Breeders Cup Betting OddsThe Sport of Kings is often only spoken about a few times per year in mainstream sports betting, but the Breeders' Cup is the only time that horses not running in the Triple Crown races get any real notoriety whatsoever. This collection of races dates back to 1984 and is also known as the "world championships" of horse racing.

The Breeders' Cup is held at a different track every year, generally in the United States. This time, all of the action takes place at famed Santa Anita Park on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5. NBC Sports Network will have all of the coverage of the races on Friday and most of them on Saturday, though the Breeders' Cup Classic will be shown live on NBC.

The Breeders' Cup continues to grow and add races to its repertoire on an annual basis. This event was once just four races, and it has grown as high as 14 over two full days of racing in any given year.

What makes the Breeders' Cup so unique is the fact that horses come from all over the world to run in these races. Though not all of the races involve qualifiers from overseas, there are races which can be run in various countries throughout the world which grant winners automatic access into the Breeders' Cup. These are known as the "Win and You're In" races, and several dozen are held each year in the United States as well across the various disciplines of the Breeders' Cup.

Just earning one's way into any of the Breeders' Cup races is quite the challenge. Winning is something else entirely. Horses are very rarely odds-on favorites at the Breeders' Cup in any of the races, and even if there are ponies who are expected to dominate, that rarely is the case. Remember that, with the exception of the juvenile races, the rest are open to racers of all ages, and the boys races typically feature some of the best fillies and mares in the world as well.
