Breeders' Cup Filly Mare Sprint, $1 million, 7 furlongs, fillies and mares 3yo and up

- Judy the Beauty Wesley Ward Was a close second to the mighty Groupie Doll in this race last year, and her form this year is solid 3-1
- Midnight Lucky Bob Baffert Comes into this off a six month layoff; then again, she won the Humana Distaff off 11 month layoff 7-2
- Artemis Agrotera Mike Hushion Brilliant winning the Ballerina, but dropped alarmingly far back early before winning Gallant Bloom 5-1
- Sweet Reason Leah Gyarmati Made top 3yo filly Untapable run at Parx, and now suitably cuts back to sprint; Beyers are a little light 6-1
- Leigh Court Josie Carroll Granted, she was beating softer, but her win in the TCA was a strong performance; live price horse 8-1
- Stonetastic Kelly Breen Might have regressed off big Prioress score when third in the TCA; must bounce back big time here 10-1
- Better Lucky Tom Albertrani Think she's much better on turf or synthetic surfaces, and would need a complete pace collapse 15-1
- Little Alexis Carlo Vaccarezza Was beaten only a length by Sweet Reason in the Test Stakes and has lots of room for improvement 15-1
- Living The Life Gary Mandella She is 2 for 2 since coming to the U. S., but is an unknown on dirt, and needs to improve, anyway 15-1
- Southern Honey Rusty Arnold Soundly beaten when second in the TCA and would have to run many lengths better than she ever has 20-1
- Thank You Marylou Mike Maker Failed to run back to her lengthy Dogwood score with blinkers two back in her most recent outing 20-1
