The Breeders’ Cup is coming back to Keeneland.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Breeders’ Cup will take place at Santa Anita in 2019, Keeneland in 2020, and Del Mar in 2021. This year’s event will take place at Churchill Downs on the first weekend in November. An announcement is expected at Keeneland tomorrow afternoon.

The Breeders’ Cup has only been held at Keeneland once, in 2015, when American Pharoah capped off his amazing career with a wire-to-wire victory. Initially, there were concerns Keeneland couldn’t handle the crowd, but the event was a huge success, with record attendance on Friday and a sell-out on Saturday.

If you don’t live in Lexington, book your hotel rooms now…
