Six Breeders’ Cup champs will try to do it again

Six previous Breeders’ Cup champions were pre-entered last Wednesday for Friday’s and Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup XXVII at Churchill Downs, including the unbeaten Zenyatta and top European turf miler Goldikova, who will be attempting to win a record third consecutive Breeders’ Cup Mile.

The other four champions include Midday in the Filly & Mare Turf, California Flag in the Turf Sprint, Informed Decision in the Filly & Mare Sprint and Forever Together, who won the 2008 Filly & Mare Turf but finished third last year.

Midday, trained by Henry Cecil, has won three of four races in 2010, including consecutive Group 1 victories in the Nassau Stakes and Yorkshire Oaks in Great Britain and the Prix Vermeille in France. The 4-year-old Oasis Dream filly’s biggest competition could come from the John Shirreffs-trained Harmonious, a 3-year-old daughter of Dynaformer who won the American Oaks at Hollywood Park on July 3 and goes into the Breeders’ Cup off a 4 1/4-length victory in the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup on Oct. 16 at Keeneland.

What do you think of these six horses’ chances this year?
