CODY'S WISH SEEKS TITLE DEFENSE IN BIG ASS FANS BREEDERS' CUP DIRT MILE
OCT 25 - Complementing the FanDuel Mile during the Saturday program is the $1 million Big Ass Fans Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (G1), headlined by Godolphin's defending champion Cody's Wish. The nation was captivated last year by the incredible story of Cody Dorman, a teenager who was born with Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, a rare genetic disorder, who bonded with a Gainsborough Farm foal in Versailles, Ky., as a part of Keeneland's association with the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
That foal, of course, became Cody's Wish, and Cody Dorman was at Keeneland last year to see his namesake win the Dirt Mile. This year, Cody's Wish has won three of four starts, including grade 1 wins in the Churchill Downs Stakes presented by Ford (G1) and the Hill 'n' Dale Metropolitan Handicap (G1).
Big challenges to Cody's Wish could come from SF Racing, Starlight Racing and Madaket Stables et al's Preakness Stakes (G1) winner National Treasure, and Runhappy Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner Practical Move.

About the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile
The Breeders' Cup Las Vegas Dirt Mile is a 1-mile (1.6 km) Weight for Age stakes race for thoroughbred racehorses three years old and up. As its name implies, it is part of the Breeders' Cup thoroughbred championships, the de facto year-end championship for North American thoroughbred racing, and is run on a dirt course (either natural dirt or a synthetic surface such as Polytrack). This contrasts with the similar Breeders' Cup Mile, run on grass. All Breeders' Cups to date have been conducted in the United States, with the exception of the 1996 event in Canada.
The Dirt Mile race was run for the first time in 2007 during the first day of the expanded Breeders' Cup at that year's host track, Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, New Jersey. It became a Grade I event in 2009.
Occasionally, various track configurations require minor changes in the distance of the race. The 2007 race at Monmouth Park was held at a distance of 1 mile 70 yards (1673 m) instead of the normal distance of 1-mile (1.6 km). The 2015 Breeders' Cup will be held at Keeneland, which does not have the ability to run one mile dirt races, and so the Dirt Mile is scheduled to be run out of the backstretch chute at a distance of 7 furlongs, 384 feet (1525 m).
