Preview: Breeders' Cup Juvenile 2020 ( Horses, Racecard, 2019 Video)
This year's Breeders' Cup Juvenile might lack overall depth, but it features two colts at the top who could be absolute stars.
Jackie's Warrior has been the early favourite since his win in the Gr.2 Saratoga Special. He strengthened that claim with an impressive win in the Hopeful in September.
Just when it looked like the Maclean's Music colt would run away with the Juvenile, Essential Quality emerged as a serious threat with a powerful win in the Breeders' Futurity at Keeneland. Not only was it a visually impressive victory, but the win came over the surface of the Juvenile, and going two turns in only his second career start.
Suddenly, Jackie's Warrior looked to have some real competition as he prepared for his final prep in the Gr.1 Champagne Stakes.
