FIELDS SET FOR BREEDERS’ CUP RACES

The post position draw for the 30th Breeders’ Cup was held yesterday and a field of 12 will go to post in the feature race, the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic G.1.

The first four finishers from last year’s race—Fort Larned, Mucho Macho Man, Flat Out, and Ron the Greek—returning, as well as last year’s favorite Game On Dude.  Unique to this year’s race are the ages of the major contenders—Game On Dude is 6, Ron the Greek is 6, and Flat Out is 7. No 6-year-old or older has ever won the Classic.

Game On Dude, installed as the 8-5 favorite, drew well in post 9, while the Bill Mott pair of Ron the Greek and Flat Out will break side by side on the outside in posts 11 and 12, respectively.

Virginia-bred Bluesiesnainbows (Edward P. Evans) drew the number 8 post in a field of ten in the 1 ¾ mile $500,000 Marathon Gr.2 on Friday while Virginia-bred Bond Holder (Lazy Lane Farm, Inc.) drew the number 5 post in a full field of 14 in the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Gr.1 on Saturday’s main card.
