The world's best thoroughbred owners, trainers and jockeys converge each autumn to compete for the Breeders' Cup, the most prestigious horse racing event in the world.

The first Breeders’ Cup was held in Hollywood Park and consisted of a single day’s racing. Today, it’s a two-day event that attracts the world’s top competitors and offers a prize of over $30 million. Put simply, it’s a showstopper in the racing calendar and a unique venue in which to enjoy horse racing.

One of America’s most exciting sporting events, the Breeders’ Cup enjoys a different location each year, and we’re delighted to be able to take Spectate clients right to the action. In 2024 we are excited to be heading to Del Mar Racetrack in California.

We carefully create each and every Breeders’ Cup tour to get the best out of each location and offer the best experience for our clients.

We would be delighted to help tailor your trip to California; let us know your plans and we'll happily take care of all the arrangements from pre or post tour extensions, flight upgrades and airport lounge access to hand-picked sightseeing excursions.

White Stallion Ranch

A guest ranch with a warm family welcome, the informal White Stallion Ranch sits on 3,000 acres of wide-open land at the foot of the ruggedly beautiful Tucson Mountains, adjacent to the Saguaro National Park and between Tucson and Phoenix. We highly recommend White Stallion whether it is your first ranch holiday or 100th.
