The 2018 Breeders’ Cup World Championships are less then a week away and one of the most anticipated races of the event is the Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff, which drew the last two winners of the Longines Kentucky Oaks — Monomoy Girl (2018) and Abel Tasman (2017) — as well as Blue PrizeMidnight BisouVale Dori, and Wow Cat coming off of Grade 1 wins and Canadian dual classic winner Wonder Gadot.

We have a terrific cheat sheet for the Distaff and we’ll follow with a gambling analysis of the race next week, but sometimes fans are looking for a closer look at the contenders that only a set of fantastic images can provide. With that in mind, America’s Best Racing has put together a comprehensive slideshow of the horses expected to compete in the Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff on Nov. 3 at Churchill Downs.

For most of the contenders, we were able to find a nice closeup image, a workout photo, and a racing photo to help racing fans get to know each of the top Distaff contenders, which appear alphabetically here.
