2020 Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes Handicapping
A packed weekend schedule of graded stakes racing at Keenland includes the (G1) Shadwell Turf Mile, open to horses aged three and older.
The Shadwell is a ‘Win And You’re In’ race for the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Mile to be run at Keeneland on November 7. The race has drawn an international field of 11 and represents great betting value as reflected in the morning line odds where all runners are at 5-2 or higher.
Odds listed here are provided by the Keeneland track handicapper.
2020 Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Halladay Race Odds: 5-2
The lukewarm ML favourite, Halladay has had a fairly successful 2020, with three wins in five starts, although it is notable he finished off the board in his other two efforts.
He comes in off a wire-to-wire victory in the (G1) Fourstardave Handicap going one mile on the inner turf at Saratoga. It was the first graded-stakes victory of his career in his second attempt. He also beat a runner in that one that came back to win his next race, always a significant handicapping angle.
Trainer Todd Pletcher is going for his first Shadwell title since 2005, while jockey Luis Saez won in 2015.
2020 Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Analyze It Race Odds: 9-2
Fourth in this race two years ago, Analyze It built off that effort to run third in the 2018 BC Mile. He then went on the shelf for almost two years, but came back to the races in early September to capture the one mile (G3) Red Bank Stakes at Monmouth Park.
For his career he’s been in the money in eight-of-nine lifetime starts with four wins. The last eight of his races have all been at the graded-stakes level, although he’s still looking for his first Grade 1 win.
Trainer Chad Brown is also going for his first Shadwell win, jockey Tyler Gaffalione rode the winner in 2018.
2020 Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Flavius Race Odds: 9-2
While he lacks some of the back class of others in here making only his second lifetime graded-stakes start, Flavius draws interest off a track-record time win in the Tourist Mile at Kentucky Downs one month ago.
A Kentucky-bred that was a stakes winner early in his career racing in Ireland, he’s been on the edges in four starts in the US in the past year, with two fourth-place finishes and one third-place finish prior to his breakthrough in the Tourist.
He’s another Chad Brown trainee, Ricardo Santana Jr. gets the call to ride.
2020 Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Spectacular Gem Race Odds: 15-1
A pedestrian sixth going 1 1/8 miles last out in the (G1) Old Forrester Bourbon Turf Classic at Churchill Downs, Spectacular Gem now cuts back to the one-mile distance where he’s won four times in eight tries.
While his best success has come at the lower stakes levels, he has good early speed and could find himself sitting just off what’s expected to be a fast pace as they turn for home. A best-effort could get him a piece at big odds.
He’s trained by James Baker, James Graham is the jockey.
Here’s My 2020 Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes Free Pick.
While Analyze It’s last-out speed figure is weak against some of the others in here, coming back to win after almost a two-year off is a positive sign in and of itself. He now gets his second start off the layoff and should be primed for a big effort.
I’m gong to play him for the win and I’ll be thrilled if I can get 9-2. I’ll use Halladay and Spectacular Gem underneath in the exacta.
Long shot – Spectacular Gem
