Triple Crown champion American Pharoah, Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner Golden Horn and the brilliant mare Beholder top the 200 horses pre-entered Wednesday for the 13 Breeders' Cup races to be run Oct. 30-31 at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky.

American Pharoah and Beholder lead a standout field of 10 for the $5-million Classic, which also drew Travers winner Keen Ice, the only horse to defeat Pharoah this year.

Thirty-two runners from overseas were pre-entered, including last year's Mile winner, France-based Karakontie. New York-based Chad Brown made 14 horses eligible, with Ireland's Coolmore Group next with 10. Post positions will be drawn Monday.
