Marathon Moved to Friday in Breeders Cup Wagering

Breeders Cup wagering action includes 14 races between Friday, November 6th and Saturday, November 7th but now there will be six races on Friday and eight races on Saturday after the Marathon was moved to Friday.

The reason for the switch was so that a Pick Six will be available on Friday in Breeders Cup betting as well as Saturday.

Breeders Cup wagering on Friday at the sportsbook begins with the Marathon which begins at 3:35 pm Eastern time. The distance was also changed as the horses will now be going a brutal mile and three quarters. Following the Marathon on Friday in Breeders Cup wagering it will be the Juvenile Fillies Turf for 2 Year Old Fillies. The third race in Friday’s Pick Six at the sports book will be the Filly & Mare Sprint as horses for 7 furlongs. The Juvenile Fillies is the fourth race on Friday in Breeders Cup wagering as 2 Year Old Fillies go a mile and 1/16th. The Filly & Mare Turf is the fifth race in on Friday Breeders Cup wagering as horses go a mile and a quarter.
