The Best Seats at Santa Anita Park for the 2019 Breeders' Cup

By Evan Chronis June 13, 2019

On November 1 and 2, Santa Anita Park will play host to the Breeders' Cup World Championships® for the 10th time in the race's 36-year history. 

Opening its gates in 1934, Santa Anita Park has been the proving grounds for some of the most prolific horses in the history of thoroughbred racing and the arena in which fans get to see World Champions crowned. 

But with the world-famous track hosting the Breeders' Cup once again in 2019, what is the best place to watch the action from at Santa Anita Park?

Let's break down the best vantage points to fully experience the 2019 Breeders' Cup.

Santa Anita Park

1/16 Pole Before Finish Line

Loge Box Seating Breeders' CupWitness the World Championships hit their opening strides and a climactic finale from seats at the 1/16th pole of Santa Anita Park. 

Not only do these seats give you a straight-on view of the action unfolding on the closing straight, but they also provide a great vantage point of the horses making their way down the back straight and gaining momentum heading into the far turn. And if you look even further — you have the best view of the San Gabriel Mountains, providing a pristine backdrop for the competition.

Past the Finish Line

Breeders' Cup Seating

There are two major benefits to witnessing the Breeders' Cup World Championships from past the finish line. 

First, you get a prime vantage point of the winning horse crossing the finish line, watching the emotion of becoming a world champion hit the jockey's face in real time. 

Second, you get a first-hand look at the horses jockeying for position as they head into the first turn. The first turn is where many jockeys will try and make a move on the competition, especially those looking to get closer to the rail from the further post positions.
