Breeders' Cup Classic Picks -- Arrogate to Win

The key  question about the  upcoming Breeders Cup Classic is "which Arrogate will show up?"

We expect that It will be an Arrogate who will be   close  to  the form he showed in his huge four-race win streak  that culminated in his win  in the Dubai World Cup on March 29.

And keep  in mind that he was strong at the end of the Pacific Classic at Del Mar where he lost by a half length to  Collected.

We admire the gutsy Gun Runner. But we expect that Arrogate will pass him.

Others to be considered are the speedy Collected and West Coast, along with the late-running and South Florida-stabled  Gunnevera.

Our  longshot to  hit the board is War Story, who  could be clunking along and pass any tiring leaders.

Mubtaahij, now in the Bob Baffert barn, also has to be considered for the tri and super.

Our predictions
First --  Arrogate   1
Second -- Gun Runner 5
Third -_ West Coast  8
Fourth --  Gunnevera  9
Fifth  --  War Story  4
-- Jim Freer
