WHAT HORSE WON A BREEDERS' CUP RACE WITH THE HIGHEST ODDS?
This past weekend the 36th Breeders’ Cup was held at Santa Anita Park in California. On Friday it hosted the Juvenile (GI). The race was won by the longest shot winner over the two days. It was won by Storm The Court at odds of 45.90-1. This translated into a #2 win payoff of $93.00. Although at high odds it was only the seventh highest odds in the Breeders’ Cup history. It was topped by Shared Account in the 2010 BC Turf at 46-1. Next highest was in 1994 Cup when One Dreamer won the BC Distaff at 47.10-1 odds. In the inaugural running of the BC Lashkari won the Turf at 53.40-1. Nineteen years ago, in 2000 Spain won the Distaff at 55.90-1. The second highest odds for a horse winning a Breeders’ Cup race came in 2011 when Court Vision won the Mile at 64.80-1 odds. The highest winning odds ever and not likely to be surpassed soon was 133-1 by Arcanques in the 1993 BC Classic.
