Breeders’ Cup ’09:
Striking an early flutter on big races, called ante-post betting in Europe and future wagering in North America, can be a lot of fun, and very rewarding, for the intelligent racing fan.
But do beware, for many bookmakers have horses on their lists that are very doubtful runners – some even confirmed to bypass the Breeders’ Cup Series. There seems to be attempts at daylight robbery going on here.
AVOID THESE IN YOUR FUTURE BETS
Colonel John (20-1) is not sure to get into the race nd will be 20-1 or bigger on the day if he does.
