GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (Wednesday, October 28, 2015) – The 32nd Breeders’ Cup World Thoroughbred Championships, horse racing’s greatest international spectacle, will be simulcast live from Keeneland on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31. This is the first time the Breeders’ Cup has been held at the National Historical Landmark racetrack, which is in Lexington, KY.

Thirteen championship races cumulatively worth a record $24.5 million will culminate with the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic which, for the first time in history, will feature a Triple Crown winning Champion, American Pharoah. In what is to be the final race of his career he will attempt to complete horse racing's first ever Grand Slam by winning the Classic Saturday. With his Triple Crown achievement American Pharoah proved himself one of the sports all time greats. Winning the Classic would add to his legacy something no other Thoroughbred race horse has ever done. Make plans to join us for the best of the best in Thoroughbred racing this weekend. It just doesn’t get any better than this!
