The Jockey Club Gold Cup takes place at Saratoga Race Course this Saturday evening. The race is part of the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series offering a win-and-you’re in spot in the Breeders’ Cup Classic in addition to it’s $1.25 Million purse.
We have an interesting 8 horse field that includes several top quality horses with a real shot to win. Olympiad is the favorite at odds of 5-2, but Dynamic One (3-1), Americanrevolution (7-2), First Captain (5-1) and Keepmeinmind (6-1) are all right there with short morning line odds of their own, showing that this race is up for grabs.
In this article I will provide the morning line odds for the 8 horses in the field, my pick to win the race and a step by step guide outlining how to place your Jockey Club Gold Cup bets online.

Olympiad, who finished fourth at last months Whitney Stakes after winning his first five races of 2022, is the favorite in the strong field.
I do like the favorite, Olympiad, to win the race at odds of 5-2. He was on an absolute tear this year before having a tough race at the Whitney Stakes, but trying to stay with Life Is Good is no easy task and it resulted in Olympiad having a tough race where he was on the outside at some important points. I do think this horse is the fastest in the field, and as long as he’s able to run his race I think he has a great chance to win down the stretch.
Look for Olympiad to bounce back with a win this Saturday.
Play: Olympiad 5-2
