The Breeders’ Cup is now fast approaching and will be taking place between Friday 6th of November and Saturday 7th of November. This will be held at Keeneland, in what will be the second edition of the event at this venue. Keeneland is at the heart of the thoroughbred industry, so this set’s up for a fascinating championship next month.
It also comes in a difficult time at present, which has further added to the issues for the racing industry world-wide. This is unfortunately set to continue for the foreseeable future, but the Breeders’ Cup will come as a positive step forward for the industry and for sports fans world-wide, in what is again expected to be one of the biggest sporting events of the year. So, as we look ahead to the championships, who is the horse that stands out in the outright Breeders’ Cup betting markets?
Fans have already been looking to bet on horse races and the markets that are opening ahead of the Breeders’ cup. They should look no further with the key horse being the Aiden O’Brien trained three-year-old, Love. She improved remarkably this season, which also saw her made the favourite for the recent Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe. However, she did not take her place in the race, due to the unsuitable heavy conditions. It now appears that she is set to contest the Breeders’ Cup turf and is currently the 13/8 favourite to pick up the victory in the race.
Love returned this season, having won three of her seven starts in her two-year-old campaign. She then kicked off this season with a dominant victory in the Qipco 1000 Guineas at Newmarket. This stamped her down as a much-improved horse. She made steady headway under Ryan Moore and cleared away to win the race by just over four lengths from Cloak of Spirits. Love then followed this up with a nine-length victory in the Investec Oaks at Epsom, which is why she is regarded as the leading horse of her generation. This again saw her making good headway from towards the rear, before being ridden to lead from two furlongs out and pull effortlessly clear to win by nine lengths from stablemate Ennistymon.
Love has also since landed the Darley Yorkshire Oaks, which again saw her produce a dominant performance to clear away and win very impressively by five lengths. This was yet another example of how much she has improved this year.
She’s just a love machine!

Love now heads into the Breeders’ Cup as the clear horse to beat and if she can produce similar form to all her starts this season, then she rates the banker heading into the two-day event next month.
