How different is wagering on a Breeders’ Cup World Championships card from a normal race day card, or even a normal “big race day” card? In my view, not vastly different at all. Thoroughbred racing is always about opinion and the odds.
I can remember it like it was yesterday. I was 18 and I was about to head to the races for the first time. I had been betting with an ADW for a while, using their simplified versions of past performances – but I had never been to the races in person or held a program in my hands.
