The Breeders Cup is this weekend at Santa Anita, I’m very excited.
After I run my 5k race tomorrow morning I might make a stop on the way home and place some bets on the Breeders Cup Classic and Turf Race that take place at the end of the day.
If you aren’t familiar with the horse racing this weekend of races is a big deal. The triple crown (Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont) that takes place in the spring is a series of races for three year olds and are the most well know races but the Breeders Cup is just as big of a deal. It’s two days of horse racing, unlike the triple crown which focuses on a single race the Breeders Cup spans ever class of horse racing with some of the biggest purses of the year, only one race has a purse less then $1 million.
