2008 Breeders’ Cup Classic Odds: Long Shots Will Pay Huge

There is still a little bit of time to bet on the 2008 Breeders' Cup Classic. And while all horses outside of Curlin pay handsomely - beginning at 7/1 odds, there are a few that would help generate some significant wealth in this struggling economy with as little as a $10 bet put down.

Even Colonel John pays $100 on a $10 bet, enough for a few week's worth of gas perhaps. Bet $100 on Colonel John to win and the payout could be $1000 at Sports Interaction, Canada's first online sports book with some of the best Breeders' Cup Classic odds that we could find.

With some of the races heading into the Breeders' Cup Classic, huge long shots were already paying out big.

David Hofmans is king of the long-shot winners at the Breeders' Cup.

The veteran trainer did it again Saturday, saddling 36-1 shot Desert Code to victory in the $1 million Turf Sprint on the second day of the season-ending championships at Santa Anita. Desert Code paid $75 to win.

Muhannak was the day's first long-shot winner, capturing the $500,000 Marathon at 12-1 odds that generated a $26.80 win payout. Both inaugural races were close, with Desert Code winning by a half-length and Muhannak scoring by a head.

At 6-1, Albertus Maximus continued the trend of big payoffs, rallying from mid-pack to win the $1 million Dirt Mile by 1 1/4 lengths and return $14.60.

Hofmans, based in Southern California, earned his third Breeders' Cup victory at long odds. He saddled 19-1 Alphabet Soup to victory in the 1996 Classic, triggering a $41.70 win payout. Hofmans trained 40-1 Adoration, the 2003 Distaff winner, who paid $83.40.

"We'd like to have a 7-2 shot once in a while," Hofmans said. "But they've all been long shots. I like all three of them myself."
