Breeders’ Cup is pleased to announce that Daily Racing Form will present a handicapping event from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Louisville Marriot Downtown as part of the Breeders’ Cup Festival.
Tickets include dinner, open bar and a handicapping seminar hosted by NBC racing analyst Randy Moss, Daily Racing Form's National Handicapper Mike Watchmaker and Daily Racing Form's head clocker Mike Welsch. The trio will handicap Breeders' Cup Friday and Saturday cards. Tickets are available at www.charitableimpactgroup.org for $75.
"Daily Racing Form is an engaged sponsor of the Breeders' Cup, and this handicapping event at the designated fan hotel is a must-attend for racing fans that want to be profitable," said Don Ryan, CEO of Daily Racing Form. "Daily Racing Form provides the best handicapping tools for horseplayers, and our handicappers will help players identify some solid wagering opportunities.”
An incredible dream racing trip to the 2019 Breeders’ Cup and Melbourne Cup has been donated by Breeders’ Cup and Sky Racing. The trip includes round-trip airfare from anywhere in the continental United States to Los Angeles for the 2019 Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita Park. After the running of the Breeders' Cup Classic, two lucky race fans will fly through the night to Melbourne, Australia. After a day of rest, they will attend the Melbourne Cup and all the festivities surrounding a race so important that it is a national holiday in Australia.
"We are thrilled to contribute the Australian leg of this trip to the Melbourne Cup," said David Haslett, CEO of Sky Racing World. "This will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we encourage all race fans to check out the exciting racing that Australia has to offer via simulcasting.”
Live auction items also include a private meet and greet donated by Coolmore for 10 people with Triple Crown-winning Justify and American Pharoah, a six-day day safari to South Africa and VIP paddock enclosure tickets for Breeders' Cup Friday and Saturday.
The Charitable Impact Group, based in Lexington, Ky., is handling the auctions, and all proceeds will benefit racing-related charities, including the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund, New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program, Thoroughbred Charities of America, and Breeders’ Cup Charities.
