2021 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint Handicapping
The second day of the 2021 Breeders’ Cup gets underway with the Filly and Mare Sprint, where they will be racing 7 furlongs on the Del Mar dirt course.
With three legitimate superstars entered, the race has drawn a small field of only six entries. Historically favourites have won at a slightly above average rate of 37%.
Odds listed here are provided by Bovada’s racebook.
2021 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint Free Pick & Handicapping: Gamine Race Odds: 4-7
The defending race champ last year as a three-year-old, Gamine returns to try and defend her title with another year’s worth of experience under her saddle.
A winner of 9-of-10 lifetime, including a perfect four-for-four at the distance, she’s put more than $1.6 million in the bank for her career so far. She comes in off a win in the (G1) Ballerina Stakes, and has won her last five by a combined 24 1/2 lengths.
Trainer Bob Baffert and jockey John Velazquez team up again to go for the double.
2021 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint Free Pick & Handicapping: Bella Sofia Race Odds: 3-1
No slouch herself, Bella Sofia has raced five times in her career and won four of them, with one runner-up finish. Last out she went wire-to-wire to take the (G2) Gallant Bloom Handicap over a runner who came back to win her next start.
She also has a Grade 1 victory to her name after taking the Test Stakes by a comfortable four lengths in a race that was run at this 7 furlong distance.
Rudy Rodriguez trains, while jockey Luis Saez is tapped to ride.
2021 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint Free Pick & Handicapping: Ce Ce Race Odds: 5-1
A five-year-old mare with 15 lifetime starts, Ce Ce almost never runs a bad race, winning 7 and finishing in the money 10 times in 15 starts.
She comes in off an easy five-length win in the (G3) Chillingworth Stakes, and prior to that she was a game third, beaten three lengths by Gamine in the Ballerina after something of a wide trip. The question for her is if she has enough overall speed to hang with the top two.
She’s a Michael McCarthy trainee, veteran Victor Espinoza gets the riding assignment.
2021 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint Free Pick & Handicapping: Estilo Talentoso Race Odds: 14-1
While she only has three wins in 17 starts – and only one in eight tries this year – Estilo Talentoso has also never finished out of the money, running second or third 14 times. And it’s not like she’s been shying away from the tough races either, as all of her last six starts have been in graded stakes.
At the same time, she’s been beaten twice by both Gamine and Ce Ce, and so likely needs to run the race of her life to turn the tables on both of those, let alone Bella Sofia.
Juan Arrigada is the trainer, Jose Ortiz will be in the saddle.
Here’s My 2021 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint Free Pick.
Make no mistake – the top two contenders here are very fast and very good, and their combined record of 13 wins in 15 starts speaks for itself.
But as they say, pace makes the race, and both of these fillies want the lead. There’s a legitimate scenario where they could duel each other into the dirt and open the door for an upset.
I’m going to bet on that, and take Ce Ce for the win in a race where it’s not uncommon for the early speed to collapse.
Longshot pick: Ce Ce
