The 2014 renewal of the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Classic drew an overflow field of 15. Only fourteen can face the starter, so “also eligible” Big Cazanova can only get in if someone else scratches from the race. With most of the nation’s top older males out, the race looks to be dominated by the 3-year olds, two of which already own victories over their elders. So who looks like a winner and which competitors can be tossed? With just two days to go to the big event, I have broken down the field to show my top selection, contenders, questionables and tosses.
