Jackie's Warrior. Jackie's Warrior. Jackie's Warrior. Fair to say that going into the biggest race on the docket on Future Stars Day, one horse alone was the talk of the Horse Racing Betting community. Jackie's Warrior has yet to go two turns but has had about as impressive two-year-old season as a horse can have. Four wins from four including the Grade II Saratoga Special along with Grade I wins in the Hopeful and Champagne is more than enough to garner plenty of attention. He is already the Futures Markets favorite for the 2021 Kentucky Derby and a win here would have cemented that position as the Prep season gets into full swing. He went off as a 1-1 favorite in this one.

Three other horses went off shorter than 20-1 in Essential Quality (7-2) Reinvestment Risk (6-1) and Sittin On Go (8-1).

It was 41-1 Dreamer's Disease and 37-1 shot Likeable to raced out to an early lead on a very fast pace as favorite Jackie's Warrior choose to sit off the pace but coming around the final turn he made his move but it wasn't to be enough as suddenly outsider Hot Rod Charlie kicked and and took a surprise lead. A big upset was on the cards but in the final furlong Essential Quality made his move and took the lead. The second favorite under the ride of Luis Saez romped home to win the $2,000,000 Breeders' Cup Juvenile.

Jackie's Warrior melted back to fourth in what might be the most disappointing run of the day. He never dealt with the early pace and showed that stamina is a question mark going into his three-year-old season. Trainer Steve Asmussen was visibly downhearted after the race when speaking to the NBC reporter.

Hot Rod Charlie held on for second place and a huge payout for the Place and Keepmeinmind ended up third.
