The much anticipated 2011 Breeders Classic will take place as Race 5 this Saturday February 12, 2011, and we have put together our tips for the $175,000 race.
Current favourite with both us and the bookies is #1 More Joyous, paying $1.55 to win at Luxbet.
The champion mare has demonstrated why she deserves to be such a short priced favourite by winning 10 of her 14 starts to date.
This will be More Joyous’ first up performance since a 12 week spell, and her trainer, Gai Waterhouse, has already announced that she believes her mare to be in such excellent form that she will go unbeaten this preparation.
With such a champion in the race it would be very difficult to bet against More Joyous in the 2011 Breeders Classic.
Our pick to run second is David Pfiefer’s #6 Graceful Anna.
While Graceful Anna has not won a race since May, 2010, she has a win percentage of 50% and we believe she will put in an admirable performance in the 2011 Breeders Classic.
Graceful Anna is paying $26 to win at Luxbet, which is very nice odds on such a classy mare.
John Thompson’s #7 Marquardt has drawn barrier 3 in this year’s Breeders Classic.
Marquardt has won over 1,100 metres in the past so we know that she has the necessary experience needed to be a serious contender in the 2011 Breeders Classic.
Marquardt is currently paying $12 to win at Luxbet and will be ridden by jockey Glen Colless.
Les Bridges’ #9 Jersey Lily is another outsider that we feel has been underrated in the lead up to the 2011 Breeders Classic.
Currently fetching odds of $21 a win at Luxbet, Jersey Lily has been designated a light 55 kilogram weight and a reasonable barrier draw of seven.
