The 2007 Breeder’s Cup takes place at Monmouth Park on October 26th for three races and October 27th for 8 more races.
Breeders Cup wagering should be more exciting this year with the addition of the three races on Friday. Those new races for Breeders Cup online wagering fans to consider are the Juvenile Turf, Dirt Mile, and Filly & Mare Sprint. The 11 Breeders’ Cup World Championship races drew 160 pre-entries although some of the horses are entered in multiple races. That averages out to 14.5 pre-entries per race, compared with 15.8 a race last year. The individual horses per race for Breeders Cup online wagering fans to consider averages out to a total of 13.1 this year, compared to 15.1 last year.
One of the main questions for Breeders Cup wagering fans is how the European horses will do on a fast track like Monmouth. The Monmouth stretch is 55 feet longer than Lone Star’s and 32 feet longer than Gulfstream Park and that may play a factor in Breeders Cup wagering. The European trainers were somewhat cautious this year as there were only three horses pre-entered in the Mile and Turf. The Juvenile Turf drew six Europeans. One of the pre-entered horses in the Mile, George Washington has first preference in the Classic. Fans of Breeders Cup wagering should know that Aidan O’Brien leads all European trainers with five horses pre-entered, followed by Jeremy Noseda and Brian Meehan with three each. The European horse to follow for Breeders Cup wagering fans is the O’Brien-trained Dylan Thomas, who will win European Horse of the Year honors. He has been pre-entered in the Turf, along with last year’s winner, Red Rocks, and Champs Elysees. Those should be the key horses for Breeders Cup wagering fans to consider in the Turf.
The key race for Breeders Cup online wagering fans will be the Classic where a huge battle should take place between Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense, Preakness winner Curlin, rising superstar Any Given Saturday, Hard Spun, Lawyer Ron and Tiago.
Breeders Cup wagering bettors should know that trainer Todd Pletcher leads the American trainers with 15 horses pre-entered. Patrick Biancome and Bill Mott are next with seven pre-entered horses. Overall, the two day Breeders’ Cup should be a great day for Breeders Cup wagering fans.
