The post position draw took place earlier in the week for the 2017 Breeders Cup Classic with updated odds as a result now that we know who the entrants will be.

Classic

8:35 p.m. ET Saturday

1. Arrogate (2-1)

2. War Decree (30-1)

3. Win The Space (30-1)

4. War Story (30-1)

5. Gun Runner (9-5)

6. Mubtaahij (12-1)

7. Churchill (15-1)

8. West Coast (6-1)

9. Gunnevera (30-1)

10. Pavel (20-1)

11. Collected (6-1)

Arrogate drew the rail, which is not always a good thing.  Arrogate is North America's richest horse with more than $17.3 million in earnings.

He’s looking to become only the second horse to win consecutive Breeders Cup Classic races.

“Arrogate always seems to get the one a lot,” Baffert said. “He has it and you can't change. They're all spread out. I just didn't want them to all draw in next to each other. We have a long run to the turn. I like being on the outside better, but I've got a lot of good horses on the outside. It will all work out. They are spread out everywhere. It was a good draw for Collected, on the outside, West Coast is in a good spot there. Mubtaahij comes from off the pace anyway. At least there is separation there.”

Mike Smith, the all-time leading rider in Breeders' Cup victories and money won, will ride Arrogate
The winningest post position in Breeders’ Cup history. A total of 36 winners broke from gate No. 4.  War Story at 30-1 odds starts from that post position.

This year is the first year that Del Mar, the seaside track north of San Diego, will host the Breeders’ Cup.

Malaysian Horse Racing: A History of the Sport

The history of horse racing in Malaysia is largely influenced by Australian racing. The country's interest in racing was first evident in the 1880s, when organizers began setting up large race meetings twice a year. In 1896, the Straits Racing Association and Penang Turf Club were established. As a result, horse racing in Malaysia has a rich history.
