Post Horse Trainer/ Jockey Odds and comments by David Aragona
1 Buttercream Babe Mike Maker Luis Saez 30-1
Trainer: Mike Maker Jockey: Luis Saez
DA: Could never forge past winner in merry-go-round Surfer Girl; not sure that was the strongest prep for this
2 Flattery Peter Eurton Juan Hernandez 30-1
Trainer: Peter Eurton Jockey: Juan Hernandez
DA: Got up for third in the Surfer Girl, but just rode the rail while never really a factor; drew well, but must do better
3 Buchu Phil Bauer Martin Garcia 6-1
Trainer: Phil Bauer Jockey: Martin Garcia
DA: Went last to first in final quarter to win the Jessamine by open lengths; last two turf efforts have been dazzling
4 Laulne Phil D'Amato Manny Franco 12-1
Trainer: Phil D'Amato Jockey: Manny Franco
DA: Sold for $793k and transferred to Phil D'Amato following solid French campaign; Les Pavots beat her in August
5 Content Aiden O'Brien Ryan Moore 15-1
Trainer: Aiden O'Brien Jockey: Ryan Moore
DA: By Galileo out of 2x G1 Nunthorpe winner; stamina came through when stretched out to 1M in Irish G3
6 Porta Fortuna Donnacha O'Brien Oisin Murphy 6-1
Trainer: Donnacha O'Brien Jockey: Oisin Murphy
DA: Royal Ascot winner got back to winning ways in G1 Cheveley Park; obviously good enough, but has to get 1M
7 Gala Brand Bill Mott Jose Ortiz 12-1
Trainer: Bill Mott Jockey: Jose Ortiz
DA: Produced some electrifying stretch rallies at Saratoga; a little unlucky when given too much to do in Miss Grillo
8 Life's An Audible Todd Pletcher Irad Ortiz, Jr. 15-1
Trainer: Todd Pletcher Jockey: Irad Ortiz, Jr.
DA: Surged late in the Miss Grillo after decent trip; that was her first try going long on turf; may yet have upside
9 Carla's Way Simon Crisford James Doyle 5-1
Trainer: Simon Crisford Jockey: James Doyle
DA: Came to hand in stylish G2 Rockfel win over a pair who returned to finish 1-2 in G1 Fillies' Mile; legit Euro threat
10 Austere Brendan Walsh Tyler Gaffalione 15-1
Trainer: Brendan Walsh Jockey: Tyler Gaffalione
DA: Beat a decent field pretty convincingly at Kentucky Downs; she's light on experience, but has some talent
11 She Feel's Pretty Cherie DeVaux John Velazquez 9-2
Trainer: Cherie DeVaux Jockey: John Velazquez
DA: Dominated a strong field in convincing G1 Natalma score with the field's top Beyer; exciting filly still has upside
12 Hard to Justify Chad Brown Flavien Prat 8-1
Trainer: Chad Brown Jockey: Flavien Prat
DA: Well-connected filly had subtle trouble in Spa debut; showed improved speed in perfect-trip Miss Grillo score
13 Dreamfyre O.J. Jauregui Hector Berrios 20-1
Trainer: O.J. Jauregui Jockey: Hector Berrios
DA: Undefeated Cali-based filly has handled dirt and turf; just lasted in the Surfer Girl, but this is far tougher
14 Les Pavots Francis-Henri Graffard Mickael Barzalona 30-1
Trainer: Francis-Henri Graffard Jockey: Mickael Barzalona
DA: Rallied from last to first to win French G2 before placing in G1 Boussac at one mile; must overcome tough draw
SCR Go With Gusto Mark Casse 20-1
Trainer: Mark Casse
DA: DQ'd on debut, so still a maiden; rallied well for third against males in G1 Summer; faces fillies for the first time
SCR Mo Fox Givin Leonard Powell 50-1
Trainer: Leonard Powell
DA: Proved 49-1 debut upset was no fluke, just missing against winners at Churchill; this would be stakes debut

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.
