Changer has had to run against Street Sense Curlin, Any Given Saturday and Hard Spun but won’t have to face any of those horses in the Mile or on the Breeders Cup wagering odds board.
Breeders Cup wagering fans will look to Xchanger as one of the Breeders Cup betting choices in the Mile. Trainer Mark Shuman thinks his horse will be much better off not having to race against the superstar horses.
"I am kind of glad that I don't have to run against any of them," Shuman said. "Everybody knows that this is a great crop of 3-year-olds this year. My horse might be a notch below the very best ones, and something like a mile and a quarter isn't his thing anyway. Hopefully, this new Breeders' Cup race will show what he can do." Fans of Breeders Cup wagering will definitely want to consider Xchanger in the race. A horse that could challenge Xchanger in Breeders Cup betting in the BC Dirt Mile is Gottcha Gold who loves Monmouth Park. In his last two starts, he won the Salvator Mile, beating heavily favored Lawyer Ron, and the Iselin Handicap.
Fans of Breeders Cup wagering should know that eleven 3-year-olds and upward were pre-entered for the BC Dirt Mile, and two of those, Commentator and Forefathers, have a first preference in the BC Sprint. That leaves a probable field of nine for Breeders Cup wagering fans to consider. All nine of the probable starters have a legitimate chance in terms of Breeders Cup wagering. The likely Breeders Cup wagering favorite is Diamond Stripes at about 3-1. Discreet Cat will probably be at 7-2 in Breeders Cup wagering odds, Lewis Michael about 5-1 and Corinthian 6-1. Discreet Cat may not be a solid favorite in Breeders Cup wagering since he has raced just twice this year, finishing last of seven in the Dubai World Cup in March and then was third in his only prep race.
The Dirt Mile is run at a mile and 70 yards because of the configuration of the Monmouth track. The Dirt Mile will be the last of the three new Breeders' Cup races run on Friday, Oct. 26th for Breeders Cup betting fans to consider.
