Trainer Chad Brown has won three of the last four editions of the $2,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf (gr. I), and he could very well win a fourth when he sends out Lady Eli and Sea Calisi in the November 5th race at Santa Anita.

Lady Eli, who won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (gr. I) in 2014, will enter the Filly & Mare Turf off a win in the Flower Bowl Stakes (gr. I) and could start as the favorite. Her stablemate Sea Calisi, third in the Flower Bowl, won the Beverly D. Stakes (gr. I) earlier this year and should have a strong chance in the Filly & Mare Turf.

The complete field for the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf is as follows:

1 Sea Calisi, Florent Geroux
2 Catch a Glimpse, Javier Castellano
3 Seventh Heaven, Ryan Moore
4 Avenge, Flavien Prat
5 Al’s Gal, Jose Ortiz
6 Zipessa, Joe Bravo
7 Sentiero Italia, Joel Rosario
8 Lady Eli, Irad Ortiz, Jr.
9 Ryans Charm, Rafael Bejarano
10 Kitcat, Ulloa Perez
11 Queen’s Trust, Frankie Dettori
12 Pretty Perfect, Seamie Heffernan
13 Nuovo Record, Yutaka Take
