This year’s Breeders’ Cup World Championships, consisting of 13 grade 1 races and $28 million in purses and awards, will take place Nov. 4-5 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia Calif., and will be televised live on NBC and NBCSN.
The Rood & Riddle Breeders’ Cup Post-Position Draw will be Monday, Oct. 31 at Santa Anita. The draw will be conducted in two phases. The first phase, drawing of 11 Breeders’ Cup World Championships races, will be at 1 p.m. (PT) at Top ’O The Stretch.
The Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff and the Breeders’ Cup Classic will be drawn later that afternoon in the Chandelier Room at the racetrack.
“As leaders in the equine medical field, we are very pleased that Rood & Riddle is back with us as an official partner and sponsor of the Post-Position Draw,” says Craig Fravel, Breeders’ Cup president and CEO.
It will be the second year that the equine hospital will hold this role with the Breeders’ Cup.
“Rood & Riddle is very pleased to once again partner with Breeders’ Cup as the title sponsor of the post-position draw and as official equine hospital of the Breeders’ Cup Championships,” says Tom Riddle, co-founder of Rood & Riddle. “We feel that the partnership we have with Breeders’ Cup is very appropriate: a world class veterinary practice supporting the world championships of Thoroughbred racing.”
