Conquer the Cup!

The past 13 Breeders' Cup Days have proven to be some of the most contentious race cards ever presented to the betting public. So, to get an edge you need the value-added information accessible to Bloodstock Research subscribers. Here's the handicapping menu for the greatest day in racing, November 8 at Hollywood Park:

Foreign Class Ratings

Armed with the powerful BRIS Foreign Class Ratings, you will instantly be able to evaluate the European invaders despite the lack of familiarity with their racing. These sophisticated measurements of each horse's performances will give you a distinct edge over the "uninformed" players betting without these figs.

Foreign Class and Race Ratings cover all starters in England, Ireland and France since January 1, 1990, and appear in all reports that carry the BRIS Class Ratings -- Ultimate PP's, Pacegraph, High Tech Report, etc. Two BRIS tools, the Current Class Rating and the Average Competitive Level (ACL), utilize the Foreign Class Ratings to help pinpoint the best horses and most likely winners. They are an absolute necessity when handicapping the two Breeders' Cup turf races, which will be loaded with foreign imports.

The proof is in the pudding. Check out the results since BRIS incorporated the Foreign Class Ratings in 1994:

1996 Turf winner Pilsudski (\$29.40) and runner-up Singspiel (exacta \$61.10) ranked fourth and second respectively on BRIS Average Class.

1995 Mile winner RIDGEWOOD PEARL (\$7.10) ranked 1st in Current Class and ACL.

1995 Turf runner-up by a neck, FREEDOM CRY ranked 1st in Current Class and ACL.

1994 Mile winner BARATHEA (\$22.80) ranked third on Current Class.

1994 Turf winner TIKKANEN (\$35.20) ranked third on Current Class and 1st on ACL!

Every turf winner and runner-up from Europe since 1994 has been ranked in the top three or within two points on the top horse based on BRIS Current Class. Don't even consider going to the windows without this information! Recommended report -- the Ultimate Past Performances with Track Bias and Race Summary.


The industry's leading online newsletter practically takes you to Hollywood Park in the weeks leading up to the big raceday. All the latest news and developments will be in each FREE daily issue. The Edge provides timely workout information on all Cup contenders, vital quotes from owners and trainers, plus exclusive articles on handicapping the races. Available the night before the Breeders' Cup, the Edge will offer the Track Bandit's in-depth analysis and selections for each race.


You don't have to wait until entries are drawn to get a jump start on handicapping the seven contentious races. Access now any of the BRIS entry reports, excluding the early Track Program, with probable starters in each race. These reports offer great insight for future book bettors or anyone looking for the earliest possible information for analyzing the Breeders' Cup.


The WIZARD is offering a new perspective in 1997 by providing readers with a more valuable format for his Breeders' Cup Scouting Report. Every major prep race, foreign and domestic, is analyzed in detail, covering bias reports, pace profiles, and an analysis of how the race set up for every horse - winners and losers.

If you think a chart footnote is detailed, you will not believe the lengths to which the Wizard has gone in order to present readers with a look beneath the surface of each Breeders' Cup prep race. The Scouting Reports are available each Friday from October 10 to November 7 for \$8 each. If you missed an issue, don't worry -- back issues are available online.


TIMEFORM is Europe's premiere handicapping service, rating and evaluating horses for nearly 50 years. Their "race cards" are a must for British horseplayers and through an arrangement with BRIS, Timeform will once again produce a special Breeders' Cup 1998 edition. This invaluable report offers the best and most accurate comparisons possible between the stars from both sides of the Atlantic. Detailed comments and ratings are provided for every horse on the card.

Timeform has been reviewing and rating all North American Graded Stakes races for four years, so their team of handicappers are in a unique position to offer analysis on both the European and North American challengers.

So this year, find out what the leading European handicapping service thinks about their Breeders' Cup chances, as well as getting a whole new perspective on the home team. The Timeform Breeders' Cup Race Card will be available online the evening of Wednesday, November 5. At \$10, it could be the wisest investment you make for Breeders' Cup XIV.


BRIS also offers several other perspectives for Breeders' Cup Day. The SCRATCH SHEET is the ultimate in convenience, providing expert picks, morning line odds/program numbers, weather forecasts, speed and class ratings, and track bias profiles all on one page per track. Available in ready-to-print PDF format, the Scratch Sheet is easy to print and a true bargain for only \$1.

The KENTUCKY HANDICAPPER'S SHEET (\$3) is produced in-house at BRIS and offers a professional handicapper's view into the Breeders' Cup card as well as all the races on the undercard at Churchill Downs.

TODAY'S RACING DIGEST (\$5) will offer their expert selections for the Cup, along with the regular picks for Northern and Southern California's live race cards.
