Breeders' Cup Handicapping
The 2016 Breeders’ Cup returns to Santa Anita for the record ninth time, with fast and firm conditions expected in Southern California for the 33rd running of the World Championships event.
Dirt speed tends to play well on high-profile days and internationally-based horses merit serious respect in turf races. “Euros,” as they’re commonly referred to in the U.S., have won races on the main track, including two editions of the $6 million Classic (Arcangues and Raven’s Pass), but they can dominate on turf, capturing 30 of 33 runnings of the 1 ½-mile Turf (which featured a dead-heat in 2033).
Past success at Santa Anita can yield to wagering profits. In the 2003 Breeders' Cup, four of the nine race winners were based at Santa Anita.
