Breeders' Cup Turf, $3 million, 1 1-2 miles, 3 year-olds and up.

1 Vagabond Shoes (IRE) J. Sadler V. Espinoza Second to Indy Point in last; he sports decent recent form, just not against the best entered here 20-1
2 Teaks North E. Guillot M. Garcia His best days were a couple of years ago and even back then, he wasn't truly Breeders' Cup-good. 30-1
3 Twilight Eclipse T. Albertrani J. Leparoux Second in a couple of Grade 1's this year, but there's a big difference between that and winning one 20-1
4 Little Mike D. Romans M. Smith His narrow Hirsch win was his best effort since he won this race last year; notably, he rated in both 9-2
5 Skyring D.W. Lukas L. Saez Did upset the Dixie last May, but dull performances before and since makes that look like a fluke 50-1
6 Tale of a Champion K. Mulhall J. Talamo The Whittingham field he beat was soft and his return in the John Henry was not good; overmatched 30-1
7 The Fugue (GB) J. Gosden W. Buick High class Euro filly has won two straight Group 1's, most recently over males; unlucky at SA last year 4-1
8 Point of Entry S. McGaughey J. Velazquez Was best when second in this last year; out since June due to injury; pretty tough spot for a comeback 6-1
9 Indy Point (ARG) R. Mandella G. Stevens Solid rebound win in the prep over the course and now faces better; might wind up a wiseguy pick 6-1
10 Big Blue Kitten C. Brown J. Bravo Might have won the Hirsch were it not for a bit of stretch traffic; has improved, but this is wide open 5-1
11 Magician (IRE) A. O'Brien R. Moore Did win the Irish 2000 Guineas, but his last start 4 1/2 months ago was poor; never been this distance 10-1
12 Real Solution C. Brown J. Castellano Made a big wide run in the Hirsch, but hung late; wonder if he might not prefer a shorter distance 6-1
