With Flightline headed to stud, the older horse dirt division lacks a standout entering 2023. Let's examine six contenders.

Nest rates as my best bet on Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup program, and I will key her in Pick 3 wagers surrounding the Distaff (G1).

Flightline will bring superstar billing to the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1), overpowering the competition in five career starts, but he’s yet to beat the best. That opportunity comes at Keeneland on Nov. 5.

Flightline is an imposing 3-5 morning line favorite against seven rivals in the $6 million Classic (G1), but let's answer the following question: “Who to bet if trying to beat Flightline?”

Juveniles will be showcased in five Breeders’ Cup races at Keeneland Friday, and my strongest opinion comes in the finale.

Following a second against males in June’s Belmont S. (G1), Nest stepped up with a series of stunning performances, winning the Coaching Club American Oaks (G1), Alabama (G1), and Beldame (G2) by a combined 26 1/4 lengths.

Speed rules for Golden Pal, who led rivals gate-to-wire winning the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint (G2) and Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) the last two seasons, and the four-year-old seeks to become only the third horse to capture three Breeders’ Cup races when lining up for a title defense in the $1 million Turf Sprint at Keeneland on Nov. 5.

Jackie’s Warrior has been a brilliant one-turn performer over the past three seasons, but the one distinction missing from a Hall of Fame-worthy resume is a Breeders’ Cup win.
