World Thoroughbred Championships Pre-Entries

Updated: 10/23/02

Entries and post positions are now available here

Led by Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner War Emblem, Travers Stakes winner Medaglia d'Oro, Pacific Classic winner Came Home, European star Rock of Gibraltar (IRE) and top-rated filly Azeri, 104 horses, including 23 from Europe and 12 supplemental entries, have been pre-entered for the 2002 Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships at Arlington Park. The total of 104 horses pre-entered matches last year's total.

Pre-entered fields are linked to below and profiles for all horses will be up soon. In races that are oversubscribed (more than 14 horses pre-entered), the top seven Breeders' Cup point earners gain automatic berths. The remaining seven horses are selected by the Breeders' Cup Racing Directors/Secretaries Panel. The panel has also ranked all horses not selected into the body of the field in preference order. Should there be a defection from a field, horses will fill any vacancies in the order of ranking until the time of entry, Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 10:00 a.m. CT. Post positions for all eight Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships races will be drawn at that time.

The eight race series will be televised live on NBC from 1:00 to 6:00pm Eastern time and the audio portion will also be broadcast live on the internet via Real Audio.
