This years Breeders’ Cup Championships take place at one of the most stylish tracks in the United States, Santa Anita Park in Pasadena, California. The Breeders’ Cup Championships take place Friday November 4th and Saturday November 5th.

Although the horses might be the main act, we can’t help but turn the spotlight on the well-dressed patrons attending the event for a portion of the day. The Longines stage will give high fashion ladies and gents the chance to compete for a gorgeous Longines Conquest Classic Timepiece. Both Friday and Saturday, one male and female will be awarded the Longines Prize of Elegance.
