Breeders Cup

The Breeders Cup began in April of 1982 and since then has developed into one of the most influential and prestigious thoroughbred horse racing events in the world. The Breeders’ Cup World Championships has widespread support from owners, breeders, race tracks, and the millions of horse racing fans around the world.

The inaugural running of the event happened over 27 years ago and since then the race is the established end of the season championship race for thoroughbred horses. The Breeders Cup began as a seven race, $10 million a day event and is now a 15 race $26 million event that is held over the course of two days. The purse for the event is funded by the Worldwide Nomination that comes from the thoroughbred breeders.

Horses are able to earn their spot in the championship event through a series of 68 stake races that are held around the world. The Breeders Cup is held at a different venue every year. The 2010 Breeders’ Cup was held at Churchill Downs and sold over $11 million in tickets for the two-day extravaganza of horse racing. The race ran over the course of two days only for the 4th consecutive year. This was also the first year that the Breeders Cup was finished underneath the lights.

The race is being held at Churchill Downs again this year, and the event will take place the weekend of November 4th and 5th. Last year the event saw nine hours of domestic television coverage on both ABC and ESPN. There were over 130 countries worldwide that saw the event take place through the television coverage that was offered. Roughly £100 million was returned to fans as winning wagers at betting locations throughout the world, which made it one of the biggest wagering payouts in history.
