The 20th anniversary of the Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships is now history. Although there was lots of great racing with beautiful weather, there were other things at Santa Anita that day besides the horses. The backdrop of the beautiful San Gabriel mountains and the bright sunshine made it hard to get a bad photograph, whether it was during the morning workouts or the races Saturday. Here is a selection of scenic photos and celebrities who were in attendance.

Even the Seabiscuit statue in the paddock
had a Classic winner's wreath.
