Breeders Cup 2015

Baffert Loves the Breeders' Cup

Bob Baffert
It’s been nearly three decades since Bob Baffert had a vision that led him to become one of the leading Thoroughbred trainers of his generation.

“The Breeders’ Cup is what got me to switch from Quarter Horses to Thoroughbreds,” said Santa Anita’s 11-time training champion, who sends out probable favorite Game On Dude in this year’s $5 million Classic at The Great Race Place on Nov. 2.

“I watched the first Breeders’ Cup at Hollywood Park (in 1984) on television, and I thought, ‘Man, I’d like that. I could do that.”

And do that he did. The 60-year-old Hall of Fame trainer not only has won the Kentucky Derby three times, he has eight Breeders’ Cup wins on his extensive resume, and hopes to add more when the 30th Breeders’ Cup World Championships are run at Santa Anita Nov. 1 and 2.
