2013 Breeders’ Cup Pre-Entries: Game On Dude Early Classic Favorite

172 horses were pre-entered in the 2013 Breeders' Cup including nine former champions (Photo credit: Breeders' Cup Ltd.)

Pre-entries for the 2013 Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita Park were announced on Wednesday, with 172 horses entered over the 14 races that will be run over the two-day championship event on November 1-2.

There were 20 horses that were entered in more than one race, bringing the pre-entry total to 192. Final entries and morning line odds will be announced on Monday.

Leading the way are nine winners from last year’s Breeders’ Cup including 2012 Horse of the Year Wise Dan, who will be back to defend his title in the Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1). The gelding is the 9-5 early betting favorite in odds released by breederscupodds.net.

The Charles LoPresti trainee had a nine-race win streak snapped in his final prep in the Shadwell Turf Mile (G1) at Keeneland. The race was washed off the turf and contested over polytrack.

Royal Delta is the early favorite for the Breeders’ Cup Distaff (G1). The Bill Mott trainee will be seeking her third straight win in the race, which was formerly called in the Ladies’ Classic.

She was upset by Princess of Sylmar in her final prep in the Beldame Invitational (G1) at Belmont Park. Royal Delta is the 9-5 early favorite according to breederscupodds.net.

Princess Sylmar will vie for favoritism with Royal Delta and is looking for her fifth Grade 1 race of the year. She won the Kentucky Oaks, Coaching Club of America Oaks, Alabama and Beldame.

A victory in the Distaff along with losses by Wise Dan in the Mile and Game On Dude in the Classic would make her the front-runner for Horse of the Year.

Game On Dude leads a field of 13 for the $5 million Classic (G1). The Bob Baffert trainee will be making his third attempt in the race. The gelding was second in 2011 and last year was seventh as the beaten favorite.

The gelding is perfect in five starts in 2013, winning the Pacific Classic (G1) over polytrack at Del Mar in his last outing. A victory would likely lead to Horse of the Year honors.

The other defending champions looking for a repeat are Groupie Doll (Filly & Mare Sprint), Little Mike (Turf), Mizdirection (Turf Sprint), and Trinniberg (Sprint).

In addition, Beholder, last year’s winner of the Juvenile Fillies will take on older in the Distaff, and Flotilla, who won the Juvenile Fillies Turf last year, returns this year in the Mile to take on the boys.
