Trainer Bob Baffert appears to have another standout 2-year-old in his barn after Massive Drama drew away from favored Into Mischief mid-stretch for a 1 3/4-length win in the $109,200 Hollywood Prevue Stakes (gr. III).
The Todd Pletcher-trained A.P. Arrow survived a cavalry charge at the head of the lane, and a stretch duel with Fred Bradley’s Brass Hat to win the $554,000 Clark Handicap (gr. II) at Churchill Downs on Nov. 23.

Ridden by Calvin Borel, Kettleoneup was last along the rail throughout the backstretch, quietly gained ground around the final turn and then burst to the lead at the top of the lane, pulling away for a no-doubt-about-it 3 ¾-length victory in the Falls City.
