Releases Updated Odds for the 2015 Breeders’ Cup

LEXINGTON, Ky.--()--US Racing (, an international online horse racing service, today released the updated odds of the 31st Breeders’ Cup to be held at Keeneland Race Course on October 30th and 31st.

“American Pharoah is the betting favourite with good reason,” said James Maxwell of US Racing. “Can the Triple Crown winner round out his career winning the Classic? The public loves him but we’ve observed several punters backing Beholder. Keen Ice and Frosted could surprise, as well,” he added.

Derek Simon, US Racing’s editor and handicapper, has no doubt of the value found in Beholder and Smooth Roller—and he makes his case with statistics compiled from every Breeders’ Cup race run from 1997-2014.

“I felt that Beholder’s win in the Pacific Classic was the best performance by any thoroughbred this year,” said Simon. “Smooth Roller, I think, is the horse that is going to be overlooked. This is a horse I definitely think you have to use on your ticket. He represents value when betting on the Breeders’ Cup.”

US Racing’s comprehensive Breeders’ Cup Betting Guide by Derek Simon is available to all members of US Racing. His video analysis of the possible winners can be viewed online at US Racing with Derek Simon.

The world will be watching American Pharoah’s final race on NBC and getting all the action with US Racing.
