Favorites to Win 2011 Breeders Cup

There are now three favorites to win the 2011 Breeders Cup Classic, each at 4/1 odds:  Uncle Mo, Havre De Grace and So You Think.  Churchill Downs owned TwinSpires.com was offering betting for the Breeders Cup to US citizens here.

Uncle Mo is still technically the favorite with some books still offering his odds at 3/1 while none of the other two aforementioned contenders have a prices slashed that low as of this writing. 

So You Think was still getting 5/1 odds at some online race books.

The Wall Street Journal noted this regarding So You Think: 

If you're looking for a bit of a price, but not a crazy longshot, consider So You Think (5-1), a 5-year-old colt bred in New Zealand that has won four races in seven starts this year. "He is a true mile-and-a-quarter horse," said (Churchill Downs oddsmaker Mike) Battaglia. The knock on So You Think (pictured) is that he's never run on dirt—but Battaglia doesn't think that's an issue. "I think there are certain horses that can make the transition."

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.
