Breeder’s Cup Challenge: Who Will Win This Weekend’s Gold Cup at Santa Anita?

Laffit Pincay III On Who Will Join American Pharoah In November’s Breeder’s Cup

Breeder's Cup
Laffit Pincay III of NBC Sports joined Jenna Laine today to talk about this weekend’s Gold Cup at Santa Anita and a look ahead to the Breeder’s Cup.

Horse racing has gotten a lot more attention after what we saw with the Triple Crown from American Pharoah. While this is all very important because he’s going to keep racing. You’ve got some potential challengers that are going to be right here on Saturday:

“That’s the story. American Pharoah, his year end goal before goes off to stud in a pasture in Kentucky, is to run in the Breeder’s Cup Classic. It’s America’s richest race, it’s typically where horse of the year is decided. Safe to say horse of the year is probably already decided with the Triple Crown, but that’s where he’ll be running at the end of the season. Tomorrow’s race, the Sant Anita Gold Cup, the winner earns an automatic berth into the Breeder’s Cup Classic. So you have a chance to see what his competition will look like come November in Lexington.”
