The final parimutuel future betting opportunity before the Breeders' Cup Thoroughbred Championships at Arlington Park on Oct. 26 runs from Friday to though Sunday with the Juvenile and Juvenile Fillies pools.
This is the fourth and final betting pool offered in the summer-long wagering series. Win-only betting begins Friday at 1 p.m. (ET) and closes Sunday at 7 p.m. (ET).
There will be 23 horses plus a field entry in each pool. The morning line choice in each pool is the field, at 5-1 in the Juvenile, and 4-1 in the Juvenile Fillies.
Among individuals, Sky Mesa, the Hopeful (gr. I) winner at Saratoga Aug. 31, at 6-1, is the most favored, followed by Vindication, recent winner of the Kentucky Cup Juvenile (gr. II) at 8-1.
In the Juvenile Fillies, Storm Flag Flying, the runaway winner of the Matron Stakes (gr. I) at Belmont in her last start Sept. 14, is held at 6-1 in the morning line. Awesome Humor, winner of the Spinaway Stakes (gr. I), is next at 8-1.
Because of the configuration of Arlington park's main track, both races will be run at 1 1/8 mile this year instead of the usual 1 1/16 mile.Fields, Odds, Breeders' Cup Future Bet
