LEXINGTON, Ky. – This weekend marks the 37th annual Breeders’ Cup Classic from historic Keeneland racetrack in Lexington.

The world of horse racing is focusing on the big race this Saturday, as well as betting odds leading up to the event.

The Breeders’ Cup is the premier event of the North American thoroughbred horse racing year and will feature 14 races across two days. The biggest of those races will be the Breeders’ Cup Classic, which features ten of the best racehorses currently in action.

The Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic is the biggest of the many races held at the event over the weekend, and features a $6 million prize purse. This price makes it the richest single event purse in American racing, with the winner receiving around $3.3 million of that pot.

The race can be seen this Saturday on NBC at 5:00 p.m. EST, with earlier race coverage available on NBCSN leading up to the Classic.

Betting odds for the race are already available, with some big names dotting the boards of the major online sportsbooks.

The No. 8 horse, Improbable, comes in as the early favorite to win the race, followed by Tiz The Law, Maximum Security, Authentic, and Tom’s D’Etat.

Horse racing bettors will certainly remember Tiz The Law, who had a Triple Crown bid earlier this year after dominating the US circuit and winning the Belmont Stakes.

Tiz The Law was the big favorite at the Kentucky Derby, but ultimately couldn’t make up the ground on the second turn at Churchill Downs. The horse that ended Tiz The Law’s dreams of a crown was Authentic, who is also in the field this Saturday.

In terms of value, Authentic is a great choice at +550, as is Tom’s D’Etat at that same number. Bettors looking to swing big should avoid the big payouts of the longshots in this race, as the top five or so horses can really separate themselves from the pack.

Nevertheless, it is sure to be a proud display of pageantry and tradition when the horses take the track this weekend at the Breeder’s Cup.
