In the first race of the day, $1 million will go to the winner of the Filly & Mare Sprint for three-year-olds and up covering seven furlongs. John Velazquez will be aboard Gamine, the 2020 winner of this race in record time, who opens as the morning line favorite (3-to-5 odds) as a winner of nine of her 10 career starts. Bella Sofia (5-to-2 odds) will break from the neighboring gate with Luis Saez onboard having won four of her five career starts.

Glass Slippers returns (6-to-1 odds) to defend its 2020 title as one of 12 horses that will take the gate in the five-furlong Turf Sprint. Should Glass Slippers pull off the repeat, it would mark the third time a horse has won this event back-to-back as Stormy Liberal pulled off the feat in 2017-18 and Mizdirection in 2012-13.

Todd Pletcher, who was recently inducted into the Horse Racing Hall of Fame, is poised to have his 12th Breeders' Cup winner when he saddles Life is Good (4-to-5 odds) in the Breeders Cup Dirt Mile.

In the 1 3/8 mile Filly & Mare Turf defending champion Audarya (5-to-1 odds) is the fourth betting choice behind War Like Goddess (7-to-2 odds), the Aidan O’Brien trained Irish entry Love (4-to-1 odds) and Japanese import Loves Only You (4-to-1 odds). Trainer Chad Brown has won this race four times and will have two horses enter this race with French entry My Sister Nat (15-to-1 odds) and Pocket Square who ships in from Great Britain.
