2022 Breeders Cup Mile Betting Odds at Santa Anita racecourse

Saturday, 05 November 2022

We’re counting down the days until the Breeders’ Cup Mile, with this forming part of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships and it’s a renewal which is run over the distance of exactly one mile.

However, rather than some of the others that are run on dirt, this encounter is run on turf, with the purse currently standing at $2 million and that means that this heat attracts star quality from all over the world.

Goldikova remains the most successful horse when it comes to the Breeders’ Cup Mile, with the runner having obliged on three occasions between 2008-2010, while Expert Eye was the winner in 2018.

Can Bricks And Mortar Be an American Winner?

American hopes of a winner in the Breeders’ Cup Mile could rest with Bricks And Mortar who is currently trading at odds of 4/1. The horse won at Arlington Park in August and there was plenty to like about a victory which saw the runner win the Arlington Million XXXVII Stakes.

This was a Grade 1 victory and trainer Chad C Brown will now be eyeing more glory for a runner that appears to have hit his peak at the age of 5. It was previously enjoying a long lay-off following spring victories at Belmont Park and Churchill Downs.

However, there appears to be an exciting British raider in the form of Circus Maximus and he certainly looks like a young pretender to the crown. The three-year-old has been making waves in England and looks set to run a big race if he makes it to America this autumn.

The Aidan O’Brien-trained charge won at Longchamp recently when fending off Romanised to win the Prix du Moulin de Longchamp and this Group 1 victory over one mile will have filled connections with confidence that the horse can deliver in a Breeders’ Cup setting.

The horse was also a winner at Royal Ascot when winning the Group 1 St James’s Palace Stakes and perhaps he can cause some problems for Bricks And Mortar who has thus far been running against native American runners.
