Classic »

Purse: $5,000,000, 1 1/4 miles

1 Last Gunfighter C. Brown J. Castellano Hard hitter fits much better in Grade 2 or 3 events than he does at this level; looks overmatched 20-1
2 Paynter B. Baffert M. Garcia It's remarkable he's with us, but he wasn't in the same league with Mucho Macho Man last time out 15-1
3 Planteur (IRE) M. Botti R. Moore Dirt isn't the only question for this Euro; it has also been 30 months since he won a Group 1 race 30-1
4 Moreno E. Guillot J. Talamo Raised his game with blinkers on, but he was carried by the track when he came close in the Travers 15-1
5 Declaration of War A. O'Brien J. O'Brien Won two Group 1 races this year in England for sharp barn; dirt ability is obviously the big question 15-1
6 Mucho Macho Man K. Ritvo G. Stevens Romped in the local prep, and was a sharp second in this race last year; he clearly loves Santa Anita 5-1
7 Fort Larned I. Wilkes B. Hernandez Jr. Won last year's Classic, albeit with the speed bias; last outing was good, and one he can improve on 6-1
8 Palace Malice T. Pletcher J. Velazquez Unlucky fourth in the Travers, but can't find an excuse for his soundly beaten second in the Gold Cup 10-1
9 Game On Dude B. Baffert M. Smith Been mostly dominant this season, but meets his toughest field since he flopped in this race last year 2-1
10 Will Take Charge D.W. Lukas L. Saez Improved dramatically over the summer while also taking blinkers off; faces elders for the first time 10-1
11 Ron the Greek B. Mott J. Lezcano Scratched due to injury SCR
12 Flat Out B. Mott J. Rosario His third in the J.C. Gold Cup was not his best performance; it could be a sign that he's tailing off form 12-1

Mile »

Purse: $2,000,000, 1 mile, turf

1 No Jet Lag S. Callaghan M. Smith Upset winner of the local prep at the distance over the course should get a favorable pace setup 10-1
2 Silentio G. Mandella R. Bejarano Close third in the Dmr Mile last out was probably his best so far, yet he still must improve significantly 20-1
3 Silver Max D. Romans R. Albarado Upset Wise Dan in the off-the-turf Shadwell; sharp, but might be compromised early by Obviously 6-1
4 Obviously (IRE) M. Mitchell J. Talamo Seems to have tailed off in his last two starts; expect him to send in an attempt to recapture top form 10-1
5 Olympic Glory (IRE) R. Hannon R. Hughes Just won the British Champions Mile; would be asked to ship and run back, all in only two weeks 7-2
6 Bright Thought J. Gutierrez J. Leparoux Was an absolute monster at SA early this year; very tough spot to return from a 7 1/2 month layoff 15-1
7 He Be Fire N Ice J. Sadler V. Espinoza Really raised his game in his last two starts; moving up again, but will get pace to set up his late run 12-1
8 Wise Dan C. LoPresti J. Velazquez Won this last year, but looked less than invicinble when second in the Shadwell on Polytrack he loves 7-5
9 Cristoforo Colombo A. O'Brien R. Moore Far from the best horse this barn has ever pre-entered in the Breeders' Cup; a definite outsider 20-1
10 Za Approval C. Clement J. Rosario Second to Wise Dan in the Woodbine Mile, though a soundly beaten one; steady vs. lesser company 15-1

Sprint »

Purse: $1,500,000, 6 furlongs

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

Turf »

Purse: $3,000,000, 1 1/2 miles, turf

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

Juvenile »

Purse: $2,000,000, 1 1/16 miles

1 Smarty's Echo A. Smith E.T. Baird Second in the Breeders' Futurity, which, it bears repeating, was slow; another unknown on dirt 30-1
2 Dance With Fate P. Eurton R. Bejarano Second best in the FrontRunner as the favorite; must do better to hit the board in this tougher spot 10-1
3 Mexikoma R. Mettee A. Garcia Even if he got a decent fig for his maiden romp at Delaware, he is still making a massive class jump 20-1
4 New Year's Day B. Baffert M. Garcia Unraced since beating Bond Holder late in Del Mar meet; dirt is a question, but he works well on it 12-1
5 Bond Holder D. O'Neill M. Gutierrez Got maiden win in the FrontRunner, the local prep at the distance over the track, but in slow time 6-1
6 Tap It Rich B. Baffert M. Smith Only just recently beat maidens in debut, but did it routing over the track, ran fast enough to fit here 4-1
7 Cleburne D. Romans C. Nakatani Upset an Iroquois that was even slower Beyer-wise than the Breeders' Futurity, but it was on dirt 20-1
8 Conquest Titan M. Casse E. Da Silva Had a less than ideal trip in the Breeders' Futurity, but still must do way better to contend here 30-1
9 Rum Point D. O'Neill E. Maldanado Was found wanting in the Del Mar and Breeders' Futurities, and dirt ability is unknown, too; next 30-1
10 We Miss Artie T. Pletcher J. Castellano A decisive, if surprising winner of Breeders' Futurity; that was on Poly, though, and a very slow race 12-1
11 Medal Count D. Romans R. Albarado Wasn't good enough in the turf-to-Poly Bourbon; hard to envision him being good enough in this 20-1
12 Diamond Bachelor P. Biancone J. Leparoux Was part of fast pace, but was odds-on in Zuma Beach and couldn't hold; this is on dirt, and tougher 15-1
13 Havana T. Pletcher J. Velazquez Yet to go 2 turns, but Champagne winner's two Beyers are higher than anything anyone else here has 5-2
14 Strong Mandate D.W. Lukas J. Rosario As impressive as he was winning the Hopeful was as dull as he was in the Champagne; tricky read 10-1

Turf Sprint »

Purse: $1,000,000, about 6 1/2 furlongs, turf

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

Filly & Mare Sprint »

Purse: $1,000,000, 7 furlongs

1 Renee's Titan D. O'Neill M. Gutierrez Hard to believe she beat Beholder in the Santa Ynez, especially how poor her four starts since were 50-1
2 Book Review B. Baffert R. Bejarano Does have an established ceiling, but she can certainly contend against this group on her best effort 6-1
3 Starship Truffles M. Wolfson G. Stevens Upset the Princess Rooney in July, but defeats in her two starts since don't exactly inspire confidence 20-1
4 Dance Card K. McLaughlin J. Rosario Raced against the grain of the track in her return from a long absence; showed big potential last year 12-1
5 Teddy's Promise R. Ellis V. Espinoza Won the local prep, again showing her affinity for SA; much more dangerous than she was last year 8-1
6 Ismene W. Spawr M. Smith Has many layoff lines, and it has been almost two years since she ran well on a dirt surface; shaky 30-1
7 Summer Applause J. Castellano C. Brown Another who is making an intriguing turnback in distance off a second in the Spinster on Polytrack 12-1
8 Dance to Bristol O. Figgins X. Perez Compromised by a rail bias last time; not as automatic as she appeared during her 7 race win streak 5-1
9 Judy the Beauty W. Ward J. Velazquez Stunned Groupie Doll in the TCA last time with her best performance to date; consistently runs well 6-1
10 Great Hot A. Avila C. Sutherland Improved when second in the L. A. Woman, but was badly outrun in this race last year; inconsistent 20-1
11 Groupie Doll W. Bradley R. Maragh The Groupie Doll of 2012 would be odds on and a mortal lock, but she doesn't seem the same horse 5-2
12 Sweet Lulu J. Hollendorfer J. Leparoux Like the turnback from a route to the distance at which she won the Test, but 3yo must improve a bit 8-1

Filly and Mare Turf »

Purse: $2,000,000, 1 1/4 miles, turf

1 Dank M. Stoute R. Moore Was not a star in Europe, yet came here and dominated in the Beverly D.; can she repeat that effort? 9-5
2 Romantica A. Fabre M. Guyon Won an iffy Group 1 two starts back, but otherwise, she sports steady Group 2 to Group 3 form 8-1
3 Tiz Flirtatious M. Jones J. Leparoux Got up to win the Rodeo Drive at this distance over this course, and is in the best form of her career 5-1
4 Alterite C. Brown J. Velazquez Both of her U.S. performances were solid; taking on better older opponents this time, however 15-1
5 Lady of Shamrock J. Sadler V. Espinoza After a very good campaign last year at 3, she never really took another step forward this season 20-1
6 Marketing Mix T. Proctor G. Stevens Willing to forgive her Beverly D. loss, but had no excuse when nipped last time in the Rodeo Drive 9-2
7 Laughing A. Goldberg J. Lezcano Won four stakes from as many starts this year and has also never been better, but has had great trips 6-1
8 Emollient B. Mott M. Smith Spinster win over moderate elders was her third Gr. 1 win this year, but she faces much tougher here 12-1
9 Qushchi H. G. Motion E. Prado Wasn't good enough when fourth in the Flower Bowl, and her Beyers suggest her form has plateaued 20-1
10 Kitten's Dumplings M. Maker J. Rosario Also tackling older horses for the first time, but she has a pretty strong late kick when she gets pace 15-1

Juvenile Fillies »

Purse: $2,000,000, 1 1/16 miles

1 Artemis Agrotera M. Hushion J. Lezcano Capitalized on Sweet Reason's trouble in the Frizette, but was good enough to do so; first route try 4-1
2 Rosalind K. McPeek J. Rosario Though second to My Conquestadory in the Alcibiades and third in the Pocahontas, she's a cut below 15-1
3 Designer Legs D. Stewart J. Talamo Soundly beaten in her last two after getting the Adirondack on a disqualification; Beyers are very low 30-1
4 Secret Compass B. Baffert J. Velazquez Was a surprise when she won the Chandelier over the track, but that was not a quickly run race 6-1
5 Ria Antonia J. Englehart J. Castellano Made no impact in the Frizette, yet that was a Beyer improvement off the barn and surface change 30-1
6 Concave D. O'Neill M. Gutierrez Won the Sorrento over She's a Tiger; her form is okay, but she will have to raise her game Beyer-wise 10-1
7 Untapable S. Asmussen R. Napravnik Liked how she successfully stretched out from 5.5 to 8.5 furlongs in Pocahontas off 2 1/2-month layoff 5-1
8 Scandalous Act K. O'Connell E. Nunez Queen of Calder swept the Florida Stallion Series; steps into an entirely different league here, though 10-1
9 Sweet Reason L. Gyarmati A. Solis Handled dry track when a much-the-best second in the Frizette; two turns the main question for her 5-2
10 She's a Tiger J. Bonde G. Stevens Tried to break the Chandelier open on the far turn, only to be narrowly beaten; yet to run a bad one 6-1

1 Street Girl M. Azupura A. Castillo Stumbled at start of Cotillion, finished third possibly better than looked, can hit board if others misfire 20-1
2 Authenticity T. Pletcher J. Velazquez Deceptively good runner-up finish first start over the track, knocking on door all season, looms upsetter 5-1
3 Close Hatches B. Mott J. Rosario Only filly to defeat Princess of Sylmar this year, solid comeback win Cotillion, faces older for first time 6-1
4 Royal Delta B. Mott M. Smith Queen of division seeks third Distaff/Ladies Classic, Mott recently tightened  screws, tough gal setting pace 9-5

6 Indian Jones P. Aristone A. Castillo Began career in California before becoming allowance-caliber veteran East Coast, he will stay the trip 9-2

8 Blueskiesnrainbows J. Hollendorfer M. Pedroza Fresno debacle odds-on was merely prep for this, won richest stakes at Los Angeles County Fair two back 10-1
9 Pool Play M. Casse E. da Silva Field's lone millionaire occasionally pops at a price, but four futile SA starts nothing to brag about 12-1
10 Worldly B. Walsh D. Flores Winless since July 2011, consistent recent form makes him tepid chalk in inscrutable dirt marathon 4-1

9 Wilshire Boulevard A. O'Brien W. Buick European import G3 winner unproven beyond 6f, unproven around turn, could be vulnerable this distance 6-1
10 Ontology S. Callaghan M. Gutierrez Though best recent race was turf, surface-switcher still maiden after five starts 30-1
