The Cup is Coming

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 9/15/2010 6:30:34 PM

Hard to believe, but the Breeders’ Cup is less than 8 weeks away and in that time frame, I’ll try to provide enough information in this space for all of us to make some cash.

The action kicks off Friday November 5 and continues through Saturday and you can’t tell the players without knowing the race line-up so let’s start with the obvious.

The Friday action will be under the lights for the first time in history with an initial BC post of a little after 4 p.m.

The BC World Championships consist of 14 Graded races with purses and awards for the two days totaling $26 million. The Championships are non-invitational; any thoroughbred competing in the world that meets the eligibility requirements may pre-enter.

Each race is limited to fourteen starters and if the race has more than 14 horses pre-enter and a field selection format is used to determine the starters for each race.

The pre-entry deadline for the 2010 Championships is Noon, Monday, October 25, 2010. All horses that want to compete in the Championships must be pre-entered by this date. This is followed by the entry deadline on Tuesday, November 2, 2010, which closes promptly at 10:00 a.m.

As of yet, the race order for the battles has not been solidified but the ladies usually take center stage on Friday and 6 races will likely be carded.

The BC Marathon at a mile and three quarters on dirt has the softest purse, a mere $500,000.

Million dollar races on Friday will consist of the Juvenile Fillies Turf at a mile and the Filly & Mare Sprint at 7 furlongs.

There are three $2 million races Friday and they are the Juvenile Fillies at a mile and a sixteenth. the Ladies Classic at 9 furlongs and the Filly & Mare Turf at a mile and three eighths.

That leaves 8 for Saturday and the million-dollar races are the Juvenile Turf at a mile, the Dirt Mile and the Turf Sprint at 5 furlongs.

Those that will compete for the $2 million pots on Saturday will race in three events, the Juvenile at 8 and a half furlongs, the Mile on grass and the Sprint at 6 furlongs.

Grass marathoners shoot for the $3 million prize in the Turf at a mile and a half and the grand daddy of them all, the Classic at a mile and a quarter with a $5 million jackpot at the end of the rainbow.

It’s never too early to prepare for this extravaganza and as the cast will be in flux right up until post time, those connections that have a plan and a map for their horse are generally the barns that get rewarded with the money.

As the days dwindle down to crunch time, I’ll try to isolate horses that are hot or cold coming into the final training stages and those that have also shown an affinity for the local main track and turf course.

Get your popcorn out, buckle up and let’s hope we all get lucky.
