Nine previous Breeders’ Cup past horse race gambling online winners are set to appear in the 2017 edition of the annual series of Grade I Thoroughbred horse races, on November 3 and 4 at Del Mar Racetrack in Del Mar, California. The Breeders’ Cup is usually considered the end of the racing season, meaning that after it and for a long, long time there will be little or nothing to report on the subject of horse racing betting odds. Therefore, let us carpe diem and look those nine horses in the mouth.
Breeders’ Cup Classic
What can be said about Arrogate that hasn’t been said before? Precious little. That’s what.
Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf
- Highland Reel
- Oscar Performance
Reel is the defending Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf champion and is 2 out of 2 on American soil. This five-year-old horse has, all told, won six Grade or Group 1 races on three different continents, as well as competed on four in seven different countries, and gone toe to toe (literally; horses have just one toe) with the likes of Winx, Enable, Golden Horn, Postponed, Almanzor, Minding and New Bay.
Oscar Performance should not be confused with Oscar Nominated, who will also be in this race.
Twinspires Breeders’ Cup Sprint
Trained by Bob Baffert, it’s no wonder that this horse beat horse race gambling online favourite Masochistic last year to earn Baffert his fifth Breeders’ Cup Sprint win and 13th Breeders’ Cup championship, as well as increasing the Drefong’s career earnings to $1,203,040.
Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf
- Lady Eli
- Queen’s Trust
Eli won the 2014 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Santa Anita and has never looked back; she has always been either the winner (10 times) or the runner-up (three times) in 13 starts. In fact, Lady Eli would be, for all we know, still undefeated, had she not, stepped on a nail back in 2015. No word on whether she was trying to climb tar-covered stairs at the time.
Eli developed, as a result, hoof disease laminitis, which usually spells, when it happens, the end of a horse’s career and, more often than not, life. But not in this case.
Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff
- Champagne Room
Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint
- Finest City
Finest City’s win in the 2016 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint was her first Grade 1 victory in 14 starts, and second in the stakes ranks following a win in the Great Lady M. Stakes (G2) at Los Alamitos on April 23rd. Finest City is the first Breeders’ Cup starter for trainer Ian Kruljac, who has experience beyond his 28 years of age gained as his father’s, successful trainer Eric Kruljac, assistant.
Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint
- Mongolian Saturday
Mongolian Saturday, or as they call him in Mongolia, Saturday, won the 2015 Turf Sprint. “Being a Mongolian, this is a big dream just to participate in this big event,” Ganbat Enebish said. no kidding; horse riding is the No. 2 spectator sport in the East Asian landlocked unitary sovereign state, second only to Mongolian wrestling (not even making this up), so horse race gambling online must be big there as well.
