Initial Breeders Cup Stakes Betting Odds for November

2018 Breeders Cup Classic

As has been noted Catalina Cruiser, Accelerate, and Good Magic make for an excellent trio of Breeders Cup Betting favorites.  Yet they are hardly the only favorites to consider.  Not by a long shot.  And in the case of Catalina Cruiser there is the feeling of it being “the flavor of the day.”  Accelerate has an impeccable record less his terrible Breeders Cup run last year.  As for Good Magic he is likely the second best three-year-old of them all.  But the list of horses that can win the $6 million Breeders Cup Classic is long and impressive.

Certainly, Bravazo will garner plenty of attention after good runs earlier this year.  to exemplify Bravazo finished second at the Preakness and the Haskell for 2018.  Further he was the winner of the Risen Star leading up to Triple Crown season.  Fashion the fact that Bravazo was the only other horse besides Justify to run all three Triple Crown races.  Concurrently he was just a half-length behind Justify in his Triple Crown clinching win at Belmont.  Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lucas admires that his horse runs “every time.”


In like manner Collected brings the cache of the great Bob Baffert as trainer. Collected will be well rested with just one race in 2018.  Previously he finished second in last year’s Breeders Cup Classic.
