The conclusion of the 2012 Breeders' Cup will commence on Saturday night at 8:30 p.m. ET. The 1 3/4 mile journey around the track has a purse of $5 million and only allows horses three years or older to compete. Last year's winner was Drosselmeyer.
The favorite to win is Game On Dude, who has 9-to-5 odds. Others like Flat Out and Fort Larned to win with 5-1 odds, while Ron the Greek is right behind them at 6-1. Mucho Macho Man and To Honor and Serve opened at 8-to-1.
Looking for an underdog to pull for? Handsome Mike, who starts in the seventh position out the gate, is 30-to-1 as of Saturday morning. Him winning would be one of the bigger upsets in racing history.
All of tonight's action from Santa Anita Park in California will be televised live on NBC beginning at 8 p.m. ET. NBC will provide both pre-race coverage and have full reactions from the winners and losers.
