A 2021 Breeders’ Cup Bankroll Builder
First things first. The Breeders’ Cup draw is not until Monday. You don’t get paid more for selecting and locking in now. At Del Mar specifically the draw in certain races is crucial. The mile (two turn mile) races on turf and dirt will be impacted by the draw. That turn comes up fast, really fast. The mile and a sixteenth races have short runs to that first turn as well. I don’t think Jackie’s Warrior has as good a chance from the inside as he will from the outside. The draw, sometimes it is not all that and sometimes it is. This year it is. Patience.

On Saturday at Keeneland the Grade 2 Hagyard Fayette is at a mile and an eighth. Odd as it may be as he is o for 5 at this distance but I think it comes up perfect for Code of Honor. Code of Honor could have won the Kentucky Derby had it not rained and despite being a Travers winner he has been somewhat of a disappointment. I think he has a really good chance to run one of his better races Saturday, and I think his A game is enough to beat these.
Last time out Code of Honor had no shot. Art Collector, who I loved that day was the lone speed and the one turn configuration at Belmont for the mile and an eighth was perfect for him. Shug’s horse was compromised by that but still ran an OK and even race. While there is not a lot of speed in this race, there is also no Art Collector. Tyler Gaffalione should have Code of Honor is a decent spot and close enough to make his run count. He also may get a little lost in the wagering shuffle which would be fine with me.
Earlier on the card we’ll get to see if the killer maiden win by My Prankster at Saratoga was legit, and also if the Champagne where My Prankster flopped flatters Breeders’ Cup contender Jack Christopher. I’m not sure about the Breeders’ Cup just yet, but I think the Saratoga version of My Prankster has a very good chance of showing up in the Bowman Mill at Keeneland.
