Each of the 14 Breeders’ Cup races this year features a purse over $1 million. Those perennially talented fields and big purses are part of the allure, according to handicapping expert Kevin Gorg.

“The neat thing is, you don’t need a huge bankroll to make a big bank score,” he says of the Breeders’ Cup. “You hit a trifecta or superfecta, you’re probably going to hit for thousands of dollars.”

Also, advance wagering will be available Thursday Nov. 1, at approximately noon for both Friday and Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Cards.
