Adhrhythm - Centaur Farm's 2yo filly Adhrhythm breezed 5f in 1:01 at her home base of Calder Race Course in Miami, Fla. on Friday morning and began her long van ride to Louisville on Sunday.  She arrived at Churchill Downs on Monday morning.

            Trainer Eddie Plesa, Jr. indicated that jockey Edgar Prado would have the mount on Adhrhythm in the Breeders Cup

Adoradora - Ninth on Preference list

Appealing Zophie - The Spinaway winner had her final serious prep for the Juvenile fillies on Monday, breezing 4f in 50 4/5.

            "She had her serious prep at Keeneland when she worked three-quarters last week," said trainer Scott Blasi. We wanted something pretty even and that's what we got. We're very happy with her."

Awesome Ashley - Still on the bubble if she gets in or not, the 2yo Unbridled's Song filly worked 4f in 47 1/5 on Belmont Park's fast training track Monday morning to signal that she is ready for her next assignment, whatever it is.

"The [post-position] draw is Wednesday morning, and the plane doesn't leave until 12:30, so we should know before if she's in or not," Pletcher said. "She's training well, as you saw today, but if she doesn't go in the Breeders' Cup, we'll run in the Demoiselle."

Aqueduct's Demoiselle for 2yo fillies at nine furlongs will be run on Sat., Nov. 25. Pletcher did not name a jockey for Awesome Ashley in the Juvenile Fillies.   

Baroness Thatcher - Fifth on Preference list. Finished seventh in Pocahontas at Churchill Downs Sunday.

Bel Air Beauty - The Alcibiades winner walked the shedrow of trainer Frankie Brother's Churchill Downs barn on Monday, following her final 5f workout in 1:01 on Sunday.

            "She came out of the work fine," reported Brothers. "She'll go back to the track tomorrow and jog. She came out of her last race well and we're very happy. I think that's the most a trainer can say."

Cash Included - Cash Included walked the shedrow Monday morning following a flight from Southern California to Churchill Downs on Sunday.

The filly will be joined Tuesday by her trainer, Craig Dollase, who will fly from his Hollywood Park base.

She will be ridden by Corey Nakatani on Saturday.

Catch the Thrill - Fourth on Preference list

Cohiba Miss - Trainer Bernie Flint continues to remain optimistic that his filly, first on the Preference list, will draw into Saturday's race. The Cat Thief filly walked the shedrow on Monday, a day after being scratched from the Pocahontas Stakes and sent out for a workout.

            "Her owner (Mike Rutherford) and I talked and agreed that you can run in $100,000 races all over the country, but there is only one $2 million race for juvenile fillies," said Flint. "We're going to take our chances that we'll get in. This is the big dance and everyone wants to go in the big dance."

"She's won two races at a mile, her sire is a Breeders' Cup winner and her dam's by Danzig, so she's earned her way into the race. She's an iron filly. She's won at six furlongs and she's won at a mile."

Jockey Willie Martinez will have the mount if Cohiba Miss makes the field.

Cotton Blossom - Walked the shedrow after working 5f in 1:01 on Sunday. Fourth in the Alcibiades at Keeneland, the 2yo Broken Vow filly was impressive in that race in that she broke from post 11, pressed the pace, got involved in some bumping and finished fourth, beaten three and a quarter lengths for it all.

In hindsight, trainer Todd Pletcher believes that she was too close to the lead on that Polytrack surface.

"Only a handful of horses, from what I've seen, have won on the lead during the Keeneland meet," Pletcher said. "She was the most forwardly placed of the horses in that race, and I hope she comes back and really takes to the track at Churchill."

John Velazquez has the mount on Cotton Blossom.

Dreaming of Anna - Frank Calabrese's homebred hopeful for the Juvenile Fillies, walked the shedrow Monday morning, a day after working a bullet 4f in 47 flat under Breeders' Cup rider Rene Douglas Sunday.

            Trainer Wayne Catalano said the daughter of Rahy would return to the track in the morning.

            With a spotless record of three wins in three starts, Dreaming of Anna is the lone undefeated pre-entrant in the Juvenile Fillies. Catalano was asked when he knew he had something special in Dreaming of Anna, who has two stakes wins, including a victory over the boys in the Summer Stakes at Woodbine going a mile on the grass.

            "She had indicated she could run when they started breaking her and they thought she could be a special filly," Catalano said. "When I got her and started breezing her, she started breezing well and we thought she was going to be a good horse."

            The breeze Sunday at Churchill, a day after arriving from Keeneland, delighted Catalano.

            "That was a good work," Catalano said of the move that was the best of  71 at the distance. "Rene was trying to ease off at the five-eighths pole, but there was a lot of traffic, so he got her away from there a little bit fast."

Gatorize - Walked the shedrow Monday after working 5f in 1:02 2/5 on Sunday with Mark Guidry, her rider for the Breeders' Cup.

            "I was very happy," trainer Helen Pitts said of the move. "It was just a maintenance breeze. It put her right on target."

            The filly will gallop up to the race. She'll also school in the paddock during the races Wednesday afternoon.

Gal Wonder - Third on Preference list

Her Majesty - Galloped 11/2m at Keeneland Monday, and trainer Patrick Biancone said she will work a half-mile there on Wednesday.

            She will ship with Biancone's other three Breeders' Cup starters - Gorella, Mauralakana and Asi Siempre - to Churchill Downs on Thursday afternoon.

            All four of the Biancone trainees will be ridden Saturday by Julien Leparoux, who just lost his apprentice allowance in late September.

Lilly Carson - One day after getting the word that his filly had made it into the oversubscribed juvenile fillies' field, trainer Ralph Nicks sent Lilly Carson to the track to jog and school in the paddock.

            "It is very helpful knowing she's in the field," said Nicks. "She did her serious work last week, so we won't do anything creative. She'll just have a strong gallop either Tuesday or Wednesday.

            "She's a big strong filly, but a little hyper. She was a little cranked up this morning and I think that's what cost us the Frizette. She gunned it out of the gate and ran her eyeballs out that day. There was such a strong headwind down the backstretch that it just was too much for her to do.

            "We know we'll be the pace in the race. We'll just have to see how long she wants to run."

Mistical Plan  - Sixth on Preference list. Finished second in the Pocahontas on Sunday.

Octave - She walked the shedrow after working 5f in 1:01 on Belmont Park's training track on Sunday. Regular rider Garrett Gomez will again be aboard this 2yo daughter of 1995 Juvenile winner Unbridled's Song.

She was just beaten a head in Belmont's 7f Matron on Sept. 23, and she returns to Churchill Downs, where she broke her maiden at first asking back on May 27. "I think she is going to like more distance," said trainer Todd Pletcher, "but you never know until they do it."

Pro Pink - Raced Sunday and finished fourth in the Pocahontas Stakes and is out of consideration for the Breeders' Cup, trainer Jamie Sanders said Monday.

            Sanders noted that Pro Pink was not selected into the field and was eighth in order of preference for drawing into it. "She was No. 22," she said. "She would have had to have 10 defect, well, not 10, but a lot, so we ran her yesterday.

            "She ran a good race. She's a horse who likes to come running, and she did come running, but the speed kept running, too."

Quick Little Miss - Annabelle Stute and The Hat Ranch's Quick Little Miss walked the shedrow at trainer Mel Stute's barn at Santa Anita Monday morning, a day after working 5f in 58 3/5, the fastest clocking of 35 at the distance Sunday.

            "I was very happy with the work, she worked great," said Stute of the Freud filly, who is scheduled to leave her California base Tuesday and arrive at Churchill Downs late Tuesday afternoon. "Jon Court was on her and will be aboard her for the Breeders' Cup."

Rivanna River - Eighth on Preference list.

Satulagi - The Kentucky-bred daughter of Officer, who has done all her racing in England, arrived at Churchill Downs Sunday evening after a flight from Europe, and will remain in quarantine until Monday night. She is expected to be out on the track Tuesday morning for light exercise.

            Stan Moore trains Satulagi, who is the most experienced of all the runners in the Juvenile Fillies with nine starts already this year. She has won twice this season and in her last start finished fourth in the Fillies Mile at Ascot in September. John Egan, who has been aboard in all but two of her races, has the call Saturday.

She's Included - The California-based filly, who shipped from Los Angeles on Sunday, went trackside at 7:45 Monday morning under exercise rider Jose Valcso for a 1 1/2m spin around the big Churchill Downs' oval.

            Bonnie Paasch, who flew with the filly and her stablemate Principle Secret (bound for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile), oversaw the Monday exercise and was pleased with the outcome.

            "She'll basically gallop up to the race," she said, "though we'll ask her to do something stronger - a good gallop with a strong finish - in the middle of the week, either Wednesday or Thursday."

            Bonnie Paasch is the wife of trainer Christopher Paasch, who is the filly's conditioner. Christopher Paasch was scheduled to fly in from California Monday afternoon.

She's Included, whose best effort thus far was a third-place finish in the Del Mar Debutante, will be handled by Victor Espinoza Saturday.

Sutra - Oak Crest Farm's Sutra left Monday morning from Keeneland for the short van ride to Churchill Downs and her engagement in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.

            Sutra had an eventful work Sunday morning at Keeneland, going 5f  in 59 1/5.

            "Things did not go exactly as planned, because her saddle slipped at the eighth pole," trainer Michael Stidham said. "I couldn't see what happened and I was afraid she had hurt herself when she was pulled up. But she was OK and the work was good."

            Regular exercise rider Frank Todd was up for the work on Sutra, who will be ridden Saturday by Mike Luzzi.

Untouched Talent - Trainer Jeff Bonde informed Breeders' Cup racing officials Sunday morning that James Vreeland Sr., Tommy Town Thoroughbreds and John Sikura's 2-year-old filly Untouched Talent will miss Saturday's Juvenile Fillies at Churchill Downs.

The daughter of Storm Cat underwent a procedure for an entrapped epiglottis. Untouched Talent finished second in the Alcibiades Stakes at Keeneland last out on Oct. 7 after shipping east from California. The defection allowed James Spence's Lilly Carson to draw in off the Preference list.
