According to a report from the Louisville courier newspaperBreeders Cup president Craig Fravel said his organization remains committed to organizing this year's championships at Santa Anita Park, but is "evaluating contingency plans" amid turbulent times to compete in the south. Of California.
Santa Anita is prepared to host the Breeders' Cup for the tenth time in a row on November 1 and 2, but only if the track can surpbad its range of equine deaths above the average that has rejected talks on medications and bads, together with a request to suspend the races by Senator Dianne Feinstein.
Santa Anita is competing with 23 horses that die as a result of training and racing injuries since December 26, when their current encounter began.
"The drum noise is very loud," Joe Harper, president of Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, told the Courier-Journal. "But I do believe they will end up with the Breeders' Cup there, these things have to go their course."
If now, however, a Churchill Downs spokesman said the runway could intervene on short notice. The Breeders 'Cup was successfully held under Twin Spiers last November for the ninth time, and the home of the Kentucky Derby is still the record holder for the badistance and management of the one-day Breeders' Cup.
The story appeared before a great afternoon of racing in California led by Santa Anita Derby (G1) and Santa Anita Handicap (G1).
The Breeders' Cup has announced other future sites with Keeneland and Del Mar to organize their second championship weekends in 2020 and 2021, respectfully.
