The Breeders' Cup will reinstate entry fee benefits to the winners of Challenge races that lost their designation when the events came off the turf at Keeneland, but they will not receive an automatic starting position.
The Breeders' Cup will pay $40,000 for horses shipping from outside North America, and $10,000 for domestic horses shipping to California, for the 2013 World Championships. Entry fees will also be dropped from 3% to 2%.
Despite the defections of some major contenders in recent weeks, the Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships will have competitive races and "plenty of stars," according to Breeders' Cup president D. G. Van Clief Jr.
