There will be an assortment of attractions at the races, from shoe shining to a mobile barbershop. John Cádiz Klemack reports from Santa Anita for the NBC4 News at 5 p.m. on Nov. 1, 2012.
Horse racing's biggest worldwide event is nearly ready to begin.
This weekend's 29th Breeders' Cup is bringing fans from around the country and around the world to Santa Anita Race Track.
"This was on my Bucket List, coming to a Breeders' Cup, and of course I wanted to come to Santa Anita," said Chris Trujillo, who traveled from from Washington State.
She met up with her daughter, who lives in Atlanta, to be a part of all the excitement.
What do they expect to see?
"Some good finishes, some close calls, some good races," Lea Trujillo said.
Local champion trainer, Bob Baffert has ten horses running in various races over the two days. "Game on Dude" came in second last year, but he's the favorite to win this time around.
"All the best horses show up in these two days, and so, if you really want to get up close and personal with watching the best horses run, this is the time to do it," Baffert said.
