2020 Breeders’ Cup Classic Odds, Post Positions, and Likely Winners

| November 3, 2020 10:35 am PDT
2020 Breeders’ Cup Classic

There will be 14 unique races during the Breeders’ Cup 2020 and all of them should be exciting to watch. The Classic is, of course, the most anticipated one every single year. It features ten of the finest horses in the world and the prize pool is $6,000,000.

The Breeders’ Cup 2020 Classic is scheduled for November 7, but the betting odds are already out there. The post draw is also done, so we know the starting positions of all contestants. I explore both in this post before sharing my thoughts on the likely winners of the competition.

Breeders’ Cup Classic 2020 Odds

As you can see from the latest odds, the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Classic should be really close. Improbable is the most probable winner according to the betting sites, while Title Ready is far from ready to grab the title. If that’s not irony, I don’t know what is!

The puns aside, there are at least five horses that will be battling for the grand prize. The likes of Tiz the Law, Maximum Security, Tom’s d’Etat, and Authentic won’t shock anyone if they win, while By My Standards is another contestant that has a shot at the title.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the Breeders’ Cup 2020 Classic post positions.

Post Positions for the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Classic

Here’s how the horses in the Breeders’ Cup Classic 2020 will line up after the post draw was completed.

Post Horse
1 Tacitus
2 Tiz the Law
3 By My Standards
4 Tom’s d’Etat
5 Title Ready
6 Higher Power
7 Global Campaign
8 Improbable
9 Authentic
10 Maximum Security

It’s interesting to note that the three horses of the famous trainer Bob Baffert Improbable, Authentic, and Maximum Security are all starting on the three outside posts. They are all among the favorites in the upcoming race and there’s another interesting storyline.

Authentic and Tiz the Law are younger and explosive horses with wins in this year’s Kentucky Derby and Belmont, respectively. They will have to face some of the best from the older generation that are expected to challenge for the Breeders’ Cup.

Can the veterans withstand the pressure from the rising stars? We’re about to find on November 7!

If you are looking for the post draw for the other races from the 2020 Breeders’ Cup, I recommend you to visit the official Twitter account of the event. It features the starting positions for every single competition.

Who Will Win the Breeders’ Cup Classic 2020?

Predicting the winner of the Breeders’ Cup Classic is always a challenge, especially when the race is as stacked as in 2020. There are several horses that have the pedigree and the credentials to challenge for the prize.

Improbable is the big favorite here after an amazing season so far. The son of City Zip had some trouble in 2019 and didn’t deliver the results we expected, but returned even stronger this year with various wins over the top Grade 1 horses out there.

The other strong contender is Tiz the Law, the winner of the Belmont Stakes 2020 and second-place finisher in the Kentucky Derby. It’s another 3-year-old with a sublime resume and it’s hard to underestimate what Tiz the Law has achieved so far.

One of the veterans that can upset the big favorites is Maximum Security. The horse usually starts well and if he’s at his best, it would be hard to lose him. The big question here is if Maximum Security hasn’t lost some pace because of his gruesome career so far.

These three are the most likely winners of the Breeders’ Cup Classic 2020, but there are at least two or three more horses that could upset the odds. Authentic already did that in the 2020 Kentucky Derby, while Tom’s d’Etat and My Standards deserve respect too.

For a more in-depth prediction on this year’s Classic, I recommend you to check our horse racing picks page. We will publish recommended wagers for the race and other Breeders’ Cup 2020 events there.

I also have a post on how and where to bet on the Breeders’ Cup this season, so check it out to find the best betting sites and my general tips for the competition.
