Most sports bettors would agree that the Kentucky Derby is the biggest betting race of the year. However, the biggest betting event of the year in horse racing is the Breeders’ Cup. This year’s event will take place on Friday, Nov. 6 and Saturday, Nov. 7 at Keeneland Racecourse in Lexington, Kentucky.
The Breeders’ Cup consists of 14 different races with a total combined prize purse of $31 million. That is bound to attract quite a bit of attention from your betting base. The five races on Friday’s card are highlighted by the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. This event features the up-and-coming two year old Thoroughbreds leading the way on the early 2021 Kentucky Derby Trail.
Saturday’s card at Keeneland offers nine races to bet on. The day ends with the $6 million BC Classic. This 1 ¼-mile run on dirt features the best racing horses in the world. Headlining the 2020 edition are Thoroughbred champions such as Maximum Security, Improbable and Tiz the Law.
With this much action on the board, the Breeders’ Cup is an excellent way to generate some added revenue. Private bookies aligned with Real Bookies as their pay per head provider are in the best position to cash in.

Betting on horse through your racebook software is very similar to a day at the track. The betting options remain the same and the actual payouts are based on live track odds.
You can also build some added horse betting action through Real Bookies’ options designed for your sportsbook.
For example, you can post futures odds to win each of the 14 Breeders’ Cup events. Your players can lock in a winner on your posted futures odds as opposed to the live odds at the track. This offers a guaranteed return on all winners.
The best way to attract horse betting business through your sportsbook is head-to-head matchup odds for all 14 events. The winning horse simply has to finish in a better position than the horse they are pitted against.
