Ladies’ Classic Highlights Friday’s 2012 Breeders’ Cup Racing Schedule

Few will ever forget Zenyatta, the Grand Lady of horse racing, when the Ladies’ Classic is mentioned in handicapping circles at Santa Anita Park and around the globe. The legendary Dark Bay/Brown Mare stormed from the back of the pack and caught the field in the final 200 yards to capture the 2008 Breeders Cup Ladies’ Classic in trademark Zenyatta fashion.

This amazing Champion ran the exact same race in 2010 to become the first female horse to win the big one – the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Both races were run in the shadows of the purple San Gabriel Mountains at Santa Anita Park. Royal Delta has as chance to win back-to-back in the Ladies’ Classic after she won this ladies main event race at Churchill Downs in 2011.

Championship Field heads to the gate for the 2012 Ladies’ Classic

This year’s Ladies’ Classic, schedule for post at 7:30 PM ET on Friday, is destined to be the most hotly contested race of the weekend. Defending Champion Royal Delta, who won this race in come from behind fashion at Churchill Downs last year, will led an amazing field of Ladies to the gate as a 9-5 favorite. This Empire Maker filly is full marks for her chalk status.

Awesome Feather (3-1) and My Miss Aurelia (4-1) who are Eclipse Award winners along with Royal Delta, and Questing (4-1) round out the top four favorites. In an All-Star Ladies’ Classic field “longshot” is an oxymoron but some runners do carry big prices. Love and Pride (8-1) deserves consideration as she defeated Royal Delta in the G1 Personal Ensign Stakes.

World Class Thoroughbred Racing is Bolstered by Online Betting Options

You know you’re in for one hell of a race when the longshot in the field (Class Included 30-1) heads to the gate with 10 Wins and 6 Place finishes – in 16 career starts. Nicknamed Blondie for the white hair in her tail, Class Included is making a huge step up and is not recommended but this shows the depth of what will be a thrilling 2012 Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic.

Premier online racebooks, like the one at the sports wagering website, will be all over the two days of action during the Breeders’ Cup 2012 World Championships. Royal Delta didn’t follow the lead of Zenyatta before her and move up to join the boys in the Breeders’ Cup Classic this year. There are $2 million reasons for that – she is going to be tough to beat today.
