Breeders' Cup Challenge Races
Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity, Shadwell Turf Mile & Juddmonte Spinster Headline “Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series-Presented By Lane’s End Farm And America’s Best Racing” Coverage
STAMFORD, Conn. – October 6, 2016 Final automatic qualifying positions for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships will be at stake this weekend in a pair of live NBC shows. Coverage begins Saturday at 5 p.m. ET on NBC from Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky., with the $1 million Shadwell Turf Mile and the $500,000 Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity. The $500,000 Juddmonte Spinster Stakes highlights Sunday’s live 5 p.m. ET show on NBC.
This weekend’s one-hour broadcasts are the eighth and ninth programs, respectively, in the “Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series: Win and You’re In – presented by Lane’s End Farm and America’s Best Racing,” on NBC and NBCSN, featuring 16 “Win And You’re In” races plus other major stakes on the road to the Breeders’ Cup, November 4-5 at Santa Anita Park, and televised by NBC Sports Group. Both shows will be streamed live on and the NBC Sports app. Winners of these Challenge races, which combined offer more than $10 million in purses, automatically qualify for a spot in the Breeders’ Cup.
Saturday’s show will also include coverage defending Breeders’ Cup Mile winner, Tepin, the sensational 5-year-old mare, in the one mile $400,000 Frist Lady Stakes at Keeneland; and the 1 ¼ mile, $1 million Jockey Club Gold Cup and the 1 ¼ mile, $500,000 Flower Bowl Stakes from Belmont Park in New York. The Jockey Club Gold Cup is the final “Win and You’re In” qualifier for the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic, and the Flower Bowl Stakes is a qualifier for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf.

Caulfield Stakes - Info
Winx vs. Bart in Caulfield Stakes Saturday
Winx facing just two rivals in Caulfield Stakes

Another big race, G1 $500,000 approx., Caulfield Stakes, considered the lead-up race to the Cox Plate, will feature a short field, with Winx and Black Heart Bart the likely headliners. With a 15-hour time difference between New York and Melbourne, will make it a little challenging for some to watch live. Local time for the race is 3:15 pm Saturday, so if you live in CA, race time will be 9:15 p.m. Friday, or 12:15 a.m. Saturday morning in New York.

Winners of the Caulfield Stakes join an elite group of gallopers such as, Criterion (2015), Atlantic Jewel (2013), So You Think (2010), Whobegotyou (2009), Lonhro (2002-2003), Northerly (2001), and Might And Power (1998).

Let's Go To The Races - Oct 1-2, 2016
This is a non-commercial blog - Started as a convenience to organize my race viewing


Several options to watch
Not a race, it's a monument!


With no fewer than 17 Grade or Group 1 races this weekend, including 5 at Santa Anita, 3 at Belmont Park, 1 in Japan, 1 in Australia, 7 at Chantilly for Arc weekend, it will be a challenge to even watch replays of some of these contests. Robert Kieckhefer with UPI has kindly summarized the whole ball of wax for us, and for the wrap-ups for both days I can highly recommend the Thoroughbred Daily News ( which will provide details on all the results for both the U.S. and around the world, which coverage includes great video replay links. This will be the biggest collection of Grade and Group 1 activity outside the upcoming Breeders Cup in November!

Here you find a list of all the races with links to check the cards and my printable time ordered list of races and entries for many of the contests. There will also be some TV coverage, for those with access to NBCSN, TVG, and live streaming will be available via,

First stop though is Robert Kieckhefer's column, out today for an overview.  UPI Weekend Racing Preview

Handicapping the Arc

Japan gets ready for the Arc with Makahiki
Jockey Yuichi Fukunaga :"Victory in the Arc de Triomphe is the dream of Japan and goal of the Japanese people."  Orfevre finished runner-up in both 2012 and 2013, the first defeat by unconsidered outsider Solemia producing this piece of YouTube gold. Now that's pain.

Not to be daunted though, the next challenger steps up to plate on Sunday, and according to some, Makahiki represents the country's best-ever chance of success - and considering how close the likes of El Condor Pasa, Nakayama Festa and Orfevre came, this is clearly a matter for any self-respecting punter to be considering closely.

TDN: Through Highs and Lows, Dettori endures
"I didn't really understand what had happened until I opened the door to pick up the newspapers the next morning, wearing a T-shirt and underpants, and found four cameras and 10 journalists waiting there," he says. "It was my Rhys Ifans moment, in [the film] Notting Hill. Then when I opened the papers I found I was all over the front pages. The bookmakers had lost 40 million, I was moving the stock market, there were punters making millions It was only then that I understood what I'd achieved."  Read more at source

2015:  Golden Horn, ridden by Lanfranco Dettori, took the laurels in the year’s most prestigious horse race in front of 60,000 racegoers. 

Day in History 'Magnificent Seven' Heaven Sent for Proud Frankie Dettori   "Myself, Willie Carson, Alex Russell and Sir Gordon Richards had now won six in a day. In 320 years of horse racing I was one in four." Then No. 7 happened and he sat above all the rest! Sept. 28, 1996, Frankie Dettori, ran the table at Ascot and broke a record with 7 wins in one day.

Trivia Question: 7 winners Dettori rode that day: Wall Street, Lochangel, Diffident, Mark of Esteem, Decorated Hero, Fatefully, Fujiyama Crest!
