The Classis is as standard as you can get. It’s for horses aged 3+ on a 1.25-mile long track. However, the simplicity of the race set up means that it usually makes for some compelling action! And with this years line up, it certainly seems like it’ll hold up to the hype. McKinzie might be a favorite.

This race takes place on November 3rd at 5:44 PM EDT.

The Mile race at the Breeders’ Cup is a distance of 1 mile on a grass turf. It totals two turns and is a race for horses that are 3+. Surprisingly, the medium of the ground makes quite a difference to horses when they race. Grass versus dirt can be a major deciding factor on who will win. It makes a lot of sense to research how each of these horses and jockeys have historically performed on a grass turf before placing a bet on this Breeders’ Cup race. This race will be held on November 3rd at 3:36 PM EDT.
Again, these are the top competitors listed on the main site of the Breeders’ Cup website. This list is just to get you started on your research into each horse and their jockey.
How to bet on Breeders Cup?
- If you do one thing before placing a horse racing bet, make sure that it is research. A poorly researched bet might as well be money thrown away.
- After you know which horses in which races you want to bet on, you should start looking for a good bookmaker. Ideally, you should find the most favorable odds on the horses that you think will win.
- Once you’ve got your horses and found a bookmaker, it’s time to register. Be prepared to enter your personal details as well as your banking information. Remember, gambling is still illegal in some states and your bookmaker will have to verify a few things before you’re permitted to bet on horses at the Breeders’ Cup.
- Lastly, you will make a betting slip with the interface on your bookmaker’s platform. Choose the races you want and select your winners. When you’re ready, you can submit the betting slip and then keep your fingers crossed your picks come out on top!
Betting on horse racing can be a lot of fun, especially at big events like the Breeders’ Cup. But remember to never bet more than you can afford to lose. Gambling can be addictive and it’s important to be aware of your money management. Your financial security is not worth risking for some small horse racing bets. Please, play smart and bet wisely.
