SIMULCASTS

If your local racetrack is holding a meet on either of the Breeders’ Cup days, you can go to those tracks to watch the races and get a feel of the atmosphere on U.S. horse racing’s richest day of the year. Among the 40 thoroughbred tracks that are racing on both days in North America are Aqueduct, Churchill Downs, Gulfstream Park West, Laurel Park, Woodbine, Lone Star, Remington Park, and Golden Gate Fields.

In addition, many racetracks that aren’t holding a race meeting that day will still be open for a simulcast on the Breeders’ Cup days. In addition, thousands of venues around the country will host Breeders’ Cup day events; check your local events calendars for details.
