2022 Breeders Cup Classic Betting Odds at Keeneland racecourse

Saturday, 05 November 2022

The Breeders’ Cup is an unprecedented horse racing meeting which was inaugurated in 1984 and it’s a two-day event which starts on a Friday with a selection of top-class juvenile outings, although it’s on the Saturday USA racecard where the action really hots up and we’re greatly excited about the prospect of the Breeders’ Cup Classic.

Bet On Breeders’ Cup Classic 2020

There are lots of big money races when it comes to the Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland although there no bigger races than the Breeders’ Cup Classic, with a purse of $6 million being made available for a race where horses aged three or older will qualify for an encounter where there’s an opportunity to make history.

Maximum Security and Tiz The Law Head the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Classic Betting

Legendary American trainer Bob Baffert is no stranger to success when it comes to the two-day Breeders’ Cup meeting and he could saddle the race favourite considering that Maximum Security is an impressive four-year-old who has been winning previous heats with relative ease.

Baffert started training the horse in July and the runner has obliged twice at Del Mar since then, with Maximum Security winning the San Diego Handicap before obliging in the TVG Pacific Classic Stakes over one mile and two furlongs.

Tiz The Law is a younger pretender to the crown, with Barclay Tagg looking to claim his first Breeders’ Cup Classic title and the horse has looked visually impressive in his previous three outings, with the runner obliging at odds-on when winning the Belmont Stakes on 20 June.

There was another victory in the Runhappy Travers Stakes and the horse was then sent off at odds-on to win the Kentucky Derby on 6 September when being beaten by Authentic, with the latter trading at 11/2 and that could be a decent price.

The History of the Breeders’ Cup Classic

The Classic is actually regarded as the premier thoroughbred horse race in the United States of America, surpassing even the Triple Crown events such as the Kentucky Derby. The prize money is heavy and that leads to several big names appearing for this race.

Indeed, the Breeders’ Cup Classic forms part of the Grand Slam of Thoroughbred Racing along with the Kentucky Derby, Belmont Stakes and Preakness Stakes, with Wild Again winning the first ever renewal in 1984 and that triumph came at Hollywood Park.

More recent victors have been Bayern, Accelerate and Vino Rosso, with the 2020 renewal being held at Keeneland, having been rotated between different American racecourses over the years incorporating dirt and turf tracks.
