Which Breeders Cup Horse Races Have Produced the Highest $$$$ Superfecta Payouts?

The 2018 Breeders Cup series of horse races will take place this year on November 3, 2018, at beautiful Churchill Downs located in Louisville, Kentucky. Here is a list of the Breeders Cup races which have produced the highest average superfecta payouts.


In order to win a superfecta bet you have to have the first four finishers in a race in exact order. It is not an easy bet to win but if you do hit it you can make a lot of money. The superfecta bet offers bettors one of the best chances to turn a little bit of money into a lot of money at the racetrack betting on horse races.

There are 14 different Breeders Cup races that will be run in 2018, ranging from races for juvenile horses to the best older horses in the game and from sprint to distance races and races run on the dirt and on the turf. 

Historically, some of the races have produced whopping superfecta payouts in many years while other races have not. This is the list of the races which have produced the highest average superfecta payouts since the Breeders Cup has offered the superfecta.

Since superfecta betting has been offered on Breeders Cup races the race that has produced the highest average payout per year is the Breeders Cup Classic with an average payout of $38,222.

The author has written about this before and you can see the highest payouts at Breeders Cup Superfecta Bet Has Averaged $38,222 Payout Per Year.

Why has the Breeders Cup Classic had the biggest superfecta payouts? The race has the biggest purse at $6 million so every trainer and every jockey does everything they can to get a piece of that enormous prize money leading to many longshots winning and running in the money in this event.



2. Breeders Cup Mile Turf - $17,973


The Breeders Cup Mile Turf race has the second largest average superfecta payout at $17,973. Why such large payouts for this race? Turf racing is notoriously hard to predict and this race attracts runners from all over the world many of whom have never run much against any of the competitors in the race.

  • 2004 - $53,694.00



  • 2006 - $49,292.70





3. Filly & Mare Sprint - $17,434


The Filly & Mare Sprint has the third largest average superfecta payout at $17,434. Why is that the case?

  • 2008 - $29,663.30


  • 2017 - $20,311.40

Any Breeders Cup race can produce a massive superfecta payout. Almost all the races feature large fields full of top horses trained and ridden by the most successful people in horse racing.
