Five races on Nov. 2 and nine on Nov. 3 are on the Breeders’ Cup World Championships schedule at Churchill Downs in Louisville, including the big Breeders’ Cup Classic. Let's find some winning bets.

The biggest event in horse racing each year and the end-cap to its season, the Breeders' Cup World Championships, will be held on Friday and Saturday (Nov. 2-3) at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky as 14 races — all but one Grade I events — will take place. All races on the Friday Juvenile card will be televised on NBCSN, which will pick up the Saturday races early on before giving way to NBC for the muscle of the day’s card.

Many Eclipse Award divisional winners will be determined although likely Horse of the Year Justify — who retired in July — will be sorely missed. Many of the horses who will be racing at Churchill Downs qualified through the Breeders’ Cup Challenge race series with "win and you're in" berths in specified divisions.

Here are current futures odds from online sportsbook Bovada for both days in race, odds and alphabetical order for the 14 anticipated races. The pre-entered fields for the races will be announced on Wednesday via live stream on the Breeders’ Cup website and also on its Facebook page at 11:30 a.m. ET.
