2022 Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf Betting Odds at Santa Anita racecourse

Friday, 04 November 2022

There’s a big prize pot available for this one-mile encounter at the Breeders’ Cup meeting, with the Juvenile Fillies Turf bringing together some talented two-year-old female horses and previous recent winners have included Pizza Bianca, Aunt Peal and Sharing, with the race having been in operation since 2008.

Trainer Chad Brown dominated the race between 2014 and 2018, securing four victories in the space of five years, although it’s Blue Rose Cen who arguably boasts the strongest credentials. Fairy Cross and Delight are trading at a slightly bigger price, although Meditate is likely to be a popular each-way selection.

Blue Rose Cen has been impressing at Longchamp recently and it will be interesting to see how her French racing form stacks up when she heads to the Breeders Cup. In early September, there was an impressive performance to win the Prix d'Aumale over one mile on soft ground and the horse looked to show a good turn of speed on that occasion.

Blue Rose Cen was sent off at a similar price in the Qatar Prix Marcel Boussac - Criterium des Pouliches before landing a hefty sum of prize money, with the filly able to travel well despite the very soft ground although she might expect conditions to be entirely different at Keeneland on a firmer surface.

Perhaps we’ll see a Godolphin winner this time around and there is plenty to recommend Fairy Cross. The two-year-old was last seen at Goodwood Racecourse in England where she obliged in the William Hill Prestige Fillies’ Stakes, obliging as the 2/1 favourite when winning by a single length and there could be more to come.

Don’t rule out Meditate from challenging hard in this race. The two-year-old wasn’t able to oblige with a victory last time out although there was plenty to like about her win in the Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes when losing by under a length. Aidan O’Brien has reported that she’s in good order and there was also a second place in the Moyglare Stud Stakes.
