Breeders' Cup Turf News & Horse Racing Updates

Breeders' Cup Turf

At the 2005 Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships on October 29 at Belmont Park, the definitive North American horse race will be, oddly enough, the Breeders' Cup Turf (Grade 1) - which follows racing conditions akin to the classic standard of European thoroughbred racing: 1 1/2 miles on grass at weight for age. While overseas runners have won a majority of the $2 million race, the European contingents have not exactly been dominant. Possible reasons are the Breeders' Cup racing schedule is set in late October or early November, which is beyond the European calendar for top horses, and European race horses do not adapt well to warm weather at the Florida or Southern California Breeders' Cup sites.
