One of the most prestigious horse racing events in the world is also one of the oldest. The Breeders Cup takes place in late October and early November and includes a series of races with a total purse of over $25 million. In this article, we will explore some of the past winners, speculate on which racehorses have been training for this year, and more!
In the past few years, horse racing has been gaining in popularity. This is due to a number of factors, including increased interest from rich individuals and corporations who are looking for new ways to invest their money. In addition, there have been changes in how people view animals and these horses in particular. While they were once considered work animals or even dangerous beasts, today’s racehorses are seen as highly intelligent athletes who deserve our respect and admiration. In recent years, this trend has culminated with the establishment of a major annual event: The Breeders Cup Races. These prestigious events take place every year during late October and early November at different tracks around the world (although most races take place at Churchill Downs).
The Breeders Cup is a series of races for thoroughbred horses
The Breeders Cup is a series of races for thoroughbred horses, taking place annually in late October and early November. Races are held at 19 different tracks in the US and Canada. The event was created by John R. Gaines as an offshoot of his successful event, “the World Series of horseracing”.
The first Breeders Cup race was held in 1984
The first Breeders Cup took place at Hollywood Park Racetrack on November 2, 1984 with a total purse of $4 million. Today the creators are dedicated to creating highly competitive events that are full of excitement for horse owners, trainers, jockeys and spectators alike.

In 2016, the event was hosted at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California.
Santa Anita Park is a beautiful horse racing club located in Arcadia, California. It’s home to both the 20-time Champion of the West – Californian Stakes, as well as the Grade II San Mateo County Handicap. The track opened its doors for the first time to an audience on December 26, 1926 and since then has hosted 10 World Championships for both thoroughbreds and standardbred horses. It’s also home to many other prestigious races including the Grade I Santa Anita Derby.
There are 14 races total over two days
The Breeders Cup typically runs over two days, with 14 total races. Ten of the races are stakes races, meaning that they have an economic prize. These stake races include the Sprint, Mile, Juvenile, and Derby among others. The other four “non-stakes” events involve a different type of competition for a non-economic prize. These events take place on a Saturday and offer a variety of challenges to horse owners and trainers who want to see how an animal performs in other racing environments.

Some notable winners from previous years include:
American Pharoah is the most recent winner of The Breeder’s Cup. His victory in 2015 was so historic that it became one of only 11 horses to ever win the Breeder’s Cup Classic as well as the first horse to do so.
Normally, English-trained horses are favored to win at Churchill Downs but this year there are three top contenders with American Pharoah, Frosted, and Lani. Frosted is a three-year old colt who has won four out of his five races with two Grade I Stakes – the King Edward Stakes and Canada’s Queen’s Plate.
Lani is a four-year old filly who owns the distinction of being an undefeated champion with six Grade 1 stakes under her belt, including the Santa Margarita Invitational and the Hollywood Oaks. Lani has a total of nine wins and 5 second place finishes in 20 starts. Her last win came in the 2016 edition of the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile Fillies making her a favourite to win this year’s race as well.
