2022 Breeders Cup Filly and Mare Sprint Betting Odds at Keeneland racecourse

Saturday, 05 November 2022

Goodnight Olive’s connections will be hoping it’s Goodnight Vienna for her rivals when this talented filly takes to the track. Chad Brown has previously triumphed in this US race with Wavell Avenue and that was in 2015, with the trainer now having a lively contender who has already been racking up the wins this season.

Echo Zulu runs for trainer Steven Asmussen, with the horse having secured a victory at Churchill Downs and there should be lots of each-way value in the race. Just One Time merits respect and this is one of the races where there are horses of varying ages that are competing for honours.

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.
