Don’t Forget about Quality Road in Breeders Cup Odds

November 30th, 2010 Breeders Cup Betting

Much of the attention in Breeders Cup odds will be on the unbeaten Zenyatta in the Classic but don’t forget about the Todd Pletcher trained Quality Road.

This horse has a ton of class and a lot of talent.  He might get lost in the hoopla surrounding Zenyatta but he should not be dismissed in online gambling odds when you bet the Classic at the Sbg sportsbook.

Quality Road
This horse has won eight of his twelve career starts and he has never finished worse than third. He is trained by Todd Pletcher who is the best trainer in the world.  He is coming off a brilliant win last time out in the Donn Handicap where he won by more than 12 lengths. Pletcher said if the race was longer the horse would have won by 25 lengths. Quality Road has won four of his five starts this year with the one loss to Blame in the Whitney Handicap by just a neck.  Pletcher really likes the chances of Quality Road in the classic since it will be run on the dirt on what should be a fast track. Quality Road has earned more than $2.2 million in his career and is a three-time grade I winner this year.

The attention in Breeders Cup odds will be on Zenyatta and for good reason. The horse has never lost but if she was to lose this race then it could be that Quality Road is the horse to beat her. Most people are going to be rooting for Zenyatta to win her last race and finish a perfect 20 for 20 but horse racing is about winning money and there may be some value on taking Quality road in the Classic.  An across the board bet in Breeders Cup online gambling does look like a good one on Quality Road for Saturday.
