Favored Accelerate Draws Widest Of All In Breeders’ Cup Classic

Accelerate takes a tour of the Churchill Downs oval on Monday

The West Coast-based Accelerate was granted morning-line favoritism of 5-2 for the 35th running of the Breeders' Cup Classic, despite drawing the far outside post in the full 14-horse field. John Sadler will be trying to saddle his first Breeders' Cup winner with Joel Rosario in the saddle.

“Fourteen's actually a good post because you're out in the clear and can make your own trip,” said Sadler.

As expected, Mind Your Biscuits (11) will also start in the Classic as the co-third choice, with Tyler Gaffalione named to ride. A pair of Bob Baffert trainees complete the top four wagering choices: McKinzie from post 6 and West Coast from post 7. Mike Smith will ride recent Pennsylvania Derby winner McKinzie, and John Velazquez will ride West Coast as Baffert seeks his fourth Classic victory.

Champion Enable, favored at even money on the morning line, will be bidding to become the first horse to win the Arc de Triomphe and the Breeders' Cup Turf in the same year.

Additionally, Chad Brown's five entrants in the Filly & Mare Turf is the first time a trainer has had five in a single Breeders' Cup race since 1988.
