LEXINGTON, Ky.

The first episode of Season 2 of ‘ALL IN’ follows the prominent personalities contending in the Whitney Stakes at Saratoga Race Course in New York and the TVG Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park in New Jersey, two “Win and You’re In” races that grant automatic entry into the Breeders’ Cup Classic as part of the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series.
