Breeders’ Cup World Championships ‘Future Stars Friday’ Handle

November 7, 2020

LEXINGTON, Ky. – All-sources handle for the 10-race program of the first day of the 37th Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Keeneland Race Course was $50,285,986 an 11% decrease from last year’s record Friday handle of $56,517,228 at Santa Anita Park.

The Future Stars Friday card featured five Breeders’ Cup races for 2-year-old horses, the third consecutive year of grouping all of the juvenile races on the same day since the event expanded to its current two-day format in 2007.

No attendance figure was reported as tickets were not available for public sale and attendance at the event was limited to participants and essential personnel only due to COVID-19 safety measures established by Breeders’ Cup and Keeneland.

On-track handle was $1,123,620. Friday’s on-track handle for the 2019 10-race card at Santa Anita was $6,340,351.
