Full Card Chart – results and payouts (pdf)
In addition to our picks for each Breeders’ Cup race, our friends at WirePlayers have challenged us to friendly a head to head challenge! Each team (HRF & WirePlayers) will do picks as usual (see below), with each selection getting points for win, place show:
Win = 5 points, Place = 2 points and Show = 1 point.
Here’s an example, let’s say that in the Juvenile Sprint, Shumoos wins, Trinniberg places and Sum of the Parts shows. That would mean HRF would 15 points (2 wins, 2 places, 1 show). You can see WirePlayers selections here and follow along with my running commentary at @helloracefans.
Whoever has the most points for the two days wins and the losers will donate $100 to the charity of the winner’s choice. WirePlayers has selected After the Finish Line and we’ve selected ReRun. Best of luck to everyone and check out our Ladies Classic and Classic Cheat Sheets if you’re not familiar with the fields!
Note: Teresa Genaro has graciously stepped down from scoring in the the Head to Head Challenge to ensure the teams are even… no doubt this means you should play her picks!
