The Breeders' Cup has added two Grade 1 races on Saturday in England to its "win and you're in" lineup, making them the last two qualifiers for the Nov. 5 and 6 championships at Del Mar.

Under a new partnership agreement with Qatar Racing, the winner of the Group 1 British Champion Stakes will earn an automatic, fees-paid berth in the Breeders' Cup Turf, according to a news release. The Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (G1) on the undercard will be a qualifier for the Breeders' Cup Mile.

The two races will take place on the British Champions Day card Saturday at Ascot Racecourse.
