Breeders’ Cup Friday At A Glance

29 Oct

Here’s a quick rundown of your Breeders’ Cup Future Stars Friday happenings at Pleasanton OTB.

The OTB doors will open at 9:45 am for Future Stars Friday. The first race from Santa Anita, the $200,000 Marathon Stakes, goes to post at 10:45am. The Future Stars program features five Breeders’ Cup races exclusively for two-year-old horses.

There’s a $500,000 Guaranteed Pick 5 pool covering races 1-5 on Friday’s program. All Pick 5 pools on Breeders’ Cup Friday and Saturday will feature a low 15% takeout, the lowest of any wager on Breeders’ Cup weekend. And any Pick 5 that carries over from Friday or early Saturday, will be added to the Late Pick 5 pool on Saturday.

The Early Pick 5 will cover the following races:

A $1 Million Guaranteed All Breeders’ Cup Late Pick 5 kicks off with the 5th race – the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint and continues with the remaining four races, over which there’s also a $1 Million Guaranteed All Breeders’ Cup Pick 4:

Breakfast will be served between 9 and 11am, with the full Turf Club menu available from 11am to 5pm. We will also be featuring $20 Corona buckets of 5 throughout the day.

If you’re in attendance on Friday, be sure to complete and turn in your complimentary entry to our $1,000 Breeders’ Cup Final 5 Pick ‘Em Contest. If you pick the most winners over Saturday’s Final 5 Breeders’ Cup races, you could win or split $1,000 with all other winners.

If you are attending both Friday and Saturday, you may turn in a second entry on Saturday before post time for the 8th race at Santa Anita, the Breeders’ Cup Sprint at 2:36pm.

Winners will be announced by Sunday, November 3.

There will be three Special 2-Day Daily Doubles linking three Breeders’ Cup races for Friday to three Breeders’ Cup races on Saturday. Look for the Special Daily Doubles in Friday’s race program or on the self service wagering terminals.
