Den's Legacy is one of four expected starters for Bob Baffert in Saturday's CashCall Futurity.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. – The stakes winners Carving, Den’s Legacy, and Really Mr Greely, along with Title Contender, eighth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, will form trainer Bob Baffert’s team for Saturday’s $750,000 CashCall Futurity at Betfair Hollywood Park.

Baffert worked all four colts at Santa Anita on Sunday or Monday and said Tuesday that they are intended runners in the Grade 1 CashCall Futurity, the last major race of the year for 2-year-olds.

The quartet gives Baffert an excellent chance to beat He’s Had Enough, the runner-up in the BC Juvenile at Santa Anita on Nov. 3 and the expected favorite for the CashCall Futurity.

Two of Baffert’s runners have stakes experience on the Cushion Track main track at Hollywood Park.

Carving, who must be supplemented for $30,000, won the Real Quiet Stakes on Nov. 1, his second stakes win of the fall. Owned by Baffert’s wife, Jill, and Olympic skier Bode Miller, Carving also won the C.B. Afflerbaugh Stakes on dirt at Fairplex Park in September.

The Real Quiet Stakes was run over 1 1/16 miles, the same distance as the CashCall Futurity.

Really Mr Greely won the Grade 3 Hollywood Prevue Stakes over seven furlongs on Nov. 22 in his stakes debut.

Den’s Legacy won the Grade 3 Generous Stakes over a mile on turf Nov. 24 for his first stakes win.

Title Contender, making his stakes debut, was beaten 16 lengths by division leader Shanghai Bobby in the BC Juvenile.

Carving and Den’s Legacy worked five furlongs in 1:00.80 on Monday.

Title Contender and Really Mr Greely worked a half-mile in 47.80 seconds on Sunday.

Other probable starters for the CashCall Futurity are Dirty Swagg, Fury Kapcori, Little Jerry, Oxbow, and Violence, who won the Grade 2 Nashua Stakes at Aqueduct on Nov. 4.
