Security is a bit tighter than in past years at the Breeders' Cup World Championships, where a new approach has been implemented. The international security firm G4S was hired for this year's event, replacing Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau's Big Event Team used in past years. Ten investigators who worked at previous Breeders' Cups were independently hired from that team.
“We have a new model to handle equine security for this year, using a three-tiered approach,” Breeders' Cup officials said in a statement. “A ground force that could be deployed and assigned to runners, a midlevel investigative team experienced in equine security who would monitor those ground troops, and a top-level of racing commission investigators who have the authority to act.”
