2019 Breeders Cup Dirt Mile Betting PT 1

Easily one of the most widely anticipated contests that unfolds at the Breeders’ Cup is the Dirt Mile, which often pits some of the speediest middle distance dirt horses against each other in a wide open contest where you have horses with very different skill sets all dropping into the race. 


This year’s contest is no different and you can bank on some solid ante post prices for this widely-anticipated event happening in Los Angeles during the first weekend of November. 

Taking a look at the markets, you’ll find that Catalina Cruiser, who runs in the green silks of Kosta Hronis, is ranking as the betting favourite by a good distance with many assuming that he’s going to make a big impression on his home track during the Breeders’ Cup. 

Right now, the bookmakers have him priced anywhere between a 7/2 margin all the way up to a 5/1 price tag. There is no way that he is pointed at any other race and he will likely go off at a shorter price as he goes into the gate. He has the right type of skill set for this race and has been in relatively sharp form this year with many looking at him as an established older star. 

Mitole is the clear second favourite and you’ll find him priced around a 6/1 listing and he has been one of the real breakout stars of the past year in American thoroughbred racing. He made a great impression at Saratoga this year and looks to carry that momentum into his Breeders’ Cup contest.
