The Triple Tiara has lost a lot of its luster over the course of the last several years, and that has put a damper on filly horse racing. That said, when it comes time for the Breeders' Cup, all of the top fillies and mares from around the world get together for the Breeders' Cup Distaff at 1 1/8 miles on the main track. This $2 million prize pool is too juicy to stay away from, and if you've got a filly or mare that you think can run with the big girls, this is what you've prepared her for over the course of her entire career.
This year horse betting fans are in for a treat, as the Churchill Downs will get to serve as home for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships. The Breeders’ Cup hails as the most prestigious horse race in the world, and this year, and the first time that Del Mar racetrack will play host to the Breeders’ Cup on November 2-3, 2018.
Every year, the Breeders' Cup Championship continues to grow in popularity because of its prestige and keen level of competition.
There are some big time thoroughbreds that are lining up to run in the Distaff this year. It all starts with Clement L. Hirsch Stakes winner, Stellar Wind. Winning here at Del Mar where the world championships will be held this year is a great indication that Stellar Wind is set to be the favorite at the Breeders' Cup Distaff, though she's going to have a lot of company.
A total of six horses won their last race entered the Distaff, and that doesn't even include Kentucky Oaks winner, Abel Tasman, who finished second at the automatic qualifying Cotillion Stakes in her last run.
Forever Unbridled, who is projected to be amongst the favorites to win the Distaff as well, won both the Personal Ensign Stakes and the Fleur de Lis Handicap, two of the seven "Win and You're In" races in the summer.
1: Champagne Room 15-1 / Off Track Odds
2: Stellar Wind 5-2 / Off Track Odds
3: Mopotism 30-1 / Off Track Odds
4: Abel Tasman 4-1 / Off Track Odds
5: Elate 3-1 / Off Track Odds
6: Forever Unbridled 4-1 / Off Track Odds
7: Paradise Woods 9-2 / Off Track Odds
8: Romantic Vision 15-1 / Off Track Odds
Normally speaking, races that have just eight entrants, even at this high of a level, generally have odds-on favorites or horses that are darn near it.
Not in the Breeders' Cup Distaff.
Stellar Wind is the 5 to 2 favorite to win this race, but there isn't much at all separating her from the fifth choice on the board, Paradise Woods at 9 to 2.
The only thing about Stellar Wind that we would suggest is that she's one of the two horses that will almost certainly win if she runs her race. She's got raw talent that hasn't been able to be showcased at the top flight of filly and mare racing due to the fact that she keeps running into once-in-a-lifetime types of racers. First it was Stopchargingmaria in the 2015 Breeders' Cup Distaff. Then it was Beholder last year.
That said, Stellar Wind is 10-for-13 in her career aside from the Breeders' Cup, and this is perhaps one last opportunity for her to shine.
That said, Elate could be turning into the next great mare. She has won back-to-back races with 108 Beyer Speed Ratings in both runs, and we don't think there's another horse in this field who can keep up with her if she pulls off a third straight awesome performance.
Even the horses down on this card are special. Champagne Room is 15 to 1, and she won the Breeders' Cup Distaff last year, while the longest shot on the board, Mopotism is running in her sixth career Grade 1 race at just three-years old.
