Prize $$$$ Money Payouts for All the 2018 Breeders Cup Horse Races

The 2018 Breeders Cup series of horse races will take place this year on November 3, 2018, at beautiful Churchill Downs located in Louisville, Kentucky. Here is a list of the prize money for each of the 14 races.



For each race the total prize money purse is listed and then the money is broken down based upon where each horse finishes. Obviously, the winners get the most money followed by the 2nd place finisher and the third place finisher on down the line.

Trainers typically get 10% of the prize money that the horses they train earn. So for each payout below just divide by 10 to see what the trainer of the horses who finish in each spot below will get.

Jockeys also typically get 10% of the prize money their mounts earn at least for horses that win or finish in 2nd or 3rd place. Beyond 3rd place jockeys can get 5% or less of what the horse they ride earns but in Breeders Cup races it's possible they still get the full 10% depending on the jockey.
