We are just one week away from the Breeders’ Cup which is set for November 6-7 at the wonderful Keeneland in Kentucky.
On Friday, November 6 there are six races slated, all of which are in the Juvenile division – 2-year-olds. The highlight of the day will come in the finale, the $2 million Juvenile, a race that will set the early favorite for the 2021 Kentucky Derby.
The next day there will be nine championship races, headlined by the $6 million Longines Classic, which will feature some of the top 3-year-olds taking on older horses, in most cases for the first time.
ACES will bring you an in-depth analysis of all the BC races next week! Look for a race-by-race breakdown for Friday’s races out Friday morning, followed by analysis of the Saturday card on Saturday morning.
There will be limited spectators at the Cup this year, but NBCSN and NBC network coverage will feature a live streaming multi-cast at www.breederscup.com, with up to 15 cameras for a new viewing experience.
One of the new innovations will be a “Contenders Cam,” that will allow views to select which horse they want to follow from the time they arrive in the paddock until they enter the starting gate!
There will also be up to two Jockey Cams for each race, providing a unique horseback view.
