BC to allow simulcast bets at Churchill

Simulcast signals will be offered for the first time at the host site of the Breeders’ Cup this year under a plan to coordinate the post times for the event on Nov. 4-5 at Churchill Downs with live race cards at Santa Anita and Aqueduct, according to racing officials.


The plan would provide attendees of the Breeders’ Cup with a limited menu of additional betting opportunities for the first time and give bettors nationwide a consistent schedule of product from three tracks during both the Friday and Saturday Breeders’ Cup cards. Now in its 28th year, the Breeders’ Cup has previously prohibited host tracks from offering any other betting than on the live races on the card.


The proposal will also reward Santa Anita and the New York Racing Association, the operator of Aqueduct, with exclusive access to Churchill’s bettors. Santa Anita and NYRA, which also operates Belmont, have perennially lobbied to host the Breeders’ Cup event, with Santa Anita slated for the 2012 Breeders’ Cup and Belmont the favorite for the 2013 site.
