Breeders’ Cup Classic Favorite Arrogate Looking to Get Back on Track

His seven-race winning streak snapped in his last start, Arrogate looks to get back on track as the even money betting favorite for Saturday’s $1-million Pacific Classic (G1) at Del Mar.

Arrogate is the current even money favorite in early Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) wagering at Bovada and was installed as the even money morning line favorite for the Pacific Classic, taking on seven foes including Accelerate, who wired the field in the San Diego Handicap (G2) on July 22.

The Bob Baffert trainee came into the San Diego riding a seven-race winning streak that included victories in the Grade 1 Travers, Breeders’ Cup Classic, Pegasus World Cup and Dubai World Cup, making him the richest racehorse in North American history and in just eight career starts.

He was sent off at odds of 1-20 in the San Diego but did not fire, checking in fourth and beaten 15 1/4 lengths, with no apparent excuse.

Meanwhile, Gun Runner, his main rival for this year’s Classic, won the Whitney (G1) at Saratoga on Aug. 5 and has narrowed the gap in early Classic betting, down to 3-1.

The question for Arrogate is whether he can bounce back taking on a strong field in the Pacific Classic that includes Accelerate and the Baffert-trained Collected, coming off a career-best effort in winning the Precisionist (G3) at Santa Anita by 14 lengths on June 24.

The question horseplayers must ask is whether the trip to Dubai took the starch out of the colt. He earned Beyer Speed Figures of 122-120-119 in his last three starts before the Dubai World Cup, then ran down Gun Runner in the stretch in a spectacular effort.

However, getting beaten 15 1/4 lengths and earning a Beyer of 85 is alarming to those who backed the colt in early Classic betting at a very short price.

Baffert is a Hall of Fame trainer and has put in three solid works into the colt since his disappointing effort and all indications are he is going to bounce back with a much better effort, but again his price is going to be short.

The Pacific Classic is a “Win and You’re In” race for the Breeders’ Cup Classic and will be televised live on the NBC Sports Network at 8 p.m. ET.

Arrogate and Songbird are strong favorites for this fall’s Breeders’ Cup and both will be in action this month.

Songbird is the 2-1 betting favorite at Bovada for the Breeders’ Cup Distaff (G1) on Nov. 3 at Del Mar and will be in action on Saturday as the heavy favorite in the $750,000 Delaware Handicap (G1).

Arrogate is getting hammered in early betting for the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) on Nov. 4 at Del Mar, his current odds down to 1/2. The colt will be in action next week as the short-priced favorite in the $200,000 San Diego Handicap (G2) at Del Mar.

The Delaware Handicap drew a field of six, and it will be tough to go against Songbird, who was installed as the 1/5 morning line favorite. The Jerry Hollendorfer trainee will have Hall of Fame rider Mike Smith in the irons.

She won her first 11 career starts and put in perhaps her career-best effort in defeat in last fall’s Breeders’ Cup Distaff where she was beaten a nose by the champion Beholder.

She rebounded off her first career defeat by winning the Ogden Phipps (G1) at Belmont Park by a length in her first start off a seven-month layoff.

With this year’s Breeders’ Cup at Del Mar, it is very likely Arrogate will not leave Southern California.

The Bob Baffert trainee has won seven of his eight career starts and won the two richest races in the world to start his year — the Pegasus World Cup (G1) and the Dubai World Cup (G1).

After the San Diego, the next logical spot would be the Pacific Classic (G1) at Del Mar on Aug. 19.

Gun Runner and Always Dreaming are the co-second choices in early Breeders’ Cup Classic wagering at Bovada.

Gun Runner was second in the Dubai World Cup and returned to the U.S. to win the Stephen Foster Handicap (G1) at Churchill Downs on June 17.

Always Dreaming has not started since running a disappointing eighth in the Preakness Stakes (G1) after winning the Kentucky Derby (G1) in his prior outing.

His trainer Todd Pletcher said his next start will likely come in the Jim Dandy (G2) at Saratoga on July 29, which could be a prep for the Travers Stakes (G1) on Aug. 26.

The 14-horse Classic field showcases the best contenders of the season.

Four Horse of the Year candidates are running, including 8/5 betting favourite Shared Belief, California Chrome, Tonalist and Bayer. Shared Belief was the Eclipse Award champion two-year-old male last year and a winner of seven straight races to begin his career. He missed the 2014 Triple Crown races with foot problems. Mike Smith will ride the gelding, starting from Post 6. No three-year-old has won the Classic since Raven's Pass in 2008.

California Chrome won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness earlier this year before placing fourth in the Belmont Stakes. The colt starts from Post 13 and is a 13/2 third-favourite. Tonalist (Post 11) won the Belmont Stakes and recently also won the Grade 1 Jockey Gold Cup. Bayern’s ninth place finish in the Preakness Stakes disappointed many, but he has three wins this year. He starts from Post 7 in the 14-horse field.

Led by Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome, Belmont Stakes winner Tonalist, and the undefeated Shared Belief, 15 horses were pre-entered for the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic, the marquee event of the two-day world championships.

201 horses were pre-entered in the 13 Breeders’ Cup races, which will be held on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 at Santa Anita.

Shared Belief is the 7/5 early betting favorite for the Classic according to Breeders’ Cup betting odds released this week by Bovada. The colt is perfect in four starts this year, winning the Awesome Again Stakes over the Santa Anita main track in his last outing.

The price on California Chrome has drifted up to 7/1 after his disappointing sixth place finish in the Pennsylvania Derby in his last start.

Belmont Stakes winner Tonalist added the Jockey Club Gold Cup to his resume and is now the second choice for the Classic at betting odds of 11/2, while Haskell Invitational and Pennsylvania Derby winner Bayern is the third choice for the Classic at odds of 13/2.

There are five Breeders’ Cup winners from last year back in action. Goldencents (Dirt Mile), Dank (Filly & Mare Turf), Secret Circle (Xpressbet Sprint), and Magician (Longines Turf) are looking for repeats this year while Ria Antonia, last year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Filly winner will look to win the Distaff this year.

Michael Dempsey’s Breeders’ Cup Report $34.95
Michael’s Breeders’ Cup Report for Friday and Saturday includes his selections, analysis, fair odds line, and wagering recommendations for every race on the Friday and Saturday card from Santa Anita Park on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.

The Breeders’ Cup offers 13 championship races over two days, bringing together the best top horses, trainers, and jockeys from around the world, this year to compete at Santa Anita Park.

Last year on Breeders’ Cup Saturday Mike nailed seven recommended exactas, paying $53.20, $19.00, $23.20, $58.00, $66.60, $107.80, and $33.60.

---ARCHIVED ARTICLES---------------------------------------------------------

While all of the key preps are in the books for the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1), there are still 15 Breeders’ Cup Challenge “Win and You’re In” races that serve as preps for the other races on the two-day championship event coming up at Santa Anita on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.

Two-time reigning Horse of the Year Wise Dan will be in action on Saturday at Keeneland as the 4/5 morning line favorite in the $1 million Shadwell Turf Mile (G1). The gelding is currently the 19/10 early favorite for the Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1), a race he won the previous two years.

Among those looking to beat him is Silver Max, who beat him in last year’s Shadwell Turf Mile, which was moved off the turf due to rain and run over the polytrack surface. Silver Max is looking to rebound off a subpar effort in the Fourstardave Handicap (G2) at Saratoga on Aug. 9. The Dale Romans trainee is 9/2 on the morning line and currently at early betting odds of 26/1 for the Breeders’ Cup Mile.

On Sunday, the winner of the $300,000 Santa Anita Sprint Championship (G1) will earn an automatic starting spot in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint.

In the latest Breeders’ Cup future odds released by Bovada, the undefeated three-year-old Shared Belief is the 3/1 betting favorite for the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) on Nov. 1 at Santa Anita.

Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, the colt is perfect in three starts this year after missing the Triple Crown races with foot issues. The colt won the Pacific Classic (G1) over polytrack at Del Mar in his last outing.

Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome is the second choice at 9/2, and the colt will be in action on Saturday. The Art Sherman trainee is the even money morning line favorite for the $1 million Pennsylvania Derby (G2) at Parx Racing.

For selections and analysis of all of the Breeders’ Cup prep races go to Turf ‘n’ Sport.

With Palace Malice now retired and out of the picture for the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) it is the three-year-olds that are taking the early betting action in Classic future wagering.

The last three-year-old to win the Breeders’ Cup Classic was Raven’s Pass at Santa Anita in 2008. The Classic will be contested at Santa Anita on Saturday, Nov. 1.

“With Palace Malice retired, Game On Dude not at his best, and Lea unraced since February, the three-year-old division could dominate this year’s Classic,” stated Michael Dempsey, horse racing handicapper at Turf ‘n’ Sport.

The undefeated Shared Belief, who beat older in the Pacific Classic (G1), is currently listed as the Breeders’ Cup Classic betting favorite at odds of +250 at BetOnline.

Foot issues knocked the colt off the Triple Crown trail after he started off his career winning all three starts as a juvenile including the CashCall Futurity (G1).  He is perfect in three starts this year, an allowance win, a victory in the Los Alamitos Derby (G2) and then his win in the Pacific Classic.

The Pacific Classic was a Breeders’ Cup Challenge “Win and You’re In” race for the Classic. The colt earned an automatic starting spot and paid expenses for the race.

Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, the colt will make one more start before the Classic. He is scheduled to go in the Awesome Again Stakes (G1) at Santa Anita on September 27.

Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome is the second choice in early Classic betting at +650. The colt got a break after failing in his Triple Crown bid in the Belmont Stakes where he finished in a dead heat for fourth.

The Art Sherman trainee will make his final prep for the Classic in the Pennsylvania Derby (G2) at Parx Racing on Sept 20.

Other three-year-olds that could be factors in the Classic include Wicked Strong (+2000), V.E. Day (+2200) and Tonalist (+2500).

Among the older horses, Itsmyluckyday (+1350) has been taking some betting action after turning the tables on Moreno (+1500) in the Woodward (G1) at Saratoga on Aug. 30.

Last year’s Classic runner up Will Take Charge is currently listed at betting odds of +1100. The D. Wayne Lukas trainee came up a tough nose short behind Mucho Macho Man, who is now retired.

Game On Dude, who was the beaten favorite in the last two runnings of the Classic, is currently listed at +1400.

The biggest horse racing weekend of 2013 is not the Kentucky Derby, it's the Breeders' Cup - and betting on these races is growing into one of the most popular events of the year.

Known as the Breeders' Cup World Championship, the weekend features the best horses from around the world clashing in 14 races. In 2013, the races are being held at historic Santa Anita Park.

While not all the horses are known for the cards, several online racebooks have already posted Breeders' Cup future betting lines on the biggest race of the weekend - the Breeders' Cup Classic. Currently, Bovada has Game On Dude as the 2/1 favorite in this one, with Kentucky Derby winner Orb and Preakness Stakes winner Palace Malice further back in the pack.

The second betting choices as of Oct. 17 are Fort Larned and Will Take Charge, each at 5/1.

The event attracts the best horses and trainers with the biggest purses of the year. Fully 13 of the races have $1 million or higher purses and the Classic winner earns $5 million.

Check out the Classic odds below and check out a site devoted to Breeders' Cup odds closer to post time on Nov. 1 when the full morning line odds will be available.

Other Breeders' Cup races include the Juvenile, which puts next year's Derby contenders on display early. However, there has been a hex associated with winning the Breeders' Cup juvenile as this winner very rarely goes on to win the Derby. Street Sense was one of the few recent winners to pull off this prestigious double.
