*= Denotes Breeders Cup Challenge winner 
The Fugue (GB) has first preference in the Turf 
The Contenders 
Dank (GB): very nice win in the Beverly D Stakes at Arlington last out is definitely one to look out for in here, unfortunately I expect she will be at a short price. The Beverly D was also her first start on US soil and showed she definitely likes firm going and she will get firm going at Santa Anita which will definitely enhance her chances. 
Laughing(IRE): four starts and four wins this year for Laughing, she has racked up a very impressive roster of wins. She took down the grade three Eatontown Handicap at Monmouth in June then took down the grade one Diana Stakes at Saratoga before winning the grade two Bal…

My Conquestadory has first preference in the Juvenile Fillies Turf  Ria Antonia has second preference in the Juvenile Fillies Turf  Rosalind has second preference in the Juvenile Fillies Turf   Dancing House has first preference in the Juvenile Fillies Turf 
This years Juvenile filly division is a bit of a mess and anyone of these capable fillies could easily lock up Champion Two-Year-Old Filly honors with a win in here that is if My Conquestadory loses the Juvenile Fillies Turf, or her owners could decide to run her here and if she loses here Champion Two-Year-Old Filly honors would be up for grabs.

Street Girl has second preference in the Filly and Mare Sprint 
This years Breeders Cup Distaff though small is very mighty and deep in talent, you have two time Distaff champion Royal Delta back for a attempting for a record third Distaff victory. You have arguably one of the best three old fillies we have seen in years in Princess Of Slymar, who has racked up an impressive string of victories this year including the Kentucky Oaks, Alabama, and the Beldame in the latter she bested Royal Delta. Close Hatches is no slouch either with her own grade one victories and also makes a very strong one two punch case for Bill Mott. Then you have the California flash Beholder who if allowed to lead can run you into the ground. Authenticity is the second best older mare in the country and could very well spoil the party here if…

This years Juvenile Fillies Turf is very intriguing with My Conquestadory facing possibly the toughest field she has yet to face, with a host of some very capable Europeans ready to challenge her undefeated record. There are also many capable Americans ready to spoil her party, but if she comes out the winner she could very well clinch champion two year old filly awar…
