Post Position Draw Quotes
Jennie Rees talked with the connections of Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) hopeful Not This Time about their plans going forward with the two-year-old.

In the first in a series of profiles looking at the main candidates in the upcoming Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1), Lord Nelson is poised to run a big one for owner Spendthrift Farm and trainer Bob Baffert.

Vance Hanson continued his analysis of the Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1) by profiling Joking and Masochistic.

Former Horse of the Year and dual classic winner California Chrome is looking to rewrite the history books in this year's Breeders' Cup Classic (G1). Kellie Reilly writes about the drought that has affected past winners of the Dubai World Cup (G1) and Pacific Classic (G1) in the country's richest race.

Vance Hanson gives a brief overview of the Breeders' Cup's main two-year-old races and notes the Juvenile (G1) is highly contentious while the Juvenile Fillies (G1) is a head scratcher.
