of a Pat O'Brien Winner 2021
The Pat O'Brien
winner gets a spot in the Breeders' Cup Big Ass Fans Dirt Mile
Favorites have dominated recently,
winning the last three and five of the last six. In the last 10 years, when
chalk didn't score it finished second three times and off the board in the
Eight of the last 10 Pat O'Brien
left from middle posts and out, but that's relative to field size. For example,
MASOCHISTIC wore number 3, but there were only three horses in the field.
Six of 10 winners were considered
early speed with three going wire to wire, but two of the W2W were in fields of
three and four. In fields of six or more, stalkers/closer won all but one in
The Profile of a Ballerina Handicap Winner 2021
Handicap champ gets a spot in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint.
Big trouble for GAMINE? The
favorite has only won three of the last 10 Ballerina Handicaps, but two of them
were in the last three years. However, the post-time choice has hit the board
in seven of the last 10. So, it's probably a good idea to have the favorite
Early speed won four of the last
10 with three taking the field from gate to wire and ARTEMIS ARGOTERA riding
shotgun at the quarter-pole. Five of the other six stalked the leaders with
UNBRIDLED FOREVER going from worst to first in a seven-horse field.
The inside two posts won five of
the last 10 Ballerina with the rail getting three champs and two for two.
of a Personal Ensign Stakes Winner 2021
Personal Ensign Stakes winner is in the Breeders' Cup Distaff.
Horseplayers are usually close in
picking the winner. The chalk won four of the last 10 Personal Ensign Stakes
and was the runner up five times, including four of the last five years.
It's been a series of shorter
field with nine of the last 10 gating six or less. The inside three posts have
the most, winning seven of 10. The rail scoring twice, the 2 getting three
championships, the 3 scoring a pair.
Close to the front has been the
winning approach as seven of the last 10 were in the first three at the quarter-pole,
not surprising consider the skinny fields.
of a Sword Dancer Stakes Winner 2021
Dancer Stakes champion is in the Breeders' Cup Turf.
Odds are, if the chalk doesn't
score, it will finish out of the money. The public's choice has won five of the
last 10 and ran second once, last year.
Seven of the last 10 Sword Dancer
winners were closers, running fifth and out at the quarter-pole with all 10
field being at least seven deep.
Post position doesn't appear to
play a role in outcomes as winners left from the inside, middle and out.
