Bob Baffert, Tim Ice, John Shirreffs, Jerry Moss, and Chip Woolley take questions after the Breeders' Cup post position draw
Zenyatta installed as 5-to-2 favorite in Classic

Post positions for the 26th Breeders' Cup World Championships were drawn on November 3 at Santa Anita. Jerry Moss, owner of the unbeaten filly Zenyatta, chose to race on Saturday in the Breeders' Cup Classic rather than on Friday in the Ladies' Classic.

"She deserves to be here," explained Moss after the draw. "She's done everything right."

"And Jerry Moss deserves applause for putting Zenyatta in the race," claimed Bob Baffert. "With Zenyatta joining the field, it's going to be one of the best Classics ever!"

Breeders’ Cup races are shown below. Approximate post times are shown in Pacific Time.
