More Than Ready, who has sired three previous Breeders' Cup winners, has three excellent chances to add to that total over the Nov. 3-4 Breeders' Cup weekend.

The WinStar stallion's first opportunity comes in the Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) with Rushing Fall, the first Breeders' Cup race on Friday's card. The bay filly, who drew post 12 in the 14-horse field, is the 7-2 morning line favorite after looking ultra-sharp in both her maiden win at Belmont and an eye-catching stretch run to take the Jessamine S. (G3) at Keeneland on Oct. 11.
The well-bred sister to a pair of stakes horses was highly sought at auction, when she brought a winning bid of $320,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Yearling sale from her owner e Five Racing Thoroughbreds.
Post time on Friday is 5:25 p.m. ET.
Also on Friday, Catholic Boy rates a big shot in the $1 million Juvenile Turf, which runs at 6:50 p.m. ET.
Like Rushing Fall, Catholic Boy is also undefeated in two starts after a debut maiden win and a one-length score in the With Anticipation S. (G3) at Saratoga. The bay colt is owned by Robert LaPenta and bred by Fred Hertrich III and John Fielding.
Trained by Jonathon Thomas, Catholic Boy drew post 4 in the 14-horse field.
Moving to Saturday, More Than Ready has another prominent player in Roy H, who is one of the top choices among the 10 runners in the $1.5 million Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1). The 5-year-old has been nearly perfect this year under the care of Peter Miller, winning four of five starts, with one second. His victories include wins in the Santa Anita Sprint Championship (G1) and True North S. (G2), where he ran a 111 Beyer Speed Figure.
Bred by Ramona Bass, Roy H's dam was a multiple graded stakes-winning sprinter and has produced four winners to date.
The Sprint runs at 5:37 p.m. ET on Saturday, with Roy H in post 8.
More Than Ready, one of the world's preeminent sires with over 80 graded stakes winners, is the sire of Breeders' Cup winners More Than Real (2010 Juvenile Fillies Turf), Pluck (2010 Juvenile Turf), and Regally Ready (2011 Turf Sprint).
