Breeders’ Cup Viewing Party

October 30, 2015 - October 31, 2015

The Clubhouse at Cal Expo’s Miller Lite Racetrack Grandstand will be hosting a Breeders’ Cup World Championship party on Saturday, October 31. For only $38 per person, horse racing fans can purchase tickets to this VIP event which includes Clubhouse admission and seating, an official racing program and breakfast and lunch buffet. Advance wagering will be available on Friday, October 30 for the Breeders’ Cup races that take place on Saturday, October 31.

Cal Expo is the only location in the Sacramento region where the public can officially place wagers on the Breeders’ Cup and be a part of the excitement with other racing enthusiasts. Live harness racing at Cal Expo’s Miller Lite Racetrack Grandstand will also take place beginning around 6:10 p.m. on Saturday.

American Pharoah, the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years, is set to race the 32nd annual Breeders’ Cup, held for the first time ever at the iconic Keeneland track. The three-year-old racing legend is one of only twelve thoroughbreds to ever become a Triple Crown winner, and the first Triple Crown winner to ever run in the Breeders’ Cup. A victory in the Breeders’ Cup Classic will mean another historical achievement for American Pharoah, claiming the first Grand Slam in racing history.

Other contenders for the 13 Breeders’ Cup races, totaling $26 million in purses, include five-year-old mare Beholder. The legend in the making turned heads after her first place win at the TVG Pacific Classic in August at Del Mar, marking it the first win for a female horse in its 25 year history. Beholder’s winning streak continued as she finished first at the Zenyatta Stakes in Santa Anita Park. Beholder’s successful 2015 resulted in a 5-for-5 and a 15-for-20 lifetime.
