A summary of the top picks from the authors at And Down The Stretch They Come.

UPDATED: The table now included Jared' picks. And send a "congrats" to him and his wife on their new baby. Awesome news!

TF Tribe, JP and myself are proud to present out 2012 Breeders' Cup Staff Picks. These selections are either going to make you very rich or... well, it's not our fault if they all run up the track.

  • All three of us have Executiveprivilege as our top pick in the Juvenile Fillies. Over the last couple of weeks I've felt that she'd be the heaviest favorite on the weekend and I haven't wavered too much from that belief.
  • Typical of the wide-open nature of the Breeders' Cup, TFTribe, JP and I picked completely different horses in 6 of the 15 races, including the Classic.

Use this thread for all of your Breeders' Cup eve discussion.
