Three Horses Out of Breeders' Cup; Juvenile Sprint Turf Contenders

Well, the entry attrition has already begun for the Breeders' Cup Championship Races on 2 and 3 November.
  In the Juvenile Turf Sprint, to be run on Friday, Its Gonna Hurt, who won a "Win And You're In" race, has a suspensory ligament that keeps filling up; he has been withdrawn.  That means that Chelsea Cloisters is now on the entry list.
  For Saturday's races, Sharp Samurai is out of the Mile Turf race with an infected throat, so Mustashry is now on the entry list.  And in the Filly & Mare Sprint, Dream Tree is out with an entrapped epiglottis;  the first two names on the "wait list" are entered in other races, so Dream Tree's scratch opens the way for either  (a) Mopotism,  (b) Happy Like a Fool, or (c) Dream Pauline...  We'll know which horse on Monday, the final entry and post draw day.

In the meantime, here are the current contenders (plus three on the wait list, because So Perfect is an entry in the following race, also) for the Juvenile Sprint Turf - the entries are shown alphabetically, then the last three on the wait list...
