Breeders Cup gambling will include the Breeders Cup Dirt Mile on Saturday November 6 as everyone gambling on Breeders Cup races can tune into ABC for this 2:30 PM Eastern event.
The Breeders Cup Dirt Mile is a one mile Grade I race worth $1 million. Dakota Phone leads the division standings in this class and will be among the favorites to take the Dirt Mile that will include 2009 Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird in the field.
Dakota Phone will enter the race as a Breeders Cup bet favorite based largely on recent runs that included a win at Del Mar in the Grade II San Diego Handicap on July 31. Dakota Phone also finished in the money with a show in the Grade I Pacific Classic, also at Del Mar on August 28.
Dakota Phone last ran in the Grade I Goodwood at Hollywood on October 2 and finished 3rd.
Mine That Bird may be a past Kentucky Derby winner but is not likely to be much of a favorite with the Breeders Cup odds as that is the last race the gelding has ever won and he has not even finished in the money in his last 5 starts. Mine That Bird last ran on September 4 in the Grade I Woodward at Saratoga and finished 7th.
Thiskyhasnolimit will be a popular choice with gamblers as he has the hot hand as of late with a 2nd place showing in the October 2 Grade II Indiana Derby and win in the September 6 Smarty Jones.
Mad Flatter is 3rd in the standings and is likely to garner some Breeders Cup gambling attention. Mad Flatter is coming off a win in the October 16 Grade III Spend A Buck. Prior to that Mad Flatter finished third in the Grade III Washington Park handicap on September 4.
Mad Flatter was a winner in an August 6 allowance race to make it 3 out of 3 in the money in his last 3 starts.
Gayego has been pointing for this race for quite some time and is coming off a win in the Presque Isle Mile on September 10.
