The Breeders’ Cup has announced its June and July schedule of races for the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series, with highlights that include a pair of automatic qualifiers for the GI Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic and four berths on offer at the Royal Ascot meeting. The Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series, now in its 14th year, is an international series of stakes races whose winners receive automatic starting spots and fees paid into a corresponding race in the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, which will be held this year on Nov. 6-7 at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky. The 15 Challenge Series races scheduled over the next two months will be televised on either NBC Sports, TVG or Fox Sports and kick off with Saturday’s GI Runhappy Carter H. from Belmont Saturday (FS1, GI Sprint) and Sunday’s G1 Yasuda Kinen from Tokyo Racecourse (TVG, GI TVG Mile).
