2024 Breeders Cup Filly and Mare Sprint Betting Odds at Del Mar racecourse

Saturday, 02 November 2024

We’ve got one of the shortest-priced favourites when it comes to the 2023 Breeders Cup Filly & Mare Sprint, with Goodnight Olive being installed as the short priced favourite to land a victory. Although she was recently beaten at Saratoga, the bookies still think that the horse has a greater than 50% chance of securing the spoils.

If the favourite underwhelms, then Society could step into the breach. This is a horse that boasts strong credentials and there are then a clutch of other horses who are available at a similar price. This includes Eda, Matareya and Yuugiri, with these selections worth considering from an each-way point-of-view.

2023 Breeders Cup Filly & Mare Sprint Tips

Much depends on whether Goodnight Olive can run to form when it comes to the 2023 Breeders Cup Filly & Mare Sprint. If the filly is able to reproduce some of her previous performances, then it could be a straightforward win, with the horse finishing second behind favourite Echo Zulu in the recent Ballerina Handicap.

There was only two and a half lengths separating the runners, with the Chad C Brown-trained horse having previously obliged in the Bed o’ Roses Stakes. This victory came at Belmont Park over seven furlongs, with this Grade 2 encounter seeing the favourite oblige by the distance of a neck although the horse did slip up in the preceding encounter.

The filly could only finish in third place when it came to the Derby City Distaff Stakes at Churchill Downs, with Matareya and Wicked Halo having finished ahead of the horse and that will give encouragement to others in the field, with Society certainly difficult to rule out after a string of solid performances that has seen her win the past two outings.

The triumph at Charles town came against two other runners over seven furlongs in fast conditions on 26 August, with the same horse able to previously oblige at odds of 11/5 in the Chicago Stakes. This was an eye-catching win at Ellis Park where she was able to win by over ten lengths and this could be an each-way bet to nothing.

Goodnight Olive is a talented four-year-old that has landed a string of victories. The Ballerina Handicap was an interesting barometer, with four-year-old winning at odds of 58/10 and there were some notable horses that were beaten on that day. That included the 2021 winner of the Fillies and Mares race which was favourite Ce Ce.

The horse won the race by nearly three lengths, although there’s not a bundle of experience compared to the other operators. Echo Zulu is trained by Steven Asmussen and the runner looks like a promising three-year-old who was backed off the boards to win the Dogwood Stakes before winning at Churchill Downs.

Just One Time runs for trainer Brad H Cox and the horse has already landed a win at Keeneland Racecourse this year. It was a straightforward victory in the Madison Stakes over seven furlongs on muddy ground. That was back in April and the runner was also bang in contention on her last outing.

The Derby City Distaff Stakes saw the American horse sent off as the 6/4 favourite before finishing third at Churchill Downs, with Ce Ce bidding to make history and she warmed up nicely with an early October victory when winning the Chillingworth Stakes. That was on fast ground over six-and-a-half furlongs.

Gamine is now trading at odds-on and she is certainly the one to beat in the eyes of the bookies. Bob Baffert managed to get the then-three-year-old spot on twelve months ago when the horse obliged and she’ll be lining up at the age of four. The bookies are now giving her a larger than 50% probability that the horse scoops this major honour once again.

Since that victory at Keeneland on 7 November, Gamine has gone on to score a further four victories and the most recent of these was in the Ketel One Ballerina Handicap at Saratoga, with the horse having previously scored wins at Santa Anita and Churchill Downs last spring. There was also a facile win at Los Alamitos in the summer.

Bella Sofia Second Favourite to win Breeders’ Cup Clash

While Gamine will take all the beating, Bella Sofia is a horse that deserves to take her place among the favourites for this race. She is certainly a young pretender to the crown and the three-year-old looked outstanding in the Gallant Bloom Handicap when winning against three other entrants.

Rudy Rodriguez previously won the Longines Test Stakes when chinning Souper Sensational and Search Results, with the new kid on the block having kicked off her career by claiming victory in an Allowance Race at Belmont Park.

Ce Ce and Edgeway Also have Breeders Cup Claims

Ce Ce will step up in class for this encounter in the Chillingworth Stakes, with Michael McCarthy having claims as the trainer of this talented filly, with the horse having finished third behind Gamine at Saratoga and she has plenty to fine in order to frank the form.

Edgeway has the added advantage of having already won at Del Mar Racecourse and the four-year-old won the Rancho Bernardo Handicap which means that she deserves to take her place in this encounter.
