There's \$12 million in purse money to the owners of the winning purses, but there's also \$5 million offered to the successful bettors of a new wager - the Ultra Pick 6!

The previous 14 Breeders' Cup cards have proven to be some of the most contentious race days ever presented to the betting public, and this year's renewal will be no exception. So, to get an edge and a chance at the \$5 million guaranteed pool, you need the value-added information accessible to BRIS subscribers. Here's the handicapping tools for making it a great day on November 7 at Churchill Downs:

Foreign Class Ratings

The Foreign Class Ratings have been the answer to picking the turf races on Cup day. Consider this: every turf winner and runner-up from Europe since 1994 has been ranked in the top 3 or within two points of the top horse based on BRIS Current Class! Now that's an edge you need.

Thanks to 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 advantage 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.

Check out the results since BRIS incorporated the Foreign Class Ratings in 1994:

'97 Mile winner SPINNING WORLD (\$6.20) was rated 1st on both Current Class and Average Competitive Level.

'97 Turf runner-up, BORGIA, was ranked 2nd on both Current Class and Average Class behind the American representative and winner Chief Bearhart.

'96 Turf winner PILSUDSKI (\$29.40) and runner-up Singspiel (exacta \$61.10) ranked 4th and 2nd respectively on BRIS Average Class.

'96 Mile runner-up SPINNING WORLD was ranked 2nd on Current Class. '95 Mile winner RIDGEWOOD PEARL (\$7.10) ranked 1st in Current Class and ACL.

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

'94 Mile winner BARATHEA (\$22.80) ranked 3rd on Current Class.

'94 Turf winner TIKKANEN (\$35.20) ranked 3rd on Current Class and 1st on ACL!

Don't even consider going to the windows for the Breeders' Cup turf events without this information! The recommended report for accessing the Foreign Class Ratings is the Ultimate Past Performances with Track Bias and Race Summary.
