Already there is brisk action being reported by the crew who are actively monitoring the much ballyhooed 2008 Breeders Cup betting. Of most interest will be the potential for a horse other than Curlin to win this one with 7/1 or greater payout odds.

Latest odds heading into noon Saturday at Sports Interaction were:

Go Between +700 - -

Casino Drive +700 - -

Tiago +1700 - -

Duke Of Marmalade +700 - -

Henrythenavigator +600 - -

Smooth Air +3000 - -

Student Council +1400 - -

Raven's Pass +700 - -

Curlin +150 - -

Fairbanks +2500 - -

Colonel John +900 - -

Champs Elysees +1500 -

They stretched this year's Breeders' Cup to two days, 14 races and $25.5 million in purses and it is really paying off on a day that is normally dedicated to College Football betting.

Still, hard to ignore is Curlin's $10,246,800 in winnings, writes Bill Dwyre of the LA Times. It is the most ever in North America, plus designation as horse of the year last year and credentials to be that again this year.

Even his majority owner, 78-year-old Jess Jackson, Kendall-Jackson Winery founder, who has excelled as a lawyer and businessman to the point of now being one of the richest men in the world, is awe-struck.

"Curlin is my hero," Jackson says.
