One way online sports betting site players can compare Breeders’ Cup performances year in and year out is to evaluate the winning Beyer Speed Figure as it relates to prior winners.

The Marathon was the first BC race Friday and it has now only been run 6 times. Only one winner, Muhannak recorded a triple digit Beyer but this year’s Marathon hero London Bridge posted the worst winning Beyer in history at 87.

The Juvenile Turf was up next and the average Beyer in the first 6 editions has been 87. Last Friday Outstrip posted the highest Beyer ever in this race with a 93.

The Dirt Mile is also a relatively new race to this series and was run for the 7th time this year. Five of the 6 prior winners posted a triple digit Beyer with the worse figure coming in at 98 by Caleb’s Posse. Friday Goldencents took them wire-to-wire to earn a 105 Beyer, which is tied for the second best of all time in this race.

Last year Flotilla won the Juvenile Fillies Turf with an 84 Beyer and this year Chriselliam got a slightly better figure at 88.

This year’s Distaff was of very high quality and in the history of this race since Beyers were available, not one winner posted less than a triple digit figure. This year Beholder was coming off a 106 Beyer winning the Zenyatta and she was off just a tad with a 105 last Friday.

The Juvenile Fillies opened up the Saturday action and in the long history of the race only 4 winners posted a 100 Beyer or higher. Last year Beholder won the Juvenile Fillies with an 85 Beyer and this season Ria Antonia was put up by the stewards and only saw an 81 Beyer recorded after the effort.

European-based runners have traditionally done well in all the turf races and this year was no exception. Dank came in from across the pond to win a Grade 1 in Chicago in August and proved it was no fluke by winning the Filly and Mare Turf with a clever 104 number.

Groupie Doll was looking to repeat in the Filly and Mare Sprint and she pulled off the feat. Last year she earned a race best 108 Beyer. This year it appeared she was not as sharp as last season but still earned a 107 Beyer.

Another repeater took the stage when Mizdirection successfully defended her Turf Sprint title. Last year she had a winning 98 figure but dropped off by 4 points. It didn’t hurt her value at auction because she sold this week for $2.7 million.

The Juvenile winner has had a hard time over the years in the spring classic. Last year Shanghai Bobby won this race with an 82 Beyer. This year in the Juvenile, New Year’s Day finished strong to post a winning 88 Beyer.

The Fugue was the logical horse in the Turf and she ran well to run second by Magician pulled the rabbit out of the hat to get a 107 Beyer. By comparison it was higher than 3 of the last 4 Turf heroes.

Speedballs lined up for the Sprint and they were all trying to match Artax’s best Beyer in this race of 124. Secret Circle was the vehicle of a great training job by Bob Baffert and although he won his winning Beyer of 98 pales in comparison to the best recorded in this event.

Yet another to defend his title successfully was Wise Dan in the Mile this year. Last year he earned a 107 number and this season it showed he might have lost a half of step of the winning figure was 104.

The Classic was a classic this year. Three horses were on the line and they were all chasing Sunday Silence’s and Ghostzapper’s top winning Beyers of all time of 124.

Mucho Macho Man proved who tough he was but his Beyer of 112 was nowhere near the pinnacle.

Online sports betting site players should not just take these figures at face value, but examine them individually as these runners race on for future projections.
