rex Factor At least for one race, to set the tone for the Breeders’ Cup Saturday card, we get a west coast/east coast showdown. The top fillies from each coast are undefeated and should go off as the two top choices. Songbird (10) will break from the outside in the 10-horse field and Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Distaff

By The Rex Factor There might not be a more wide-open race in all of the Breeders’ Cup races than the 2015 Distaff. It’s a full 14-horse field going to post and the connections of no less than half of the starters think they have a good chance to win the race. That being said, Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Juvenile Fillies Turf

By The Rex Factor Six of the 15 entries in the Juvenile Fillies Turf are or were based in Europe, so there will be some unknowns there. One horse, the (9), Nemoralia, took an opposite route to get to this race. She shipped from Arlington over to Europe and raced between six and seven furlongs Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Dirt Mile

By The Rex Factor The most trying race configuration on the Keeneland oval is the Dirt Mile. The horses will be running a mile and 70 yards (the 70 yards gives horses “ample” time to get to the first turn) on the mile-long track. This race figures to again favor horses starting to the inside; Read More…

By The Rex Factor Breeders Cup: A look at the Juvenile Turf The first of the two-day, 13-race Breeders’ Cup card is for 2-year old colts (and geldings). Cymric (13) is trained by legendary John Gosden and ran a good second in a Group 1 on Arc Day and can win on soft ground, which Read More…
