    The 2014 Breeders’ Cup

    The long wait is just about over. We’re approaching the starting gate for the Breeders’ Cup 2014 World Championships. It will take place for the third straight year at majestic Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. Thoroughbred racing just doesn’t get better than this: 13 races will be spread out over two days from Friday, October 31 to Saturday, November 1. The races will feature the world’s best horses in their respective divisions. A total purse of $26 million is up for grabs, and the Breeders’ Cup betting action will almost certainly top nine figures again this year.

    Friday’s four-race appetizer will be capped off by the Distaff, where the top fillies and mares will travel 1 1/8 miles over dirt for a $2 million purse. Then it’s on to Saturday’s nine races, leading up to the main event, the prestigious $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic. You don’t have to wait until Halloween to get your treats: early Breeders’ Cup odds for the top races are available on the Breeders’ Cup futures market.

    Thanks to the Challenge series, we already know several of the horses who will be invited to participate at Santa Anita. Watch out for Beholder at the Distaff – she just took down the Zenyatta Stakes to earn her automatic entry. We also expect California Chrome to get the call from the expert panel. He’ll be looking for closure after coming up short of the Triple Crown at Belmont.
