Breeders' Cup Betting Online: The Triple Crown is fantastic, but the best two days of the year for horse racing betting action is at the Breeders' Cup. We know that at BookMaker Sportsbook, and we are pumped to take a look at the Breeders' Cup Marathon race, which should be one of the most exciting races on the crowded docket.
Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, CA is going to be the home of the 2013 Breeders' Cup. We're breaking down the horse racing betting odds like no other for the Breeders' Cup Marathon race, which will go to post at approximately 4:45 p.m. ET on Friday, November 1st.
They say that the Belmont Stakes is the "Test of Champions," but we know that the real test of the stamina of a horse is to go 1 3/4 miles on the dirt here at Santa Anita in the Breeders' Cup Marathon. Few will ultimately enter, and even fewer will really survive to tell about the final few furlongs in what truly is a marathon of a race. The track record for this race is just 2:52.80, and that record was set 63 years ago. Don't be shocked if this turns out to be a race that has nearly three minutes put on the board for it, which is an eternity to wait for those who make horse racing betting picks on the first race of the Breeders' Cup.
There isn't much in the way of horses that are in this field this year that ran in the Breeders' Cup Marathon last year, but Commander gave it a run and finished ninth, a whopping 44 1/2 lengths off of the pace. We have seen Commander have a lot of success since that point, winning four out of five races since the start of the summer. Is he ready to take on the monster known as the Marathon? We aren't all that sure, but we know that none of these other ponies have had a chance to contend on the horse racing betting lines at this long of a distance.
Next, we look at horses who have some distance in them or have run well in longer turf races. Ever Rider and Indian Jones meet the billing for that, but there is a huge question as to whether either of these ponies are set to run against the big boys here in the States. Ever Rider is an Argentine horse who has never left his home country before this one. He did win a Grade II race at 1 9/16 miles back in June, but he hasn't run since then, and that could be problematic.
Indian Jones has never won a graded race in his life. He did run second best in the Grade II Greenwold Cup in September at 1 1/2 miles in what amounted to be the best run of his career. He has never gone longer than that, though we should point out that his races at a mile or less have been his worst races in his career.
Old Time Hockey only has three wins in 17 races in his career, but he is a turf horse who is used to running at these long distances. Flipping from the turf to the synthetic of Santa Anita Park isn't the toughest transition in the world, but it might be one that proves to be favorable for Old Time Hockey to stand a fighting chance of beating the horse racing betting odds in the Marathon.
