In this Breeders’ Cup Classic rankings article, I will go through all of the 3-year-olds and rank them in order of preference. Eight sophomores have been pre-entered in the 2023 Breeders’ Cup Classic.
I have been ranking the sophomore set all year long, beginning with my “Exceptional 11” Kentucky Derby contenders, and I kept following them throughout the summer in my Beyond the Crown series. The older handicap division lacks a clear leader and there is a very good chance that a 3-year-old will win the 2023 BC Classic.
