Breeders' Cup Classic last race on Nov. 4 card


Post time for the Breeders’ Cup Classic on Nov. 4 at Del Mar near San Diego will be 5:35 p.m. Pacific, or 8:35 p.m. Eastern, the Breeders’ Cup announced on Wednesday.

The announcement included all of the post times for the 13 Breeders’ Cup races on Nov. 3-4, while leaving out the specific race order. The exceptions were the Classic, the last race on the card on Saturday, and the Distaff, the second-to-last race on the Friday card. The Distaff is scheduled for 4:35 p.m. Pacific.

The Saturday card, which will include nine Breeders’ Cup races, will start at 10:10 a.m. Pacific, with the first Breeders’ Cup race scheduled for noon, following three non-Breeders’ Cup races. The Friday card, which will feature four Breeders’ Cup races, will begin at 11:25 a.m. Pacific, with the first Breeders’ Cup race scheduled for 2:25 p.m., following five non-Breeders’ Cup races.

Breeders’ Cup does not announce the specific race order or the wagering menu until entries are taken, in order to place races in spots that the organization prefers for wagering purposes. This year, the specific race order and wagering menu for both days will be announced on Oct. 25, 10 days before the event begins.
