Oak Tree Set to Maintain Breeders' Cup Dominance

The Oak Tree Racing Association, which will begin its 38th world-class season on Wednesday, Sept. 27,(tomorrow) is primed to continue its reign of unparalleled excellence in the Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships, with a series of Breeders' Cup prep races scheduled for the first two weekends of the meeting.

"There isn't a race meeting world-wide that can match our history of top performance on racing's biggest day," said Sherwood Chillingworth, Oak Tree Director and Executive Vice President. "Since the inception of the Breeders' Cup (in 1984) Oak Tree has been the premier location for horses prepping for the event."

Chillingworth pointed out that dating back to 1984, 311 Breeders' Cup horses have had their final prep races at Oak Tree. Of those, 31 individuals have gone on to victory, and an additional 63 horses have placed second or third. Of those horses which have used Oak Tree as their final steppingstone to the Breeders' Cup, a whopping 38 percent have finished first, second or third.
Oak Tree will run a series of eight Breeders' Cup prep races over the first two weekends,
