This year’s premier thoroughbred horse racing event, the Breeders Cup 2022, is ready to begin. The event hosted by Breeders’ Cup Limited is scheduled for Friday, October 4th. Here we have the Breeders Cup live coverage, streaming details, post times, prize money, and more.
The Breeders Cup is a world championship series sanctioned under Grade I thoroughbred horse races. It was first launched in 1984 and has been hosted annually by the Breeders Cup Limited. The two-day race event is held in various sites in the United States.
At present, 14 disciplines are hosted over 2 days in the event. Marathon and Juvenile Sprint were discontinued from the event. 12-14 starters are allowed in each race based on track dimension. They are selected via 3 methods.
The 2021 edition of the cup was held in Del Mar, California. The popular American jockey Joel Rosario became the Classics’ champion with his now-retired horse Knicks Go.
This year’s event will be hosted at Keeneland in Kentucky. Because of the ongoing epidemic, the event organizers have taken additional precautions to safeguard the health of the participants and guests. Additionally, they have set up temporary seats, including five “chalets” and loge boxes. Which helped raise the venue’s capacity from 20,000 to 45,000 people.
