Breeders Cup Marathon News and Notes

Breeders Cup  Marathon News and Notes
By Anthony Stabile

Marathon: 1 ½ miles; $500,000; 3up; Saturday, 1:10pm on ABC

The History

You’re witnessing it. This is the first running of this event.

The Best
Muhannak is a unique European shipper as he has plenty of Polytrack experience under his belt. In fact, he’s won four of seven and hit the board in his other three. He’s had success going this trip as well.

Zappa figures to take plenty of action when you take into account the fact that he’s probably the local with the best chance and won the 1 ½ miles Cougar II three starts back at Del Mar.

The Rest
Add Heat has won just once in ten synthetic track tries and has never Beyered in the triple digits. Big Booster was third behind Zappa back in July but hasn’t raced since. Booyah is winless in five synthetic starts. Cedar Mountain won and finished third in two synthetic tries in Europe before hitting the board in all five stateside starts on turf. Church Service just missed winning the G3 Tokyo City going this distance in the spring. Delightful Kiss is seeking his third consecutive win on synthetic having won his first two tries over it in the G3 Turfway Park Fall Challenge and All American. Sixties Icon is another making his synthetic debut though he’s had plenty of success at this distance and is seeking his fourth straight.

The Scenario
Booyah and Zappa should be on the lead early. Add Heat, Cedar Mountain, King of Rome and Muhannak should be in mid-pack. Big Booster, Church Service, Delightful Kiss and Sixties Icon should pull up the rear.

The Strategy
This seems like a good race to watch but if you must make a play, pick three or four mid-priced horses and make a trifecta or exacta box.

The Bomb
Church Service will be a huge price and has really turned the corner since being claimed earlier this season. He’ll be around 30-1, too.
