Another entry from trainers John and Thady Gosden is Emily John. Emily John is a 3-year-old filly who is obviously pretty new to the racing scene with only four races in her history. However, with the hard work that her trainers invest in her, this filly may dominate the race.
The last on the list but certainly not the least, is Tuesday. She is another female power in the lineup of the 2022 Breeders Cup who Aidan P. O’Brien guides. Looking into his previous races, although short, she has the power to dominate a race full of males.
