Breeders’ Cup Announces Second Season Of ‘All In’ Docuseries

Breeders’ Cup, one of Thoroughbred horse racing’s most prestigious international events, today announced the return of ‘ALL IN: The Road to The Classic,’ the brand’s original digital docuseries that first debuted in 2018. The show’s six-part sophomore season, premiering on Wednesday, October 9 at 2:00 PM ET, will showcase the journeys of the world-class trainers, owners, breeders and horses competing for a starting spot in the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic, which will take place on Saturday, November 2 at storied Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California.

Following the success of the inaugural season which garnered more than 1.5 million views, the new episodes will be distributed across an expanded portfolio of digital media platforms and broadcast channels across three global territories including the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

“The public response to the first season of ‘ALL IN’ exceeded our every expectation,” said Craig Fravel, President and CEO of Breeders’ Cup. “Our fans were excited to go behind-the-scenes and learn more about their favorite horses, trainers and owners and see what it really takes to have a horse good enough to compete at the highest level in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. We’re thrilled to bring the series back for another season and to be adding new distribution partners to ensure that audiences across the world can enjoy the show and its incredible stories.”

‘ALL IN’ episodes will premiere on the Breeders’ Cup digital channels (YouTube, Facebook and BreedersCup.com) and will later air on NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) and TVG Network in the United States, The Sports Network (TSN) in Canada and Sky Sports Racing in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Together, the increased distribution plan will deliver the docuseries to more viewers than ever before.

Over the course of the six-part season, viewers are expected to encounter many of the industry’s most illustrious figures, including 15-time Breeders’ Cup winning trainer, Bob Baffert, and the event’s most winning jockey of all time, Mike Smith, as they navigate the 2019 racing season in the quest to compete in the Breeders’ Cup Classic.
