This year, he has pre-entered 13 horses including previous Cup winners Rushing Fall, Sistercharlie and Uni.

Watch the 2020 Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland live on Sky Sports Racing (Sky 415 | Virgin 535) on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th November.

EDITOR AT LARGE (Juvenile Fillies Turf): Irish-bred daughter of Lope de Vega won her debut at Saratoga on closing day of that meet (September 7th) before finishing third behind Plum Ali in the Grade 2 Miss Grillo at Belmont Park.

“I think the pace wasn’t in her favour,” Brown said of the Miss Grillo. “Additionally, it looks now she needed one more start to really come forward. I see a much sharper, more professional horse in her works now and sometimes that’s what it takes.”

Brown has won the Juvenile Fillies Turf five times.

PUBLIC SECTOR (Juvenile Turf): Great Britain-bred son of Kingman won his debut at Saratoga on August 15 then came back to finish second to Fire At Will in the Grade 2 Pilgrim, where he was trying to close into a slow pace.

“He got paced out in his race,” Brown said. “I’m really looking forward to a cutback to a mile for that horse with some pace in front of him.”

REINVESTMENT RISK (Juvenile): Kentucky-bred son of Upstart won his debut by 7 1-4 lengths going six furlongs on dirt at Saratoga on August 1st. He has since finished second twice to Jackie’s Warrior in both the Grade 1 Hopeful at Saratoga and Grade 1 Champagne at Belmont Park.

“I just don’t think he cared for the track at Belmont on that day,” Brown said. “That said, the winner was super impressive and it was hard imagining anybody beating him even if he loved the track.

“I think he’s going to appreciate trying a different surface at Keeneland,” Brown added. “I have a feeling that track is going to play a little more like Saratoga and nothing like Belmont. The (refurbished) Saratoga track when I first started training on it reminded me a lot of Saratoga. I hope that’s true because he moved far better in his races on that track.”

FRONT RUN THE FED (Turf Sprint): Is coming off a neck loss to Imprimis in the Kentucky Downs Turf Sprint at six furlongs. The 5 1-2 furlongs of the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint is going to be the shortest this four-year-old son of Fed Biz has ever run.

Brown felt he was a bit trip-compromised at Kentucky Downs.

“I think the other horse got a little better trip than we did,” Brown said. “We moved early, he sat behind us and came around us and made the last move. I’m not sure if the trips were reversed that we wouldn’t have beat that horse.”

Brown believes it’s worth taking a shot because Front Run the Fed “is in the best form of his life. He’s had plenty of rest from the race, he hasn’t moved from Kentucky. He’s not without an upset chance in the race.”

COMPLEXITY (Dirt Mile): Son of Maclean’s Music is coming off two monster efforts in his last two races: a runner-up finish over an extremely sloppy track in the Grade 1 Forego at Saratoga on August 29th and a 2 1-4-length win over the multiple Grade 1 winner Code of Honor in the Grade 2 Kelso Handicap at Belmont on October 3rd.

He missed a little training time with an unspecified issue but has since come back to put in two satisfactory works to Brown.

“I was going to train him a little light anyway after the huge race he ran so having two works is fine by me,” Brown said. “I loved his two works. I think we’re in good shape.”

MY SISTER NAT (Filly and Mare Turf): A half-sister to 2018 Filly and Mare Turf winner Sistercharlie, this Group 3 winner for Francis-Henri Graffard in 2018 has just one win from eight starts since coming to Brown but she was beaten just a head in the Grade 1 Flower Bowl at Belmont on October 10th. She figures to be rallying late.

“She needs to get considerably faster to find the winner’s circle, but she’s a horse that’s going the right way and she’s never been training better,” Brown said. “In these situations, we might as well give her a chance to try and make that jump. If she can’t win maybe she can get at least a piece. She’s training better now than she’s trained in two years in this barn so that’s a good thing.”

NAY LADY NAY (Filly and Mare Turf): If the Irish-bred daughter can draw into the race, Brown and the owners want to give her a shot. A multiple graded stakes winner, she finished third in the Grade 1 Flower Bowl at 1 1-4 miles, which may have been a tick too far for her.

“With no other options, she’s training well enough if she can get into the race, I’m happy to run her,” Brown said. “We have a slight cutback off the mile and a quarter which seemed to be a little far for her. I know she got a wide trip in the Flower Bowl, it’s worth a shot.”

RUSHING FALL (Filly and Mare Turf): Accomplished the rare feat of winning a Grade 1 stakes for the fourth consecutive year when she captured the Jenny Wiley at Keeneland in July. She followed that up with her fifth career Grade 1 triumph when she took the Diana at Saratoga.

Rushing Fall, who won the 2017 Juvenile Fillies Turf, is 5 for 6 at Keeneland, her lone loss coming in last year’s First Lady when she ran fourth. Brown believes she may not have been fully right after getting sick earlier in the year.

She will be trying 1 3-16 miles for the first time, but Brown notes Dayatthespa in 2014 hadn’t run as far as 1 1-4 miles when she won this race at that distance at Santa Anita.

“I find when they get a little older certainly horses will run farther,” Brown said. “I think Rushing Fall fits in that category.”

SISTERCHARLIE (Filly and Mare Turf): From July 2018 through October 2018, she won six consecutive Grade 1 stakes including the 2018 Filly and Mare Turf, which capped a championship season.

This year, Sistercharlie is 0 for 2 with seemingly dull third-place finishes in the Grade 2 Ballston Spa and Grade 1 Diana.

“She continues to train up to the race the right way,” Brown said. “Sure, I wish I had more races under her belt this year. We planned on running her a lot more when Mr. (Peter) Brant made the decision to run her again this year. Of course, everyone’s plans this year got thrown into a tailspin and she’s no exception. With that said, I’m very, very pleased with our decision to skip the Flower Bowl and train up to the race. Regardless of how she runs, based on her training it’s really paying off.”

DIGITAL AGE (Mile): Hasn’t run a mile since he won his first two starts of his career, both wins. He is coming into this race with an allowance win at 1 1-16 miles and the Grade 1 Turf Classic at Churchill Downs going 1 1-8 miles when he rallied from next-to-last.

“Digital Age is an interesting horse cutting back to a mile which he’s bred to do,” Brown said. “He’s got plenty of rest, he’s coming off the fastest number of his life at Churchill. If he gets the right pace in front of him, I guess with my horses, they’re all very pace dependent.”

RAGING BULL (Mile): French-bred five-year-old son of Dark Angel has competed in 10 consecutive Grade 1 stakes winning just once, that being in the Shoemaker Mile at Santa Anita in May. He is pace dependent but did run a good second behind a slow pace in the Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland in his most recent start, which came with blinkers off.

“Because he’s pace and trip dependent he often runs out of real estate,” Brown said. “When he’s on his game and if the turf firm and he gets a clean trip and he gets a swift pace to run at his numbers are fast enough to win,” Brown said.

UNI (Mile): Defending winner of the BC Mile, she comes into the race off a victory in the Grade 1 First Lady at Keeneland, a race she won for the second straight year.

That win came after two dull efforts in the Just a Game and Fourstardave.

“She was doing really well going into the First Lady but even better exiting the race,” Brown said.

DUNBAR ROAD (Distaff): Began the year with two good-looking victories including the Grade 2 Delaware handicap in July. She underwent throat surgery shortly after that race and then finished third behind Horologist and Point of Honor in the Grade 2 Beldame.

“I know that she’s going to have her work cut out for her with these two outstanding fillies running in the race - Monomoy Girl and Swiss Skydiver - but we’re going to take our shot,” Brown said. “She’s going to have to get considerably faster to find herself in the winner’s circle, but you’re optimistic that they could do it when they’re training as well as they are going into it.”
