describe the imageThe Breeders’ Cup is known for being the “richest two days in sports.” Owners, trainers, jockeys and most importantly, the horses, will have their time to shine. The hardest part is done – they have been racing against the highest quality of competition to qualify and they have. On November 1-2, they will arrive at Santa Anita Park, ready to compete for the title of World Champion.

With 14 Championship races stretched across two days, a combined total of $27 million will be awarded to 14 new champions. With North America’s largest purse ($5 million) being handed out to the winner of the Breeders’ Cup Classic on Saturday, the crowds at Santa Anita will only multiply as the weekend goes on.

Because of the track’s close proximity to Los Angeles, a large celebrity crowd attends the Breeders’ Cup each year, making Santa Anita prime location for celeb sightings. If you haven’t caught on by now, the 2013 Breeders’ Cup is the place to be this November.
