In this day and age not many horses are built to go a mile and a half on the grass and still live long enough to tell about but that is what the successful online betting Breeders’ Cup Turf winners have done in the past as the stout of the breed shoot for the $2 million purse.

Over the decades, the Turf has been run according to form for the most part as going into last year favorites had won 35% and were in the money 58% of the time.

Last year English invader Dangerous Midge got an ideal 2-home trip to win inching away at 8 and a half to one.

Also a European based runner has won 5 of the last 6 Turf renewals held at Churchill.

So, at least we have a sports betting blue print about what may happen this season.

Sea Moon will come into the Turf relatively fresh. He is a true stayer, was a good third going a mile and three quarters in a recent race when trouble. Sea Moon figures to get plenty of support at the windows.

Connections of Midday have options but if this runner shows here he’ll need a rebound race after being left with too much work to do in the Champion Stakes.

Sarafina had run four bang-up races before a dull try in her last. She has only beaten small fields but is a true stayer.

Await the Dawn is out to make amends after the flop as chalk and he likes to win as his 5 for 7 slate suggests.

Brilliant Speed may be pitched too high while Dean’s Kitten, who ran his eyes out in defeat in the Grade 1 Joe Hirsch recently, seems to be on the improve and is in the good hands of Mike Maker.

Meeznah would be a sportsbooks surprise here as the Marathon is his preferred race but he can run all day and is coming off an even effort.

Stately Victor is another Maker charge but appears totally overmatched here while Teaks North could be overlooked. He won a Grade 1 to kick off the year, proved it was no fluke taking the Grade 1 United Nations at Monmouth but will need to improve and is facing his archrival in Winchester.

Winchester just did not fire in the Turf Classic as he may have not cared for the yielding course and he could get away on the tote board.

When a horse is able to win half his starts, it speaks of quality and that’s the case with St Nicholas Abbey. He took a Group 1 at a mile and a half in June and beat better than half the field home in the Arc.

One thing that online bettors should be open to in this race is to think about some of the second-tier Europeans. Some of those second stringers just might be as good as the Americans have to offer and that could be the place to go in the gimmicks.
