As the old song goes, the turf meets the surf down at old Del Mar for this year's Breeders' Cup and you can be a part of the action right here at Tote.

We've got plenty going on for the big meeting, including a Breeders' Cup Placepot and Quadpot, so read on to find out what we've got in store for you this weekend.

When and where is the 2021 Breeders’ Cup? 

The 2021 Breeders’ Cup World Championship races will be presented at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club on Friday, November 5 and Saturday, November 6, 2021. 

Will the UK Tote be commingling into the Breeders’ Cup pools? 

Yes. We will be commingling into the following pools for Breeders’ Cup World Championship races only. This means huge pools with on-course money from Del Mar, around the USA and the world all contributing. 

  • Win 
  • Place (mapped to the US Show pool - so all races are effectively 3 places) 
  • Exacta 
  • Trifecta 

We will not be commingling into the non-Breeders’ Cup races on the same card and betting will not be available on these races. For the avoidance of doubt the races offered for betting are listed below with approximate UK race times.
