1 Mendelssohn Aidan O'Brien Group 1 runner-up Newmarket, Scat Daddy $3 million yearling, sibling to Beholder, trainer won this race 3 last 6 8-1
2 Untamed Domain Graham Motion Talented but trouble-prone, up late over modest company in G2 Summer Stakes at Woodbine, will be rolling late 10-1
3 Sands of Mali Richard Fahey Puzzling misfire as apparent contender last out Newmarket G1, previously scored daylight wins sprint stakes 20-1
4 Catholic Boy Jonathan Thomas August victory Saratoga G3 validated when third-place finisher Untamed Domain returned to win G2 Summer 10-1
5 Beckford Gordon Elliott Runner-up twice Group 1's, no visible alibi finishing fifth as favorite last out Newmarket G1 won by U S Navy Flag 6-1
6 Masar Charlie Appleby Conspicuous European form includes G3 win + G1 third, improving pattern, major threat absent U S Navy Flag 4-1
7 James Garfield George Scott European Group 2 winner with style suits closers-friendly course profile, imports historically hold edge this race 5-1
8 Voting Control Chad Brown Likely best when compromised by slow start as runner-up G2 at Belmont Park, question quality of field he faced 15-1
9 Encumbered Simon Callaghan Dirt experiment did not pan out vs. Bolt d'Oro, returns to grass, won twice Del Mar turf including summer stakes 15-1
10 Flameaway Mark Casse Upset win in off-turf G3 Keeneland was his second win off-turf stakes, son of late Scat Daddy should love grass 20-1
11 Snapper Sinclair Steve Asmussen Improving colt legitimate contender, freshened since August, snappy $350k stakes Kentucky Downs, versatile style 12-1
12 Hemp Hemp Hurray Wesley Ward Respectable runner-up effort first beyond six furlongs G2 Summer at Woodbine, keeps pace honest from outside 15-1
13 My Boy Jack Keith Desormeaux Each start better than start before, deep closer scored maiden victory over suspect field $100k stakes Santa Anita 15-1
14 Rajasinghe Richard Spencer Outstanding UK form spring and summer, finished next to last in recent comeback race, current form uncertain 20-1

Not selected into the field and listed in order of preference by the Breeders' Cup Racing Directors/Secretaries Panel:
15 Tap Daddy Steve Asmussen Third across wire in Keeneland G3 on "sloppy" track, previously won maiden turf sprint on "yielding" 20-1
16 Pubilius Syrus Vladimir Cerin Maiden winner last out, each start better than start before, unlikely to make it into oversubscribed field 30-1

I'm throwing some money on Mendelssohn, Masar and my long shot pick is Sands of Mali.

Really surprised that we're getting 10-1 on a Brown/Castellano here.

I think things will change as we draw close to post. Many of these prices are way off it would seem.

Untamed Domain takes after his sire a great deal.

Out of fourteen high-strung juvenile colts, only Mendelssohn decided to "wave at the girls" for the viewers. :lol: Not quite up to Lani's standards, but still letting us know he's not a gelding.

Wow...Mendelssohn really lived up to his potential here. NICE win! Happy for Untamed Domain, since I loved Animal Kingdom.

Likewise, didn't have money on Untamed Domain though. Meanwhile, given the site I use goes with ML odds, Mendelssohn was the easiest money I've ever made :lol:
Sands of Mali could make a nice sprinter.

And Scat Daddy. :(
Another reminder of what we lost with his passing.

I was skeptical as I really thought he should be in the main track Juvenile. Shows what I know. ;)

Pleased he could break through at this level since has has such a gorgeous pedigree. And like others, I am also pleased to see Animal Kingdom's Untamed Domain run so well. Excited to see what both colts can do next season.
