Breeders’ Cup Saturday At A Glance

29 Oct

The OTB doors open at 8:45am for Breeders’ Cup Championship Saturday at Santa Anita. As is the case on Friday, breakfast will be served until 11am. $20 Corona Buckets of 5 will be on sale throughout Breeders’ Cup weekend.

The first race on the 12-race Breeders’ Cup program goes to post at 10:07am. While there isn’t a guaranteed pool for the Early Pick 5, it bears repeating that all Pick 5 pools on Breeders’ Cup Friday and Saturday will have just a 15% takeout, returning more winnings to players than any other wager over the two Championship programs.

The Early Pick 5 will consist of the following races:

1 – $100,000 Senator Ken Maddy Stakes, 5 1/2F Turf, 10:07am (9 horses)
2 – $100,000 Damascus Stakes, 7F Dirt, 10:42am (5)
3 – $100,000 Twilight Derby, 1 1/8M Turf, 11:17am (13)
4 – $1,000,000 BC Filly and Mare Sprint, 7F Dirt, 11:55am (9) – Early Pick 4 (4-7)
5 – $1,000,000 BC Turf Sprint, 5F Turf, 12:33pm (14)

The sixth race on the card falls between the major guaranteed pools, but does kick off an All Breeders’ Cup Middle Pick 4.

6 – BC Dirt Mile, 1M Dirt, 1:10pm (10) – Mid Pick 4 (6-9)

The $1 Million Guaranteed Breeders’ Cup Ultra Pick 6 takes place over races 7-12. It is a $1 minimum wager and will be a mandatory payout after the 12th race.

Both the Late Pick 5 and Late Pick 4 will feature $2 Million Guaranteed pools. All Pick 4 and Pick 5 wagers may be played for 50-cents per combo.

7 – $2,000,000 BC Filly & Mare Turf, 1 1/4M Turf, 1:54pm (12) – Pick 6 (7-12)
8 – $2,000,000 BC Sprint, 6F Dirt, 2:36pm (10) – Late Pick 5 (8-12)

9 – $2,000,000 BC Mile, 1M Turf, 3:20pm (16) – Late Pick 4 (9-12)
10 – $2,000,000 BC Distaff, 1 1/8M Dirt, 4:00pm (11)
11 – $4,000,000 BC Turf, 1 1/2M Turf, 4:40pm (12)
12 – $6,000,000 BC Classic, 1 1/4M Dirt, 5:44pm (11)
