2007 Breeders Cup Classic betting odds and top contenders

A few days left until the start of the 2007 Breeder's Cup World Championship and we look at the top contenders and their betting odds to win the race.

2007 Breeders Cup Classic betting odds and top contenders A few days left until the gates open at the 2007 Breeders Cup Classic and now is the best time for bettors all over the world to join in on the action. Let's take a look at who the top contenders are for the 2007 Breeders Cup and for the $5 million purse, as posted on the horse racing betting website Bodog Racing (new window). There are plenty of familiar thoroughbreds here which were favorite contenders for the Triple Crown not too long ago.

 The top favorite by betting odds is once again Curlin with odds to win the 2007 Breeders Cup Classic at 3/1. Curlin earned an automatic bid into the Breeders Cup Classic when he finished a neck ahead of Lawyer Ron in a stretch dual in the Grade I Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont Park. In August Curlin was the favorite but finished third in the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park behind Any Given Saturday and Hard Spun. His best achievement this year was winning the 2007 Preakness Stakes on May 19. Trainer is Steve Asmussen.

 But Lawyer Ron will be tough competitor for the 2007 Breeders Cup, listed also with odds 3/1 on winning next Sunday.  At the beginning Bob Holthus was training Lawyer Ron, but since October last year his new trainer is Todd Pletcher. Recently Lawyer Ron won the Woodward Stakes and a few weeks prior won the 2007 Whitney Stakes by setting a track record. In 2006 Lawyer Ron finished 9th at the Breeders Cup Classic at Churchill Downs.

 "Any Given Saturday" is back in the game as the third best bet at Bodog, the odds are paying out 7/2. He is another thoroughbred trained by Todd Pletcher, with record 6-2-1 and earnings over $1 million. On August 5th at Monmouth Park Any Given Saturday won the Grade I Haskell Invitational Handicap by beating Curlin and Hard Spun by over four lengths. Any Given Saturday also won the Brooklyn Handicap in August by two and a half lengths.

 Right now those were the top three contenders with best odds on winning the 2007 Breeder's Cup Classic. Other good bets include Street Sense listed at 4/1, Hard Spun at 6/1 and George Washington with odds 10/1. We will continue to follow the latest developments and odds change for the 2007 Breeders Cup World Championship and publish them as they come.
