Tuesday is Draw Day at the Breeders' Cup World Championships, and even more horses out on the track today to test the racing surfaces before the post positions were drawn at noon, including one timed work. It felt cooler than Monday morning, in the low 40's with a light breeze and clear skies. Here are photos for 36 of the horses on the track, all different from Monday, except one who had a timed work, with comments.

Breeders' Cup Entries and Post Positions - for all 14 races with morning line odds

Goldikova will attempt to become the first 3-time winner of a BC race when she breaks from post 10 in the Mile on Saturday. On Tuesday she jogged on the outside of the main track. Regular rider Olivier Peslier will be aboard again for trainer Freddy Head.

Workforce, the 7-5 morning line favorite in the Turf out of post 6, galloped on the turf Tuesday morning. He may be scratched from Saturday's race if the ground remains too firm for the Epsom Derby and Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner. There has been minimal rain in Louisville over the last 2 months and the turf course is very firm right now. If he runs, regular rider Ryan Moore will be aboard.

Midday, defending champion in the Filly and Mare Turf, drew post 7 and is the 6-5 morning line favorite. She finished second in the Middleton Stakes in May and then won three straight G1 races, the Nassau, Yorkshire Oaks, and Prix Vermeille. Tom Queally will again be in the irons Friday for trainer Henry Cecil.

Air Support drew post 4 in the Juvenile Turf and is 8-1 on the morning line. The Pilgrim Stakes winner worked 4f in 48 2/5 at Belmont on Sunday before shipping. Rajiv Maragh will be in the irons Saturday for trainer Shug McGaughey.

Beethoven drew post 1 in the Mile and is a 20-1 outsider on the morning line. He cleared quarantine at 5pm Monday and came out on the track Tuesday. John Murtagh gets the call Saturday for trainer Aidan O'Brien.

Behkabad is the 9-5 morning line second choice in the Turf out of post 7. Tuesday was his first time out on the track after clearing quarantine Monday afternoon. Christophe Lemaire will be aboard on Saturday for trainer Jean-Claude Rouget.

Bright Horizon drew post 9 in Friday's Marathon and is 10-1 on the morning line. He won the 2 mile Irish Cesarewitch Handicap last out. John Murtagh gets the call for Aidan O'Brien.

Dux Scholar galloped on the turf but was not entered in the Juvenile Turf by trainer Sir Michael Stoute, apparently unhappy with the firm surface.

Espoir City will break from the 11 post in the Classic under jockey Tetsuzo Sato for trainer Akio Adachi. He is 20-1 on the morning line.

Grand Adventure drew post 11 in the Turf Sprint and is 12-1 on the morning line. Trainer Mark Frostad said, "I'd rather be on the outside than the inside with this horse. At five furlongs, it could get pretty rough down on the inside at the break." Regular rider Patrick Husbands gets the call on Saturday.

Harmonious drew post 6 in the Filly and Mare Turf and is 6-1 on the morning line. She went out for a maintenance gallop on the main track Tuesday morning as her trainer John Shirreffs was en route to Louisville from California with stablemate Zenyatta. The Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup winner arrived Monday from Keeneland. Joel Rosario gets the call on Friday.

Havre de Grace is 4-1 third choice in Friday's Ladies Classic and drew the outside post 11 for trainer Tony Dutrow. Jeremy Rose gets the call. Dutrow said, "The number 11 is a disappointment. I'd rather it had not been the 11. Blind Luck is right next to us (in post 10) so we'll have to run Blind Luck's race. We have to take hold and be a length or two in front and finish up strong."

Izshelegal drew the 7 hole for the Juvenile Fillies for trainer Terry Knight. Mike Smith will be aboard the 30-1 longshot on Friday.

Jordy Y will break from the outside post 13 in the Juvenile Fillies at 30-1 morning line. Joel Rosario will be in the irons for Wayne Catalano. Catalano said, "She's only run on the Polytrack so far but she may be a dirt horse. Her pedigree is more dirt than anything."

Joyful Victory is 15-1 in the Juvenile Fillies. Ramon Dominguez rides Friday for trainer Tony Dutrow, who said of post 6, "That's great. She's right there in the middle of things."

Master of Hounds is the lukewarm 9-2 favorite in the Juvenile Turf. After clearing quarantine at 5pm Monday, he came out Tuesday morning. John Murtagh will be aboard for trainer Aidan O'Brien out of post 5.

Million Seller is a 50-1 outsider in the Marathon on Friday. He arrived from Fair Hill Training Center in Maryland on Monday and was out on the track here Tuesday. He drew post 3 for trainer Graham Motion and will have Jeremy Rose in the irons.

Morning Line is the 7-2 morning line favorite in the Dirt Mile out of post 10. He was sent out for a gallop by trainer Nick Zito, and will have Javier Castellano aboard on Saturday.

Paco Boy drew post 6 in the Mile and is 6-1 morning line. He has finished behind Goldikova 3 times this year including the Prix de la Foret last out. Ryan Moore gets the call for trainer Richard Hannon.

Paddy O'Prado drew post 2 for Saturday's Classic, and is 15-1 morning line. Trainer Dale Romans said, In a 12-horse field going 1 1/4, I don't think there's a bad post. I just like to have a horse on each side of me; that worked out well. I think Paddy O'Prado out of the 2-hole, he's going to drop back and try to make one run anyway." Kent Desormeaux gets the call.

Pashito the Che worked 4 furlongs on Tuesday morning in 51 4/5 seconds, and then drew post 6 in the Sprint at 15-1 morning line. Trainer Scott Lake said, "Love the position. Six on out would have been fine with us. On paper the 15-1 morning line is a fair assessment, but we're better than people think." Javier Castellano will be in the irons.

Pleasant Prince is a 30-1 outsider in the Classic out of post 9. Trainer Wesley Ward will have Joel Rosario aboard on Saturday. Ward said, "I'm very happy with the post. He's out a little ways, but not too far. I expect him to be back a ways early, but still ahead of the big mare, Zenyatta. I'm hoping he'll be running as well as he's been feeling lately. I expect him to run along in mid-pack and then come with his big run at the end. We're hopeful of a big finish."

Plumania drew the rail for the Filly and Mare Turf at 8-1 morning line. In her last start she was 17th in the Arc against males, and 2 starts back she finished a close second to Midday in the Prix Vermeille. Regular rider Olivier Peslier will be aboard the Andre Fabre trainee.

Precision Break is 15-1 on the Marathon morning line. The Paul Cole trainee will have Jamie Spencer in the irons on Friday.

Quick Enough will have to live up to his name in the Turf Sprint on Saturday at 8-1 morning line, breaking from the 8 hole for trainer Doris Harwood and jockey Pat Valenzuela.

Quiet Oasis drew the 3 hole in the Juvenile Fillies Turf for trainer Brian Meehan. He cleared quarantine Monday afternoon and tested the track Tuesday for the first time. She was fourth in the Park Stakes at Curragh last out. Frankie Dettori gets the call aboard the 8-1 shot on Friday.

Romp is a 50-1 longshot in the Marathon for trainer Kristin Mulhall. Martin Garcia will be aboard on Friday.

Rough Sailing will go in the Juvenile Turf on Saturday out of post 11. Anna Napravnik gets the call for trainer Michael Stidham.

Silver Medallion was pre-entered for the Juvenile Turf as an also-eligible but the Chad Brown trainee did not make final entry.

Shared Account is a 30-1 outsider in the Filly and Mare Turf. On Tuesday she galloped over the main track after arriving from Fair Hill, Maryland on Monday. Edgar Prado will be in the irons Friday for trainer Graham Motion.

Smiling Tiger drew post 5 in Saturday's Sprint and is 6-1 morning line for trainer Jeff Bonde. Russell Baze gets the call.

Supreme Summit is a 15-1 longshot in the Sprint for trainer Mike Puype. Jockey Garrett Gomez will break from post 9 on Saturday.

The Usual Q.T. galloped once around with his tail raised on Tuesday morning on the main track, and may gallop on the turf once this week. He drew post 7 in the Mile at 15-1 morning line. Regular rider Victor Espinoza will be in the irons for trainer James Cassidy.

Together is the 5-1 second choice in the Juvenile Fillies Turf for trainer Aidan O'Brien. Pat Keating, head lad for O'Brien said she shipped well from Ireland and "we couldn't be happier." Jockey John Murtagh gets the call on Friday.

Willcox Inn is a 20-1 outsideer in the Juvenile Turf on Saturday. John Velazquez will break from post 7 for trainer Michael Stidham.

Winter Memories is the 2-1 favorite in the Juvenile Fillies Turf. Jose Lezcano will be aboard the James Toner trainee out of post 7. Toner said, "I'd rather be the favorite than a long shot. She's done everything right so far. She looks good, is training good and comes into the race as good as we could expect. I think we drew a good post position. It's in the middle. I'm happy with that. We just have to get lucky and get the trip."
