2016 Breeders’ Cup Results: Cashing In on the Cup
- Updated: November 7, 2016
Wow! What an incredible two days of racing. The showcase races, the Distaff and Classic, lived up to all the hype. Beholder, the top Super Screener win pick, who finished 2nd to California Chrome in the G1 Pacific Classic but was out gamed twice by Stellar Wind, went off at an insanely generous 3-1, defeated by just a nose the undefeated Songbird making her first start against older. It was a thrilling finish as Stellar Wind got knocked out early due to a rough start so that left Beholder and Songbird dueling down the stretch in the most epic of battles.
This is what the Super Screener had to say about Beholder:
Here’s how the recommended wagers did for the Distaff:
In the Classic, it set up as expected. The top Super Screener super confident win pick was Arrogate and it was expected that he and California Chrome would draw away from the field engaging in their own match race…and that’s exactly what happened. Turning for home it looked like California Chrome was going to give Arrogate the slip but when Arrogate finally switched leads in mid-stretch, he found that other gear and ran down a determined California Chrome to validate his status and the #1 win pick for the Super Screener.
Here’s what he Super Screener projected for Arrogate:
Here’s how the recommended wagers did for the Classic:
STAND AGAINST FAVORITES
One of the objectives of the Super Screener is to identify vulnerable low-prices horses and take a stand against them to help focus on value. This year was no exception and here are the highlights of low-priced and often fan-favorite horses that disappointed:
The only favorite that the Super Screener took a firm stand against that performed well was Masochistic in the Sprint finishing second to Drefong at 7-5 just holding off our top long shot bomber in the race, Mind Your Biscuits 15-1, who passed Masochistic a jump after the wire. Ugh!
TOP LONG SHOT BOMBERS
Now, probably the most prized value generated by the Super Screener is isolating those 15-1+ shots from the many long shots in a race that has the best shot to hit the Superfecta. This year, the Super Screener produced again and again on this front as the following highlights show:
Other highlights of suggested wagers that cashed included the following scores:
Turf: $30 Exacta Highland Reel over Flintshire = $432
Classic: $2 Superfecta and $30 Exacta with Arrogate on top = $742
