Two days of world fame and fortune

The world’s greatest have to start somewhere. And for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, that somewhere was Hollywood Park in 1984. What began as a one day, 7-race event has grown into a two-day, $28 million extravaganza attracting the best horses, trainers, and owners from across the globe. It has also become the unofficial end and culmination of the thoroughbred-racing season, often with the Breeders’ Cup Classic being the deciding factor in Horse of the Year. And while these two days have seen legends born, history made, and fortunes won, the greatest part is that the best is still yet to come.

A special three-year charitable program, Champions for Charity, was launched in 2015 in partnership with Maker's Mark. This program will support both Equine charities as well as local charities in the markets the Breeders’ Cup World Championships are hosted. Each year a new Limited-Edition Commemorative Maker’s Mark Bottle will be released featuring a Breeders’ Cup Champion. In 2017, Breeders’ Cup and Maker’s Mark will release the beneficiary for the last bottle in the collection featuring Cigar.

The 2016 bottle featured Zenyatta and the beneficiary was Old Friends. The 2015 bottles featured A.P. Indy, Lure, and Personal Ensign and the beneficiaries included Grayson Jockey Club Foundation, Kentucky Horse Park Foundation, The Lexington Cancer Foundation, The Race for Education, Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, and the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center Foundation.
