Post Horse Trainer/ Jockey Odds and comments by David Aragona
1 Candied Todd Pletcher Luis Saez 4-1
Trainer: Todd Pletcher Jockey: Luis Saez
DA: Won Alcibiades despite hanging on left lead through the lane; progressive sort looms biggest threat to the fave
2 Jody's Pride Jorge Abreu Flavien Prat 30-1
Trainer: Jorge Abreu Jockey: Flavien Prat
DA: She's 2 for 2 on dirt, but has been entered for turf in both starts; stepping up to face much tougher rivals here
3 Scalable Todd Pletcher Jose Ortiz 20-1
Trainer: Todd Pletcher Jockey: Jose Ortiz
DA: Still a maiden, but she did show progression in the Chandelier, closing for second in a race dominated up front
4 Where's My Ring Val Brinkerhoff Victor Espinoza 50-1
Trainer: Val Brinkerhoff Jockey: Victor Espinoza
DA: Ran decently in both losses on dirt before handling added distance on turf; yet this is a big step up in class
5 Omaha Girl Jorge Delgado Umberto Rispoli 50-1
Trainer: Jorge Delgado Jockey: Umberto Rispoli
DA: Earned a stakes victory when stretched out at Gulfstream, but that was a very slow race; would be a surprise
6 Chatalas Mark Glatt Antonio Fresu 15-1
Trainer: Mark Glatt Jockey: Antonio Fresu
DA: Controlled Chandelier up front in gate-to-wire score, but was previously no match for Tamara in the Debutante
7 Tamara Richard Mandella Mike Smith 3-5
Trainer: Richard Mandella Jockey: Mike Smith
DA: Unbeaten, untested, and faster than her peers; must negotiate two turns, but certainly has the pedigree for it
8 Espirit Enchante Peter Miller Juan Hernandez 30-1
Trainer: Peter Miller Jockey: Juan Hernandez
DA: Scored narrow victory from off the pace in second start, and is supposed to stretch out as daughter of Tapit
9 Brightwork John Ortiz Ricardo Santana, Jr. 20-1
Trainer: John Ortiz Jockey: Ricardo Santana, Jr.
DA: Failed the distance test when fading badly late in the Alcibiades; early-season star may simply be a sprinter
10 Accomodate Eva Dallas Stewart John Velazquez 50-1
Trainer: Dallas Stewart Jockey: John Velazquez
DA: Won her maiden at the auction-restricted level last time; has never faced stakes company or raced beyond 7F
11 Life Talk Todd Pletcher Irad Ortiz, Jr. 20-1
Trainer: Todd Pletcher Jockey: Irad Ortiz, Jr.
DA: Was mildly disappointing in the Frizette, failing to finish as strongly in the slop; another who needs to get faster
12 Just F Y I Bill Mott Junior Alvarado 8-1
Trainer: Bill Mott Jockey: Junior Alvarado
DA: Stayed perfect with easy Frizette victory in the slop; yet she hasn't run a fast fig, and post does her no favors
SCR Aly's Beach Tom Amoss Tyler Gaffalione 30-1
Trainer: Tom Amoss Jockey: Tyler Gaffalione
DA: Gritty debut winner has steadily improved, but could only manage a distant third with a good trip in Alcibiades

The horses that compete in these championship races can claim their berths in multiple ways. The first is by winning a Breeders' Cup Challenge race. The second is through a system that allows horses to earn points based on their performance in major races throughout the year. The third way to be selected is to be chosen by a panel of experts. There are a maximum of 14 horses in each Breeders' Cup race, except the Dirt Mile and Juvenile Turf Sprint, which are limited to 12 starters.
