Breeders Cup Ladies Classic News and Notes
By Anthony Stabile

Ladies’ Classic: 1 1/8 miles; $2 million; 3up(f&m); Friday, 6:15pm on ESPN2

The History

Some of the best fillies and mares in the history of the sport - Lady’s Secret, Dance Smartly, Paseana, Inside Information, Spain, Azeri, Ashado - have a win here on their resumes. Bayakoa won it in 1989 and 1990. And who can forget Personal Ensign capping off a perfect, 13 for 13 career by nailing Kentucky Derby winner Winning Colors in the last stride of the 1988 renewal over a sloppy, historic Churchill Downs oval.

The Best
I didn’t think I’d do this, but the only filly or mare that can be classified under this heading is Zenyatta. She’s won all eight of her starts including two at Santa Anita and one at this distance. She owns three G1s and three G2’s and is seven for seven over synthetics. What else is there really to say?

The Rest
Bear Now has hit the board in all 12 of her synthetic starts including eight wins with the most recent being the G3 Kentucky Cup Distaff. Carriage Trail is another synthetic lover who galloped home an easy winner of the G1 Spinster at Keeneland last out despite drifting out terribly. Cocoa Beach has won both her U.S. starts since adding Lasix, including the G1 beldame at Belmont last out. Defending champ Ginger Punch has won five of seven, including three G1s this season, but was trounced by Zenyatta in their lone meeting which happened to come on conventional dirt. Last years’ runner-up Hystericalady tired to be second after loping along on the lead in the G1 Lady’s Secret behind Zenyatta in her most recent. She’s winless in five synthetic tries. Music Note has won four of her last five, including three G1s against three-year-olds. She’s two for two at the distance. Santa Teresita was third in the Lady’s Secret last out and finished second to Zenyatta in the G2 Milady back in May.

The Scenario
Bear Now and Hystericalady will duke it out on the engine. Ginger Punch should follow them. Carriage Trail, Cocoa Beach, Music Note and Santa Teresita should be in mid-pack. Zenyatta will be putting in her patented late run in the latter stages.

The Strategy
Zenyatta may actually go off the shortest priced favorite in all of the fourteen races. You have to either stand alone with her or spread using others. If you think she is vulnerable, you should get a juicy win price on any of the others in here.

The Bomb
Carriage Trail is three for four over synthetic surfaces and Shug is one of the all-time greats with the ladies. She’ll be about 12-1.
