Betting Breeders Cup History

Betting Breeders Cup racing in 2008 will mark the 25th anniversary of this unique event and a quarter of a century of outstanding horse racing.

Any fan that has ever bet on Breeders Cup racing can certainly tell you that there is simply nothing like in the rest of horse racing. This year with the addition of several new races to the betting Breeders Cup action, the event has much improved on its humble beginnings.

Betting Breeders Cup is a relatively young event in the sport of horse racing, but it has more than made up for it’s lack of age by packing as much non-stop action and top quality racing as is humanely possible in the bet Breeders Cup activity. In 1984 when the inaugural event was run there was a lot of doubt as to whether or not fans would take to the betting Breeders Cup event and whether or not the event could draw the top talent in the racing world that it sought out. In the years since the answer to both of these betting Breeders Cup questions is a resounding ‘yes’.

There is really no other racing event in the world that can compare to betting Breeders Cup action. Among top tier racing with world class horses there is simply no other two-day event that carries the same impact and prestige as does a bet on Breeders Cup action. Since running the first betting Breeders Cup event at the Hollywood Park racetrack this event has exploded into the preeminent racing event in the sport.

It started out as being billed “the richest day” in sport, a title that most betting Breeders Cup fans know it has relinquished. Dubai now hosts another world class event that while arguably not as good as the betting Breeders Cup event, offers a larger single day purse and is beginning to attract top flight racing talent. But it is unlikely to take the place of a bet Breeders Cup event. Due to its position on the calendar the betting Breeders Cup action is considered the de facto post season of horse racing. It falls at the end of the year and just like the fans waiting all season to bet Breeders Cup action, the horse owners and trainers also cannot wait for this competition to settle the contest as to which the best horses of the year are.

The event has grown over the years nearly doubling in the number of races run and the purse for the betting Breeders Cup action has become enormous, at nearly $26 million in 2008. But it’s the top horse talent that keeps bringing fans back to betting Breeders Cup year after year.
