Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf runner-up Tiz the Bomb will try to translate his success to the dirt when he leaves the starting gate in the 2021 Kentucky Cup Juvenile Stakes on Saturday at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. Trained by Ken McPeek, Tiz the Bomb has been installed as the lukewarm 3-1 favorite in the 2021 Kentucky Cup Juvenile odds. Classic Causeway and Howling Time are the co-second choices in the 14-horse Kentucky Cup Juvenile field. Post time is 5:56 p.m. ET.
Before you make any Kentucky Cup Juvenile 2021 picks or bets, you NEED to see the latest picks from racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker Bob Weir.
A Saratoga Springs-based racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker, Weir has studied the race and constructed his wagers in his analysis below. A two-time qualifier for the prestigious National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas, Weir has produced multiple five-figure days at the track over the years, including a $60,000 Pick 6 at Del Mar in 2014. This year, he has been on fire. He hit the exacta in the Sam F. Davis Stakes, Tampa Bay Derby and Peter Pan Stakes, the trifecta in the Risen Star Stakes, Blue Grass Stakes and Pennsylvania Derby and the superfecta in the Belmont Stakes, with the Tampa Bay score returning $1,414. Those are just some of his scores in 2021.
Now, Weir has handicapped the Kentucky Cup Juvenile 2021 field, made his picks and constructed his bets.
One surprise: Weir is completely tossing Tiz the Bomb, even though he is the 3-1 morning-line favorite. "Even if he doesn't go off as the favorite, this is a tough spot to accept low odds on a horse trying a new surface after presumably being primed for his best effort earlier this month," Weir told SportsLine. Weir prefers four horses over Tiz the Bomb and is not including Tiz the Bomb in his wagers.
Weir's top pick is a horse who has "continued to work well in the mornings." He also is high on a double-digit long shot who "could be getting better at the right time." Weir is including these horses in his 2021 Kentucky Cup Juvenile bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before locking in any of your own!
