Breeders' Cup Sprint, $1.5 million, 6 furlongs, 3-year-olds and up

1 Calculator Peter Miller Second against weaker in the Pat O'Brien; even his best back races suggest he's in a bit too deep here 20-1
2 Drefong Bob Baffert Defending champ and winner of the 2016 Sprint impressed winning the Forego; race goes through him 5-2
3 American Pastime Bob Hess Jr. Very sharp when a close second in the Gallant Bob; this is obviously much tougher, but he's not out of it 12-1
4 B Squared Doug O'Neill Just beat Cal.-breds on Santa Anita's downhill course, but is in over his head here in his move back to dirt 30-1
5 Whitmore Ron Moquett Has racked up four six-furlong stakes wins this year; seems up against it versus this kind, however 20-1
6 Mind Your Biscuits Chad Summers His empty sixth in the Forego was his worst effort in a year; can have a major say on his best performance 6-1
7 Takaful Kiaran McLaughlin For a good while, you never knew what you'd get from him; he's consistent now, Vosburgh win was solid 8-1
8 Roy H Peter Miller Had a legit excuse when second in only loss this year and all his other recent dirt starts were excelllent 7-2
9 Ransom the Moon Phil D'Amato Also comes off a dull try, behind Roy H; did win the eventful Bing Crosby at the distance, over the track 8-1
10 Imperial Hint Luis Carvajal Jr. Galloped in five straight with his last being his best yet; don't know just how good he is, but no one does 5-1
