This is Imperial Hint's race to lose, but I sure do like Limo Liberal. Hard trying horse deserves a big one.

A little strange that considering all the criticism American racing takes all year for breeding for speed, dirt, sprinters etc. that this race only attracted 9 runners.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I feel like this division took some big hits with injuries and horses running in other BC races. I can think of 5 that would be big contenders in this race who aren't here.

Army Mule was injured, Bobby Abu Dhabi died, City of Light, Mind Your Biscuits are in other races on the BC card, Ransom the Moon is idk where.

The horse I like most on the entire card is Limousine Liberal in this spot. I think he's in excellent form and he loves Churchill.

possibly or partly because the one turn mile siphoned off some runners. This is a rare(ish) year when the mile is one turn and more like an elongated sprint.

You can add XY Jet, who apparently needs some time off, to the list of really good sprinters who aren't in the race.

I was actually wondering about Ransom the Moon. He ran like he needed a race in the prep at Santa Anita and then nothing. He was scheduled to be retired after the BC.
