The Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint kicks off the action on Friday, with Soldier's Call the pre-race favourite for the dash.
The colt loves to run from the front and recently gained a win in the Flying Childers Stakes at Doncaster, England.
Trained by Archie Watson, the favourite is expected to be chased to the winning post by Sergei Prokofiev.
Shang Shang Shang and So Perfect also have the ability to compete, with a large field present for the inaugural running of the race.
Sergei Prokofiev is trained by Aiden O'Brien, and he fancies his horse's chances at the event, per Racing Post:
Newspaperofrecord is the hot favourite for the second race of the day, with the Juvenile Fillies Turf always producing a fine race.
The filly has shown promising form and has racing fans excited by her potential. The money is expected to pile on her as bookies adjust their odds on race day.
Newspaperofrecord's win at Belmont Park proved she is one to watch in the near future.
The O'Brien-trained Just Wonderful has also looked good, but this race is traditionally dominated by American trainers.
There should be an interesting shootout between Anthony Van Dyck and Line Of Duty in the Juvenile Turf, with little between the pair.
Yet another of O'Brien's colts, Anthony Van Dyck is expected to travel well after placing third at the Dewhurst Stakes.
The Sentient Jet Juvenile should also be an equally exciting race and a fitting end to the day, with Game Winner or Complexity the expected victors.
The race is the most valuable for two-year-olds in North America, and Game Winner is unbeaten in three starts.
Bob Baffert has won this race three times, and Game Winner is yet another colt from his training production line of future talents.
