Bet on the fastest horses from all over the world as they meet in Santa Anita, California this year to compete in the Breeders' Cup Races. This exciting horse racing event happens the first weekend of November every year and with $25 million in prize money, it's the richest, most exciting event in sports making most other sporting events look quaint.

The end of year event attracts a lot of interest from Europe as well as the US. Horses go head to head in various grade divisions and distances for some of the biggest purses in horse racing which also makes it one of the best betting opportunities for horseplayers all year. All race tracks that have hosted the Breeders' Cup have been in the United States, except in 1996, when the Breeders' Cup was held at the Woodbine Racetrack in Canada.

Breeders' Cup Betting History

Breeders' Cup reported that approximately $144.3 million was wagered on the World Championships in 2012 at Santa Anita Park which was down slightly from the previous year's figure of $155.5 million when the event was hosted by Churchill Downs, in Louisville, Kentucky. Breeders' Cup officials indicated the handle totals were in line with expectations based on the interruption of service experienced by many east coast pari-mutuel outlets which were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
