The first Breeders’ Cup was held at historic Hollywood Park in 1984, in 2007 the series expanded to two full days of racing.
Each race is limited to a maximum of 14 contenders but the dirt mile which allows 12, while the contender selection criteria ensures level competition with challenge races and a point system.
The event rotates to different tracks each year, mostly among Santa Anita, Del Mar, Keeneland and Churchill.
Every year, the host track conducts a highly ceremonious, post position draw to assign the contenders who will start in each race.
