Einstein Headed for BC Classic Breeders Betting

November 30th, 2010 Breeders Cup Betting

Breeders Cup betting in the Breeders Cup Classic will include the talented 7-year old horse Einstein.

The Breeders Cup Classic should be a great race and Einstein could be a popular choice in Breeders Cup wagering.

Breeders Cup betting begins on Friday, November 6th with six races and continues on Saturday with eight races including the Breeders Cup Classic. One of the horses in the Classic will be Einstein who is trained by Helen Pitts. The horse has won 11 of his 28 career starts. He has won before on the synthetic surface at Santa Anita as he won the Santa Anita Handicap. "He loves the game, he loves to run," jockey Julien Leparoux said, "He’ll always give 110-percent, that’s one of the great things about riding him."

Breeders Cup betting had the horse working out at Churchill Downs and going five furlongs in 0:59 4/5 on a fast track. "He is strong and he’s going to be ready for the Breeders’ Cup," Leparoux noted. Breeders Cup betting will include a number of contenders for the Classic including Mine That Bird and Summer Bird. 2008 Santa Anita Derby winner Colonel John and Florida Derby winner Quality Road are also among the Breeders Cup wagering contenders in the classic.

Einstein definitely has a shot in this Breeders Cup betting race. "I’m excited about it," said Pitts. "Why not take a shot at it? He likes that track out there and who knows? Every Grade One in this country is tough, let alone the Breeders’ Cup, but if anybody deserves a shot, he does. I think he’s tough right now. He’s matured a lot and I think he’s doing great now."

The Breeders Cup betting question to be answered is whether or not the superstar filly Zenyatta will be entered in the Classic. She could run in either the Classic or the Ladies’ Classic in Breeders Cup wagering.

Breeders Cup betting on Friday begins with the Marathon and is followed by the Juvenile Fillies Turf, the Filly & Mare Sprint, the Juvenile Fillies and the Filly & Mare Turf. Friday’s Breeders Cup betting concludes with the Ladies’ Classic. All of the Breeders Cup betting races on Friday will be televised by ESPN 2. Saturday’s Breeders Cup wagering begins with the Juvenile Turf. It is followed in Breeders Cup betting by the Turf Sprint, the Dirt Mile, the Juvenile, the Mile, the Sprint and the Turf. Breeders Cup betting concludes with the Classic.
