There is a new favorite in the Breeders' Cup clubhouse following Arcangelo’s upset over Forte at Saratoga this weekend.


Coming off an unprecedented 11-week break since his Belmont Stakes victory, Arcangelo has now firmly secured his spot as the Breeders' chalk with 7/2 (+350) odds, via The Jena Antonucci-trained 3-year-old had 8/1 odds on August 7 and 10/1 odds on July 11.

“I guess the more this horse does, the more we’re going to keep writing some history,” Antonucci said.

Disarm ran a credible second place and moved from 20/1 to 10/1 for the Classic.

Forte failed to flatter yet again and is now listed at 16/1, while Kentucky Derby victor Mage finished last and has fallen to 20/1.

Geaux Rocket Ride (previously 10/1) and White Abarrio (previously 12/1) both strengthened their positions in the Breeders' market without leaving their barns!

The day was marred by the deaths of two horses, including New York Thunder in the $500,000 H. Allen Jerkens Memorial. In all, seven horses have died at the summer meet in upstate New York.
