Former Inquirer staff handicapper Craig Donnelly makes some wagers on Saturday's Breeders' Cup card at Santa Anita in California:
SaturdayFilly & Mare Sprint
Groupie Doll appears in peak form; loves this distance, showing terrific closing kick; and fires at numerous venues; short price to win but use in gimmicks. Dust And Diamonds impressed last summer at Delaware and improving with each start; competed well over local course earlier when not the horse she is now. Turbulent Descent failed to give true measure as Belmont favorite but excels at this yardage and captured Santa Anita Oaks last season.
