#1 an excellent trip behind Beholder, California Chrome and von love520 27.08.2019 05:36

In some minds, the field for the 26th running of the Grade 1, $1 million TVG Pacific Classic at Del Mar consists of Beholder and California Chrome, with the other seven just afterthoughts. For others, the main contenders are not a duo but a trio which includes Dortmund, all competing for a spot in the Breeders Cup Classic in November.California Chrome is the all-time North American earnings leader with $12.65 million banked, winning 13 of 22 races including multiple Grade 1 stakes like this one. The mare Beholder has won 17 of 23 races including last years Pacific Classic. Dortmund, by comparison, has earned two Grade 1 wins (the 2014 Los Alamitos Futurity and the 2015 Santa Anita Derby) in his career but considering he missed by a half-length to California Chrome in last months Grade 2 San Diego Stakes he should be respected. Among the others, 2015 Grade 1 Gold Cup at Santa Anita Stakes winner Hard Aces may be competitive in this group as he won the Grade 3 Cougar II Handicap over the track last month. The rest look overmatched, with the exception of Dalmore, a 3-year-old facing older for the first time, who enters the Classic off a pair of wins including the Grade 3 Affirmed Stakes.Dalmore earned a career-best 113 Equibase Speed Figure winning the Affirmed Stakes last month. Although that figure was below the career best 120 career best California Chrome earned winning the San Diego Handicap in July (with runner-up Dortmund earning a 119 figure) and below the 115 lifetime best figure Hard Aces earned winning the Cougar II Handicap one day after Chrome, it is the next-best last race figure in the field. It is even better than the three figures Beholder has earned this year. Considering Dalmore is just a 3-year-old, he is not even near full maturity and has much better races ahead of him. Trained by Keith Desormeaux and ridden by his brother Kent, Dalmore comes from the same connections as Preakness Stakes and Haskell Invitational Stakes winner Exaggerator so there is little doubt the trainer and jockey know how to get a horse ready for a big race. Dalmore gets the No. 9 post position for the Classic, which will allow Desormeaux an excellent trip behind Beholder, California Chrome and Dortmund, who all like to race on the lead or close to the pace in the early stages. As such, Dalmore has a nice shot to outrun his double-digit odds in the Pacific Classic.California Chrome didnt lose a step between his Group 1 Dubai World Cup victory in March and his San Diego Handicap win last month when he earned a career-best 120 figure. One of only three horses among the nine entered in the Classic to have won at a mile and a quarter, California Chrome has done so four times, proving he is truly a classic distance runner. With all horses except the mare Beholder and 3-year-old Dalmore assigned the same 124 pounds, there is no handicap in that department and from the rail regular jockey Victor Espinoza can go to the early lead or sit behind Dortmund or Beholder if either one of them choose to lead from the start. Personally, I cant find a single flaw that would have me believe California Chrome may be the anything other than the most probable to win the Classic. However, because he will be the prohibitive favorite he may not offer the most value as a win bet.Beholder is undoubtedly one of the best female stars in horse racing, having won 17 of 23 races and nearly $5 million. Never worse than second in six career races at Del Mar, she dispatched a field of 10 in last years Classic with a 116 figure, one below a career-best 117 earned winning the 2013 Breeders Cup Distaff. Last years Classic was her first attempt at this mile and a quarter trip and she handled it with ease. This year Beholder won her first two races but was upset in the Clement L. Hirsch Stakes over the track last month. Regular rider Gary Stevens knows her well and even though her recent figures of 105 and 107 seem far from the 120 and 110 California Chrome earned this year in North America, Beholder stepped up from a 106 figure to 116 in last years Classic so could be up to the task once more.For the exacta, considering Dalmore opens at 20-1 odds, he represents value even if he finishes second, so playing exacta boxes consisting of Dalmore/Beholder, Dalmore/California Chrome and Dalmore/Dortmund offers excellent potential return for the risk.The rest of the Pacific Classic field, with their best representative Equibase Speed Figures, is Dortmund (119), Hard Aces (115), Hoppertunity (114), Imperative (114), War Story (102) and Win the Space (112).Contenders, in preference order1.
