Three new "Win and You're In" races in Europe


Breeders' Cup has added three group stakes races in Europe to its "Win and You're In" series that gives winners an automatic berth to one of its 14 year-end races, the organization announced on Tuesday.

The addition of the three races brings the total number of "Win and You're In" races to 65. The three races are the Group 1 Prix Haras de Fresnay-Le-Buffard Jacques le Marois, scheduled for Aug. 15 at Deauville in France, with a qualifying spot in the Breeders' Cup Mile; the Group 1 Vincent O'Brien National Stakes on Sept. 11 at the Curragh in Ireland, for a spot in the Juvenile Turf; and the Group 2 Qatar Prix Niel on Sept. 12 at Longchamp in Paris, for a spot in the Turf.

This is the fourth year in which Breeders' Cup has conducted the "Win and You're In" series. The series was launched in 2007 with 25 qualifying races. Internationally, the series now includes 14 races at tracks in England, Ireland, France, Australia, and Hong Kong.

The 2010 Breeders' Cup is scheduled for Nov. 5-6 at Churchill Downs in Louisville.
