The Breeders’ Cup is the annual horse racing event that follows the Triple Crown races on the schedule. Beginning in 2007, the Breeders’ Cup was changed into a two-day event. In the history of the event, the Breeders’ Cup has always taken place in the United States. This year’s installment will take place at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky.
Legendary trainer Bob Baffert has three horses in the Breeders’ Cup Classic in Improbable, Authentic and Maximum Security. Shortly after the draw results were revealed on Monday, Improbable was tabbed as the early favorites with 5-2 odds to win the Breeders’ Cup. Improbable is currently on a three-race winning streak with three consecutive first place finishes at the Hollywood Gold Cup, Whitney, and Awesome Again. Baffert’s horses drew the No. 8, 9, and 10 post positions with Maximum Security being in the final spot.
