Turf Sprint Features Defending Champ Chamberlain Bridge

Saturday's wide open Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint includes a full field of fourteen headed by defending champion Chamberlain Bridge.

Chamberlain Bridge will break from post 14 for trainer Bret Calhoun and the 7-year-old gelding is 4-for-6 over the Churchill Downs weeds. He has dropped four straight but showed some signs of life when last seen at Parx Sept 5.


Regally Ready is the 3-1 morning line favorite and figures in the hunt throughout. The Steve Asmussen runner has won five turf sprints this year including the G1 Nearctic at Woodbine on October 16. He captured both turf sprint starts at Churchill.

California Flag bring speed to the table and got back on the beam in G3 Morvich at Santa Anita last time. He disappointed in last year's Turf Sprint and does not seem to be the same horse away from Southern California.

Another California invader with a big chance is
Caracortado. The hard trying gelding has been knocking heads with graded turf route runners all year and just got up in G2 Del Mar Mile in August. He won his lone turf sprint try last November and should be finishing fast under Joe Talamo.  

The Turf Sprint field also includes Grand Adventure, Holiday For Kitten, Broken Dreams, Perfect Officer, Great Attack, Hoofit, Rapport, Havelock, Country Day, and Camp Victory.
