2013 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Race Favorite Entries

Havana - Todd Pletcher trained colt has two career starts - a 2 3/4 length MSW score August 23 at Saratoga with a terrific Beyer Speed Figure of 102 and a superb win last time out in the Grade 1 Foxwoods Champagne Stakes at Belmont Park October 5. He has been sensational in his young career and is the 5-2 favorite for the Juvenile despite never racing two turns. John Velazquez has the call from post 13 Saturday.

Strong Mandate - D Wayne Lukas trained colt will be making his fifth career start Saturday after a fifth in his debut and a Maiden score at Saratoga August 17. Last time out was an ultra- disappointing seventh in the Grade 1 Foxwoods Champagne Stakes October 5 after he put his name on the radar with an impressive win 9 3/4 length over Casiguapo in the Grade 1 Hopeful Stakes September 2 at Saratoga. Despite the hiccup last time out Strong mandate is the 6-1 co-second choice on the morning line and departs from the far outside post.

Tap It Rich - Bob Baffert trainee has just one career start and it was a good one - a MSW 4 1/4 length score on this track October 12. Despite the lack of action Tap It Rich comes with some hype. He is the co-second choice at 6-1 odds and will line up in post 6 with Mike Smith aboard.

Breeders' Cup Juvenile 2013 | Remaining Contenders

Bond Holder - Doug O'Neill trainee debuted with a fifth in the minor Hollywood Juvenile Championship Stakes July 13 and has raced three MSW races after that - all at Del Mar. He was a second August 31 after a third August 11 and another third July 27. Last time out he made a graded stakes debut to remember - a terrific win in the Grade I FrontRunner Stakes on this track September 28. He is an intriguing 8-1 on the morning line and will get Mario Gutierrez to ride him from post 5.

Dance With Fate - Debuted July 14 at Hollywood Park and finished an ugly eighth in a MSW but bounced back with a win in a MSW on this track August 11. Last time out was a good second behind Bond Holder in the Grade 1 FrontRunner Stakes here September 28 after a troubled second behind Tamarando in the Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity September 4. Dance With Fate is 8-1 on the morning line and will have Rafael Bejarano in the saddle from the 2-hole.

New Year's Day - Bob Baffert trained colt has two career starts - both MSW races. Last time out was a win that followed a third in his debut - both results at Del Mar. Despite the lack of experience in stakes caliber races, New Year's Day is 8-1 on the morning line and will depart from post 4 with Martin Garcia aboard.

We Miss Artie - Todd Pletcher hopeful had a three length MSW score August 11 after a second in his debut in a similar race at Belmont Park July 4. Last time out was terrific win in the Grade 1 Dixiana Breeders' Futurity at Keeneland October 5 after a disappointing sixth in his stakes debut - in the Grade 2 With Anticipation Stakes at Saratoga August 29. That win last out was on Polytrack - his turf form is a tad sketchy. We Miss Artie is one of the host of entries being sent off at 8-1 odds and leaves from post 10 with Javier Castellano guiding him.

Mexikoma - has just two career starts but broke maiden last time out September 12 at Delaware Park after a seventh in his debut at Saratoga in July. He is 12-1 on the morning line and will have Alan Garcia in the saddle from post 5

Cleburne - Dale Romans trainee is coming off a terrific win in the Grade 3 Iroquois Stakes at Churchill Downs September 7 in only his second career start. His debut was good too - a MSW score at Ellis Park August 16. He will have Corey Nakatani ion the reins from post 7 Saturday.

Diamond Bachelor - Has been very good so far in his young career for trainer Patrick Biancone - a second place finish last time out in the minor Zuma Beach Stakes here October 6 followed two wins including the minor Oak Tree Juvenile Turf Stakes at Del Mar September 4. He goes off at 12-1 odds from post 12 with Julien Leparoux in the saddle.

Smarty's Echo - most recently finished second behind We Miss Artie in the Grade 1 Dixiana Breeders' Futurity at Keeneland October 5 after two MSW races produced a win two back and a third in his debut August 22. His only start on turf was his worst career result - that third in his debut. He will have E.T. Baird guiding him from the rail Saturday and goes off at 20-1 odds.

Medal Count - Dale Romans trained colt has two career starts - a MSW score in his debut at Ellis Park was followed by a fifth last time out in the Grade 3 Bourbon Stakes at Keeneland October 6. Robby Albarado gets the mount from post 11 at 20-1 odds Saturday.

He is 30-1 on the morning line and will have Eurico Rosa da Silva aboard from post 8.

Rum Point - Doug O'Neill trained colt made his stakes debut September 4 with a distant ninth in the Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity after a MSW win August 3 and a third in a MSW at Hollywood Park July 14.
