William Hill Opens Odds on American Pharoah Winning the "Grand Slam"
On Saturday, American Pharoah became the 12th horse in history to win the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing with a win in the Belmont Stakes. On Saturday, October 31, 2015, American Pharoah may become the first horse to complete a “Grand Slam” with a victory in the 2015 Breeders’ Cup Classic, the richest horse race in North America.
William Hill Race & Sports Book has opened YES/NO Prop wagering on “Will American Pharoah win the 2015 Breeders’ Cup Classic” at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky. The YES opened at 3/1 (+300) with the NO at 5/18 (-360). In the event that American Pharoah does not race in the 2015 Breeders’ Cup Classic, “NO” is the winner.
Bettors can wager on the American Pharoah Grand Slam Prop throughout Nevada at William Hill’s Race & Sports Books and on the Mobile Sports app.
American Pharoah owner and New Jersey resident, Ahmed Zayat shared Monday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Show that the Triple Crown winner’s next race would “probably” be the $1,000,000 William Hill Haskell Invitational on August 2 at Monmouth Park in Oceanport, New Jersey. American Pharoah’s Trainer, Bob Baffert, has won the William Hill Haskell Invitational a record seven times, including last year with Bayern, who went on to win the Breeders’ Cup Classic.
William Hill is the largest Race & Sports Book operator in Nevada and the title sponsor of the $1,000,000 William Hill Haskell Invitational.
