BY foxsports • October 22, 2014

The Breeders' Cup announced Wednesday the order of races, wagering menu and post times for the 31st Breeders' Cup World Championships, to be held on Friday, October 31 and Saturday, November 1 at Santa Anita Park. There will be a total of 10 races (four Breeders' Cup races) on the Championship Friday program and 12 races on Championship Saturday (9 Breeders' Cup races). Championship Friday begins at 11:25 a.m. Pacific Time with five undercard races. Champion Saturday first post is 10:15 a.m. PT and also begins with three undercards races.

The Official race order of the undercard races for both days of the World Championships will be finalized on Monday, October 28 after entries have been taken. All times Pacific.

The first Championships race on Breeders' Cup Friday will be the $1,000,000 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (2:25 p.m.); followed by the $1 million Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (3:05 p.m.); the $1 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (3:50 p.m.); and the $2 million Longines Breeders' Cup Distaff (4:35 p.m.). There will be an Ultra Pick Six starting with the Twilight Derby (race 4) and concluding with the Distaff (race 9). The Las Vegas Marathon Stakes follows the Distaff at 5:10 p.m.

On Championship Saturday, first post time is 10:15 a.m., starting with the Juvenile Turf Sprint Stakes, the Golden State Juvenile Stakes and the Ken Maddy Stakes.  The order of the Breeders' Cup Saturday races is as follows:  $2 million 14 Hands Winery Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (12:05 p.m.); $2 million Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf (12:43 p.m.); $1 million DraftKings Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (1:21 p.m.); $1 million Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (2:05 p.m.); $2 million Sentient Breeders' Cup Juvenile (2:45 p.m.), $3 million Longines Breeders' Cup Turf (3:23 p.m.); $1.5 million Xpressbet Breeders' Cup Sprint (4:02); $2 million  Breeders' Cup Mile (4:45 p.m.) and the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic (5:35 p.m.). There will be an Ultra Pick Six with a guaranteed gross pool of $2.5 million beginning with the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (race 7) and concluding with the Breeders' Cup Classic (race 12).

This year's wagering menu on the 13 Breeders' Cup races features an abundance of wagering opportunities including two Ultra Pick Sixes, a low takeout fifty cent Pick 5, 10-cent Superfectas, 50-cent Trifectas, Pick 3's , Pick 4's and Pick 5's, a Breeders' Cup Distaff/Classic daily double and two Super High 5 wagers.

"The Breeders' Cup offers the best betting value of the year for horseplayers around the globe," said Ken Kirchner, President of FalKirk International and the manager of the Breeders' Cup wagering and simulcasting operations for the last 19 years. "With outstanding fields of Grade 1 competitors and low priced betting options like fifty cent trifectas and Pick 3s, Pick 4 and Pick 5s, the Championships yield some of the highest pari-mutuel payouts of the year. The outstanding full fields will ensure that this year's event will live up to its moniker or 'the best bet in sports' "

Each Breeders' Cup World Championships race will feature a maximum of 14 horses and wagering interests with the exception of the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile, which is limited to 12 starters. In addition to the standard Win, Place and Show betting, there will be Exacta and Trifecta wagering on every race and rolling Pick 3 wagers beginning with the first race and continuing through all races on both Championship Friday and Championship Saturday. Among the featured wagers this year are:

Breeders' Cup Pick 5s with a $.50 minimum bet value and a 14 percent takeout. The wager will be offered on the first five races each day and will give players a chance to cash a large bet for a small investment.  The wager may carryover from Friday to Saturday and also from Saturday to Sunday.  Last year's Saturday Pick 5 handled $6,438,510 and paid $23,665 for a fifty cent wager.

Friday's Ultra Pick 6 will have a guaranteed gross pool of $750,000 and Saturday's Ultra Pick 6 will feature a $2.5 million guaranteed gross pool. If no one hits the Friday Ultra Pick 6, the pool will carry over into Saturday's Ultra Pick 6. The wager may also carryover fromSaturday's program into Sunday.  In such case, the Pick 6 would be a mandatory payout on Santa Anita's closing day program on Sunday, Nov. 2.  Last year, Friday's Pick 6 paid $106,839 for a $2 wager. Saturday's Pick 6 paid $47,516.

Breeders' Cup race days continues to offer some of racing's highest payouts.  Trifecta and Sueprfectas continue to pay huge dividends.  Last year saw $1 trifectas pay $3,710, $2,810 and $2,619.  Superfecta payouts were $27,889, $17,140 and $14,718 for a $1 bet.

A Special Daily Double wager linking the Breeders' Cup Distaff (race 9) on Friday to the Breeders' Cup Classic (race 12) on Saturdaywill again be offered.

Other wagering highlights this year are:

The Pick 4, with a 50-cent minimum, continues to be a fan favorite bet at the Breeders' Cup. Friday's late Pick 4 (races 6-9) will have a guaranteed pool of $1,500,000. On Saturday, there will be two guaranteed Pick 4s. The early all Championships Pick 4 (races 4-7) will have a $1,500,000 guaranteed gross pool and the late all Championships Pick 4 (races 9-12) will have a $3,000,000 million gross pool.  The Friday Pick 4 last year paid $29,725 for a fifty cent wager.

Here will again be a  Super High Five wager on both the Breeders' Cup Distaff and the Breeders' Cup Classic. Bettors are required to select the first five finishing places on one ticket. If no one hits the Super High Five on Friday the pool will carry over toSaturday's and if no one hit's the Saturday High Five, it will carry into Sunday. The bet minimum for this wager is fifty cents.
