Horse racing handicapping is a game of skill. Period. Experienced horseplayers have an edge over less experienced players, but the beautiful thing about this sport is that one is always learning. Even the novice player can “out-handicap” or I should say outperform the more experienced horseplayer on any given day. There is always something to learn in this game and there are always ways to improve one’s handicapping.
Last weekend (Nov. 2-3) I offered my Breeders’ Cup analysis in a paid format for the first time ever. I didn’t like the Friday card and the results showed that. I warned readers to tread lightly on Friday for that very reason.
However, I loved Saturday’s card and fortunately things came together as hoped. As part of the full-card analysis, I also recommended 5 spot plays/wagering suggestions.
Here is a recap of the Saturday Breeders’ Cup Spot Plays analysis.

Top pick 4-1 Noble Tune finished 2nd. No spot play given.
