This year for the first time, the Breeders' Cup is carding two of its championship races after the GI Longines Breeders' Cup Classic, and FanDuel TV will be the exclusive linear broadcast partner for both the $1 million GI Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint and the $2 million GI Qatar Racing Breeders' Cup Sprint.

“The Breeders' Cup is always a highlight on the racing calendar and one of the biggest weekends of the year for our audience and we are excited to be expanding our coverage for the 40th running,” Kevin Grigsby, FanDuel TV Executive Producer, said. “Racing fans can count on wall-to-wall coverage from Pre-Entry till the last race on Saturday.”

The FanDuel Group is an official sponsor of the Breeders' Cup and the title sponsor of the $2 million GI FanDuel Breeders' Cup Juvenile presented by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) and the $2 million GI FanDuel Breeders' Cup Mile presented by the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF).
