O'Neill will also saddle Best Pal winner Know More, who will be ridden by Mario Gutierrez and is owned by J. Paul Reddam. They were the rider and owner of I'll Have Another. Know More is 4-1.

Breeders' Cup Juvenile Sprint winner Hightail was made the third choice at 9-2. He is trained by D. Wayne Lukas. Hightail will be the first BC champion to run in the Jackpot.

The winner will earn $600,000 and 10 points toward a possible starting position in next year's Kentucky Derby.
