Breeders' Cup World Championships Entries

Updated: 10/29/2012

Final entries were taken and post positions drawn on Monday October 29 for the 15 Breeders' Cup Championship races to be held on November 2 and 3. There are still 13 Breeders' Cup horses stranded on the east coast by Hurricane Sandy, including all of trainer Todd Pletcher's entries, but they are expected to make it here in time for the race. Since the rules require them to be on the grounds 72 hours in advance, Breeders' Cup is making special arrangements for them to be closely supervised where they are until they can make it to Santa Anita.

Pre-entries were released on Wednesday, October 24, There are a total of 203 Entries, with 180 individual horses where some have pre-entered in two races. There are eight previous Breeders' Cup winners who are returning this year: Royal Delta, My Miss Aurelia, Awesome Feather, Amazombie, Musical Romance, St Nicholas Abbey, California Flag, and Eldaafer. These are the final lists of horses and anyone not pre-entred will not be able to run in the races. Free past performances for all the races are now available here.

This year, the Breeders' Cup will have a total of 15 races spread over two days of racing with $26 million in purse money on the line. Friday November 2nd will have six races including the Juvenile Sprint, the Marathon, and most of the distaff divisions, headlined by the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Ladies Classic (formerly the Breeders' Cup Distaff) worth $2 million. Saturday November 3rd will have nine races headlined by the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) at 1 1/4 miles.

The Breeders' Cup will be televised on NBC and NBC Sports with the schedule so far being:
     Friday, November 4, 4:00-7:00 ET on NBC Sports
     Saturday, November 5, 3:30-8:00 ET on NBC Sports
