I honestly do not want to wager against the BC happening (not b/c I don't believe it is a real possibility but rather b/c I do not seek to bet on something that would be damaging for horse racing).
However, in the vein of a friendly wager for charity centered around a successful Breeders Cup at SA, I will make a counteroffer.
The week of the BC, after entries are drawn, we each pick a contender in the BC Classic and bet $100 head to head for a charitable purpose. The person with the pick that finishes ahead of the other chooses the charity of choice for the other to donate $100 to before the end of the calendar year. If a Dead Heat, we both donate.
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation Fighting Childhood Cancer is my charity of choice should I win the wager.
If you go to live racing, I would be happy to discuss further with you. I'll be at Saratoga for Whitney weekend, Kentucky Downs for the Saturday after Labor Day, and at Keeneland opening Saturday. Let me know if you will be at any of these as they draw closer.
