Breeders' Cup History

The Breeders' Cup is a two-day series of racing which features some of the best thoroughbreds from all around the world.

Held in November, the Breeders' Cup is targeted by the biggest stables and the Breeders' Cup Classic and Breeders' Cup Turf excite fans and punters alike.

Horses from all different backgrounds line up for the big prize money and it's a true celebration of the thoroughbred, which is what the founders of the Breeders' Cup were wanting.

In 1982, a group of thoroughbred breeders from Kentucky devised a plan to see which horse was the best in the world. 

This culminated in the Breeders' Cup being born and the hopes of racing in the US to be a global event was achieved.

The first running was in 1984 where there were seven premier races on the card and it has now evolved into a 13-race card over two days.

The destination changes from year-to-year but the likes of Del Mar, Churchill Downs and Santa Anita feature prominently.

With the lowest stake on offer being $1 million, the racing on offer for punters to bet on is top-quality and that's why it's quickly becoming one of the biggest racing festivals in the world.
