With the Breeders' Cup Championships now expanded to 14 races over 2 days, Thursday is the last full training session and the last opportunity for most entrants to gallop over the track. Again clear skies and a view of the San Gabriel Mountains greeted participants and spectators.

Defending Classic champion and reigning Horse of the Year galloped on the main track and then schooled in the paddock under exercise rider Carlos Rosas. Rosas said, "He's a superstar. He's getting over the ground here very well. I know there's a big difference between the mornings and afternoons, but he's showing us very good signs. I don't think the (Pro-Ride) is going to be a problem at all."
