2022 Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies Betting Odds at Santa Anita racecourse

Friday, 04 November 2022

The Juvenile Fillies’ race is set to be something special this year although it’s worth paying attention to see which horse Joel Rosario is riding. The leading jockey has ridden the winner of three of the past four renewals, steering Jaywalk to victory in 2018 before returning to steer Vequist home in 2020 and then triumphing on Echo Zulu twelve months ago.

Wonder Wheel has previously succeeded at Keeneland and it might be the filly that they all have to beat, although two-year-old races can often be unpredictable. Chocolate Gelato might be a tasty selection and has shown some early promise, while And Tell Me Nolies has to be respected based on form.

2022 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Tips

Wonder Wheel has already secured a couple of notable victories this year. The debut outing saw the two-year-old triumph in the Debutante Stakes at Churchill Downs on 4 July, although that was only a three-runner race. However, the filly was beaten as favourite in the Spinaway Stakes at Saratoga before returning to the winners’ enclosure at Keeneland.

There was plenty to like about the way in which the horse set about her business in the Darley Alcibiades Stakes and the Mark Casse-trained runner obliged as favourite when beating thirteen other two-year-old fillies. It was noticeable that Wonder Wheel only just managed to hold on on that occasion.

As for Chocolate Gelato, we have seen a win at Saratoga and Belmont Park this season. Todd Pletcher trains a talented two-year-old that won a Maiden Special Weight before heading to the Frizette Stakes and claiming a Group 1 success. Over one mile on sloppy ground, it certainly set a marker for the Breeders’ Cup.

Peter Miller is the trainer of And Tell Me Nolies and this horse hasn’t put a hoof wrong as a two-year-old, earning her place as one of the favourites for the Juvenile Fillies’ race. A victory in the Chandelier Stakes was impressive on a dirt track at Santa Anita, with favourite Justique beaten on that occasion and it’s going to be one hell of a race.
