The big showdown may be five weeks away, but the battle lines were drawn in the mud Oct. 1 at a dank Aqueduct Racetrack.

A day after colts get their chance to prep for and earn a free spot in the 2022 Breeders’ Cup, 2-year-old fillies will get their chance Sunday in the Frizette Stakes at Aqueduct, held during the Belmont at the Big A meet. The Grade 1 stakes will be contested at a mile, but will be run around one turn.

The setting might be different this year, but Saturday’s edition of the Champagne Stakes remains as important as ever in the chase for the TVG Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and the 2-year-old championship.

The $300,000 Awesome Again Stakes is the marquee race of opening weekend of the 2022 fall meet at Santa Anita Park, with the Grade 1 race Oct.

After a weekend with no domestic “Win and You’re In” preps, the Road to the 2022 Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Keeneland Race Course picks up a convoy’s worth of momentum over the upcoming weekend, with qualifying preps set for Saturday and Sunday on both coasts as well as overseas.
