When you bet Breeders Cup races, it’s like betting on the Super Bowl of the sport. It’s the culmination of all the top racing events in the world. When the discussion of top horses comes up, Big Brown must be included. Every betting Breeders Cup fan wants to know if this horse can take the title at Santa Anita this year.
Betting Breeders Cup fans will recall that Big Brown got off to a tremendous start to the season. Heading into the Kentucky Derby he couldn’t be beat. Not only did he win, but he destroyed his competition with multi-length wins. It looked as though he was a sure bet Breeders Cup champ. But then the outcome of the Belmont Stakes tainted his streak. It’s still unknown exactly what happened, but as every betting Breeders Cup fan knows, something was not right with the horse.
It could have been the crack in his hoof, as many betting Breeders Cup fans have speculated. Or, it could have been a loose shoe jammed back into the hoof during the race as other betting Breeders Cup experts said. Whatever the case, he finished 9th. No one expected that to happen in the betting Breeders Cup action in October.
But after that awful finish, Big Brown looks to be back in fine form and should be the horse to beat in the betting Breeders Cup action. You can’t discount this horse. In his last race after the Breeders Cup, Big Brown showed a side to the crowd that many betting Breeders Cup fans weren’t sure he had, coming from behind and charging to a comfortable win at the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth.
Heading into the race, all the early betting Breeders Cup odds have Big Brown listed as the favorite and there is little evidence suggesting otherwise. But he’ll face stiff competition in the Classic from other top horses in the world. This will be the race to watch if you want to bet Breeders Cup action. Henrythenavigator looks strong in Europe and defending betting Breeders Cup champ Curlin can’t be overlooked either.
Big Brown’s next start is on September 13th at the Monomuth Stakes on grass. If he runs well here, there should be little doubt that he’s the favorite of those who bet Breeders Cup.
