2008 Breeders’ Cup Betting Odds: Some Changes Since Open

Gambling911.com has been monitoring the 2008 Breeders' Cup betting odds for any significant changes since the odds opened midweek.

Colonel John took a hit, which is actually good news for gamblers who can now get him at +900 compared to opening odds of +600. The payout now would be $900 for every $100 bet at betED.com

Tim Wilkin of the Times Union in Albany had this to report on Colonel John and his lack of respect:

Colonel John, last seen winning a gut-wrenching Travers Stakes at Saratoga on Aug. 23, was an afterthought in the 12-horse Classic field. Curlin, as expected, was made the solid 7-5 early morning favorite. Colonel John and Student Council, the Whitney's second-place finisher, are both 20-1. Only Smooth Air, at 50-1, has odds higher than those two.

"I was a little surprised," trainer Eion Harty said after the draw. "He is not getting a lot of respect, but I'm not the oddsmaker, I'm only the trainer."

When asked what he would have made Colonel John, Harty, with a straight face, said. "I would have made him 8-5."

Part of the reason Colonel John's odds soared is that the 3-year-old crop has not gotten much attention. None of the Triple Crown race winning horses (Big Brown, Da'Tara) are in the Classic.

"The perception is that this is a very weak 3-year-old crop," Harty said.

Another favorite outside of Curlin, Casino Drive, has seen his odds get just slightly longer from +600 to +700 for a payout potential of $700 on every $100 bet.

Duke of Marmalade has gone from +500 to +700, Henrythenavigator has gone from +300 to +600 and Student Council has seen his odds shorten only slightly from +1500 to +1400. Both Curlin at +150 odds and Go Between at +700 remained unchanged in the odds department.

The Breeders' Cup, Thoroughbred racing's most prestigious global event, consists of 14 races held over two days, with purses totaling $25.5 million, making this year's event the richest prize money event in sports worldwide.
