Betting 2017 Breeders’ Cup Friday on a $100 bankroll

There are many ways to tackle the two-day Breeders’ Cup betting bonanza, but my favorite is to key one or two horses each day.

My key horse for Breeders’ Cup Friday is Elate in the Distaff. Her trainer, Bill Mott, has saddled the winner of the Distaff five times, and his improving 3-year-old filly might make it six for the Hall of Famer.

Elate is starting to live up to the hype that was placed on her after romping by more than 12 lengths in her career debut last fall. She dropped four straight after her bow and turned the corner after a confidence-boosting minor stakes score at Delaware Park. She just missed in the Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks on July 23 and romped in her last pair in the Grade 1 Alabama and Grade 1 Beldame. She is reportedly training forwardly for the Distaff as well.

I will split up my $100 bankroll by playing 30% to win, 50% in exactas, trifectas, and superfectas, and 20% in daily double wagers.
