    Exhilaration, pageantry and two days of downright excitement… that’s what I call the Breeders’ Cup World Championships. Get ready to scream like never before.

    Breeders' Cup weekend is marked on my calendar every year. I grew up going to the races with my Dad and my love of the sport has only grown. The racing, the fashion, the beautiful tracks and the parties...the Breeders' Cup has it all.

    The fastest horses in the world will be coming to Santa Anita to compete in the Breeders' Cup in November. It's the richest, most exciting event each year and makes most other sporting events look, well, quaint.

    The Breeders’ Cup are two of the most special days in horse racing. It is the Super Bowl, March Madness, and World Series combined into one weekend a year. It is where all the great ones come together to compete.
