Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint Odds: Preview And Future Bets

Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint Odds: Preview And Future Bets

One of the newest races to be added to the Breeders' Cup schedule, the Turf Sprint has been run nine times, starting in 2008. Due to the fact the race has been run at different distances depending on which track is hosting the Breeders' Cup, handicapping the Turf Sprint based on past results is more difficult than with all the other Breeders' Cup races.  

Breeders Cup Turf Sprint Odds 

Lady Aurelia - Three-year-old Kentucky-bred filly broke her maiden first try at Keeneland in 2016, then went over to the UK where she's won three Group-level stakes, two of those Group 1s. Won big two back over older colts. 

Marsha - Four-year-old mare has been very competitive at the Group level, finishing in the money in her last eight starts, with three wins. Upset Lady Aurelia in a Group 1 two races back at odds of +800.

Disco Partner - Five-year-old New York-bred colt has been dominant sprinting in 2017, with four wins from five starts. Set the track record in winning the Jaipur Invitational Stakes at Belmont in June, just missed setting another last out by 1/10th of a second.

Om - Veteran California-based colt has been getting results, running 2nd or 3rd in his last seven tries, but does not have a win since 2015, including running second in this race last year. Does have two wins over the Del Mar turf. Not yet declared for the Breeders' Cup.

Pure Sensation - Florida-bred is back for his third crack at the BC Turf Sprint, having finished 3rd last year after not hitting the board in 2015. Has won two of his last three, both Grade 3 events.

Long On Value - Veteran Virginia-bred colt has 30 starts to his name and a couple of graded-stakes wins on his resume, but the last of those came in 2015 and he's struggled lately at the lower stakes level. Not yet declared for the Breeders' Cup.

Stormy Liberal - Is four-for-five on the year with a Grade 3 win, but was well-beaten 8th last out in the race where Disco Partner set the track record. Not yet declared for the Breeders' Cup.

Pay Any Price - Has won four of six races this year and has several stakes wins to his name, but has yet to try graded-stakes and would be taking a big step uop in class. Not yet declared for the Breeders' Cup.

Holding Gold - Started the year with a win in the (G2) Shakertown Stakes at Keeneland at +1800, but has not found the winner's circle in his last four tries. Late-runner probabaly needs more distance. 

Undrafted - Veteran of 33 lifetime starts was 8th in this race last year. Won the 2016 Shakertown, but has not won at the stakes level since and is unlikely to be entered here.
