How to Bet the Breeders’ Cup

Posted by Webster Washington on 11/10/2015 4:30:16 AM

In late October or early November each year, the best thoroughbreds in the world gather for two days of racing known as The Breeders’ Cup. It’s an event that offers huge purses and lifelong prestige for horses and horsemen. For bettors, it’s a two-day extravaganza that provides opportunities to make big money. Getting in on the action is easy with the Racebook at SportsBetting.ag. Here’s how to make a wager:

1. On race day, log into the site and click the “Racebook” tab.

2. Look for “Upcoming Races” or “Tracks,” and find “Keeneland,” the site of Breeders’ Cup 2015

3. Click on “Keeneland,” and the list of the day’s races there will come up. On the first day of the Breeders’ Cup, the Cup races are usually the last four on the card. Day 2 is a full card of Breeders’ Cup races.

4. Find the race number, and you’ll see a menu of bet types. If you’re unsure about the wagering types, our Racebook has a good explainer.

5. Click on the wager you like. As an example, we’ll illustrate using a simple straight wager under “Win/Place/Show.”

6. With this type of bet, you check the box corresponding to the order of finish you predict for the horse. Below is an example of a “Win” bet for a random race.

7. Then you are prompted for the amount you want to wager on your bet.

8. Finally, you’ll see the date, track, race number, your bet amount and bet type, and your horse’s number. Check it, and click on “Confirm.”

NOTE: Keep in mind that the bet you make is according to the morning line odds for the race. The odds you see listed may change before post time. For example, if your pick was listed as 8-1, the odds may go up or down before the race goes off. That means, your pick may end up as, say 10-1, 5-2 or 3-1. The post time – or FINAL - odds will be used for your payoff.
