The History

You’re looking at it as this is the inaugural running of this event as an official Breeders’ Cup race.

We ditch the traditional format for alphabetical order due to the mix of U.S. and Euro runners as well as age and lack of experience.

Bulletin rolled to a seven-length tally in his debut at Gulfstream going five furlongs five weeks ago.

Chelsea Cloisters won her debut on dirt at Keeneland but is winless in four turf starts, all in stakes, including two overseas at Royal Ascot and in Deauville. She’s finished second in her last three tries.

Moonlight Romance broke her maiden second out at Belmont in her turf debut then finished off the board in Royal Ascot before beating the boys by three lengths in the Juvenile Turf Sprint at Kentucky Downs.

Pocket Dynamo lost the G2 Norfolk at Royal Ascot by a nose having won his two prior starts. Overall, he’s won two of his six starts and was fifth most recently in the Cornwallis in England behind a couple others in here.

Queen of Bermuda ships over the pond with a remarkable 10 starts already under her belt, with four wins (two against the boys) and three seconds, including a G2 in France, most recently.

Sergei Prokofiev has won three of his seven starts, including the Cornwallis most recently as the 3-1 favorite, for Coolmore.

Shang Shang Shang broke her maiden at Keeneland then beat the boys in the Norfolk. This will be her first start in over four months.

Soldier’s Call has four wins, including two graded stakes, and has hit the board in all seven starts overseas. He was beaten just a head when third in a G1 at Longchamp on Arc weekend last out.

So Perfect was beaten less than a length in the G1 Phoenix at the Curragh and a G1 in England last out after winning two of her first four starts.

Stillwater Cove tries the boys for the first time in her fifth start having won the Bolton Landing at Saratoga two back before making the lead and tiring to fifth in the stretch of the G1 Natalma at Woodbine going a mile.

Strike Silver broke his maiden and finished second by a neck in the G3 Sanford, both on dirt, before storming home from dead last to take the Indian Summer.

Well Done Fox has finished in the exacta in six of his nine starts, including three wins, none in graded stakes. He was second to Soldier’s Call and Sergei Prokofiev in his last two starts.

If I’m Right…

There is a very good chance this will be run over boggy ground which should help the Euros and closers.

Live Longshot

Well Done Fox has won over good-soft ground in Europe.
