In a move expected for weeks, the Breeders’ Cup is returning to Southern California twice in the next three years. Santa Anita will host the 2019 series of championship races and Del Mar will get a return visit by hosting the 2021 Breeders’ Cup. It will be at Keeneland in Lexington, Ky., in 2020.
The announcement will come Friday in a series of orchestrated news announcements at each of the three tracks. Santa Anita will make its announcement in the morning, Keeneland in mid-afternoon in Kentucky and Del Mar in mid-afternoon at the seaside track. Craig Fravel, president and chief executive of the Breeders’ Cup, will be at Santa Anita and Del Mar. For more on this story, please go to LATimes.com.
