The Breeders' Cup board of directors is set to meet Thursday in Lexington, Ky., to talk about a proposal to change the event's schedule, the Daily Racing Form reports.
DRF says the plan being supported by several board members “would move four races, including the Classic and the two dirt races for juveniles, to a card in December, perhaps four or five weeks after another 11 Breeders' Cup races are held on the first Saturday in November…”
The proposals also include the idea of adding a race restricted to 3-year-olds to a 10-race card on the first Saturday in November. The aforementioned races that would move to December would be held at Gulfstream Park, under the same plan.
