Tuley's BC Winners
through the years
    I've had a lot of success on the Breeders' Cup since moving to Las Vegas in late 1998. I started in the pages of GamingToday (a weekly newspapers here in town) and have publicly picked every BC race since then including 1999 at GT, then in DRF as well as on my radio shows and seminars, as well as on ViewFromVegas.com since 2007 and now at ESPN.com/chalk.
    Note: Some people give a 1-2-3 listing like I do in the link above and then say "I had the winner" if any of those come in, but I just base my record on my top value pick and let it speak for itself (for instance, I had Mizdirection and Trinniberg listed as "longshot" plays but they weren't my top choice so I'm not including them here).
    All my top picks have been the same in all outlets and during that time there have been 186 races (8 races a year from 1999 through 2006; 11 in 2007; 14 in 2008-2010; 15 in 2011-2012; 13 in 2013-2015). A flat $2 win bet on my top selection in each race would have cost $372 and resulted in payoffs of $601.60, or $3.28 for every $2 wagered. You'll note that of those 186 races, I've had just 15 winners (under 10%) and just under an average of 1 per year, which just goes to show the BC offers tremendous betting value as one winner can make your whole weekend.
