Curlin odds to win 2008 Breeders Cup, betting odds on Curlin

 It's time to close the horse racing year once again with the Breeders Cup horse racing events and considering the excitement surrounding Curlin, we have compiled a brief selection of the odds offered on this prized contender. There is little doubt that as the top favorite of the 2008 Breeders' Cup Classic, Curlin will be the most bet on horse this weekend and the sportsbooks are busy creating various odds on the thoroughbred racehorse. But before we look at the odds on Curlin, here is some information on the competitor.

 Curlin was foaled March 25, 2004 in Kentucky, sired by Smart Strike, a former star from the Sam-Son Farm racing team in Ontario and is out of the mare Sherriff's Deputy, a daughter of Canadian Horse of the Year and two-time North American Champion sire, Deputy Minister. The name of the 4-year-old colt comes from Charles Curlin, an African American slave from western Kentucky. Curlin's fame came after the colt won the 2007 Preakness Stakes on May 19, beating the Kentucky Derby winner and favorite Street Sense by a head, after finishing third in the Kentucky Derby, following Street Sense and Hard Spun. But Curlin really proved himself after beating Hard Spun to the finish of the 2007 Breeders' Cup by 4¾ lengths. The last year's Breeders' Cup was the last time Curlin raced as 3-year-old. In 2008 Curlin began his 4-year-old career at the 2008 Dubai World Cup, defeating a field of five by 2 1⁄4 lengths and earning the short odds the sportsbooks are offering on the colt for the 2008 Breeders Cup Classic, set to start in less than 2 days.

 Which takes us to the main part - the odds on Curlin in the 2008 Breeders Cup event. Curlin is currently the ultimate favorite to win the Saturday race with extra short odds 13/8 at the online racebook BodogLife, compare with the second favorite odd at 8/1. And now that you know Curlin offers little value when bet outright to win the Breeders Cup, let's look at what else is out there to bet on. At BodogLife you can bet on Breeders Cup Classic and Breeders Cup Ladies Classic Double Result, where Curlin - Zenyatta duo is favorite with odds 3/1, a much improved payout over the 13/8 odds. Here are more prop betting odds on Curlin, as posted by the online racebook BodogLife:

Who will be in the lead after the first quarter of the Breeders Cup Classic?

If Curlin wins the Breeders Cup Classic will he break the Santa Anita track record for 1 1/4 miles?
