The Breeders’ Cup has easily become one of the time-honored traditions in horse racing, even though the event itself is relatively young in comparison to the more venerable Triple Crown racing events.
The first Breeders’ Cup was run in 1982, organized by John Gaines. The idea: put together an amazing end-of-year horse racing event that would showoff the best breeding talent in the world.
Hollywood Park hosted the first Breeders’ Cup in 1982. Subsequent Breeders’ Cup races have been held at Churchill Downs, Santa Anita, Gulfstream, Woodbine, Belmont Park, and Arlington Park. This year’s 2011 Breeders’ Cup takes place again at Churchill Downs, which has become the most frequent location of this exciting event.
Friday is ladies day for horse racing when the top fillies and mares take to the track for purses up to $2 Million. On Saturday, the stallions take center stage, culminating in the $5 Million Breeders Cup Classic race at the end of the evening. Horses from around the USA, Europe, and Middle East will be participating.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to win big betting on the ponies!
