American Pharoah 6-4 Favourite For Classic

  • American Pharoah 6-4 Favourite for Classic, Beholder 3-1 second favourite
  • More than half of all money wagered is on American Pharoah
  • US punters think Beholder most likely challenger
  • Gleneagles attracts HALF of all UK bets and a third of the money with William Hill UK

All of the main Breeders’ Cup races are now available to bet at William Hill and in the Breeders’ Cup Classic, American Pharoah is the 6-4 favourite after posting Stall 4, with Beholder 3-1 after posting the widest draw of Stall 10.

“Beholder has the car park draw, but we are not underestimating her ability to throw down a challenge to American Pharoah,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

William Hill UK can reveal that American Pharoah accounts for 29% of the bets placed on the Classic, but 56% of the money wagered. This largely mirrors the pattern at William Hill’s Nevada Sportsbooks.

“In terms of the money wagered, American Pharoah is easily the most popular horse in the UK betting market and also in the US Sportsbook,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

However, UK and US punters disagree with the horse they think is most likely to defeat American Pharoah. US punters think Beholder is the horse with the best chance of dethroning the Triple Crown winner (11% of bets, 15% of money), while Gleneagles has attracted the most bets in the UK (50% of bets, 30% of money).

“Gleneagles has been a frustrating horse to follow this season, but it appears UK punters are willing to roll the dice on him again.”

Gleneagles has shortened to 14-1 from 16-1 to stop American Pharoah from landing the Grand Slam.

Meanwhile, William Hill have pushed out the odds of there being a bumper haul for the European’s, easing ‘Five Or More Winners’ to 9-2 from 4-1 after some of the main Euro hopes received tough draws in their respective races.
