Santa Anita to host Breeders’ Cup for 11th time


ARCADIA, Calif. — The Breeders’ Cup will return to Santa Anita for a record 11th time in 2023.

The world championships will mark their 40th anniversary next year on Nov. 3 and 4 at the Southern California track.

Santa Anita last hosted in 2019 when a wagering record of over $175 million was set. That year’s final race was marred by the death of Mongolian Groom in the Classic. He was euthanized after suffering a broken bone during the race. The accident came after dozens of horse deaths at the track in less than a year. As a result, major safety overhauls were completed and the track’s safety record improved.

The 2016 event at Santa Anita set the event’s attendance record with 118,484 fans over two days.

This year’s Breeders’ Cup will be at Keeneland in Kentucky on Nov. 4-5.
