"The Breeders' Cup continues to be the greatest two days of wagering anywhere in the world," said Ken Kirchner, manager of the Breeders' Cup wagering and simulcasting operations for the last 16 years. "With a tantalizing array of fractional wagers, like the 10-cent Superfecta and 50-cent Trifectas, Pick 3s, Pick 4s and Pick 5s, players can be confident they will receive the highest betting value in all of racing. Among last year's top payouts were a $71,510 Pick 5 for 50 cents; a $93,628 Pick 4 for $1; and a $444,571 Pick 6 for $2."
