The two day spectacle known as the 2016 Breeders’ Cup World Championships will be hosted by Santa Anita for the ninth time in history. This renowned facility is located in Arcadia, California and highly prized for its beautiful weather, breath taking view of the San Gabriel Mountains, and location near Hollywood. This year, the 2016 Breeders’ Cup will run on November 4th and 5th, with over $25 million in purse winnings up for grabs.
The Breeders’ Cup marquee event will be the Breeders’ Cup Classic, which offers a $6 million purse and ranks as the highest paying race of the entire two-day meet. The Longines Turf boasts a $4 million purse as the event holds 13 total races offering purses of $1 million or more.
As has been the case for many years, entry into each of the 2016 Breeders’ Cup races will be determined by a nomination subscription process. Performances in challenge races and other events will help decide the field, and you can bet that the 2016 Breeders’ Cup will once again draw top tier talent.
History was made in 2015 thanks to American Pharaoh, who won the first Triple Crown in 37 years and a first ever Grand Slam. Can California Chrome join the ranks of Wild Again, Alysheba, A.P. Indy, Tiznow and Zenyatta?
There will be plenty of opportunity to show your support for your top picks as the event always proves successful in betting and action. For example there is a fun, exclusive, wager introduced a few years ago for choosing the Breeders’ Cup Distaff Champion and the Breeders’ Cup Classic Champion on a single ticket. For those who like competition, the Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge is another unique opportunity where you compete against other players to win cash prizes.
The Breeders’ Cup action will continue in California for 2017. The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club will receive the honor of hosting the Breeders’ Cup World Championships on their warm shores, so start planning now.
