2015 Breeders' Cup

The 2015 Breeders' Cup World Championships was the 32nd edition of the thoroughbred horse racing season-ending premier event held on October 30 and 31 at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky. The race series, held for the first time at Keeneland, required a significant amount of preparation to transform the small, historic track into a venue capable of handling large crowds, comprising 13 championship races held over a two-day period.
The highlight of the series was the victory of American Pharoah in the Breeders' Cup Classic, becoming the first horse in history to complete the "grand slam" of the three Triple Crown races plus the Classic. In the process he set a track record at Keeneland, and hosting the Breeders' Cup for the first time broke the attendance record for the Keeneland facility.
