Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile Ante Post Preview

There are a lot of really exciting races set to unfold at the Breeders’ Cup this year and the Del Mar surface has proven to be one of the most fair that one could ask for on big days like that. Easily one of the most intriguing contests of the season is going to be the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, which has been a slightly controversial race since its inception.

This time around could be no different with several big names pointed at the contest. One has to wonder how many contenders could opt for the Breeders’ Cup Classic in lieu of this one and that always makes this a tricky race to wager on from an ante post perspective. 

Jackie’s Warrior has been a genuine revelation this season and he comes in fresh off a victory at Parx in another big money race. There are many who think that he will opt to run in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint as the Classic looks like it might be just a little too far for him so the 5/1 price on offer could be a solid one if he chooses to run in the Dirt Mile. 

Life is Good has a lot of fans and he also sat out a good amount of the season after looking like one of the key players on the Kentucky Derby Trail. The Bob Baffert trainee could have his Breeders’ Cup compromised by the looming possibility of his trainer seeing his horses banned from the event but one has to reckon he has enough pull with the Breeders’ Cup and the CHRB to ensure his charges are able to compete. 

Life Is Good can be backed around an 8/1 margin and if he goes into the gate on Breeders’ Cup Saturday then there is every chance that he will go off significantly shorter than that. 

Other notables include Art Collector at a 10/1 margin and Silver State right alongside him in the ante post markets. Beau Liam and Mind Control are both solid 12/1 shouts and they could wind up having a real impression if the race winds up going their way in November.
