Race Book Notes

Year-end tourneys
ViewFromVegas.com owner Dave Tuley has covered most every major handicapping tournament in Vegas since 1998 (and some in Reno). He has covered all 15 finals of the Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship, though he just Tweeted about the most recent one on Jan. 24-26, 2014, at Treasure Island.

Click this link to his story on the other major year-end tourney, the Horse Player World Series at the Orleans, which was held March 27-29, 2014, and won by Christian Hellmers of the "Horseplayers" TV show 


BC Coverage
For a look at how ViewFromVegas.com previewed championship weekend, go to our dedicated Breeders' Cup Page. We look forward to doing it next fall with the races again at Santa Anita.

Futures
The Wynn opened the first future book for the 2015 Kentucky Derby on Monday, Sept. 15. Here's the latest sheet we have from the Wynn:

2015 Kentucky Derby (Wynn 10-20)

The Wynn has had odds for the Breeders' Cup Classic since last winter and added the Distaff over the summer. William Hill's Classic odds opened Aug. 19:

2014 BC Classic & Distaff (Wynn 10-20)

2014 BC Classic (William Hill 10-20)

Earlier this year, William Hill received approval from the Gaming Control Board to offer odds for the Horse of the Year Eclipse Award (Nevada has long prohibited any wagers based on voting -- such as elections, Oscars, MVP, Heisman, etc., but 2 years ago said it would allow those but only being granted approval on a case-by-case basis). William Hill got such approval, and hopefully it leads to more books offering these sorts of bets:
