While the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes are known as North America’s three esteemed horse races, the Breeders’ Cup is right up there with them even though it doesn’t have the same longevity. The annual series of Grade I thoroughbred races is one of the richest in terms of purses. In 2014, there were 13 races with $23.5 million the line. And with so many races and horses to choose from, it can be a very profitable day for Breeders Cup betting handicappers as well.
How To Pick A Winner?
There is a lot of homework to do when it comes to handicapping the Breeders Cup betting lines. That’s because there are so many different races with varying grades, horses, surfaces and distances. The grand daddy of them all is the Breeders’ Cup Classic, which involves three-year-olds (and up) and runs 1 ¼ miles on dirt.
How Does It Work?
When you’re betting the Breeders Cup races, head on over to the horse betting section at Horseracingbetting.com to view all of the contestants and betting lines for each race. Although the traditional method of betting on the races is just to pick a winner, there are actually tons of ways to bet on the races. For example: you can bet on a horse to win, place (finish in the top two) or show (finish in the top three). You can also do a trifecta (picking the first three finishers in correct order) or a quinella (top two finishers in any order).
There are a whole slew of options, so make sure to check them all out at Horseracingbetting.com!
