Breeders' Cup Future Bet

Updated: 08/12/02

The pool is now closed. You can view final odds here.

The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) has set the fields for this weekend's Breeders' Cup Future Bet Pool Two. This time the races will be the John Deere Breeders' Cup Turf, the Breeders' Cup Mile and the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf. In all 3 races, the mutuel field has been made the morning line favorite. Pools will be open August 9 - 11, from 1:00-7:00 p.m. (ET) each day.

Under Breeders' Cup Future Bet rules, each race will offer pari-mutuel groupings of 23 runners plus one field entry consisting of all horses not in the body of 23 for each respective race. All betting, available at outlets nationwide, will be win-only with a minimum wager amount of $2.00. At the conclusion of wagering on August 11, odds for all entries become final. No refunds are made on horses that do not ultimately compete in their designated races. Arlington Park will serve as the processing hub for all wagers.

The complete Breeders' Cup Future Bet schedule for 2002 is:

  • Thursday, July 4 - Sunday, July 7: Breeders' Cup Classic, Breeders' Cup Distaff and Breeders' Cup Sprint (Pool I) - Final Odds
  • Friday, August 9 - Sunday, August 11: John Deere Breeders' Cup Turf, Breeders' Cup Mile and Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf - Final Odds

Daily Racing Form will provide extensive support for the Breeders' Cup Future Bet, including full past performance lines in all editions for all days the Future Bet is offered, plus comprehensive editorial coverage of the Future Bet horses. A special Breeders' Cup Future Bet section is available at DRF website which includes the same past performances that may be found in the print edition, free to download. The special section will also feature regularly updated odds of horses in the Future Bet pools during open pool dates.
