The 2015 Breeders Cup Classic features a great field of horses that includes 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah who will almost certainly be the heavy betting favorite in the race. American Pharoah, though, has not run since he lost the Travers Stakes as a heavy favorite at the end of August at Saratoga.
American Pharoah is also facing older horses for the first time in the 2015 Breeders Cup Classic which makes him a vulnerable favorite in the race. Here is a list of ways you can try to get rich betting the Breeders Cup Classic in 2015. Always keep in mind that betting on horse racing is gambling and nothing is guaranteed when you gamble.
1. Bet the super high five
To win a super high five bet you have to have the first five finishers in the race in exact order. Not an easy bet to win but if you hit you can become rich. Since this bet was introduced in 2008, the wager has paid an average of $50,156 for each winning $1 bet in the Breeders Cup Classic. In the 2011 Breeders Cup Classic, the super high five paid a whopping $156,424 for each winning $1 ticket.
2. Bet the superfecta
To win the superfecta bet you have to have the first four finishers in a race in exact order. Another tough bet to hit but it’s easier than the super high five and superfectas can sometimes pay enormous amounts of money for a small wager. In 1999, the winning superfecta for the Breeders Cup Classic paid a whopping $692,907 for each $1 winning ticket. Some people got rich betting the supefecta that year at the Breeders Cup Classic.
3. Bet the trifecta
To win the trifecta you have to have first three finishers in a race in exact order. A much easier bet to win than the super high five or the superfecta. Because it’s an easier bet to win the trifecta will pay less than those two bets but it can still pay a lot for a small wager. In 1999, the winning trifecta on the Breeders Cup Classic race paid $39,031.20 for each winning $2 ticket. You can’t retire on that but who would complain about that payout?
4. Bet against American Pharoah
If American Pharoah is the betting favorite in the Breeders Cup Classic and he does not win than another horse could possibly pay a big price to win. In 1993, Arcangues won the Breeders Cup Classic and paid a record $269.20 when heavy favorite Bertando ran second. In 2002, Volponi paid $89.00 when he won the race and favorite Medaglia d’Oro ran second. The field is not that large in 2015 but if American Pharoah is the favorite and he does not win the 2015 Breeders Cup Classic another horse could pay a decent price.
