    Best answer: Since your excellent question is in the horse racing category, I'll answer as such. Aluminum Horse Shoes are made of lightweight aluminum ideal for race horses so they can run faster so the short answer is YWS! However, there are many different types of racing plates making this a very complicated answer, as followed:

    Front Regular Toe Aluminum Racing Plates. The REGULAR TOE is the most popular style plate in use. An excellent all around performer for multiple track surfaces.

    Front Low Toe Aluminum Racing Plates. The LOW TOE shoe is used on hard or fast tracks. It provides traction with less strain on tendons and ligaments.

    Level Grip or Outer Rim Aluminum Racing Plates. The LEVEL GRIP (Outer Rim) is a great performer, excellent for TURF and DIRT courses. This style features a high outside rim for equal traction and balance. The grip provides 180 degrees of excellent cupping action. This shoe can be used on both front and hind feet.

    Front Inner Rim Aluminum Racing Plates. The INNER RIM is popular for deep sandy tracks. The inside rim allows for good traction and stability.

    Wedge Aluminum Racing Plates. The WEDGE raises and protects the heel with a solid tapered design. It allows the hoof to roll over faster and reduces tendon and muscle strain. Also useful for horses with low heels caused by concussion, poorly constructed pads, or slow growth. The WEDGE gives immediate and solid support to the heel without causing further deterioration, giving the heel a chance to grow.

    Front Jar Calk Aluminum Racing Plates. The JAR CALK shoe is for use on extremely wet, muddy or sloppy race tracks. JAR or MUD CALKS can add stability and traction for the race horse. These shoes should be removed when track conditions improve.

    Queens Plate Aluminum Racing Plates. The QUEENS PLATE is for tracks that do not allow inserts, calks or toe grabs that protrude above the plate. This reduces tendon strain and muscle pulls.
    Queens Plate XT Aluminum Racing Plates. The QUEENS PLATE XT has a raised toe, only .080 of an inch above the aluminum surface. Not enough to create a positive toe grab, but just enough to increase the traction and wear.

    Toe Grabs. Toe grabs are front shoes that have raised anterior portions to provide traction. There are many studies shown over 3x the rate of breakdown using these shoes.

    Bar Shoes. A bar shoe is a regular racing plate with a full bar forged between the back extensions of the shoe creating on continuous surface. This shoe protects cracks in hoofs and other foot related injuries. Horses with bar shoes rarely run as well as horses with shod otherwise.

    Paying attention to announcements regarding shoes before the races is extremely important, for this can be the difference between winning and losing.

    Best answer: World Thoroughbred Championships

    Though we are all too familiar with the fact that anything can happen in horse racing. My race for the SLAM DUNK WINNER will be in the Breeders' Cup Classic! With Horse "West Coast" yes it's hard to go against Arrogate with Mike Smith, but I've been extremely impressed with West Coast this year. I've included two race videos below.

    West Coast -

    Trainer: Bob Baffert
    Jockey: Javier Castellano- Javier Castellano has picked up the mount on West Coast for the 10-furlong contest. He replaces Mike Smith, who rode the colt to victory in both the G1 Travers and G1 Pennsylvania Derby. Smith is sticking with defending Breeders' Cup champion Arrogate.
    Owner: Gary and Mary West

    Foaling Date: 5-14-2014
    Pedigree: Flatter - Caressing by A.P. Indy
    Dosage Profile: 10-5-11-0-0
    Dosage Index / CD: 3.73 0.96
    2017 Record: 8 Starts: 6 - 2 - 0, $1,543,800 (as of 9/27/2017)
    2017 Best Beyer Figure: 108
    Notes: West Coast got a late start, breaking his maiden in March of 2017 at Santa Anita in his second start. He shipped to Keeneland to finish 2nd in the Lexington (G3) then back to Santa Anita to win an allowance and back to Belmont Park to win the Easy Goer on Belmont Stakes day. It was back to California at Los Alamitos to win the Los Alamitos Derby (G3) then to Saratoga to win the Travers (G1). His final prep was a win in the Pennsylvania Derby (G1) at Parx Racing. He should be very comfortable on planes with all that shuttling back and forth across the country! West Coast impressed by rolling to a 7 ¼-length in $1 million Pennsylvania Derby (G1) at Parx. The 3-year-old male divisional leader is clearly getting stronger and stamped himself as a serious contender for the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) at Del Mar.

    This year, the Breeders' Cup will again have a total of 13 races spread over two days of racing with $24.5 million in purse money on the line. Friday November 3rd will have four races headlined by the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Distaff, run for several years as the Ladies Classic, worth $2 million. Saturday November 4th will have nine races headlined by the $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) at 1 1/4 miles. For the first time, the Championships will be held at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in Del Mar, California, in San Diego County north of the city. Due to the limited space at the facility compared to last year's host Santa Anita, all tickets including general admission must be purchased in advance, and at time of writing, reserved seating for both days is sold out as is stretch run general admission for Saturday. If you still want to attend and don't wish to pay a premium on the resale market, you are limited to stretch run admission on Friday, or infield general admission for both days.

    Pre-entries will close at noon on Monday, October 23, for all the races and will be announced on October 25. Those horses will be the only ones who can enter at that point. Final entries will be taken and post positions drawn on Monday October 30.

    The Breeders' Cup will be televised on NBC and NBC Sports with the schedule shown below:
    Friday, November 3, 5:00-8:00pm on NBC Sports
    Saturday, November 4, 1:30-8:00 on NBC Sports
    Saturday, November 4, 8:00-9:00pm ET (Classic only) on NBC

    (: Great Choice from Blue Jay as well :)
