Trainer Bob Baffert won the 2011 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Sprint with Secret Circle and he hopes lightning strikes twice with Super Ninety Nine.
Super Ninety Nine won his seven panel debut at Santa Anita Park on October 7 and he is training well for Friday's six furlong test.
Merit Man has won both career starts for Bob Hess Jr. and he rolled past today's rival South Floyd in the Tim Conway Stakes at the Great Race Place on October 6. He is the 8-5 morning line favorite.
Hightail, Ceiling Kitty, Hazardous, and Sweet Shirley Mae round out the field.
