Only the Mile and the Juvenile have a full field of 14 this year while both the Turf and the Distaff only have a field of 8. As expected, Azeri is the heavy favorite for the Distaff with morningline odds of 6-5. Other big favorites include Storm Flag Flying at 1-1 in the
The walking ring at Arlington decorated for the Breeders' Cup.
