Hawthorne Gold Cup Day is here — and Blinkers Off most certainly did not forget about this important day. Those of us who follow Chicago racing have been hard at work on the card, and this post has all the analysis you need, all in one place.
For a preview of the horses and connections entering this Grade II, read the Blood-Horse. None other than my esteemed Picks and Ponderings colleague Paul Mazur took an early look at the race.
My detailed handicapping analysis of the race appears in this weekend’s Chicago Railbird on ShapperDaCapper. For another perspective, Paul wrote his selections and analysis for the Gold Cup at Picks and Ponderings.
For those who are playing along for the entire card, I have insight there as well. My full-card picks and analysis for today’s Gold Cup Day card are available on Danonymous Racing.
All in all, we have plenty of information to get you ready for the biggest day of the Hawthorne fall meet. See you there!
