Greenpointcrusader can win another Grade 1 in BC Juvenile

Saturday’s 9th race (4:10pm ET) from Keeneland is the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile for 2-year-olds traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track.

#3 GREENPOINTCRUSADER (4-1) owns an ascending numbers pattern and looked great in the G1 Champagne. He’s bred to be a good one and should continue to develop.

BC Juvenile 2015 odds

#7 Brody’s Cause (7-2) is 2-for-2 on dirt and packed a strong late punch in the G1 Breeders’ Futurity here Oct 3.

#9 Exaggerator (6-1) had the lead in the lane off a layoff but could not hold off Brody’s Cause in the aforementioned Breeders’ Futurity. He could be fitter this time.

#1 Conquest Big E (30-1) was 2nd to Brody’s Cause in his bow and looked good visually in his course/distance maiden win Oct 2. He’s training well and has a bright future. We shall see if he is ready for prime time.

#13 Nyquist (9-2) is 4-for-4 but his numbers dropped in his last two at 7f and a mile and a sixteenth.

#12 Swipe (15-1) lost to Nyquist in his last three but is closing the gap as distances increase.

Alice Springs an interesting contender in BC Juvenile Fillies Turf

Friday’s 8th race (4:50pm ET) from Keeneland is the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf for 2-year-old fillies traveling one mile on the turf course.

#3 ALICE SPRINGS (6-1) was only 1.25 lengths behind Illuminate at 6f Sept 26 and came back to cruise vs. eleven foes at seven furlongs a week later (both under Ryan Moore). She drew well, is bred to go this far, and is on the improve for O’Brien.

BC JF Turf 2015

#14 Last Waltz (20-1) is now trained by Chad Brown and her Racing Post Rating advanced in all four outings (102-98-83-74).

#9 Nemoralia (15-1) was 2nd in the G1 Frizette (sloppy track) and beat 18 foes in an overseas turf sprint Sept 10 (94 Racing Post Rating). I always respect Noseda when he enters a horse in the U.S.

#4 Catch a Glimpse (5-1) exits back-to-back Woodbine turf wire jobs and the 2-3 finishers from the G2 Natalma both came back to score.

#8 Harmonize (7-2) is versatile, training well, and a nose away from being undefeated.

#10 Illuminate (9-2) brings strong overseas turf sprint form to the table for Hannon and her Racing Post Ratings are strong (112-107-107-85).

Video Race of the Week: G1 QE II Challenge Cup from Keeneland

My video race of the week for Saturday, October 11 is the QE II Challenge Cup (9th race) from Keeneland. The Grade I affair is for 3-year-old fillies traveling nine furlongs on the soft turf course.

The QE II field has been reduced to seven following the defections of Aurelia’s Belle and Daring Dancer. G1 Del Mar Oaks winner Personal Diary figures to vie for favoritism with Chad Brown’s uncoupled duo of Minorette and Ball Dancing.

A Day at Keeneland + Blue Grass Stakes 2013 Preview

We spent the day at Keeneland on Wednesday, April 10, and here are some of the highlights:

Francisco Torres

Jockey Francisco Torres

Hanging out with ‘Cisco Torres at Keeneland.

I became friends with jockey Francisco Torres when I worked as Track Handicapper/TV Host at Louisiana Downs in 2008-09. He moved his tack to the Midwest shortly after that and my current employer Horse Racing Nation relocated from Shreveport to Kentucky late last year.

‘Cisco had a few mounts on Wednesday and it was nice to see him again. He said that he will ride at Churchill Downs after the current Keeneland meet ends.

War Dancer

Wednesday’s feature race was a salty $60,000 allowance turf route for 3-year-olds and War Dancer mowed ’em all down after blowing the break under Alan Garcia.

War Dancer

War Dancer storms home on Keeneland turf

Ken McPeek’s $220k son of War Front could end up in the graded turf ranks in the near future. Look for him in races like the Virginia Derby at Colonial Downs and the Secretariat at Arlington Park this summer.

Positively ended up 2nd in his first start of the season and is worth following as well. He faced graded main track rivals on multiple occasions last year and dam has tossed four turf winners.

Blue Grass Stakes Draw

Blue Grass stakes draw

Fourteen horses will break from the starting gate in the $750,000, Grade I Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland on Saturday, April 13. The field was drawn on Wednesday morning and Dynamic Sky will start from the inside post.

Morning line favorite Uncaptured drew well in post seven.

Balance the Books goes from post one in the Spiral to post eleven in the Blue Grass.

Rydilluc will try to overcome unlucky number thirteen and Fear the Kitten is marooned in the far outside post.

Blue Grass Video with Joe DePaolo

I have been working with Steve Bortstein for more than fifteen years. We were colleagues at Racing on the Net and I have contributed to his Fast Track radio show for many years. Joe DePaolo and I became Fast Track fixtures a few years ago and were joined by Molly Jo Rosen recently.

I shot a couple of Derby prep videos with Molly Jo earlier this year and I finally got to meet Joe DePaolo in person at Keeneland on Wednesday. We had a great time shooting the Blue Grass video below and hope to do more in the future. Thanks, Joe. It was a pleasure working with you.

Amazingly, I have yet to meet Steve in person. We have to make that happen!

If you would like to listen to the Fast Track with Steve Bortstein, you can tune in each Saturday & Sunday from 10am to 11am Eastern Time on the FoxSports 1340 New Mexico IHeart radio channel – http://www.iheart.com/#/live/5306/?autoplay=true
