2023 Best Pal Stakes Odds & Betting Prediction

A small field of five are due to head down to post for the G3 Best Pal at Del Mar. Bob Baffert is seeking a tenth victory in the race and is likely to saddle the top two in the market, Muth and Prince of Monaco. Both will be looking to win their first graded prize and follow up their impressive debut performances. Here is the 2023 Best Pal Stakes Odds.

Breeders Cup Odds

Best Pal Stakes

Grade 3, 6 furlongs, open to horses aged two. Total prize pool: $200,000

Even before he took to the track Muth had the horse racing industry abuzz when he fetched $2,000,000 in the sales. Impeccably bred, he was sent to train with Bob Baffert and routed the field in his debut back at Santa Anita in June. 

With all eyes on the 2023 Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity due to be held in September, Baffert will be hoping he can confirm his exciting potential once again and cement his position as the early race favorite.

Another horse eyeing up Futurity honors will be Muth’s stablemate Prince of Monaco

Like Muth, he has just had the one career start but won his debut in equally as impressive fashion. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see both Baffert horses fill out the top two places. 

Hoping to serve it up to the Baffert pair will be three other runners.

A popular alternative is bound to be Tranche. Trained by Luis Mendez, this will be his fourth start. Slow to get off the mark, he tasted defeat in his first two runs but bounced back nicely with an impressive seven length victory in the 2023 Fasig-Tipton Futurity. He managed to beat another top Baffert horse that day in the shape of Mirahmadi, and his connections will be hoping he can repeat that feat once again. 

Doug O’Neill has long been regarded as one of the savviest trainers in America and although Raging Torrent is likely to start at a large price he isn’t without a hope. 

His one and only start yielded a three length win where he finished above a group of well fancied horses which included Mirahmadi and Tall Paul. Whilst the nature of his victory wasn’t as impressive as some of his rivals, he could be an attractive option at a price. 

Rounding out the five runner field is Who is Pavel. Likely to start as the outsider, he looks to be well up against it as his one and only start saw him finish well down the field in the fifth. 

However, his connections must think plenty of him if they are pitching him into a contest as strong as this. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he were to be the pace angle of the race. 

Best Pal Betting Prediction

With just five runners in this year’s renewal of the Best Pal Stakes it’s hard to look beyond both Bob Baffert horses. Whilst Prince of Monaco certainly has a chance, Muth is one of the most talked about horses in America and we are backing him to confirm all of his potential and win a first graded prize
