The horses who originally drew post positions twelve through twenty will be moved to the right by one slot, and Frammento will be breaking from post twenty, instead of Far Right. Frammento will be under the guidance of jockey Corey Nakatani for the race. He is a son of Midshipman, and his dam's pedigree includes A. P. Indy and Deputy Minister. His trainer is Nick Zito. Zito states that Frammento was bred to run a distances, and the longer the race, the better he'll be.
With the inclusion of Frammento, there will now be three Hall of Fame trainers with entries in the race on Saturday: Nick Zito, Bob Baffert, and D Wayne Lukas.
