What do you think of the new Breeders' Cup Future Bet?

I love the idea.
It is an interesting novelty but not a serious wager.
It's too early to try to pick those races.

Pool two is now closed and final odds can be viewed below.

The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) has set the fields for this weekend's Breeders' Cup Future Bet Pool Two. This time the races will be the John Deere Breeders' Cup Turf, the Breeders' Cup Mile and the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf. In all 3 races, the mutuel field has been made the morning line favorite with European runners the lowest odds individual horse. Pools will be open August 9-11, from 1:00-7:00 p.m. (ET) each day.

Under Breeders' Cup Future Bet rules, each race will offer pari-mutuel groupings of 23 runners plus one field entry consisting of all horses not in the body of 23 for each respective race. All betting, available at outlets nationwide, will be win-only with a minimum wager amount of $2.00. At the conclusion of wagering on August 11, odds for all entries become final. No refunds are made on horses that do not ultimately compete in their designated races. Arlington Park will serve as the processing hub for all wagers.

The complete Breeders' Cup Future Bet schedule for 2002 is:


Although the field was again the favorite in the Filly & Mare Turf at 5-1, Astra too the most money of any individual horse to close at odds of 6-1. Photo courtesy of Patty Yount.
