Breeders Crown should only be held at mile ovals, specifically Woodbine.  The past two runnings have been the best ever.  Every horse has a fair chance.  5/8 ovals or half mile don't give all starters a fair chance.  The 1 through possibly 5 will be the only posts to win at Pocono.  I do like Pocono track and their simulcast coverage.

Woodbine is a 7/8 of a mile oval

They should race them at Big M , Mohawk not Wdb only because the action is closer to the fans and horsemen at Mohawk. Balmoral, the Red Mile, Hoosier Park, or Cal expo.  The only bad thing about racing them at Cal expo or The Red Mile if it rains it would be a bust because of the track surface. But Balmoral and Hoosier should get a chance to host these championship races at least once.

Swaymi, I completely agree with Mohawk over Woodbine. Anyone who has been to both tracks would feel Mohawk is a much better choice for racing and for the fans.
Woodbine harness track is so far away from the stands since it is inside both the dirt and turf T-Bred ovals. I guess if they have it at Woodbine binocular sales and rentals will surely rise in Rexdale, Ontario thumbs up thumbs up

Breeders Crown at Cal Expo seems like a great idea..
They could surround the Crown races with $2000 claimers, but just the really good ones, like the "A" and "B" 2 claimers.
