TVG, America's horse racing network, will offer fans and bettors a weekend full of prep races for the Breeders' Cup World Championships which are scheduled to be held at Santa Anita in Arcadia, California on November 1 and 2. This weekend's coverage will include the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (G1) from Longchamp as well as opening weekend from one of America's premier race meets as Keeneland kicks off its Fall Meet on Friday.
Sunday's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (G1) is a “Win and You're In” race as part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge Series and the winner will earn an automatic spot in the $4 million Longines Breeders Cup Turf. The race will feature international superstar mare Enable, the winner of the 2018 Breeders' Cup Turf, who will be trying to make history and win her third consecutive Arc. Post time for the Arc is 10:05 AM ET/7:05 AM PT.
TVG will also be on track at Keeneland with full coverage of the Fall Meet which runs through Sunday, October 26th. The coverage will include interviews, behind-the-scenes features and expert analysis from Christina Blacker, Gabby Gaudet and Scott Hazelton as well as featuring several key “Win and You're In” races from Keeneland as part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge Series. On Opening Day, the track will host two Breeders' Cup prep races – the Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix Stakes (G2) which earns the winner an automatic berth into the $2 million Breeders' Cup Sprint and the Darley Alcibiades Stakes (G1) which qualifies the winner for the $2 million Juvenile Fillies (G1).
In July, FanDuel Group announced a comprehensive multi-year sponsorship agreement with the Breeders' Cup, one of Thoroughbred racing's most prestigious international events to make TVG and FanDuel the official wagering partners of the Breeders' Cup World Championships. Keeneland will be the site of the Breeders' Cup in 2020.
