Breeders' Cup: Challenge Races Betting

It is last call for top horses hoping to make it to the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, and we have seven Win and You’re In races on tap on Saturday between Belmont Park and Keeneland.


Breeders' Cup: Challenge Races Picks

There are just 34 days until the Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland on Oct. 30-31 and there are seven key prep races on Saturday, with five “Win and You’re In” races at Santa Anita and two at Belmont Park this afternoon.

Some of the biggest names will be competing including last year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) champion Bayern, who is the 5-2 morning line favorite in the $300,000 Awesome Again (G1) at Santa Anita.


American Pharoah Odds: Breeders Cup

Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, despite tasting defeat in his last outing for the first time since last August, is the solid +250 betting choice in early Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) wagering at BetOnline.

The Bob Baffert trainee was upset as the betting favorite in the Travers (G1) at Saratoga on Aug. 25, beaten three-quarters of a length by Keen Ice, who is currently at +1400 in early Breeders’ Cup Classic betting.


American Pharoah Travers Stakes Odds

Triple Crown winner American Pharoah will be back in action on Saturday as the overwhelming odds favorite in the $1.6 million Travers (G1) at Saratoga. He is the current betting favorite at 1/5 at Bovada.

The Bob Baffert trainee returns just four weeks after his sharp score in the Haskell Invitational (G1) at Monmouth Park on August 2.  Under regular jockey Victor Espinoza, the colt opened up a clear lead in the stretch and won under a hand ride by 2¼ lengths, his eighth consecutive victory.


Horses: Belmont Stakes Betting Odds

Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner American Pharoah will break from the five post on Saturday as he attempts to become the first Triple Crown winner in nearly four decades when he is sent off as the heavy betting favorite in the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes.

The Bob Baffert trainee comes into the Belmont Stakes having won six races in a row by a combined 30 ¼ lengths and is the 10-13 betting favorite at Bovada.


Triple Crown Betting: American Pharoah

With wins in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes under their belts American Pharoah, jockey Victor Espinoza, and trainer Bob Baffert will now get their shot at horse racing's Triple Crown on Saturday in the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park.

American Pharoah won the Kentucky Derby as the betting favorite at Churchill Downs back on May 2, racing past second-place finisher Firing Line and third-place finisher Dortmund for the victory in the first jewel of the Triple Crown. Frosted was fourth, Danzig Moon was fifth, and Materiality was sixth at the Kentucky Derby.


Belmont Stakes: Triple Crown Prop Odds

While American Pharoah is the overwhelming favorite at 5/7 odds to win Saturday’s Belmont Stakes and become the first horse in 37 years to win horse racing’s Triple Crown, there are several other ways for bettors to get in on the wagering action for what could be an historical event.

One of the top props available involves American Pharoah finishing in the Top 3 of the eight-horse Belmont field.


Triple Crown Betting: Belmont History

American Pharoah will be chasing Triple Crown history on Saturday at the Belmont Stakes and odds are good that bettors won’t find a ton of horse betting value on the favored horse.

Only twice in the past 13 failed Triple Crown attempts (where a horse has won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes) has the history-chasing horse gone off at better than even odds.

Charismatic and War Emblem were the only horses to fit that bill for post time betting odds.


Gambling Debts for Am Pharoah Owner?

Ahmed Zayat, owner of Zayat Stables which campaigns Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner American Pharoah, is being sued in United States District Court in New Jersey by former associate Howard Rubinsky, who claims Zayat racked up gambling losses at an offshore sportsbook totaling between $1.6 and $2 million.

American Pharoah is the current even money betting favorite at Bovada for the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 6.


Horse Racing: Preakness Stakes Odds

Raceday odds to win the Preakness Stakes at the online sportsbooks continue to have American Pharoah as the clear favorite, with challengers Firing Line and Dortmund jockeying for the second spot on the odds list.

At Bovada American Pharoah remains the 10/13 favorite on the odds to win the 2015 Preakness Stakes on Saturday morning, with Firing Line at 17/4 and Dortmund at 9/2 on those betting lines for the second jewel in the Triple Crown.
