Tips For Betting On Breeders Stakes – Irish Mission Takes On For The Ladies

Posted by Marco Sussman on 7/31/2012 6:16:33 PM

Sports betting players could be witnessing the end of an era as The Breeders’ may not be coming back to Woodbine, but the final leg of the Canadian Triple Crown could go out with a bang as a filly will steal the show, although female horses have won this race 27 times.

What: Horse Betting
When: Sunday, August 5th, post time TBD
Where: Woodbine Racetrack, Toronto, CA
Pick: Irish Mission

Strait of Dover was going to be a popular pick among horse betting players after winning the Queen’s Plate in June, setting a record for the track with a blistering time and the three-year-old Colt has now won four straight races and four of five overall in his career. He would have been the favorite, you could assume, but Strait of Dover is out for the season with a leg injury and the field is wide open, especially with Dixie Strike passing up a chance to win two jewels of the Canadian Triple Crown, which no horse has done since A Bit O’ Gold in 2004.

After finishing third in the Queen’s Plate, Dixie Strike won the second leg of the Canadian Triple Crown, the Prince of Wales Stakes at Fort Erie, but has decide to sit out the Breeders’ in order to run in the Alabama Stakes next month Saratoga. Aldous Snow will step in to take the place of Dixie Strike after winning an allowance race at Woodbine on turf, which is what the Breeders’ is run on. Some fans and experts have high hopes for Aldous Snow, and with Strait of Dover and Dixie Strike out, this is a massive chance for the three-year-old.

Ultimate Destiny finished second to Dixie Strike at the Prince of Wales in his first race outside of Woodbine, and this gelding has also been touted for greatness. Ultimate Destiny did well to improve on his fifth-place showing at the Queen’s Plate and he is another horse that has a major opportunity to get into the spotlight with the first two winners out.

Irish Mission showed she could run with the boys by finishing second to Strait of Dover at the Queen’s Plate, and even though she struggled to a sixth-place run at the Prince of Wales, the result at the Queen’s Plate is something for horse betting players to hang their hats on. Six of her 10 races have come at Woodbine, so Irish Mission will be happy to get back there after fading at Fort Erie.

River Rush was a horse betting favorite at the Queen’s Plate after rolling to a win at the Plate trial, but the colt fell to sixth place and hasn’t run in a race since then as his handlers try to build him back up. The Plate Trial was only his third race and first that wasn’t a maiden, so people may have been a bit overanxious to crown him. He is well rested now, so River Rush could be ready to show what he is made of.

Colleen’s Sailor could be an intriguing darkhorse at the Breeders’ after finishing fourth at the Queen’s Plate and third at the Prince of Wales, which was, like Ultimate Destiny, the first time outside of Woodbine for Colleen’s Sailor, who has two wins in eight starts, but those came in an allowance and a maiden race. Still, his performances in the first two legs of the Canadian Triple Crown were solid and with a few breaks, Colleen’s Sailor could end up in the winner’s circle at Woodbine.

The horse betting odds for this race really got thrown for a loop when Strait of Dover went down as everyone knew that Dixie Strike wasn’t going to start in the Breeders’ as he heads south to Saratoga Springs. Many were expecting a romp for Strait of Dover, but now the field is wide open and out of the 14 horses that are lining up so far to start at the Prince of Wales, you could say that at least half the field has a legitimate shot at coming away with the win.

The Breeders’ is a war of attrition as 1 ½ miles and the horse that deals with the second half of the race the best will be the winner, and you should go outside the box to take Irish Mission in what could be the final edition of The Breeders’ at Woodbine, which is experiencing financial difficulties. As was mentioned before, fillies have always placed well at The Breeders and Irish Mission will continue that legacy. Take her in your online betting book.
