The big days are finally here! Well the bigger day is Saturday, but Friday is pretty big, too. Check out my blog on Blood Horse to read why race 5, the Twilight Derby, is the most important race on the Friday card.

I might tweak this a bit after reading Andy Harrington’s National Turf Clocker Report, which is available as part of the Breeders’ Cup Ultimate Handicapping Package and will be available Thursday night for Friday. My wagering strategy is pretty straightforward. I’ll definitely single Royal Delta on most Pick 4 tickets and will spread with As and Bs in the $.50 Pick 3s. My main “vertical” (e.g. exacta and trifecta) play will come in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf where I plan to play Ontology across the board and in exactas and tris with my As & Bs in that race.

ABC grid is below; GOOD LUCK!
