Michael Dempsey’s Breeders’ Cup Report $34.95 (Fri-Sat)

Michael’s Breeders’ Cup Report includes his selections, analysis, fair odds line, and wagering recommendations for every race on the Friday and Saturday card from Santa Anita Park on Nov. 1-2.

The Breeders’ Cup offers 14 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.

History of The Breeders’ Cup

History of The Breeders’ Cup

The brainchild of thoroughbred owner and breeder John Gaines, the Breeders’ Cup was founded in April of 1982, and in the last three decades has developed into the most prestigious events in horse racing, now a year end championship event.

First a one day event with seven races and $10 million in purses, the Breeders’ Cup has expanded over the last decade, and is now run over two days.

This year’s running at Churchill Downs will include 15 championship races with $26 million in purses, encompassing nearly every division in racing, from a five furlong sprint on turf to a 1 ¾ mile marathon on dirt.

While the Kentucky Derby still attracts more mainstream attention in the media, for horseplayers there is nothing that compares to wagering on 15 championship races with mostly full fields and the best horses from the U.S. and abroad over the two-day championship event.

Many horses will earn their way into a Breeders’ Cup race by winning a Breeders’ Cup Challenge “Win and You’re In” race.

In 2011 there are 68 Breeders’ Cup Challenge races, run at various racetracks throughout the world.

European horses have fared well shipping to the U.S. for the Breeders’ Cup, including the outstanding Goldikova, who has won the last three runnings of the Breeders’ Cup Mile, beating males.

Goldikova will go for an unprecedented fourth Mile win in 2011.

The brilliant mare is trained by Freddy Head, the only person to ride and train a Breeders’ Cup winner. Head piloted Miesque, who won the Mile in 1987 and 1988.

One of the most memorable overseas shippers to win a Breeders’ Cup race was in 1993 when Arcangues pulled off the biggest upset in Breeders’ Cup history, winning the Classic and returning $269.20 for a $2 wager.

The great mare Zenyatta became the first female to win the Classic with her popular win in 2009, and her return to the Classic to face the boys again in 2010 with a perfect record in 19 starts was one of the most anticipated races in Breeders’ Cup history.

Her valiant late run to come up just a heady short of catching Blame will go down as one of the most exciting Breeders’ Cup races of all time, and helped her win the 2010 Eclipse Award for Horse of the Year.

Churchill Downs will host the 2011 Breeders’ Cup for the eighth time on Nov. 4-5.
