Betting Breeders Cup: Will Curlin Run at Santa Anita

November 30th, 2010 Breeders Cup Betting

Betting Breeders Cup fans are dying to see the reigning horse of the year run in this year’s event.

However, no one is quite sure if Curlin will defend his title in the Classic. Anyone looking to bet Breeders Cup action in October can only hope that this champion will make an appearance and set up a dream show in the betting Breeders Cup Classic with Big Brown and Henrythenavigator.

Betting Breeders Cup racing represents the best that the world of horse racing has to offer. It would be a tragedy if he were to miss out on the races and if fans were to miss out on a chance to bet Breeders Cup action with him in the lineup. After taking the racing world by storm and winning in the betting Breeders Cup action last year, he has established himself as arguably the best horse in the world. On dirt, there’s no question he’s as good as they come. However, he’s been overlooked by the media up to this year’s bet Breeders Cup event. All the talk has been of Big Brown and the likely appearance of European Champ Henrythenavigator in the betting Breeders Cup list.

Much of this has to do with the fact that the horse’s owner is reluctant to commit to the betting Breeders Cup event. The new synthetic track at Santa Anita could be the reason. It will play host to the 2008 betting Breeders Cup Classic, and since Curlin is a top dirt track horse the reluctance to run him on a synthetic track is understandable. But that does little to alleviate the fans’ desire to see him in the betting Breeders Cup lineup.

After winning the Dubai World Cup and two Grade 1 races in his 4-year-old campaign, he is in consideration for the Horse of the Year award this year. A victory betting Breeders Cup would seal the deal. Recently, Curlin’s owner has warmed up slightly to the idea of running on a synthetic track and the possibility of betting Breeders Cup showdown seems more likely now than ever.

The Goodwood Classic, held on the same Santa Anita track as the betting Breeders Cup Classic, would be a great test for Curlin. If he runs there, it’s a sure bet Breeders Cup Classic will have him in the lineup.
