Looking at the betting favorites to cash in at the Breeders' Cup Classic


Here’s a look at the latest futures odds for the November 3 race

Looking at the betting favorites to cash in at the Breeders' Cup Classic | News Article by

With the summer races coming to a close, the next big event in horse racing is the breeders cup betting, scheduled for November 2 and 3 at the famed track at Churchill Downs. The big show of the weekend is the Breeders’ Cup Classic, featuring some of the top horses around the world.

Triple Crown champion Justify will not run in the Classic, opting to retire due to injury concerns, and that means the field is more wide open. Here’s a look at the latest futures odds for the November 3 race:

Accelerate 2/1
This five-year-old has been on a tear in recent races, finishing first in four of his last five event. He most recently found his way to the Winner’s Circle at the Pacific Classic at Del Mar in mid-August which came on the heels of a victory in the Gold Cup at Santa Anita in May. The John W. Sadler-trained horse is expected to run in the Awesome Again G1 in late September before making the trip to Churchill Downs. Accelerate has eight career wins, has finished runner-up in five races, and has shown in three others. He’s finished outside the Top 3 in just one race in his storied career.

Catholic Boy 5/1
Catholic Boy is coming off a big win at the Travers Stakes in Saratoga last month and rides a three-race streak into September, with victories at the Belmont Derby and Pennine Ridge-G3 back in June. He showed his speed on a quick track at Saratoga but will be up against a tougher field and unknown track conditions at Churchill Downs. He ran fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile last year and will likely race in the Jockey Club Gold Cup-G1 in late September before showing up in the Classic.

Good Magic 5/1
This horse could have a much better resume if not for Justify. Good Magic challenged the Triple Crown winner on two occasions but couldn’t upset his run to history. Chad C. Brown watched his star pupil finish ninth in the Travers Stakes, running four-wide most of the race and getting bounced around. Good Magic won the Haskell Invitational in late July and has finished Top 3 in seven of nine career races and likely won’t run until the Classic – if that even happens.

Diversify 7/1
This five-year-old is picking up steam in the 2018 with back-to-back-to-back wins this summer, most recently running up front at the Whitney at Saratoga. He is the defending Jockey Club Gold Cup-G1 champion and will likely defend his title again before deciding to race in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. He’s claimed victory in eight of his 12 career races and could be a great value pick in a Trifecta for the November 3 event at Churchill Downs.

Mckinzie 8/1
This Bob Baffert horse has been very lightly raced in 2018 due to a hock injury, last taking to the track for the San Felipe Stakes-G2 in March, finishing second in that race after opening his career with three-straight wins. Baffert is one of the top trainers in the sport and coming off his second Triple Crown champ. But with Justify finished, his attention will be on Mckinzie – should they decided to race him in the Classic. Baffert won three straight Classic crowns from 2014 to 2016 and this horse is moving up the odds board in Las Vegas. He opened 30/1 to win the Classic and is expected to make his comeback at the Pennsylvania Derby on September 22. All eyes will be on Mckinzie in that race.
