Our Story

The world’s greatest have to start somewhere. And for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, that somewhere was Hollywood Park in 1984. What began as a one day, 7-race event has grown into a two-day, $35 million extravaganza attracting the best horses, trainers, and owners from around the globe. It is the culmination of the thoroughbred-racing season. In 2020, the drama of the Breeders' Cup World Championships will return “home” to Keeneland Racecourse in Lexington, KY for a second time!
