Breeders' Cup Juvenile 2015 | Remaining Contenders
Nyquist 9-2 - Doug O'Neill trained colt has been terrific in his four race career - he has won all. Last time out was in the Grade 1 FrontRunner Stakes at Santa Anita September 26 after the Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity September 7 and wins in the Grade 2 Best Pal Stakes also at Del Mar August 8 and a MSW in June - his first two stakes scored came by a combined nine lengths. He hasn't been touched so far in his career and is definitely one to keep tabs on heading into the weekend. Mario Gutierrez has the mount from an unfortunate post 13.
Exaggerator 6-1 - Keith Desormeaux trained colt has been very competitive in his four race career - two wins and a second place finish. A fifth in his debut was followed by two straight wins - a maiden score at Del Mar in July and the Grade 2 Saratoga Special in August. Last time out was a respectable second behind Brody's Cause in the Grade 1 Claiborne Breeders' Futurity on this track October 3. Exaggerator has looked very good in his last three starts and hopes for his first Grade 1 score this weekend. Kent Desormeaux has been tabbed to ride from gate 10.
Ralis 12-1 - has six career starts already for trainer Doug O'Neill with two wins and a second place finish. Last time out was a sixth in the Grade 1 Champagne Stakes October 3 at Belmont Park after a good win in the Grade 1 Hopeful Stakes September 7, a second in the minor Graduation at Del Mar August 5 and a fifth in the minor Summer Juvenile Championship at Los Alamitos in July. Ralis has been wildly inconsistent so far but has looked very good at times in his six starts. Javier Castellano gets the call from post 11 hoping to gain a little consistency for Ralis.
Cocked and Loaded 12-1 - Larry Rivelli trained colt won his first two career starts but stumbled badly after that. He was sixth in the Grade 3 Sanford Stakes at Saratoga in July and fifth in the Grade 3 Arlington-Washington Futurity in August but most recently posted his best career result to date - by far. That was a win in the Grade 3 Iroquois Stakes at Churchill Downs September 12. Cocked and Loaded seems to have found something in his last race and hopes to parlay that success to this weekend. Irad Ortiz has been tabbed with getting Cocked and Loaded his second straight graded stakes score from post 5.
Riker 15-1 - has four career starts for trainer Nicholas Gonzalez with four wins - all at Woodbine. Last time out was a win in his stakes graded stakes debut - the Grade 3 Grey Stakes after consecutive minor stakes scores earlier this summer and a maiden score at first asking. Riker hasn't been touched yet and will be out to keep him impressive undefeated streak alive Saturday - from gate 2.
