Dialed In will have three runners in this year's Breeders' Cup on Nov. 2-3 at Churchill Downs, led by his Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) contender Gunnevera. Chalon, part of Saturday's Filly and Mare Sprint (G1) field, and Friday's Juvenile Turf Sprint contender Pocket Dynamo round out the Dialed In trio.

Gunnevera, who has earned over $3 million, looks to pad that bankroll in the $6 million Classic, the final race on Saturday, at 5:44 p.m. ET. Gunnevera's lone start at Churchill was in the 2017 Kentucky Derby (G1), when he had a horrible trip yet still would up in seventh of 20 runners.  The Fountain of Youth S. (G2) winner has had G1 placings in the Travers S., Pegasus World Cup and Woodward S. since his Derby run.

Trained by Antonio Sano for Margoth, Gunnevera will get the services of Irad Ortiz for the first time on Saturday when he breaks from post four in the 14 horse field that will travel the Derby distance of 1 1/4-miles. 

The Filly and Mare Sprint is the first Breeders' Cup race on Saturday at noon. Chalon drew post six of 14 in the seven-furlong affair. Chalon, owned by Lael Stables, has been ultra-consistent her entire career, finishing first or second in nine of 12 starts. She has two stakes wins and a pair of graded stakes placings in four starts this year. She'll be ridden by Javier Castellano on Saturday.

Friday's Juvenile Turf Sprint at 3:21 p.m. kicks off the Breeders' Cup card. Pocket Dynamo was unfortunate to draw the outside post in the field of 12 for trainer Robert Cowell and jockey Joel Rosario. Based in Europe, Pocket Dynamo was beaten just a nose in the Norfolk S. (G2) at the prestigious Ascot meet in June.
