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

The $1 million Jockey Club Gold Cup highlights a Super Saturday of racing at both Belmont Park on Long Island and Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky. There are a total of seven Grade I stakes between the two tracks, of which all are part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge Series highlighted by the Grade I Shadwell Turf Mile which will air live on NBC Sports beginning at 5pm ET.

Wicked Strong (6/1)

Our selection in the Woodward, Wicked Strong ran a distant third to Liam's Map, a late arriving very good horse who will likely take up as the fourth choice in the Breeders' Cup Classic. Trainer Jimmy Jerkens is trying to get him back heading the right direction. The jockey change to front end riding master Joel Rosario could help keep him more forwardly placed though at a 10 furlongs on “Big Sandy,” the starting gate is placed in the middle of the turn (giving the outside runners a better angle to break).

His most recent final figure is a 77.2 making him a competitive sort and his earnings of $1.7million are second highest in the field.

The Play: Breakout – he needs a breakout race to set himself up for a Breeders' Cup Classic start and if he gets a decent pace up front this could be the race.

The Legend helps to explain how best to read the Pace Figures. It clearly defines what every line, symbol and figure means.

The Pattern Guide highlights Form Cycle Patterns, a series of 12 symbols/abbreviations, each with its own definition. These patterns are the easiest and most effective way to evaluate what we can expect from a horse's future performance and expected form cycle.

Value Play Picks use the automated technology and process to evaluate every track and race as well as the team's analytical expertise, we can now rank every horse by its likelihood of winning the race and value (initially relative to morning line odds).
Value Play picks are included as part of all subscriptions and you can view now on the Free Race of the Day.
