Breeders’ Cup Presents The News Minute: A Busy Day For Classic Contenders

Nine of the 11 horses pre-entered for next Saturday’s $6-million Breeders’ Cup Classic turned in their final timed workouts on Saturday morning at Churchill Downs and Keeneland in Kentucky and Santa Anita Park in California. Belmont and Travers winner Tiz the Law worked at Keeneland for trainer Barclay Tagg, Kentucky Derby winner Authentic breezed at Santa Anita for Bob Baffert and Preakness winner Swiss Skydiver did her final preparations at Churchill Downs.

Trainer Kenny McPeek said later Swiss Skydiver would most likely be entered against fillies and mares in the Distaff rather than take on males in the Classic. One of her chief opponents in that race, Monomoy Girl, also worked over the Churchill Downs main track on Saturday morning.

The Europeans are starting to arrive and will be out of quarantine as early as Monday, with Aidan O’Brien’s contingent arriving later Monday from Ireland.
