Breeders Cup Schedule

by jason

The Breeders Cup which happens to be one of the yearly’s most popular race destinations is located at Santa Anita Race Course. If you plan on attending you need to mark off your calendar as occupied on November 2nd and 3rd. As I was mentioning, The Breeders cup is scheduled into a 2 day marathon in which on Friday the 2nd there will be six races along with another eight races the following day. There is something new this year then years past in which the Breeders Cup will start scheduling a Juvenile Sprint race into the card. Although the prize money is less than any other race this was a great addition to the cup. Considering this will give everyone sorta a heads start on what to expect from the juveniles in the following years.

Along with the quality horse racing that goes on ever year at the Breeders Cup a new tradition has been born and added unofficially to the Breeders Cup Schedule. The Zenyatta Celebration is in its 2nd annual After-Party Celebration in which will be held at Santa Anita Park’s Frontrunner restaurant. Including in the celebration they will be offering cash drinks and a buffet in which you will have the opportunity to meet racing celebrities from around the world. A majority if not all of the profit is planned to be donated to the PDJF ” Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund “. The cost of the admission is $95 and includes the buffet.

Zenyatta won some historic races of the years at the Breeders’ Cup which include the 2008 Ladies Classic and the 2009 Cup Classic. She lost in the 2010 Breeder’s Cup at Churchill Downs after getting stuck inside the rails late and was unable to catch up at the end of the finish line, she ended up getting 2nd.
