The Breeders’ Cup features the best turf horses from around the world going, as the name suggests, the distance of one mile. The purse is $2 million and the race has gained a reputation as often having one of the strongest fields of the entire Breeders’ Cup program. Last year, Tepin took on male rivals, stalked the pace and won impressively to win by 2 ¼ lengths at odds of nearly 5-1. She returned $11.80.

How To Win Breeders’ Cup Mile Bets
The Breeders’ Cup Mile is Race 10 on the Breeders’ Cup weekend and goes on Saturday, November 5th from Santa Anita. Post time is 3:22 p.m. PDT.
Probable starters with odds
- Tepin (4-1) – She lost the First Lady at Keeneland after a nice horse got loose on the lead. She won’t have that sort of pace scenario to deal with here and does not seem to have lost a step since winning in England. She is a world class racehorse and has proven she can win the biggest races. You can bet Casse will have tightened the screws.
- Ironicus (5-1) – He ran a very good race in the Shadwell and seems to be getting better and better. He could be overlooked and be a legitimate threat here especially with an honest pace.
- Alice Springs (6-1) – International contenders are always serious threats and Aiden O’Brien is no stranger to Breeders’ Cup success. Worth noting that this race seems to have been the goal all along.
- Midnight Storm (8-1) – Overlook this consistent, hard-knocking horse at your own peril. He is a versatile, tactical horse and has a distinct advantage being proven at Santa Anita.
- Miss Temple City (8-1) –Has beaten the boys twice this year dodging Tepin and will have to face the champion mare. Has had a brilliantly campaigned season by Motion.
- Limato (10-1) – Undecided between Mile and Turf Sprint but should excel over the hard, fast turf course at Santa Anita
- Tourist (10-1) – He should improve significantly over the Santa Anita lawn and has been a quietly underrated horse all year. He has been knocking on the door of a breakthrough victory.
- Mondialiste (12-1) – The runner-up in this race behind Tepin last year will get another crack at the champion but does not seem to be in the same form he was in last year.
- What a View (12-1) – His record at Santa Anita speaks for itself – he is five for five and a Grade 1 winner. He could be an interesting longshot.
- Spectre (15-1) – Sophomore filly taking on the boys but has strong international credentials
