/24-7PressRelease/ - OCEANPORT, NJ, October 26, 2007 - The Breeders' Cup, the "other" Fall Classic, is upon us once again. Historically, the Breeders' Cup races have been chock full of long shots. There is no reason this year should be any different. Furthermore, analysis of the races by WinningPonies.com, a state of the art horse racing handicapping service, indicates that history may very well repeat itself.
The Breeders' Cup races have often been a handicapper's worst nightmare. Handicappers can spend days analyzing each race and when the time comes, there will be one or more winners who seem to have no positive angle.
One of the reasons for the difficulty in handicapping these races is that there are no poor horses. The horse that appears worst in a race still has a chance to take the top prize. If this "worst" horse is in great form, anything can happen. Another source of difficulty is the fact that these horses ship in to the host track from all over and quite possibly have never ran there before. For these horses, there is no telling how much they will like the track.
James Morrison, President of Operations, explains further. "Breeders' Cup is the Pro Bowl for thoroughbreds. Sometimes choosing one horse over another is like trying to determine who is a better NFL quarterback, Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. There may be no clear cut answer. The only one certainty in the Breeders' Cup is that there will be long shot winners and monster prices on exotics. There is no doubt that there will be major overlays. The key is trying to identify which horses they will be."
Despite the inherent difficulty in handicapping these races, WinningPonies.com will give its customers a fighting chance. Last year, they hit the Exacta in the Breeders' Cup Classic and the cold Trifecta in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies. They had a great run this year in big races, nailing the Trifecta in the Kentucky Derby, the cold Exacta in the Belmont Stakes, and the Exacta in the Arlington Million.
Of the 11 Breeders' Cup races, handicappers at WinningPonies.com feel that there could be some major overlays in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, the Breeders' Cup Fillies and Mares Turf, the Breeders' Cup Mile, and the Breeders' Cup Distaff. To see further in-depth analysis of all 11 races, WinningPonies.com has created a free Breeders' Cup analysis page, which shows their top selections in each race, along with commentary. The analysis page, however, is geared for fast and firm track conditions. Unlike many handicapping services, on their standard selection forms, WinningPonies.com analyzes each race for all possible track conditions. The selection form also includes complete past performance data for all entries on the card. Their pricing is extremely competitive as well (the two Monmouth Park cards are priced at $5.00 each).
WinningPonies.com is a state of the art handicapping website, owned by WinningPonies, Inc., a privately held Nevada corporation with headquarters in Las Vegas. WinningPonies, Inc. has satellite offices in New York, NY, Miami, FL, Scottsdale, AZ, and Los Angeles, CA.
