The Jockey Club Gold Cup takes place at Saratoga Race Course this Saturday evening. The race moved from Belmont Park to Saratoga for the first time in it’s history and the race purse will be bumped up to $1,000,000. The race is also a “Win and You’re In” qualifier for the Breeders Cup Classic.
We have an interesting small 6 horse field that includes 3 top quality horses with a real shot to win. Happy Saver is the favorite at odds of 8-5, but Forza Di Oro and Max Player are both real contenders as well, both with morning line odds of 5-2.
In this article I will provide the morning line odds for the 6 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.
2021 Jockey Club Gold Cup Betting Lines
Here are the morning line odds and post positions for this years edition of the Jockey Club Gold Cup from Saratoga Race Course. The odds will change leading up to the race depending on the amount of money bet on each contender.
- Forza Di Oro 5-2
- Max Player 5-2
- Chess Chief 12-1
- Happy Saver 8-5
- Night Ops 6-1
- Forewarned 20-1
Happy Saver, who won last years edition of the race, is the favorite at odds of 8-5, but as you can see from the odds there are three horses with a legitimate chance at winning the race.
I like Max Player at odds of 5-2. He won the Suburban Handicap in July, defeating Happy Saver in the process, He may have turned a corner in his career, and I think that win could result in more to come.
I always like horses coming off of wins, and the victory at the Suburban Handicap was a very big win for Max Player.
Play: Max Player 5-2
