D’Amato and Fanticola have another dangerous contender in the Turf Sprint with Motorious , a gelded son of Muhaarar  who was acquired in late 2021. He has thrived with D’Amato, having never finished off the board in eight starts. His 4-3-1 record since the start of 2022 included two wins, two seconds, and third at Santa Anita. Motorious earned a spot in the Turf Sprint by winning the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series Green Flash Handicap (G3T) at Del Mar.

European challengers in the Turf Sprint could include Steve and Jolene de’Lemos’ Irish-bred Live In The Dream  who won the Nunthorpe Stakes (G1) at York Aug. 25 and comes into the Breeders’ Cup off a fourth in the 5 1/2-furlong Woodford Stakes (G2T) at Keeneland Oct. 7. The gelded son of Prince of Lir  is trained by Adam West.
