Breeders' Cup World Championships Entries

Updated: 10/31/2016

This year, the Breeders' Cup will again have a total of 13 races spread over two days of racing with $26.5 million in purse money on the line. Friday November 4th will have four races headlined by the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Distaff, run for several years as the Ladies Classic, worth $2 million. Saturday November 5th will have nine races headlined by the $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) at 1 1/4 miles. For a record ninth time, the races will be held at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. Because the facility is large enough, there will be unlimited walk-up standing room admission on both race days, but tickets will be sold in advance as usual.

On October 26, 185 horses were pre-entered for the 33rd running of Breeders' Cup, including 38 foreign horses. All-time money winner California Chrome will there along with two-time Breeders' Cup winner Beholder, plus defending champions Tepin and Found.
