Picks and Ponderings: 2017 Breeders’ Cup Saturday Preview

Welcome to Day Two of the 2017 Breeders’ Cup!  Picks and Ponderings previewed Friday’s four Breeders’ Cup races in a separate piece.  Here, we look at Saturday’s nine Breeders’ Cup races, headlined by Arrogate’s attempt to join Tiznow among two-time winners of the Breeders’ Cup Classic.

The day features several links to the local circuit — many of which, to Arlington Million Day.  Arlington Million (G1) winner Beach Patrol will attempt to win a third straight Grade 1 race in the Breeders’ Cup Turf, and Secretariat Stakes (G1) winner Oscar Performance joins him in that field.  Dacita’s victory in the Beverly D Stakes (G1) this summer earned her a bid in the Beverly D, and she will attempt to join Dank in the exclusive club of mares who have swept the Beverly D – Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf double.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup races, and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
