Breeders' Cup

 

BreedersCup


Every major sport has its championship. The NFL has the Super Bowl. Baseball has the World Series and the NHL has the Stanley Cup. But until 1984, the sport of Thoroughbred racing didn’t have a signature year-end event to decide its champions. That fact rankled prominent Central Kentucky breeder John Gaines, and through great determination, perseverance and persuasion, he set out to change it. Gaines convinced his fellow prominent breeders that funding an unprecedented day of million dollar races that would attract the best horses, trainers and jockeys from all over the world would benefit horse racing as never before. Gaines’ dream was finally realized on November 10, 1984 at Hollywood Park when the first Breeders’ Cup was born: 7 races worth a total of $10 million and televised live to a national audience on NBC Sports.

 

It was a smash hit. Not only was it a showcase of the international racing at its highest level, but for perhaps the first time, the Thoroughbred industry pulled together in unison, with cooperation of owners, breeders, racetracks and the racing fans sending the Breeders’ Cup on an inexorable path to become one of the world’s great sporting and entertainment events.  Over its 31 year history, the Breeders’ Cup World Championships has grown into a two-day extravaganza of 13 races totaling $28 million in purses and awards covering virtually all divisions in the sport and crowning champions year after year. It’s also a lot of fun, as fans from all walks of life look forward every fall to the races, accented the signature theme of “The Best is Yet to Come.”       

 

Based in Lexington, Ky., with an office in NYC, the Breeders’ Cup administers the Breeders’ Cup World Championships and the Breeders’ Cup Challenge qualifying series, which provides automatic starting positions into the Championships races. The 2017 Breeders’ Cup World Championships, consisting of 13 grade I races and purses totaling $28 million, will be held November 3 and 4 at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in Del Mar, CA, and will be televised live by the NBC Sports Group. Breeders’ Cup press releases appear on the Breeders’ Cup Web site, www.breederscup.com. You can also follow the Breeders’ Cup on social media platforms FacebookTwitter, Instagram, Snapchat (@BreedersCup) and YouTube.

Club Hipico Santiago

 

Club Hipico NEW


Founded in 1869 as the first equestrian center in Chile, Club Hípico de Santiago was inaugurated on September 20th, 1870, holding its first racing meeting for the public. Created as a social club to promote the equestrian interests and activities of the Santiago elite, as was the tradition in Europe, Club Hípico de Santiago has sustained and enhanced horse racing for more than a century.


The racetrack has received many distinguished guests and personalities, including former President of the United States Theodore Roosevelt, Prince Henry of Prussia, Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria, Count of Savoy Humbert II, Edward VIII, Prince of Wales, Queen Elizabeth II, His Highness Felipe VI of Spain and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and many other notable foreign presidents and ambassadors.


Located on the grounds that border the “Republica” Neighborhood , one of the most sophisticated and traditional quarters of the old city, the venue is laid out from North to South, giving an impressive view of the Andes mountain range from the grandstand.


Currently, Club Hípico is home to two courses, a 2400 meter turf track (40 meters wide) and a 2100 meter dirt track (25 meters wide), creating an attractive racing program on both surfaces.


The Club’s annual calendar is composed of 86 race meetings, scheduled each Friday and Monday, with 8 special Sundays which are held to promote the family experience at the races.


Established since 1873, the well-known “Clasico El Ensayo” is the Club’s most important race of the year. It is the oldest race in Chile and the second oldest on the American continent after the Belmont Stakes.


In terms of wagering, there are numerous ways to place a bet, whether directly at the racetrack, off-track through the Teletrak Network (with several locations from Arica to Punta Arenas), by phone at Fonotrak, or online at teletrak.cl which has incentives for its users, collecting points that can be redeemed to place bets online.


Without a doubt, Club Hípico de Chile is a Santiago landmark, a venue that invites all visitors to discover its history and enjoy a nice day at the races with family and friends.

Hipodromo Chile

 

HipodromoChile


In  1904, a group of Chilean racing and equestrian enthusiasts, including breeders, owners, trainers and fans were given the task of developing a racecourse. This new racecourse, under the guidance of Don Pedro del Rio Talavera, held its first race meeting on September 19, 1904, on leased land, located in the southern part of the Trench of Aguada. It was soon decided to buy a property in the north of Santiago in an area known as La Palma, located in the   area  that is now known as Independencia. On 1 December 1905, work began on the construction of what is now Hipodromo Chile, and the first public meeting of races took place on November 15, 1906 with great success and attendance.

 

In order to give more status to its race meetings, the Board of the institution created a set of early classic races, including the Grade I  "Gran Premio Hipodromo Chile", a race that continues today and has gained international prominence. After that one there are 7 Stakes Grade I and the next one always starts in June with horses of two years old , and the circuit finishes in December with the Stakes Grade I named St Leger, which has the highest purse in Chile. These 7 Stakes Grade I include two Triple Crowns, one for Fillies and one open for Fillies and Colts. Hipodromo Chile is a sporting symbol of Independence. Its facilities are recognized and respected within the area and country, and is a major source of economic development for the more than  70,000 residents  of Independencia.


Hipodromo Chile is a recognized member of the International Federation Horseracing Authoroties (IFHA) and of the OSAF (South America Organization for Thoroughbred Development).


Hipodromo Chile has one race track and two training tracks, all dirt surfaces and races are always run counterclockwise. Races are held every Saturday and every other Thursday. Racing is staged 86 days of the year at the racecourse, the maximum amount allowed under Chilean law. Racing is held year-round from January to December and during the day and night due to the state of the art lighting  network, which allows our clients to experience the unique excitement of our entertaining and thrilling races, which are enjoyed by all the family, in the special areas that we provide for them.


On the international side Hipodromo Chile  exports  races to the United States,  Europe , Turkey  and Australia   and has organized five times  the Grade I  Latin American Stakes.


Hipodromo Chile is the race track that sells  the highest number of bets in dollars in South America.

Jockey Club del Peru (Monterrico)

 

Jockey Club Del Peru


Founded on April 4th, 1946 in Lima, The Jockey Club del Perú represents over 150 years of passion for equestrian activity through tradition and the values of the horse racing industry. The very first horse race in Perú was organized at the port of Callo on February 29, 1864. From that moment on, racing passion and the industry have expanded, initially being located at the Cancha Meiggs racetrack (1877-1902) in the La Legua district. With the growing interest in the sport, it became necessary to establish racing at a larger location. The Jockey Club of Lima then moved to the Santa Beatriz racetrack (1902-1938). Due to the sustained population growth of the city however, the location was moved to the San Felipe Farm, where the San Felipe racetrack was made and the Jockey Club del Perú was founded.


The start of the 1960’s was marked with the inauguration of the “Coloso de Surco” on December 18th, 1960, a spectacular occasion to greet the new decade, and the Monterrico racetrack was opened to the public. It remains one of the best racetracks in the region. The Recreational Center and the lighting of the track were also implemented during these years.


During the 1970’s, the quality of Latin American racing level was augmented with the emergence of top level horses such as Santorín and Flor de Loto, solidifying Perúvian horse racing’s stature  at the international level, in both speed and stamina.


The turf course, the closed-circuit television and betting machines were introduced during the 1980’s. In February 1995, racing was simulcast for the first time with transmission through satellite signal.


In the 21st century, Perúvian Horse Racing has maintained its international prestige with achievements that resonate in Latin America, clearly signaling the Jockey Club of Perú as one of the most important institutions in the country. With an increasingly modern racetrack and a multi-purpose recreation center, the Jockey Club del Perú continues to promote the values of horse racing and family.

OSAF

 

OSAF


During the last century, the increasing globalization of horseracing where new economic and social interests began to emerge, led to the need in South America to create stronger bonds with organizations related to the activity, Worldwide.


“OSAF” Organización Sudamericana de Fomento del Sangre Pura de Carrera was created in May 1958, the first regional racing association in the World. OSAF first Chairman was Dr Oswaldo Aranha, who presided OSAF for 2 years till his death in 1960. Besides his remarkable role in the regional horseracing, Aranha was a prominent Brazilian diplomat who had an outstading carreer in the United Nations.

The main objectives of the Organization are the harmonization of rules within the region in all areas related to the activity (Racing, Stud Books, breeding), ensuring the protection of welfare of horses, jockeys; to promote a fair sport; to organize and participate in conferences and international meetings; to create relationships with the major international organizations; promoting the exchange of information and develop reports of public and scientific interest.


OSAF became part of IFHA in 1975, and joined ISBC in 1979.  In 1981, in Maroñas Racecourse (Uruguay), the first edition of G.P. Latinoamericano was staged. This marked the begginning of an era of a prosperous Continental horseracing.  In 1982, the racing authorities from France, USA and Ireland created the International Cataloguing Standards which compiled the top races of 29 racing nations, and in 1998 the 4 major South American countries were included amongst the elite group of 14 in Part 1.  In 2009, OSAF began carrying out a series of actions which marked the beginning of a new period of profesionalization: OSAF Chemists and Veterinarian Committee was created, focusing on the stricter control of Forbidden Substances; followed by OSAF Handicappers Committee which set the grounds towards professional rating and race quality control.  In 2012, OSAF Board convened to sign the Constitution Minutes to obtain legal status in Argentina, updating the Bylaws by which it had been governed since 1958. The last few years have been most successful in achieving concrete progress as regards extra-regional integration, and giving shape to the new structure of OSAF, with fully-working Technical Committees.  In 2013, South American ratings were included for the first time in IFHA LWBRR list, achieving in January 2017 a historical record of 22 South American Thoroughbreds rated above 115 being included.   In 2014 Longines became OSAF main partner, supporting its major Group 1 race, now known as Longines Gran Premio Latinoamericano. In 2016 it was the first edition as an open race, featuring extra-classified and extra-regional horses. Also in 2014, the joint work of OSAF Adivsory Council and individual racing authorities accomplished the first milestone in harmonization of doping policies in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru and Uruguay: the ban of Lasix in black-type races. In June 2015 OSAF became sponsor of the 1st Pan American Conference, joining efforts towards the development of the continental industry. In October 2016, ICRAV was organized in South America for the first time (Uruguay), with the support from OSAF as main sponsor.   By the end of 2016, OSAF accomplished the goals set for its Pattern Race Committee, being black-type quality control fully operational.

OSAF is composed by the major Latin American Jockey Clubs, Racecourses from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Uruguay, Panama, Stud Books and Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners associations from these major horseracing nations and Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay and Venezuela.

Leading horse race betting tote operator in Europe and third worldwide, French company PMU is today present globally, offering cutting edge betting products on high quality races.

Founded in 1930 by horseracing associations, PMU’s mission is to finance the horse sector thanks to off-track betting.  This duty is at the core of PMU’s DNA.

Racing associations, France Galop and Le Trot, are in charge of organizing races in their own discipline: thoroughbred and jump racing for the first, trotting for the latter whilst PMU’s designs an attractive and responsible betting offer on these races, commercializes bets, calculates odds and pays out the winnings. 

In France, punters can access PMU’s offer through 13,000 points of sale, often located in cafés, online on PMU.fr, over the phone or by text message. Races are broadcast on two national TV channels, one of which is operated by PMU. 

With a €9.8bn turnover in 2016, PMU paid out €7,4bn to winning punters and €900M to the State through taxes. Like each year, it returned its whole net profit to the horse sector, amounting to €807M.

PMU has a quasi-government status as it is under the supervision of the French ministries of the Budget and of Agriculture. 

Meeting high standards of transparency, integrity and security, PMU is a trusted operator. After over 80 years of wagering innovations, it has evolved into a multi-activity leisure company with a global reach. It extended its offer in 2010 to online fixed-odds sports betting and online poker. Horse race betting remains the core of PMU’s business, and its know-how in this regard is esteemed globally. This is why the company has expanded over the world. Today it imports and exports races, data and products.

Regarding import, PMU has been offering betting on foreign races to its punters since 1997, allowing these punters to enjoy the most prestigious international races whilst supplementing the domestic race schedule. In 2016, bets wagered on imported races accounted for 9% of horse racing betting stakes.

As to export, PMU has been selling horse racing pictures and data to foreign operators, as well as its betting expertise, since the end of the 80’s. It currently holds 67 partnerships with 48 different countries, over all continents. Partners pick the races they want from PMU’s catalogue. They can choose to connect their pool with that of PMU, allowing their domestic punters to enjoy attractive odd and winnings.

Stakes wagered in common pool betting exceeded €1bn for the first time in 2016 (€1.042M). From now on, for every €100 wagered in horse betting at PMU, €11.8 come from outside of France.

PMU can also provide its common pool partners with the international races included in PMU’s program. In 2016, one third of the stakes wagered on foreign races (€801M in total) came from different countries, confirming PMU’s status as an international hub.  

Revenue generated by BtoB export increased by €30M in 2016, net margin reached 83M€ in 2016, gaining 2M€ every month.

Last but not least, PMU operates in BtoC in Belgium, Germany and Brazil through subsidiary companies.

In every country where it is present, PMU is concerned about the support and development of the horse racing sector, determined to created virtuous circles of sustainable growth for the local industries which count many jobs and contribute to green country planning.

Remington Park / Lone Star Park

 

Remington ParkLone Star Park


Remington Park

Founded by the late Edward J. DeBartolo, Remington Park opened in 1988 and immediately became the number one attraction in Oklahoma.  Purchased in 1999 by MEC, in 2010 Remington Park was sold to Global Gaming Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Chickasaw Nation. 

Remington Park now operates year around, drawing in excess of 2 million guests per year, featuring live Quarter Horse racing from March to June and live Thoroughbred racing from August to December, as well as 750 slot machines, multiple restaurant options, featured bars and deluxe areas for concerts, boxing and a wide range of entertainment activities. Since 2005 Remington Park has generated over $170 Million for Oklahoma Education and a similar amount for purses and breeder awards. Now in its 29th year, Remington Park is home to the $1 Million Heritage Place Futurity, the Grade 3, $400,000 Oklahoma Derby and the $300,000 Springboard Mile on a growing list of top-flight races.

 

Lone Star Park

Lone Star Park opened for live racing in 1997 as a partnership between horsemen, private investors and the City of Grand Prairie, Texas, located just between Dallas and Ft. Worth in a “Metroplex” of more than 6 million inhabitants .  Fueled by money from regional growth, Texas pride and a passion for horseracing older than the Alamo, Lone Star Park quickly took its place among the most recognized racetracks in the United States.  Horse of the Year Skip Away raced there opening weekend and in 2004, just seven years after its opening, Lone Star Park hosted the Breeders’ Cup—far and away the “youngest” track ever to do so.  By that time, Lone Star had also developed a consulting division which was instrumental in the reopening of the Hipodromo de las Americas, the national racetrack of Mexico, and Hipodromo Maronas, the national racetrack of Uruguay.  That division is currently completing a project at Hipodromo Monterrico, the national racetrack of Peru.

Lone Star Park was acquired by Global Gaming Solutions, a division of the Chickasaw Nation, in 2011. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2017, Lone Star Park continues to draw large crowds of enthusiastic fans for live horseracing, year around simulcasting, and special events of all types.  It is located in the heart of Grand Prairie’s Entertainment District.

JC Argentina San Isidro

 

 

The Argentinian Jockey Club is a social center founded in Buenos Aires on April 15th, 1882 at Doctor Carlos Enrique José Pellegrini’s initiative. Its primary objective was and still is both to improve competitiveness among Argentine-bred horses and to aim at the development of the turf industry all over the Argentine Republic.  With that purpose in mind, the Argentinian Stud Book was created. This is the breed registry where the breeding and pedigree of thoroughbreds foaling are recorded yearly. Its architectural magnificence, the elegance and splendor of its lounges, its fine and rich works of art collections, its unique library, made this true palace stir a legitimate national pride for Buenos Aires city.   

San Isidro Racecourse, owned by the Jockey Club, was opened on December 8th, 1935. This place takes up 148 hectares resulting in one of the most attractive racecourses all over the world. Here the best turf men,   professionals and thoroughbreds from the continent converge. It is also the cradle from where a significant amount of our horses have spread the prestige of our industry. 
It is situated in San Isidro, B. A. province.  120 racing meetings are held both on turf and dirt with uninterrupted racing.  It can hold 100.000 spectators in its 3 stands, with a covered surface area of   approximately 32,000 square meters.  It relies on a Quantum betting totalizer, 597 electronic vending machines, artificial illumination installed in 79 columns and light projectors over the stands, a closed central TV circuit with 9 cameras and 200 display monitors, a time controller in each contest through a tele timer system. Likewise, getting bets from 600 betting agencies, placed all over the country.  Its satellite station is placed in the center of the track, transmitting in C band, forecasting scanned imaging and, counting on redundant equipment.

Every December the Gran Premio Internacional Carlos Pellegrini takes place. This is the most important race in the South American Racing Calendar. Horses from all over the world take part in it.   In October, the  Gran Premio Jockey Club takes place, being the oldest race in Argentinian Racing, dating back to  1883- whereas in August the longest race in Argentine is run,  the Clásico General Pueyrredón (G3), over  3000 meters.  
 
The Jockey Club also has a training camp which takes up 94 hectares, with 5 tracks. The first one is made of turf and is 2.420 meters long by 30 meters wide; the second one is made of dirt and sand and has 2.247 meters long by 25 wide; the third one is made out of dirt and it is 2.100 by 25; the fourth and fifth, are not so long, and are made from river sand.  
 
There are 1.800 boxes distributed in 135 auxiliary buildings where most of horses that enter the racecourse races live, there is also a jockeys and apprentices’ school,  a farriers’ school,  and a Veterinary Service and Laboratory Center.

Valparaiso Sporting Club

 

Valparaiso


The leadership that exercised the city of Valparaiso was fundamental in the growth that our nation experienced in the middle of XIX century. The arrival of Europeans in its port  transformed Valparaiso into an active pole of development in several areas: social, economic, industrial, and technological: El Mercurio de Valparaiso - the World’s oldest Spanish-language newspaper still in circulation,  the first Stock Exchange, the first Fire Department, the  first  telephone Exchange of the  continent, among others things, illustrate  this phenomenon  in which sport was not absent.


Chile also owes to Valparaiso the origins of football, which was  played by  English  in various places of  the port city  and eventually gave rise to the creation of the oldest professional soccer team in South America, the Santiago Wanderers.


The English immigrants were the main drivers of horse racing,  the  longing  to  revive in these distant lands  what they enjoyed in their birthplace.


Thus, on September 8, 1864, they managed to organize the first meeting of horse racing in  Placilla, making  their  dream of  English racing in “their” "new  land true, making Valparaiso Sporting the birthplace of Latin-American horse racing activity,  and the second racetrack of the continent after Saratoga in New York.  The following year and due to the increasing success of this new activity, the Intendant of Valparaiso requested to realize in a special way during the celebration of  the National Holidays, the race meetings in the  Alejo Barrios Park, that over the years became a tradition, which along with the ramadas, that were enabled for the celebration of National Holidays, were the activity not to be missed in those years. Today the tradition of the ramadas remains  undiminished at the same place. Shortly afterwards a secretariat was opened in the traditional Cochrane Street, thus leaving the activity properly adjusted to the regulations of racing in England.


Horse racing spread like a wildfire in Chile. Our institution ordered the study of a race which was similar to the one that had started running since 1780 in England. That is how the classic Derby from Chile was born in our racetrack. It was held for the first time as a great public celebration on October 25, 1885. It nearly became the great horse racing celebration in Chile, and in the continent. A few years later, in 1895 Valparaiso Sporting created the Chilean Stud Book, laying foundations to the development, and growth of this activity.


Since its beginning it became a family celebration where both horseracing and non horseracing enthusiasts enjoy equally. Nowadays, the sole mention of it recalls the big spectacle held every first Sunday of February in our racetrack. This is where a 150 thousand people are gathered around race horses…that neither the technology nor the more than 200  betting shops  have managed to reduce in terms of attendance to our racecourse... that multicolored crowd that is the characteristic of this supreme event.


At the present time, Valparaiso Sporting has positioned the Derby as its maximum horse racing event, incorporating its big celebration to the Viña del Mar billboard, being this last one and the Festival Internacional de la Canción the most important summer events in the area.


Our institution, leader in innovation in the national horse racing industry,  has incorporated the technology into their daily shows through high definition broadcast around the country through an exclusive horse racing channel, Teletrack  TV, and through betting shops located in the main cities of our country. Similarly, our television signal is broadcasted via satellite to countries like France, The United States of America, United Kingdom, Australia, Turkey, and Brasil, to name a few.


The building of a dirt track four years ago has been vital to the growth of Valparaiso Sporting, being a luxury for the national horse racing activity, to house two tracks made of different materials: turf and dirt tracks.


On its 152nd anniversary Valparaíso Sporting  prepared in a special way for the  first time the most important  horse racing event in Latin America, the LONGINES GRAN  PREMIO LATINOAMERICANO, which was engraved with gold writing  in the history of the oldest racecourse  of Latin America.


Valparaiso Sporting...has a  great trajectory ... but  a young soul... The birthplace of Latin-American horse racing activity.
