Year after year for decades, the various horseracing events have been at the center of attraction in America for producing horse racing champions that rule the world. Therefore, there is reason enough that the sport has earned the recognition for its World Championships and the most prestigious horse racing events in the world. While the Thoroughbreds get the opportunity of raising their hooves and rule the world as champions in their own category, racing enthusiasts find new heroes that could turn their fortunes. Although the events are slated for specific times of the year, the preparations of the fans and the participants start gaining momentum from the time of declaration of the Breeders Cup pre entries. It marks the beginning of the battle for the most critical showdown in horseracing to identify the Horse of The Year.
Focus on the dirt track
The Breeders Cup is a two-day event that spread over four races on the first day and nine more on the last day. Each race declared in the pre-entries has its own share of exhilarating thrills, but it is the Breeders Cup Classic, which is the final race of the event that attracts all attention. The one and quarter-mile race on dirt track set the stage for crowning the champion that would rule the horseracing world for some time. In 2017, 187 horses were running 13 races, and it included the two top dirt track runners, Arrogant and Gun Runner that had been the top finishers in the Dubai World Cup in March 2017 with the former winning the title then and the latter doing it now.
Building strategies from the list
There is always a beginning even before the actual start, and this is perhaps the best way to describe the importance of pre-entries in the context of Breeders Cup. There were fourteen pre-entries in the Classic category that included highly regarded racehorses like West Coast and Collected besides the toppers in dirt track.
