Churchill Downs, which will play host to the Breeders’ Cup for the first time in seven years on November 2-3, begins its 21-day fall meet on Sunday, October 28 with its “Stars of Tomorrow I” program–a card made up exclusively of two-year-old races.

Sunday’s 11-race program for the juveniles features a pair of stakes races–the $100,000 Rags to Riches Stakes, for two-year-old fillies, and the $300,000 Spendthrift Juvenile Stallion Stakes, which is restricted to horses sired by any Spendthrift Farm-owned stallion.

George Bolton, Barry Hall, Barry Lipman, Mark Mathiesen, and Andrew Molasky’s Mother Mother and Sheffer Racing, LLC’s Take Charge Angel are the 5-2 co-favorites on the morning line for the one-mile Rags to Riches Stakes, while Jerry Durant’s B. B. Dude is the lukewarm 7-2 morning line choice in the Spendthrift Juvenile Stallion Stakes, which will be contested a seven-furlong trip on the main track.
