Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint, $1 million, about 6 1/2 furlongs turf, 3-year-olds and up

1 Jeranimo M. Pender V. Espinoza Will love getting back on turf as he won a Grade 1 on it three starts back; has no downhill experience 6-1
2 Rock Me Baby C. Dollase J. Talamo Had a tough trip when seventh in the Eddie D., but that hardly means this will automatically be easier 20-1
3 Chips All In J. Mullins D. Moran Prevailed in a blanket finish in the local prep for this; merits respect on his fine downhill course record 6-1
4 Reneesgotzip P. Miller E. Maldanado Was a good third in this last year in her first and only start on turf; also been away, also runs big fresh 5-1
5 Caracortado M. Machowsky G. Stevens Beaten less than a length when fourth in the Eddie D. off a near 21-month layoff; can improve off that 12-1
6 Boat Trip M. Pender R. Bejarano Ran his best race yet when nosed by Chips All In in the Eddie D.; deep closer would need a good trip 10-1
7 Tightend Touchdown J. Servis J. Castellano Hasn't finished worse than second in seven starts since the claim, but might prefer a shorter distance 20-1
8 Handsome Mike D. O'Neill M. Gutierrez His four starts since his Poly win at Keeneland went from dull to dreadful; way too erratic to endorse 50-1
9 Capo Bastone T. Pletcher J. Rosario Idle since his shocking King's Bishop upset; has never raced on turf, but won on Polytrack in his debut 15-1
10 Havelock D. Miller J. Graham Rebounded from unsuccessful trip to England with a decisive Woodford score; added distance helps 15-1
11 Spring to the Sky B. Brown J. Velazquez A steady sort when properly spotted, but he would be way out of his element in this; no thanks 30-1
12 Mizdirection M. Puype M. Smith Away since June, but won this race last year off a longer layoff and is 5 for 5 on the downhill course 9-2
13 Dimension C. Murphy D. Moran Overcame a slow start to win a turf sprint stakes at Woodbine two back, but against lesser company 20-1
14 Unbridled's Note S. Asmussen C. Nakatani A narrowly beaten second in this last year as the tepid favorite; eligible to improve on recent return 6-1
