Breeders’ Cup Presents The News Minute: Ins And Outs Before Post Position Draw

There have been a number of key withdrawals prior to Monday afternoon's post position draw for the 14 Breeders' Cup championship races on Nov. 5-6 at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in Del Mar, Calif.

The draw will be conducted in the Del Mar paddock beginning at 2:30 p.m. PT/5:30 p.m. ET and is open to the public. It can also be viewed on TVG or at, the Breeders' Cup mobile app or the Breeders' Cup YouTube, Facebook or Twitter pages.

In this edition of the News Minute, Ray Paulick reviews some of the key defections from Breeders' Cup races, including G1 Santa Anita Handicap winner Idol from the Classic, leaving the 1 1/4-mile test with nine expected starters led by trainer Brad Cox's two Horse of the Year candidates, Knicks Go and Essential Quality.

Paulick also has a tip for those out-of-towners coming to San Diego County for the Breeders' Cup and it has to do with what many of our mothers told us is the most important meal of the day.

For those not coming to Breeders' Cup (and limited tickets are still available), NBCSN and TVG will carry all the action on Future Stars Friday from 5-9 p.m. ET. On Saturday, NBCSN and TVG will televise the championships from 2:30-8 p.m. ET. The NBC network takes over from 8-9 p.m. ET for the Breeders' Cup Classic.
