Post positions have been set for the 13 races on the 2015 Breeders’ Cup card, which will take place at Keeneland in Lexington on October 30-31.
One of the biggest story lines for the event is the return of Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, who will attempt to make history once again as horse racing’s first-ever dual Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup champion.
The post draws took place in two phases with positions for 11 of the 13 races being set earlier in the afternoon. University of Kentucky head basketball coach John Calipari drew the post positions for the second phase — the Breeders’ Cup Distaff and Breeders’ Cup Classic.
The Classic is scheduled for 5:35 p.m. ET on Saturday and will be televised on NBC.
