Breeders Cup Trials In The UK

The Breeders Cup and a new UK track are forging a partnership. They will run a Breeders Cup trial card at Great Leighs where they will race over polytrack. The winners will be part of the win and you are in promotion. This is excellent news as the Breeders Cup has seen sagging European participation in the last few years. With the dollar crashing in value and the races at far flung and sultry Santa Anita the next two tears, the breeders cup needed to do something to ensure international participation.

Ascot is also getting into the breeders cup act and three new races have been designated win and you are in. The three new races, all run at one mile on the turf, will be held at the Ascot Festival are: the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (G1), sponsored by Sony, for 3-year-olds and up; the Meon Valley Stud Fillies’ Mile (G1) for 2-year-old fillies and the Juddmonte Royal Lodge (G2) for colts and geldings.
