Bet these 2017 Breeders’ Cup Friday runners next time out

Breeders’ Cup 2017 is in the books, and following an exciting two days at Del Mar, let’s try to find some horses moving forward out of the championships for future wagering opportunities.

Juvenile Fillies Turf

I think the best horse won the first Breeders’ Cup 2017 race. Rushing Fall showed a nice late kick in her first two turf outings, including Keeneland’s Grade 3 Jessamine, and she did it again in this spot at Del Mar for Javier Castellano and Chad Brown. Best Performance and September rallied for second and third. 

The horse I am most interested in going forward is 4th-place finisher Significant Form (also trained by Brown) — and not just because she was my value top choice. She was the only forwardly placed runner to be around at the end. The top three, and 5th through 8th place finishers, were 9th, 8th, 14th, 11th, 7th, 10th, and 13th after the opening quarter. In the early stages, Significant Form was stalking three-wide in 4th. She hung in there throughout in a solid effort and is definitely worth following. She crossed the line first (placed 7th via disqualification Aug. 27) in her initial two Belmont starts including a sharp victory in the Grade 3 Miss Grillo.
