In one of the most competitive matchups in a 1 1/4-mile race for older horses outside the Breeders' Cup Classic, Horse of the Year California Chrome, multiple champion and last year's winner Beholder, and two-time Grade 1 winner Dortmund will contest the Pacific Classic on Saturday at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club.
Is one of these three a cinch? Who is the most likely winner? What longshot could upset the trio or at least the exotics? Ed DeRosa of TwinSpires.com and Danny Zucker of Predicteform.com hope to provide some answers, and they'll also touch on Songbird in the Alabama Stakes on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course.
