Top 5 2014 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile Contenders

Bob Baffert’s Fed Biz has won six times in 18 career starts, including three graded wins.

In two starts in the BC Dirt Mile, Fed Biz has performed below standards, finishing sixth in 2013 and eighth in 2012. In his last work (10/16), Biz ran six furlongs in 1:12.40.

Top 5 2014 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint Contenders

Having Jim Rome’s Mizdirection out of the picture, there will be a new Turf Sprint champion come Nov 1. The favorite, Reneesgotzip, will get another shot at the title after finishing second behind Mizdirection last year. However, Reneeagotzip drew a horrible position at post position No. 1. Having a right turn at the top of the hill, could be a disadvantage because he’ll be in the outside at the first turn. The downhill turf is a unique race, so experience at Santa Anita is beneficial. Out of the top 5, two horses have run the turf sprint at Santa Anita. So, based out of “The Great Race Place,” Home Run Kitten could be the spoiler. In fact, in his last three turf races at Santa Anita, Home Run Kitten won them all. Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker will have his first entry as a sole owner with Undrafted.
