How to Bet

Just as the races themselves reach a crescendo at the final turn, the on-track betting windows become incredibly busy the closer we get to post time.

 

So, if you’re new to all this, it may be best to pick out your Breeders’ Cup contenders early and head to the betting window as soon as you can. You can revisit it at any time should you want to place more wagers on the race.

 

Naturally you don’t have to wait until the big day to place your wager at all. Our friends at TVG are our official betting partners so you can check out their Breeders’ Cup odds any time you like!

 

If you are betting at the track, all you need to do to place your bet is follow these steps:

Amount You Want to Bet

Minimum for Win, Place, and Show bets is normally $2. Exotic Bets usually start at $1.
