The Breeders’ Cup Big Bet Battle Royale kicks off Saturday, August 1 with the $300,000 Clement Hirsch Stakes (G1) at Del Mar.
The race features a highly anticipated rematch between Grade 1 winners in 6-5 ML favorite Beholder and 3-1 second choice Warren’s Veneda. The 5-year-old mares were scheduled to face off in the Vanity H. at Santa Anita in May before Beholder was scratched with a fever.
The Clement Hirsch Stakes is the 8th race on Saturday at Del Mar, with a post time of 5:40 p.m. PT.
