Watsdachances American Turf Juveniles Are Better Than a Euro Shipper?

Today’s featured P G Johnson Stakes for juveniles on the turf is always an interesting event, both from a betting and Breeders’ Cup predictive point of reference.

The interesting runner in here might also be the most talented. Of course, it remains to be seen whether Watsdachances (4-1) is capable of what he’s being asked here.

She has two-race experience after breaking maiden in Ireland this spring by daylight and makes her U.S. debut for Chad Brown, 26% effective with 90+days layoffs and is an otherworldly 46% profitable when adding Lasix for first time.

Johnny Velazquez takes the call on this intriguing runner, taking on some talented fillies but whose ultimate class level is also unknown. For more than two decades, European shippers have proven superior to our turf runners and we’re thinking that trend will continue today.

Taking Watsdachances to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing her in the exacta with any and all members of the Catalano-trained entry (15-1), headed by Oscar Party.

Running Totals: (1153) 354-222-173 Total Dollar Return: $2,432.00 [win selections only]
