2020 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Handicapping
The second of five races slated for opening day of the 2020 Breeders’ Cup World Championships, the Juvenile Turf is open to horses age two. They’ll race one mile on the Keeneland turf course.
Last year 5-1 Structor hit the wire first, followed home by 55-1 Billy Batts and 68-1 Gear Jockey, triggering a $2 exacta payout of $518, and $1 trifecta payout just shy of $6000.
Odds listed here are provided by Bovada’s racebook.
2020 Juvenile Turf Free Pick & Handicapping: Battleground Race Odds: 4-1
Kentucky bred but UK-based, Battleground comes in with a two-race win streak on his home soil. After running fifth in his maiden try, he came right back 10 days later to win the Chester Stakes at Royal Ascot.
Next out he stepped up in class again and captured the Group 2 Cliquot Vintage Stakes by two lengths over a very good field going seven furlongs. That came back in July and he’s been away from the races since.
Trainer Aiden O’Brien has won the Juvenile Turf four times, as has jockey Ryan Moore.
2020 Juvenile Turf Free Pick & Handicapping: Cadillac Race Odds: 6-1
Irish-bred colt Cadillac looked very good racing on his home soil this summer, scoring a win in his lifetime debut before stepping up and running second in the Group 2 Irish Futurity and then winning the Group 2 Champions Juvenile Stakes.
He was disappointing last out when finishing fifth in the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket, but that race was run over soft ground that may not have been to his liking.
He’s trained by Jessica Harrington, while jockey Shane Foley gets the mount.
2020 Juvenile Turf Free Pick & Handicapping: New Mandate Race Odds: 8-1
Another Irish bred, New Mandate has raced exclusively in the UK with five lifetime starts, and comes to the Breeders’ Cup on a three-race win streak.
Two starts back he managed to just get up late to win a lower-level stakes event at Doncaster going seven furlongs. He then stepped up to the Group 2 stakes level and again just got up of a 3/4 lengths win at one mile in the Royal Lodge Stakes.
The trainer is Ralph Beckett. Jockey Frankie Detorri has won the BC Juvenile Turf on three previous occasions.
2020 Juvenile Turf Free Pick & Handicapping: Sealiway Race Odds: 10-1
French-bred colt Sealiway has never been out of the money is six lifetime starts and has four wins in that span.
He made his Group stakes debut in the (G3) Prix La Rochette where he was a close-up second, but took a huge step forward next out in the Group 1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere, showing blazing speed in the stretch to pull away and win by eight lengths over a field that included a previous Group 1 winner.
The trainer is Frederic Rossi, while European-based jockey Mickael Barzalona won the BC Turf in 2017.
Here’s My 2020 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Free Pick.
European shippers hold a very strong hand in the Juvenile Turf and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them sweep the top three spots.
The win last out by Sealiway at the top level in France was visually impressive, and I’ll play him for the win here and hope for a repeat effort. It’s notable that the Daily Racing Form handicappers list him as the 5-1 second choice.
