The 2013 Breeders’ Cup World Championships are all set to go this weekend, with five races to be run on Friday, and nine more on the card for Saturday at Santa Anita Racetrack. The first race up on Saturday afternoon is the $2,000,000 Juvenile Fillies, running 1 1/16 miles on the dirt track. With 10 horses expected to go to the gate, the Juvenile Fillies should be one of the more wide-open races of Breeders’ Cup weekend, particularly since the two morning line favorites are on inside and outside posts.

Two favorites start far apart in a rematch

Down on the rail, Artemis Agrotera (3-1) carries the hopes of New York-breds in the race. After breaking her maiden first time out in mid-August, she came back to capture the Grade I Frizette Stakes over her main challenger in here, Sweet Reason (5-2). Sweet Reason will break from the #9 post, and had won the Grade I Spinaway Stakes by a convincing 5 1/2 lengths. The question for both is what kind of position they will get from the break, and if they will be able to handle the distance, since neither has run over one mile.

Florida filly would be a huge upset winner

One that has won at the distance and on the Santa Anita dirt is Secret Compass (6-1), who took the Grade I Chandelier Stakes, wearing down She’s A Tiger (also in here at 6-1) in deep stretch, in a race that developed very slow times, especially in the final quarter-mile. An interesting longshot is Scandalous Act (8-1), who ships in from Florida where she has destroyed the competition on her way to winning four of five minor stakes events at Calder, the last being the My Dear Girl Stakes at the Juvenile Fillies distance.

Post time for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies is 12:05 PM PDT
