Odds to win the Breeders' Cup Classic. Can California Chrome return to glory? Odds courtesy of

The Breeders' Cup Classic is the year-end championship for thoroughbred racing. With a $5 million purse, the Classic is the richest race in all of North America.

The race is open to horses 3-years-old and older and is limited to 14 starters. Seven of the runners in this year's field will gain automatic entry by winning a race in the Breeders' Cup Challenge – “Win and You're In” qualifiers.

Shared Belief (15/4) is the early favorite to win the Classic ahead of Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome (4/1).

Shared Belief is an undefeated colt that came from behind to win the Grade I Pacific Classic at Del Mar on August 24, 2014. Shared Belief is in contention to win Horse of the Year despite missing the Triple Crown races due to a foot injury.

California Chrome is set to run the $1 million Pennsylvanian Derby in September as a tune-up for the Breeders' Cup Classic at Santa Anita in November.

How deep is the field? Ride on Curlin has the longest odds at 30/1. Ride on Curlin finished second to California Chrome in the Preakness and has hit the board in five of seven races this year.

The Legend helps to explain how best to read the Pace Figures. It clearly defines what every line, symbol and figure means.
