"Year after year racing fans around the world know they’re going to find great horses on the track and exceptional value in the betting pools. The Championships give both the novice and the big player a chance to cash big tickets on their investment. With fractional bet levels at ten cents for superfectas and 50 cents for trifectas, Pick 3s and Pick 4, this betting menu should appeal to fans at every level. In four of the last 11 years, Breeders’ Cup has produced million dollar payouts in the Ultra Pick 6,” said Ken Kirchner, President of FalKirk International and the manager of the Breeders' Cup wagering and simulcasting operations for the last 14 years.


Each Breeders' Cup World Championships race will feature a maximum of 14 horses and wagering interests. In addition to the standard Win, Place and Show betting, there will be Exacta and Trifecta wagering on every race and rolling Pick 3 wagers beginning with the first race and continuing through all races on both Championship Friday and Championship Saturday. Among the featured wagers returning this year are:

· The Breeders' Cup Jockey Bet. Wagers will be offered on the jockey who has the most wins in the 14 Breeders' Cup Championships races over the two-day event. The wager will open for advance betting on Thursday, November 4, and will close prior to the running of the Breeders’ Cup Marathon on Friday. A morning line will be published.


· Each day's Breeders' Cup Ultra Pick Six wager will have a guaranteed pool and feature only Championships races. Friday's Ultra Pick 6 will have a guaranteed gross pool of $750,000 and Saturday's Ultra Pick 6 will feature a $2 million guaranteed gross pool. If no one hits the Friday Ultra Pick 6, the pool will carry over into Saturday's Ultra Pick 6. The wager is a mandatory payout at the end of the Saturday program.


· A Daily Double wager linking the Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic on Friday to the Breeders' Cup Classic on Saturday will also be offered. Last year’s inaugural “Classic Double” of Ladies’ Classic winner Life is Sweet and Classic winner Zenyatta paid $92.60.
