Baffert-Trained Trio Top 11 Pre-Entries For 2020 Breeders’ Cup Classic

This Wednesday the Breeders’ Cup released pre-entries for the 14 World Championship races scheduled for Nov. 6-7 at Keeneland Racecourse in Lexington, Ky. Those pre-entries were headlined by 11 contenders for the 2020 edition of the $6 million G1 Breeders’ Cup Classic, including five winners of Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series races.

Trainer Bob Baffert pre-entered his dominant trio of G1 Kentucky Derby winner Authentic, G1 Awesome Again winner Improbable, and G1 Pacific Classic winner Maximum Security. Other Challenge winners pre-entered in the Classic include Tom’s d’Etat (G1 Stephen Foster) and the 3-year-old filly Swiss Skydiver (G1 Preakness), though her first preference is listed as the Distaff against her own gender.

Belmont Stakes winner Tiz the Law, second in the Kentucky Derby last out, was also pre-entered in the Classic, and figures to draw a lot of support at the wagering windows.

The other five pre-entered in the Breeders’ Cup Classic include: By My Standards, Global Campaign, Higher Power, Tacitus, and Title Ready.
