Breeders Cup Betting
Date: November 4 - 5, 2016
In 2011, the organization appointed Craig R. Fravel as CEO and President, a role he continues to hold as of 2016. Also in 2011, the Juvenile Sprint was added, only to be dropped after the 2012 running. Organizers had originally planned to ban raceday use of the anti-bleeding medication furosemide (Lasix) for more consistency with European standards, but reversed the decision due to concerns from horsemen and many handicappers.
From 2008 to 2014, the Breeders' Cup was held at either Churchill Downs or Santa Anita Park, both major tracks with a demonstrated record of success in hosting the event. In 2016 however, Keeneland was selected as the host track for the first time, in large part because of Lexington's position as the center of the North American thoroughbred breeding industry. Although concerns were raised over Keeneland's limited amount of permanent seating, the 2016 event was considered a success, with record Friday attendance and a sell-out on Saturday.
In 2016, Santa Anita will hold the record upon hosting the Breeders' Cup for a record ninth time. The 2017 event will be held at Del Mar for the first time.
