As we await the release of Breeders Cup pre-entries Wednesday, heres an advance look at the betting menu. Interestingly, there will be some new wrinkles.

For the last few weeks, weve been talking a lot at HRI about fractional betting and the various kind of bets offered. And how much, for instance, we like the idea of a 50-Cent Pick Five.

Well, it will be available on both Breeders Cup days, Oct. 26 and 27. And Monmouth Park and the Breeders Cup want you to get engaged early. The bet will commence with the first race each day.

While it wasnt in the literature weve seen, well assume it will be a mandatory payout regardless of the result: 5 winners, 4 winners, etc., etc.

Pick Threes will be rolling throughout both cards from the first race--no indication of what will be offered Wednesday and Thursday at the abbreviated four-day meet--a $1 wager.

There will be two Pick Fours offered each day, also a $1 wager, with the two Pick Fours on Saturday offered on the eight Breeders Cup events. Each Saturday Pick Four will have $2 million guarantee.

The Pick Six will be a $2 minimum each day. There will be a carryover provision for Friday into Saturday, but Saturdays pool will have a mandatory payoff with a $3 million guaranteed pool.

Win, place, show, exacta, trifecta and superfecta wagering will be available on every race. And, yes, the 10-Cent superfecta that has been growing steadily in popularity, will be offered. The other wagers are $2 bets. (We presume that exacta and trifecta boxes and part wheels for $1 will be available).

There will be three special Daily Double wagers combining the three new Breeders Cup races on Friday with three Breeders Cup events on Saturday. The bet has a $1 minimum.

The order for all Breeders Cup races will be set Oct. 17. First post on Friday is 12:30 p.m. First post Saturday is 11:00 a.m.

The first Breeders Cup race on Friday is scheduled for 4:20 p.m. Saturdays first championship event goes at 12:30 p.m. The final race each day, including Saturdays Breeders Cup Classic, is scheduled for 5:35 p.m.

Ready, set
