Today we think of Thoroughbred racing as being the top-fetching purse for horse races. The Breeders’ Cup has the top purses. However, the biggest mistake that bettors make is assuming that the latter part of the prep race season, now called the “Championship Series,” is the only string of races with big purses. Despite this, the quarter horse based All American Futurity became the first million dollar horse race in 1974. Although it has fluctuated over the years, starting around 2012, the All American Derby was once again in the over one million dollar category. The $10 million+ purses at the Dubai World Cup always take place on Meydan’s closing day, and this year they will take place on March 28, 2015.
