Breeders Cup gambling handicappers will have a fabulous list of horses to chose from led by the first lady of gambling on Breeders Cup excitement with Zenyatta.
The Breeders Cup Classic on Saturday will be telecast by ESPN with a post time of 6:45 PM Eastern. The Classic is one and one quarter miles in length with a total purse of $5 million.
Zenyatta will be the overwhelming favorite in the Classic and she opened at 8-5. Zenyatta has never lost a race in her career and was the winner of the Breeders Cup Classic last year. Mike Smith, one of the elite jockeys in the game, will get the mount.
Blame opened as the second Breeders Cup bet choice at 9-2, while Quality Road opened at 5-1 and Lookin at Lucky was at 6-1.
Blame is coming off a 2nd place finish in the Grade Jockey Cup Gold Cup, which snapped a 5 race winning streak. Blame is no doubt one of the hottest and most appealing horses on the Breeders Cup odds board. Garrett Gomez is slated to get the mount.
Quality Road has won 4 of his last 5 races including his last start in the Grade I Woodward. Prior to that Quality Road finished 2nd to Blame in the Grade Whitney Handicap.
It has truly been a quality road for Quality Road to get to the Breeders Cup Classic as he has won 7 of his 9 last races overall and finished 2nd the other two times. John Velazquez is slated for the mount.
Lookin at Lucky is best known as the beaten favorite of the Kentucky Derby and the winner of the Preakness Stakes. Lookin at Lucky has won his last 3 races including the Grade II Hoosier Derby and the Grade I Haskell. Mike Smith is the scheduled rider.
Zenyatta is coming off a win in the Grade I Lady’s Secret, which was her fifth out of five Grade I wins in 2010. This will be Zenyatta’s final race of her career and she will be an overwhelming sentimental Breeders Cup gambling choice as the most respected and successful horse since Secretariat in 1973.
