Eddie Olczyk Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile 2023 Picks: Zozos To Zap Rivals

Ex- NHL player Eddie Olczyk is now an admired horse racing NBC Sports handicapper and with the 40th running of the horse racing championship this week at Santa Anita – who better to turn to for a Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile pick.

Eddie Olczyk Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile Picks: 1-2-3-4 Best Bets

Last year’s Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile winner Cody’s Wish is one of the bankers at the meeting again – however, Eddie Olczyk is looking elsewhere for the winner.

Step forward – ZOZOS, from the Brad Cox barn that won this prize in 2020 with the classy Knicks Go.

This 4 year-old is the winner of seven of his 11 career starts and the most recent of those was a success in the G3 Ack Ack Stakes at Churchill Downs at the end of September (watch below). This season he’s also landed three other races, including the Hanshin S. Presented by JRA Listed race at Ellis Park in July.

The Munnings colt likes to race up with the speed and if regular jockey Florent Geroux can get the fractions right out top again, then he could just be hard to pass.

In a race that seems to lack depth, it’s still hard to ignore last year’s winner Cody’s Wish, who Olczyk expects to be in the shake-up. While at a bigger price the Cherie DeVaux entry Stage Raider could outrun its odds according to the NBC handicapper.

Recent Charles Town Classic Stakes winner Skippylongstocking is the other to use underneath.
