The 2020 Breeders’ Cup Challenge and World Championships are taking place this November 6 and 7, 2020, at Keeneland Racetrack. This horse racing competition will feature eight fixtures with over million-dollar prizes at stake. The two-day racing game is expected to hold no spectators, and betting games are settling online.
One of the most anticipated fixtures happening at this event is the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Turf. It is a Grade 1 Stakes event where entrants need to hustle at one ½ turf track distance. Also, it requires three to four-year-old thoroughbreds to enter with weight qualifications depending on the horse’s origin. The Breeders’ Cup Turf will award a total purse prize of $6 million.
Hence, as the Keeneland racecourse starts to get its shape for the grand horse racing show in a few weeks, let’s see the probable horses who will grapple at Breeders’ Cup Turf. These colts are big placers in many stakes races this year, and make sure to follow them to pick your bets in the upcoming Breeders Cup betting.
