Breeders Cup Betting Guide 2012 - Classic Claimed By Fort Larned
The 2012 Breeders Cup is taking place at the famous Santa Anita race course in California and the second night of racing is as always one of the great days in the sport. The Breeders' Cup Classic is of course the feature race of the meeting and it is set to be a top class renewal this year as always with the exciting Game On Dude set to start the race as favourite.
Elsewhere on the card, the Breeders' Cup Mile is always a great race for punters to enjoy and all eyes are on Excelebration who will start a hot favourite on Saturday night. The mile is one of the highlights of the Breeders Cup Schedule with no less than 15 top races for punters to sink their teeth into during two fantastic days of action.
The Breeders Cup Turf race is one that the European raiders tend to target and it will be fascinating to see who will make the trip to California this season. In 2011 we saw St Nicholas Abbey win the race for Aidan O'Brien and there is every chance he could return to America to try and win back-to-back Breeders Cup Turf's.
Breeders Cup Meeting 2012
It is usual for the Breeders Cup to be run at a different race track each year in order to give the US public the opportunity to see the meeting every couple of years as it heads from east coast to west coast from year to year. However, 2008 and 2009 saw the Breeders Cup held at the same course for the first time ever, it was held at Santa Anita in California. That has been followed by two successive championships in Churchill Downs, while we return to California in 2012 and Santa Anita.
What makes this day so special is that each Breeders Cup Betting race, with the exception of the Breeders Cup Marathon, is worth at least $1 million in Prize money and for the fourteen races it is worth over $25.million. The two day racing extravaganza attracts the best horses from all over the World all in search of the huge prize money and the great prestige of a world championship. The US love to see horses from the UK, Ireland and France taking their chance but we are now seeing entrants from South Africa and all over the World.
Breeders Cup History and Legends
Many great US equine stars have emerged over the years including Ravens Pass, Azeri, A.P. Indy, Alysheba, Cigar, Personal Ensign, Ferdinand, Sunday Silence and Curlin. One of the brightest European stars was the great Ouija Board who won her second title in three years in the Filly and Mare Turf at Churchill Downs in 2006.
