04 Nov 2020 Breeders’ Cup Distaff + Classic Connections
The 37th running of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships is here, a culmination of a year of racing that was at once irregular and totally exciting. COVID-19 changed everything, but the sport proved resilient, innovative and relevant. We look ahead to this weekend with a little sorrow that we won’t be in person at our home track Keeneland – but also grateful and ready for a weekend of top notch racing!
The two days of racing will be broadcast from NBC Sports & TVG, and events and activities will be streamed from various Breeders’ Cup and Keeneland streaming and social platforms. For a complete schedule & where to watch, check out the Breeders’ Cup site here.
Tune in this Friday and Saturday, November 6 & 7 for 14 races – the fields are set, full of superstar athletes competing for $31 million in purses.
The connections to Horse Country in these races are many, and here we’re taking a look at the fields for the Longines Distaff and Longines Classic. For the complete list of contenders in all races, click here.
