The 34th running of the Breeders' Cup World Championships, will have a total of 14 races spread out over two days at Del Mar Racetrack, in San Diego, California on Friday, November 3, and Saturday, 4th, 2017 and kicks off with a series of "Win and You're In" Challenge races that lead up to the World Championships.
Every year, the Breeders' Cup Championship continues to grow in popularity because of its prestige and keen level of competition.
There has only been one horse in the history of the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint. Groupie Doll pulled off the back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013. Now, she may have company in the record books. Finest City is going to have her shot to write history as she goes for a second consecutive victory in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint on the second day of the Breeders' Cup.
Finest City might be the defending champion of this event, but she's far from the favorite in her five-year old season. Finest City hasn't been in the finest form over the course of the 2017 season, but she's still going to be given a lot of respect even though she's been beaten by plenty of these fillies and mares this year.
There are three automatic qualifying spots for the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint. Ironically, the projected favorite to win this race, Unique Bella, wasn't one of them. This Jerry Hollendorf-trained filly has been battling back from injuries this year and hasn't had a lot of runs against the big girls.
Curlin's Approval, By the Moon and Finley'sluckycharm are the three automatic qualifiers. Curlin's Approval was a huge longshot winner of the Princess Rooney Handicap in July, and she's largely been disappointing since then. She'll end up going off as one of the bigger longshots once again in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint.

Unique Bella has always largely been thought of as the heavy favorite to win this race, and she's set to go to post not all that far from odds-on. She's opened at 9 to 5 and is expected to get the majority of the money bet on her in some way, shape or form in this race.
Still, a three-year old has never won the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint, and that could open the door for others. The only other three horses who are single-digit shots to win this race are Skye Diamonds (a filly who has never run against Grade 1 competition), Finley'sluckycharm (with nine wins in 12 career races) and Paulassilverlining (the third place finisher in this race last year).
The pickings might be a little on the slimmer side at face value, but this also a race that includes four runners from last year's Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint, including the winner of the race, Finest City. That said, most of these horses are in the double-digit longshot race, including both Finest City and the favorite from that race a year ago, Carina Mia.
