Picks and Ponderings: 2017 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Preview

With five weeks until the Breeders’ Cup, many of the marquee prospects for our sport’s biggest weekend have penciled in their final prep races for this weekend.  Thanks to that, Saturday’s cards at both Belmont and Santa Anita are chock full of graded stakes.

This piece features a full preview of the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic (G1) at Belmont, a Win and You’re In for the Breeders’ Cup Turf (G1).  The contentious field of eleven includes Arlington Million (G1) exacta Beach Patrol and Fanciful Angel, three-year-old dynamo and Secretariat Stakes (G1) winner Oscar Nominated, and the American debut of globetrotter The Grey Gatsby.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic, and check back later this week for my selections for Saturday’s other major Breeders’ Cup preps at Belmont and Santa Anita!
