Breeders’ Cup Mile: Karakontie could be fair price in title defense

Email

Sixteen horses, split half and half between North Americans and Europeans and including 2014 Mile winner Karakontie, were pre-entered in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile. That’s two more than are eligible to run in a race capped at 14 starters, but Bawina, in the main body of the field, has first preference in the Filly and Mare Turf, and if she goes there, it would allow War Envoy into the Mile. The second also-eligible horse, Recepta, also has first preference in the Filly and Mare Turf.
