Breeders' Cup Sprint, $1.5 million, six furlongs, 3-year-olds and up

1 Justin Phillip S. Asmussen J. Velazquez Narrowly beaten by Private Zone in the Vosburgh and might be better than ever this year at age 5 7-2
2 The Lumber Guy M. Hushion M. Luzzi Decent second in this race last year, but has not run back to it; two efforts off the layoff weren't good 20-1
3 Gentlemen's Bet R. Moquett J. Castellano Forgive his last two, one on Poly, and the other an early duel he didn't have to be in; a matter of class 8-1
4 Majestic Stride J. Bonde E. Maldonado Won decisively in an allowance earlier in the SA meet but is moving way up here; looks overmatched 20-1
5 Sum of the Parts T. Amoss L. Goncalves Won the Phoenix in his last, but on Poly over much weaker; fourth in this last year with the speed bias 20-1
6 Bahamian Squall D. Fawkes L. Saez He did upset the Smile Sprint three starts back, but his last two outings were not nearly as inspiring 12-1
7 Private Zone D. O'Neill M. Pedroza Extremely sharp now; likes to wait on competition, then beat them; can't fool around in this event 3-1
8 Fast Bullet D.W. Lukas J. Rosario Forget his last, it was absolutely the wrong spot for him; highly talented, but wish Baffert still had him 10-1
9 Secret Circle B. Baffert M. Garcia Winner of the defunct Juvy Sprint in 2011 recently scored nicely off a very long absence; intriguing 4-1
10 Wine Police H. Dominguez E. Gomez A very useful horse when suitably spotted; lacks even one race that says he can compete with these 20-1
11 Trinniberg S. Parboo R. Maragh Won this last year with the big help of the speed bias; dismal since, save for his second in the Smile 15-1
12 Laugh Track M. Casse M. Smith Chose this instead of the Dirt Mile, but he must do much better than he did in his one start on dirt 20-1
