The $2,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Sprint (gr. I) might not have drawn the largest group of pre-entries, but the nine horses that have joined the field at the first entry stage could not be a much more talented or competitive group.
Leading the way are the grade I winners A. P. Indian, Drefong, Lord Nelson, and Masochistic, all of which are unbeaten this year. Joking, riding a four-race win streak that includes the Vosburgh Stakes (gr. I), adds further depth to the field. The complete list of pre-entries is as follows:
A. P. Indian (Arnaud Delacour)
Delta Bluesman (Jorge Navarro)
Drefong (Bob Baffert)
Joking (Charlton Baker)
Limousine Liberal (Ben Colebrook)
Lord Nelson (Bob Baffert)
Masochistic (Ron Ellis)
Mind Your Biscuits (Robert Falcone, Jr.)
Noholdingback Bear (Michael P. De Paulo)
