The $6 million Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic is the signature race at the 2020 World Championships, which will be held Nov. 6-7 at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky. The 1 1/4-mile race will be televised live Nov. 7 on NBC with a scheduled post time of 5:13 p.m. ET.

America’s Best Racing has put together a comprehensive slideshow of the horses expected to compete in this year’s Classic to give racing fans a feel for each of the contenders. For most of the horses that are pre-entered, we were able to find a nice close-up image, a workout photo, and a racing photo to bring readers closer to the Classic runners, who are listed alphabetically.
