Breeders' Cup Countdown
Less than thirty days until the champions of the past return to Santa Anita for the 2014 Breeders' Cup Thoroughbred Championships and we can't wait. This will be the third year in a row that the Breeders Cup will be held at Santa Anita in Los Angeles. If you haven't had a chance to visit Santa Anita you need to put it on your bucket list because it's a beauty!
By now you've probably heard that the 2015 Breeders' Cup will be held at Keeneland and it's about time. If you're a new horse racing fan then you probably wouldn't know why it's never been held there. And you may not evern be aware that some tracks run on synthetic surfaces made famous by tracks in Europe. Keeneland was one of the American racetracks that installed a synthetic surface called Polytrack.
Synthetic tracks were supposed to be a safer surface for horses and jockeys to race over but the numbers don't support the claim and Keeneland, like Santa Anita, Del Mar and others, has decided to make the switch back to dirt which means they'll get the Breeders Cup in 2015.
