Breeders’ Cup – where and when?
The 2019 Breeders’ Cup this year takes place at the iconic Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California, across Friday, November 1 and Saturday, November 2.
The main event, the Breeders’ Cup Classic, is scheduled on the Saturday for 5.44pm local time, which is 8.44pm ET and 12.44am GMT for racing fans looking to tune in from the UK.
There are nine top-class contests set to take place on Breeders’ Cup Saturday, with the grand finale being the $6 million Classic run as the final race of the day.
A 1 and 1/4 miles long race on dirt with a field of up to 14 horses, while the the Kentucky Derby may be more widely known among casual racing fans, the Breeders’ Cup Classic is considered by seasoned punters as the premier thoroughbred horse race of the year in the States.
Trained by three-time winner Bob Baffert, this year’s favorite is McKinzie, who enters this year’s Classic as a far more experienced horse from the one which finished 12th in last year’s race. Also heavily backed is Code of Honor, following the three-year-old’s win over the much fancied Vino Rosso in the Jockey Club Gold Cup in September.
