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.
