All about the Breeders' Cup

The Breeders' Cup World Championships caps the annual racing season with the richest races in the sport, honoring the fastest sprinters, most promising two-year-olds, and the best turf horses.

The very best of the best eventually compete in the final race for the ultimate in prestige and the richest purse in horse racing: the $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic.

In keeping with its star status as the ultimate in thoroughbred horse racing, the very first Breeders Cup took place at Hollywood Park in 1984. Almost immediately, the race took on the glamour of the Oscar Awards, giving the sport a high-profile to become the hottest ticket in horse racing.

The Breeders' Cup Classic is open to horses of both sexes as are the Spring, the Mile and Turf races. The remaining four are the Juvenile, the Juvenile Fillies, Distaff and the Filly & Mare Turf for females ages three and up.

Whichever the groups of horses are in contention, it's certain that national pride is on the line each time. Intense rivalry develops in almost each successive race among owners and trainers, primarily from the U.S., England, Ireland, France, Germany, and Japan over who will claim the best horse in competition.
