Breeders Cup Odds 2020

Slated for November 6-7, 2020, at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky, for the 13 Breeders' Cup races including five on Friday and eight on Saturday, led, of course, by the Breeders' Cup Classic. 

Speaking of the Classic, a wild Triple Crown season did little to separate the top three-year-olds in the United States.

Similar parity exists among the best older dirt horses in training, which should spark serious interest in the Breeders' Cup Future Odds with such a wide-open group. When it comes to horse racing odds, bettors are usually enticed by contentious betting races with large fields.

How does the Breeders' Cup Work

Pre-entered fields for all of the 2020 Breeders' Cup World Championship races will be announced via LIVE stream on TVG Network and on social media (Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook) on October 21, starting at 11:30 AM ET.

The official field for the Breeders’ Cup Classic, in post-position order with morning line odds, will be announced on Monday, October 26, from Santa Anita Park. The draw will be streamed LIVE at the Breeders' Cup website. 

How many Breeders' Cup races are there?

With 14 Breeders' Cup races, which are contested over a two-day betting bonanza, the Breeders' Cup Series is unlike any other wagering opportunity in horse racing. The action starts with the five juvenile (races for two-year-olds) on Friday and leads into the nine big main events on Saturday. 

Where is the Breeders' Cup?

Back at Santa Anita for the 10th time since the 1984 inception of the Breeders' Cup, the "Great Race Place" was established as the site of the 2019 event, but not without an unusual amount of controversy.

After a well-publicized rash of horse deaths during racing and training during the 2019 winter/spring meet, there was talk of moving the event to Churchill Downs. That idea, however, was squashed by Breeders' Cup officials who voted unanimously in late June to keep the event at Santa Anita. 

When is the Breeders' Cup?

November 6-7, 2020.

October Futures for Other Breeders' Cup Races

Bovada currently lists future odds for 5 additional Breeders' Cup races: the Turf, the Mile, the Distaff, the Filly & Mare Turf, and the Sprint. Among these future books, the Mile has a robust 24 betting interests, the Turf has 20, the Distaff 14, Filly & Mare Turf 14, and the Sprint 13. 

The wild card, Mitole, is listed as a +400 second choice in the Sprint, but this horse is a candidate for the Dirt Mile or Classic. 

Some other observations of note: 

  • Bricks and Mortar (+700 in the Turf) has been a win-machine and may offer value at this price despite the usual challenge an American-based runner faces in this race will tackling a talented cast of Euros, including reigning champ Enable (+350), and Crystal Ocean (+800). 
  • Monomoy Girl (+400) is the listed favourite in the Distaff despite suffering some minor injuries and an illness that has kept the superstar sidelined since winning the 2018 Distaff in November. Bettors will want to closely follow her summer/fall schedule as she should make a start or two at Saratoga. As things stand now, she'd be a play-against for me. 
  • The Filly & Mare Turf looks wide-open, but Rushing Fall at +800 looks like a good prospect at this juncture.

      What are the types of odds

      While future betting is an excellent way to roll, there are certainly a plethora of ways to get involved in the Breeders' Cup. If you simply prefer the security of waiting until race day to wager, there's certainly nothing wrong with that approach. 

      Breeders Cup

      The types of odds are essentially the same for any horse race. Let's take the available menu for the Kentucky Derby odds as an example.

      Many of our partners offer unique props and head-to-head matchups, giving the bettor even more options to capitalize on a wagering option.
