It all about the money. The Breeders’ Cup is the richest two days in sports, with $30 million paid out in purses and awards over the entire weekend. Winnings are paid out to owners, stallion nominators, and foal nominators. Owners share their winnings with their trainer and jockey on their own terms.
This series is about the best horses. They are not just hand picked, they must earn their entries. It is the elite of horses. Gun Runner won the Breeders’ Cup Classic -G1 last year. That horse is now listed as retired. (Shown in the photo.)
There will be plenty who are watching and betting on their favorites to win in the many different races. I will watch.
So come back next week to find out who won the Classic Breeders Cup this year.
Will you watch any of the races?
