The Breeders’ Cup of Argentina – Carreras De Las Estrellas

Emotion Orpen, 2021 Estrellas Classic winner

The 32nd edition of Carreras de las Estrellas, the Breeders' Cup of Argentina, will be celebrated on Saturday, June 25, at Buenos Aires racetrack, Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo.

There are six Grade 1 races on the 15-race program with the simulcast available for live-stream on the Sky Racing World and major ADW platforms. The first post on the 15-race card is 12:30 p.m. ET / 9:30am PT.

The feature event on the card, the Gran Premio Estrellas Classic over 1 ¼ miles, includes recent Gran Premio República Argentina winner Nievre, who is looking for back-to-back victories. Another brilliant ride from jockey Estaban Torres (watch replay) will be required to take out the classic.

The Carreras de las Estrellas was organized in Argentina for the first time in 1991 and soon became one of the most popular horse racing journeys in the country.  This international contest shows the important position Argentina holds within the industry, as well as the rising path the country is going through.
