Breeders’ Cup 2020: Entries, picks, and start times for Saturday’s races
Trainer Bob Baffert has six horses entered in the event. Classier will race in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile on Friday, only a few days after a debut win at Santa Anita, while another of Baffert’s 2-year-olds, Princess Noor, will saddle up in the Juvenile Fillies. Gamine will be one of the favorites in the Filly, and Mare Sprint, and Authentic, Improbable and Maximum Security are set to go in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Gamine, it’s worth noting, tested positive for a trace of legal medication that was supposed to have been out of her system before she finished third in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks. Gamine also failed a drug test at Oaklawn Park in Arkansas, leading to her disqualification from an optional claiming victory in May.

She put up a solid speed figure in that race (102) despite a fast pace, showing she has enough to go against this tough field on Saturday. Plus, the presence of early front-runners sets up nicely for her pressing style.

Top 2020 Breeders’ Cup Classic predictions
One shocker: Kinchen is completely fading Maximum Security, even though he’s one of the top favorites at 7-2, behind only Improbable and Tiz the Law on the 2020 Breeders’ Cup odds board. Maximum Security has 10 wins and two seconds in 13 career starts. He is best known for crossing the finish line first in last year’s Kentucky Derby before being disqualified and placed 17th because of interference.
