A pretty simple question to kick off the Tuesday morning before Super Saturday: how would you rate the current contenders for the 2011 Breeders' Cup Classic? Which horses do you think will be the top five in terms of betting action on race day, assuming nothing significant changes during the races this weekend?
Below is as list of the top Classic contenders.* Three of the horses have already guaranteed a spot in the starting gate by winning a Breeders' Cup Challenge race - Acclamation, Coil, and Tizway. (First Dude also won a WAYI race but was retired due to injury.)
*This is just a quick list of contenders; if you think another horse deserves inclusion in the discussion, by all means, toss them in.
Blind Luck (most likely going to Ladies' Classic)
Game On Dude
Havre de Grace
Prayer for Relief
Ruler On Ice
So You Think (NZ)
To Honor and Serve
