The Breeders' Cup, with the help of iPhone app developer Rock Software
, has announced the official Breeder's Cup iPhone app. The Breeders' Cup world championships will occur on November 5 and 6 at Churchill Downs
. The iPhone app will allow users to watch all 14 championship races live and free directly from their Apple iPhone. The app was rated 4.5 stars out of 5 on Apple's iTunes app store out of 48 ratings; sounds like the real deal. Android users, sorry, no app for you, however, they do plan to release an iPad app in advance of the races.
