The Winners of Past Years
In the history of this event, there have been 242 horses from US soil that have come away with wins. And when you compare that to any that were international, the differences are crazy. Only 64 non-American horses have ever won events here, so considering that you have 242 from home and that 64 is the combined total of all the others, it’s very telling which way to lean.
If you’re looking for a horse that has already won here to be the winner, well, you need to double-check your Breeders Cup predictions again. You’d have to go all the way back to 2000/2001 to see a repeat winner, when Tiznow was able to come away with the title in consecutive years. This is not a case of continued success most of the time, but a tale of a new underdog emerging from the pack as the trophy holder.
The event returned to Keeneland last year and saw Flightline come away with the victory. In 2021, Knicks Go came away as the champion as the event was held in Del Mar, CA. Authentic took the event in Keeneland in 2020, while Vino Rosso was the champ in 2019 in Santa Anita. And finishing off the past five years of champions look-back, Accelerate won it in 2018 at Churchill Downs.
So, who is going to be the winner this time around? We’ll lay the projected winners of a few of the events down, and go from there.
The Expectations For 2023
This article is examining the Saturday slate, so not the events kicking off on Friday, November 3, but the day after. So keep that in mind as the topic shifts right over to that.
Arcangelo will not be partaking in the event after being a late scratch, so one of the initial favorites will not be available. Arabian Knight is the odds on favorite at 3-1 and may have a real chance to walk away as the champ. That would not be too shabby a pick as the Breeders Cup champion for what’s going to be taking place this weekend.
There is a two-way tie at 4-1 between White Abarrio and Ushba Tesoro, neither of whom have come away with titles in this event. Keeping in mind that it has been two decades since a horse claimed two crowns here in different seasons, these two will require a hefty bet in order to really earn, but they are in their positions for a reason.
Bright Future comes in next at 10-1, a real opportunity to also stake a claim at the Breeders Cup predictions success. The name truly speaks volumes to the ability of the 4-year-old Colt. Beware of this one, who could be a sneaky pick to come away with the trophy on Saturday.

Some of the Longshots + Final Pick
Saudi Crown and Zandon sit next at 12-1 odds. Clapton and Derma Sotogake are 20-1. And then rounding out the competition of the field of 12, there are multiple horses with 30-1 chances to be the winner. Dreamlike, Senor Buscador, and Missed The Cut all reside in that territory. They’re all longshots, but anything can happen when you get into the weeds of the race.
So with all things considered, it’s time to make a pick on who is going to earn the Breeders’ Cup title. And the pick should not surprise you too much.
So when heading in to place bets on the event, put the money down on White Abarrio. The 2022 Florida Derby champion is going to take another one, and it would be wise to pony up. Pun fully intended.
