How Does the Pick 6 Work?
The Breeders Cup Pick 6 runs from races 4-9 on Future Stars Friday, and from races 6-11 on Breeders Cup Classic Saturday. The minimum bet is $2, but punters can wager more on the Pick 6, and can also boost their chances of victory by picking more than one horse in each of the Pick 6 races.
The Breeders Cup Pick 6 is available to bet on at the track via the American PMU, but is also online via other betting pools like Ireland’s Totepool, and the online betting exchange Betfair. This is also true for the Pick 5s and Pick 4, the latter offering a $1.5 million guarantee on Friday, and $3 million on Saturday (races 8-11)
The Breeders Cup venue may change regularly, but the races remain the same, and the results have continuous trends than can be value to Breeders Cup betting strategy year after year.
