The Breeders’ Cup is one of the newer but well-known horse races in the field. The track used varies every year. This year, the 2018 version will take place at the most historic track in the world, Churchhill Downs, and will take place on November 2nd and 3rd. Coverage for this two-day event will be shown on NBCSN. To watch, you need to have a cable subscription and be located in the US. If you are traveling abroad, you can watch from anywhere with a VPN.

Founded in 1984, the Breeders’ Cup is a Grade 1 thoroughbred race. Attendance for the race usually sells out, but can vary based on the track it’s held at. It trails in popularity only to the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Kentucky Oaks. There are twelve different tracks the racing event has been held at, with Churchill Downs holding it the most.
This years’ race will be great. Though it is not very old, it is part of the newly formed Grand Slam. That means if a horse wins the elusive Triple Crown plus this race, they become Grand Slam winners. The only horse to win the all 4 major races was American Pharoah in 2015. If you are a race fan, you already know Bob Baffert trained that horse. That is why it will be interesting to see how his most recent horse will do. The current horse’s name is Justify.
Like many sports these days, there are other events that lead up to the final “Classic” race on Saturday. Coverage for the Breeders’ Cup will be shown on NBC Sports, but you can watch all of the online action through the NBC Sports Live Extra site. If you plan to be outside the US for the race, we would suggest using a VPN. Otherwise, you may be blocked from streaming access based on the location of your IP address. A VPN will help you by assigning an IP address in the United States.
