    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.
