VIDEO: Previewing the WV Breeders’ Classics Cavada
The Racing Biz West Virginia correspondent Ted Black stops by to help us preview Saturday’s West Virginia Breeders’ Classic Cavada!
The top distaff race on the card, the 7-furlong, $125,000 Cavada has drawn a field of seven, and with defending champ Star of Night retired, it looks to be a wide-open affair.
The field is topped by three-year-old The Sky Is Falling, who bested her elders last time out in the Sadie Hawkins. But the first four finishers in that race were within 1 1/4 lengths of each other, and three of them — including show horse Azzurra and fourth-place finisher Moonlit Shadow — are slated to contest the Cavada.
Who’s gonna win? What are the key story lines? We’ve got the answers.
