2009 Breeders' Cup Introduction
The 25th running of the Breeders' Cup World Championships, to be run November 6 and 7, 2009 at Oak Tree at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California.
All Breeders' Cup fields are limited to 14 runners. If more than 14 are pre-entered, Breeders' Cup officials use a two-part selection system to decide which horses will be allowed to compete. The first seven runners earn automatic berths based on the points they have earned in American graded stakes races then a panel of racing directors and secretaries choose the next seven entrants.
Through 2006, there were eight races on the Breeders' Cup card, all classified as Grade I races. In 2007, three races Dirt Mile, Filly and Mare Turf, and Juvenile Turf were added, all of them run the Friday before the remaining eight races. Three more new races a Turf Sprint, Juvenile Filly Turf and Dirt Marathon were also added for 2008.

Types of Breeders' Cup Classic Bets
Win, Place and Show
Win: You win if your horse finishes first.
Place: You win if your horse finishes either first or second.
Show: You win if your horse finishes either first, second or third.
The easiest bet to win is a show bet. If your selection finishes third or better, you win. The Pick 6, requiring the bettor to select six consecutive winners in as many races, or the Superfecta, requiring the bettor to select the correct 1-2-3-4 order of finish in a given race, are the most difficult. The higher the risk, the greater the payoff.
2-Horse 2009 Breeders' Cup Betting Odds

Daily Double: Selecting the winners of two designated (consecutive) races.
Horse bets must be placed before the running of the first of the two races. The Daily Double is generally offered on the day's first two and last two races.

2009 Breeders Cup Results
In a debate that is testament to one of the most memorable seasons in Thoroughbred racing history, Horse of the Year voters must decide which of two females was more remarkable in beating the boys.
Zenyatta had the last word as she emerged as the first of her gender to win the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic on Saturday. The 5-year-old mare handled one of the deepest international fields in the 26 runnings of the Classic when her breathtaking late run overtook Gio Ponti by one length before 58,845 jubilant fans. Twice Over failed in his bid to add to Europe's record six winners in 14 Breeders' Cup races. He finished third. Zenyatta paid $7.60, $5.60 and $3.80 as the 5-2 favorite.
