Sunday was cold, overcast, and windy, but no rain until after training hours were over. The main track was rated fast and the turf course rated good. The clockers were busy this morning with 20 Breeders' Cup horses having timed works. The post position draw will be Monday evening, so check out all the entries, post positions, and morning line odds here later that night.

Here are photos for 45 of the horses on Sunday morning or arriving at the track in the afternoon. All Breeders' Cup contenders must be on the grounds 72 hours prior to their race. Click the small picture to see a larger version.

horse racing breeders cup Catholic Boy (Classic) worked 5 furlongs in 1:01.00 this morning with regular rider Javier Castellano aboard. "It was a good work," trainer Jonathan Thomas said. "It always takes a lot of anxiety out of our lives when these horses have their final works.

"We just wanted to let him stretch his legs. We may not have the fastest horse in the race, but he may be the fittest. He deserves a shot."

"Both of these horses (Topper T and Channel Maker) worked well today," Bill Mott's assistant trainer Kenny McCarthy said.

Meanwhile, Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott's Breeders' Cup Juvenile (GI) contender Topper T began his half-mile breeze approximately 10 seconds earlier from the half-mile pole. "We weren't really anticipating having company," said trainer Luis Carvajal Jr., who also has been acting as Imperial Hint's groom while he is at Churchill Downs.

horse racing breeders cup Monomoy Girl (Distaff) worked 4 furlongs in 48.40 this morning under regular rider Florent Geroux in company with older male allowance level runner Dazzling Gem. "Dazzling Gem was aggressive going to the pole," trainer Brad Cox said. "The plan was for Monomoy Girl to sit right off him, but Dazzling Gem was aggressive. It still worked out well. Florent was able to range up to him and they went head and head. It was what we were looking for. We didn't want to do as much as we had in the other works. I caught her in :49 2/5 and out in 1:01 4/5, so a solid breeze."
