2022 Breeders' Cup Classic Breakdown

  • How To Watch: NBC/Peacock TV

Can anyone knock off the massive favorite, Flightline on Saturday evening in Lexington? Oddsmakers certainly don't believe so as the undefeated four-year-old looks to make it an unblemished 6-0 in his young, illustrious career. The thoroughbred has been widely regarded as the most dominant thoroughbred since Secretariat. The John W. Sadler-trained Colt was given a 139 rating in this past September's World's Best Racehorse Rankings, which is the highest score ever given for a horse running on dirt. Flavien Prat will look to jockey Flightline to a victory at Keeneland Race Course after the 30-year-old Frenchman led Country House to a win at the 2019 Kentucky Derby before helping Rombauer win the 2021 Preakness Stakes.

When it comes to some of Flightline's biggest foes for Saturday evening, oddsmakers think Epicenter (+500), Life Is Good (+600), and Taibi (+800) are his biggest adversaries. Epicenter famously finished 2nd back-to-back at this year's Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, respectively, and looks to end 2022 on a high note and doing what he couldn't do earlier this year and that's winning a Triple Crown race. Perhaps flying under the radar due to Flightline's lofty expectations, Epicenter's two-straight second place finishes at Triple Crown races, and Taibi being under the tutelage of Bob Baffert, is Life Is good. Already holding a win at the Breeders' Cup in the form of last year's Dirt Mile, coupled with having higher career earnings than the previously mentioned three horses combined, the four-year-old Colt could play spoiler on Saturday evening.

2022 Breeders' Cup Classic Pick

How can you fade Flightline, right? Right. How can you ever bet against who's being compared to the great Secretariat? It's simple, you can't.

However, if you're more inclined toward a real dark horse (pun intended), Bob Baffert's horses seemingly always have a nose for the big ones and his best chance in the form of Taiba (+800) would be the one to perhaps shock the world on Saturday evening.

Pick - Flightline (-167) Bet $100 to collect $159.
