LAS VEGAS -- The Breeders Cup -- held this year Friday and Saturday at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California -- constitutes two of my favorite betting days of the year.For those who dont know, the Breeders Cup (BC) is the championship day for horse racing and we get all the top horses from around the world. Every year, there are big upsets and huge payoffs. This happens because these are all high-quality horses, yet many of them get overlooked by the betting public and go off at higher odds than you would ever see them in regular races -- and odds in excess of their true chances to win.Since 1999, Ive picked every BC race in print or online in the pages of the weekly GamingToday newspaper here in Vegas, then as the Las Vegas correspondent for Daily Racing Form, at my website (where my winners and record of a $3.28 for every $2 wagered is documented) and now for Chalk.This year, Im joined in handicapping some of the races by ESPN senior researcher Chris Fallica. You probably know him as The Bear from College GameDay and from his college football picks here at Chalk, but hes a horse racing experrt in his own right, having qualified for the NTRA National Handicapping Championship the past four years. Joe Thomas Womens Jersey. Here is how were handicapping every Breeders Cup race:Saturday(Note: Santa Anita is hosting the BC this year, but Saturdays nine BC races are Nos. 4-12.)BC Juvenile Fillies (Santa Anita Race 4, approximate post 3:05 p.m. ET)Dave Tuley: The 1-2 finishers from the Alcibiades at Keeneland -- Dancing Rags and Daddys Lil Darling -- arent being given much respect due to their relatively slow times, but Daddys Lil Darling had to be shuffled back a little with horses playing bumper cars in front of her and she was still able to make a big move to finish second by length. If shes able to stick a little closer like she did in her win in the Pochahontas, I think she can win this. Since I like her, I have to include Dancing Rags as a long shot. Im also using Yellow Agate, who is 2-for-2 and adding Lasix, and Noted and Quoted, who is 1-for-1 on this track and trained by Bob Baffert. ' ' '
