If you’re a fan of horse racing, there aren’t many events that rival the Breeders’ Cup. And though the race is held until November, it’s never too early to start thinking about getting yourself in on the action. With the Breeders’ Cup Ticket guide you can get tickets, starting at $52.
The event will be held Nov. 4 and 5 at the Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. Originally held as a one-day-only race, the Breeders’ Cup has since expanded to two full days of action. This Grade I Thoroughbred race brings a purse value between $1 million and $5 million. Two-day attendance has been more than 100,000 in the past. This is the ninth time Santa Anita has held the event. No other venue has hosted the race more.
The Breeders’ Cup began in 1984 and regularly changes venues from year to year. Jockey Mike Smith has had tremendous success at the Breeders’ Cup, having won the event 22 times. Jerry Bailey is second at 15 wins. The horse Zenyatta has earned the most money at $4,680,000.
