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.
