Breeders Crown Elims Preview - Friday Night

The eliminations for the Breeders Crown finals are being contested this Friday and Saturday at the Meadowlands.  Here is a preview of the elimination races being contested on Friday.

2 Year Old Filly Trot

1st Division (2nd Race) - Mission Brief is the type of horse who, if stay flat, win.  Clearly the best horse in the race but will offer no value considering the occasional miscues.  Danielle Hall jumped off last time and finished second to Mission Brief in Goldsmith Maid elimination.  If she stays flat, she may be the one to beat.  Smexi pulled off a massive upset in the Goldsmith Maid final.  Would need a perfect trip to be a factor; can't ignore.  Others who may qualify for the final are Hot Start and the lightly raced Scented Roses.

2nd Division (12th Race) - Stubborn Belle has been racing against better and gets my pick.   Wild Honey is 9 for 10 but mostly in lower level stakes; value won't be there.  Sarcy has been suffering from seconditis.  Will be competitive and may complete exotics.  Bright Baby Blues should advance if stays flat.  Livinthefastlance may improve rating.

2 Year Old Filly Pace 

1st Division (3rd Race) - The nations #1 horse and undefeated JK Shesalady is the obvious horse to pick.  Only knock will be the odds.  Sassaa Hanover has regained her peak form; can you ever ignore the Burke stable?  Bettor Be Stephen races her best from the outside and draws the favored post.  The how Returns and  Sassa Hanovrer look to compete in next week's final.

2nd Division (6th Race) -   Well Hello There has the rail for Burke and appears to be the best here.  Happy Becky qualified off disappointing start, can land here.  Heart Major steps up in clalss here; will see if can handle this type of horse.  Ideal Nuggets has raced in better stakes; can improve rating.  Improving Divine Caroline sees another week.

3 Year Old Filly Pace 

1st Division (4th Race) - Major Dancer been consistent of late; as good chance to win here.  Sayitall BB is another Burke pacer who raced well in the Midwest and returns to the site of fastest victory.  Act Now is the class of the Midwest but failed in her east coast start; use with caution.  Beach Girl seems to have a lot going for her but gets trapped in traffic.  If Jamieson can avoid traffic,this one could shock.  Gettingreadytoroll advances to next week'sfinal.

2nd Division (7th Race) -  Color's A Virgin is running a winning streak; should add to streak but offers no value.  Uffizi Hanover is a horse I am waiting to pop.  Doubt it is today but can add some value to exotics.  Weeper draws outside but still should land share.  Precious Beauty is a possible upset candidate; consider with proper odds.  Allstar Rating completes field.
