Santa Anita in Arcadia, California, hosts a festival of future stars on Friday at the 2019 Breeders’ Cup.
The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile is the headline race on Future Stars Friday, with the winner likely to be installed as one of the favourites for next year’s Kentucky Derby.
As ever, Friday will provide racegoers with an opportunity to see the best two-year-olds in the business go head-to-head.

In 2006, Street Sense won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and went on to win the Kentucky Derby the following May.
Since then, only Nyquist, the 2015 winner, has repeated that trick.
But Friday’s event over 8 ½ furlongs will still provide a good indication of which three-year-olds could be in the running come 2020’s Triple Crown races.
Recent Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winners Classic Empire (2016), Good Magic (2017) and Game Winner (2018) have all gone to Churchill Downs among the favourites.
Trainer Bob Baffert is, unsurprisingly, a Juvenile expert, with four wins in the race. The Hall of Famer has one of the favourites for the 2019 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile in the shape of Eight Rings, who has two wins from three career outings, most recently triumphing at Santa Anita in September’s American Pharoah Stakes
ARCADIA >> Sometimes the information a jockey offers his trainer after the race is more important than the ride he just put forth.
Ask trainer Peter Eurton, who saddled 45-1 longshot Storm the Court for a win in the $2 million Juvenile on the first day of the 36th Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita on Friday in front of an announced crowd of 41,243.
After the colt’s last start, a third-place finish in the Grade I American Pharoah Stakes at Santa Anita on Sept. 27, jockey Flavien Prat suggested to Eurton that he add blinkers to the son of Court Vision in his next race.
