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.


Belmont Stakes Betting Trends

The $1.5-million Belmont Stakes (G1) can be a tricky race to find a winner as none of the three-year-olds set to run in the third jewel of the Triple Crown have traveled the 1½-mile test on the main track at Belmont Park.

Classic Empire is the 2-1 early betting favorite at Bovada and is seeking to improve off his fourth in the Kentucky Derby (G1) and runner-up finish in the Preakness Stakes (G1).


Belmont Stakes Odds Update: Race Wide Open With Classic Empire Defection

The $1.5-million Belmont Stakes (G1) on Saturday at Belmont Park has become a wide open affair after the defection of early betting favorite Classic Empire, who is out with a reoccurrence of a foot abscess he suffered earlier this year.

Irish War Cry has inherited the role as the early betting favorite for the race at Bovada at 3-1. The Graham Motion trainee will be making his first start since a disappointing 10th-place finish in the Kentucky Derby (G2).

Preakness Stakes Odds: Always Dreaming Draws Four Post, 4-5 Chalk for Preakness

A field of 10 will head to the gate on Saturday in the $1.5-million Preakness Stakes (G1) at Pimlico, but only one has a shot at Triple Crown glory, and his backers are going to have to take a short price.

Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Always Dreaming drew the four post and was installed as the 4-5 morning line favorite for the second jewel of the Triple Crown, and his odds remain at 4-5 at Bovada in early Preakness wagering.


Preakness Stakes Betting Trends & Facts

The Preakness Stakes (G1) at Pimlico is fast approaching with Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Always Dreaming seeking to keep his Triple Crown hopes alive.

Disputa é também conhecida como "os dois minutos mais empolgantes do esporte"; derby acontece sempre no primeiro sábado de maio de cada ano.

A série de três anos de barbadas no Kentucky Derby tem tudo para chegar ao fim neste sábado (06), no hipódromo de Churchill Downs, em Louisville (EUA). A corrida deste ano não conta com um favorito claro, apesar de que há um consenso geral de que o puro-sangue Classic Empire deve se sagrar como o vencedor desta que é uma das provas mais importantes do turfe mundial.
