Breeders' Cup 2017

Texans at the Breeders' Cup

For two days in Kentucky, Nov. 5-6, many of the best horses in the world will line up to compete for $25.5 million, and so naturally several Texans will be on hand. The two leading trainers in the country, Texas native Todd Pletcher and Arlington resident Steve Asmussen, will be well represented, of course, in the Breeders’ Cup. But the list of Texans won’t stop there.


Bret Calhoun, who topped the standings at Lone Star Park during the recent thoroughbred meeting, will saddle two Breeders’ Cup horses: Dubai Majesty, who’s owned in partnership by Bill Martin of Dallas, in the $1 million Filly & Mare Sprint; and Chamberlain Bridge, who’s owned by Carl Moore of Fort Worth, in the $1 million Turf Sprint. Both horses look like contenders.
