Pacific Classic (08/21/15)

In-depth analysis of the 2015 Pacific Classic including Pace Figures and Past Performances each starter. Please refer to the Legend or Pattern Guide for back-up definitions and patterns.

The Grade I Pacific Classic betting board is as wide-open as you would wish for a Grade I event. There are six horses with morning-line odds from 5/2 to 6/1 led by the best mare in the country, Beholder. And while there are three, two-time winners in the field, a female winner has yet to happen.

Here are the Pace Figures and Past Performances for the Pacific Classic as well as the written analysis for the main competitors.

Bayern (6/1)

The winner of the 2014 Breeders' Cup Classic, Bayern has earned the most money in the field at. $4.4mm. He looks to be slowly rounding back into for the Silver Fox, Bob Baffert. He's got a strong work pattern with ideal spacing.

He owns the highest lifetime Average Final and 4f figure and his 81.4 lifetime top at 10f is the highest at the distance in the group.

The leading Jockey at Del Mar, Raphael Bejarano picks up the mount for the first time, a rate pairing for Baffert (.33% win).

The Play: Average – if he runs back to his top (in this, fourth start this year), he wins. Still, he might need another start.
