  • Betting Picks for Upcoming Race

After a surprising upset at the 2020 Preakness Stakes, where horse racing fanatics everywhere were sure Authentic or Art Collector were guaranteed to take the lead, Swiss Skydiver was the first to cross the finish line, and is the 6th filly to win the Triple Crown race. If the Stakes were any indication, the ‘clear favorite’ isn’t always so clear, and might not be for the upcoming 2020 Breeder’s Cup either.

2020 Breeders’ Cup Class Betting Pick: 

Although Authentic didn’t take the Preakness Stakes, he did come in second, meaning he could very well be ripe to win the cup. However, seeing how the Stakes went, don’t count out any of those ‘middle-range’ racers lile Code of Honor, either. Obviously offering a higher payout in the chance they do win, Code of Honor (+1600) in particular is coming fresh off a win at Westchester Stakes with a 1:42.39 time. Code of Honor also had a stellar 2019 year, being the runner-up of the 2019 Kentucky Derby and winning the Runhappy Travers Stakes & the Jockey Club Gold Cup Stakes, plus was one of three Eclipse Award Finalists.

According to jocket Javier Castellano, “He’s stronger; he looks a lot stronger. He grew up and so hopefully we can have a good year.”

If Code of Honor has grown up from placing 2nd in last year’s Kentucky Derby, that just might mean taking 1st in this year’s Cup.
