The race, which pits some of the world’s best grass milers around two turns on the turf for horses 3 years old and older, is race 9 of Saturday’s 12-race card. Post time is tentatively scheduled for 3:15 p.m. ET at the track in Lexington, Kentucky.

“FanDuel has been offering free daily fantasy contests to our customers around horse racing’s marquee events and we are capping off a successful year with a special $1 million free to play contest to celebrate TVG and FanDuel’s partnership with the Breeders’ Cup,” Matt King, CEO of FanDuel, said in the news release. “FanDuel Group is committed to growing the sport and fantasy contests for horse racing are a great way to bring new fans to horse racing’s premier event.”

Contest Open Until Post Time

The contest, live on FanDuel.com and open until post time of the race, asks fans of horse racing betting to slot each of the field’s competing horses into a finishing position of 1 through 14, the release said.

Entrants will collect points for each horse whose placement they correctly predict, with $20,000 in cash prizes awarded to the top 3,100 participants on the leaderboard, according to the release. If anyone can correctly predict the finishing order of all 14 horses in the FanDuel Breeder’s Cup Mile, they will win or share the $1 Million prize.

“As anticipation builds for the upcoming Breeders’ Cup World Championships, we are excited to offer daily fantasy players and racing enthusiasts a free way to have a real stake in the action this weekend,” said Justin McDonald, senior vice president of marketing at the Breeders’ Cup, said in the release. “We thank our partners at FanDuel for their support and commitment to creating this fun and interactive contest.”

FanDuel Group, which includes the 24-hour horse racing network TVG and FanDuel brands, became an official partner of the Breeders’ Cup in 2019 and this marks the first year the company has sponsored the Breeders’ Cup Mile.
