Now for my hopefull’s for the BC/Breeder’s Stakes Series races:
Of course Foolhardy is the main star on my list of star horses. He can be entered in either the BC Mile or BC Turf race, but distance-wise he tends to be better now in 12f races so the Turf will likely be his race. I want him at FFCh. status before he retires to stand at stud next year and he doesn’t have many more points left to go. Reaching 10 million in earnings would be icing on the cake as well
Clendon Park is another star to watch as she will be entered into the BC SC Distaff of course and she has a very good shot at winning the race. She’ll have a prep race before that very soon, and then off to the BC she will go.
Dreamboat I will enter in the BC Sprint even with the stiff competition, she will still have the best chance for a victory in a sprint race with the colts/stallions.
Long Shot will go into the BC Distaff which is the perfect distance for her, and she needs to race against the fillies and mares on dirt. Best chance is for here there.
Now, for the BC Classic… I have to decide whether to enter both Bright Gold and Clear Effect if they both qualify or whether I want to enter National Post into there as well. Whomever I do not enter in the BC Classic however will be put into the BC Mile if they qualify for it and depending on who qualifies for what race.
What’s Your Dream will be entered into the BC Filly & Mare Turf race of course, with possibly some of my other turf fillies and mares if one of them qualifies as well.
Secretsarebound might qualify for one of the BC Mile, Sprint, or Turf races… not sure about the Classic but he will be entered if he has enough points for any particular race.
Oscuro Arco Iris will go into the BC Filly & Mare Turf race along with What’s Your Dream, while Crucible may be races the week before in the AJC Oaks, or go into the BC Distaff along with Long Shot if she qualifies.
Void will be entered into the BC SC Endurance because he thrives on the distance factor and he will do his best in that race. Swanlake might be entered into the BC SC Sprint or Classic depending on if he qualifies and which race he fits the best.
Banner Raised or Highland Outlaw if they qualify will be raced in the BC Juvenille, and Fingerprints in the BC Juvenille Fillies. Of course All Jazzed Up might be raced in the BC Juvenille just for fun as well.
Apollo and Chivalry might have one entry from the both of them put into the BC Mile as well depending on what occurs.
The same horses will be considered for the Breeders’ Stakes series races, except a few more will likely be entered as well.
