The Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff is coming to Santa Anita Park on Friday, and out of all 13 World Championship events, it may be the race I’m most excited about. The field is absolutely stacked, with the undefeated Songbird taking on two-time Breeders’ Cup winner Beholder, her rival Stellar Wind, and a whole lot of other very talented fillies and mares.

I was able to see quite a few of the Longines Distaff contenders this morning, and I’ll share my photos and thoughts on the fillies and mares in the slideshow below. Friday’s Distaff is shaping up to be an unforgettable race, and I for one can’t wait!
