Breeders' Cup World Championships Contenders

Updated: 09/12/2016

This year, the Breeders' Cup will again have a total of 13 races spread over two days of racing with $24.5 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 $5 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.

Pre-entries will close on October 26 for all the races, and those horses will be the only ones who can enter. Final entries will be taken and post positions drawn on October 31.

The Breeders' Cup will be televised on NBC and NBC Sports, but the exact schedule is not yet known. Based on previous years, the schedule should be as shown below:
     Friday, November 4, 3:00-6:00pm on NBC Sports
     Saturday, November 5, 1:00-4:00 on NBC Sports
     Saturday, November 5, 4:00-6:00pm ET (Classic only) on NBC

Below is the list of races with conditions, purses, and post times for both days. The post times are not set yet so they could be changed as late as after the final entries.
