LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Fleet Indian, unbeaten this year, goes off from the No. 7 position in the $2.2 million Breeders Cup Distaff, set for Saturday at Kentucky's Churchill Downs.

Fleet Indian has won all six of its races in 2006 and its last two tries in 2005. That record led odds makers to set the early line at 8-5 for the 5-year-old and jockey Jose Santos for the 1 1/8-mile race for fillies and mares 3 years and up.

Pine Island, with Javier Castellano up, got the No. 2 position and odds were set at 5-1. The third favorite for the Distaff is Balletto, with jockey Corey Nakatani, which drew the No. 14 -- and widest -- start position.

The rest of the field for the Distaff, with post position, horse, jockey and odds: 1, Round Pond, Edgar Prado, 15-1; 3, Healthy Addiction, Victor Espinoza, 10-1; 4, Sharp Lisa, Patrick Valenzuela, 50-1; 5, Lemons Forever, Mark Guidry, 30-1; 6, Spun Sugar, Mike Luzzi, 10-1; 8, Baghdaria, Rafael Bejarano, 30-1; 9, Pool Land, John Velazquez, 10-1; 10, Hollywood Story, David Flores, 20-1; 11, Bushfire, Alex Solis; 30-1; 12, Asi Siempre, Julien Leparoux, 15-1; and 13, Happy Ticket, Garrett Gomez, 12-1.
