Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and Classic Races Preview
Jackie’s Warrior naturally gets out at a quick pace, so if he loses, it will happen because he ran out of gas early and falls prey to a stalker who ends up turning up the gas down the stretch.
Calibrate is an interesting sleeper. He ran in the Breeders’ Futurity (Grade I), got off to a flat start and finished 13 ¼ lengths back, in sixth place. The fact that trainer Steven Asmussen wants to enter him here may indicate that he has seen something in the morning workouts that suggests a different outcome. He did post a 97 TimeformUS Speed Figure in his maiden on August 15, winning by 4 ½ lengths at Saratoga.
Classier comes from Bob Baffert’s stable, and he won his maiden at Santa Anita by four lengths, posting a 99 TimeformUS figure, which would make him very competitive on Saturday. But can he prosper on a longer course with two runs?
Essential Quality has two wins in two starts, highlighted by a 3 ¼-length win at the Breeders’ Futurity. He pressed Upstriker in the early going and then pulled away from the rest of the field down the stretch. He posted a 101 TimeformUS figure, which is competitive – but if we remember that Jackie’s Warrior’s last figure was a 117, we see that Essential Quality will need to make the best of his tactical speed. He’s definitely an interesting pick in the trifecta or superfecta.
