The $1,500,000 Breeders’ Cup Sprint – 6f – 4:01 PDT

Drefong – Baffert brings this son of Gio Ponti to post, and this runner is looking for five-in-a-row. He was ultra impressive in the King’s Bishop and working very nicely in the mornings.

Joking – Gelded son of Distorted Humor and he is looking for his fifth straight. 2nd off the layoff and owns a solid effort in the (G-1) Vosburgh.

Lord Nelson – Baffert trainee is a very nice son of Pulpit. He’s seeking his 5th straight and is 6/8 ITM at Santa Anita.

A.P. Indian – Arnaud Delacour brings this son of Indian Charlie to post. He is seeking his 6th straight victory. He is one tough customer and all you have to do is examine his last effort at Keeneland.


The $4,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Turf – 1 1/2 on the turf – 4:40 PDT

Da Big Hoss – Mike Maker brings a son of Lemon Drop Kid to post and he is 14/17 ITM on the greensward. He should relish the distance and is looking for his fifth straight win.

Flintshire – Chad Brown has become quite a trainer in his own right. Doing his apprenticeship under the tutelage of the late Bobby Frankel is enough to make any trainer ready for the game. – This runner is a turf machine and his last race did not take anything away. He’ll be ready and the field better bring their running shoes.

Found – Aiden O’Brien brings the Arc winner to the post. This filly is by Galileo and she is a monster. She cut back to 1 1/4 last out and goes back to 1 1/2 where she is 3/3 ITM at the distance.
