Its the Breeders Cup from the Santa Anita track with live streaming available through Bet365, tips and odds as Dank and Torondo look the ones to beat tonight.
Although the Kentucky Derby is arguably the most talked about horse race in the USA, the Breeders Cup meeting is the real centrepiece of the American flat racing scene.
All in all, there are 13 championship races across both Friday and Saturday and $26 million in purses up for grabs and it’s not surprising to see that many British raiders are taking their chance there this year.

We’ll be focusing on the big races on the Saturday night with the hope of plucking some value out of the air.
Having looked through the card, the European challenge is a really strong one this year and following the chances of some of them in the betting markets certainly looks the way to play this year’s meeting.
My first wager of the evening will be Dank in the Filly and Mare Turf, who looks a sound wager to double up on her win in this very race last season. Sir Michael Stoute’s filly hasn’t been at her best season on turf in Britain but she looks a horse primed for this assignment and will relish the underfoot conditions along with the track layout.
Ryan Moore is in the saddle and she should be able to battle this one out with fellow British raider Just The Judge. It looks as though Dank has the edge though and backing her with solid stakes looks a splendid play.
Double Dank up with Telescope in a Moore/Sir Michael Stoute double and you won’t go far wrong.
The classy colt runs in the Breeders’ Cup Turf and the one mile and a half trip should be right up the selection’s street. He was last seen when chasing home The Grey Gatsby and Australia over 10 furlongs in Ireland but has been given a break before this test and should be more nearer the form that saw him win the Hardwicke Stakes by seven lengths earlier this season at Royal Ascot.
He’s likely to get similar ground for this latest race in America and that could trigger special performance.
I won’t be having a bet in the Breeders Cup Mile but it’s hard not to like the chances of Toronado for the Richard Hannon team even at short prices.
He hasn’t been given a hard year in comparison to other Hannon Group One performers but has still managed to win the Queen Anne Stakes before chasing home the magnificent Kingman in the Sussex Stakes. Kingman has been retired now though and that should leave the path clear for the Hannon runner to land a huge race in the States.
