Now that they've added two CalBred races and a possible Arabian or Mule race to the menu, I see $40 as value, no?
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Yes, insane that it isn't $100. People, for the most part, aren't going to the BC for the sole purpose of betting. They are going for the event. You can bet anywhere and watch the races on TV. I guess it's only fair to charge higher prices for sporting events and rock concerts.

Do I leave my house at 7:00am the day of the Breeders Cup, battle 2+ hours traffic for a simple 40 minute drive, then pay $10 to park, $40 admission and the extremely long lines to get in, $10 Daily Racing Forum, then deal with extremely long lines to just get in a bet (MAYBE!?), ridiculous long lines just to get ONE BEER, and of course running into the weirdo who talks about himself and his luck for still being alive for over 30 minutes..........
Drive 10 minutes to my friend's place on the beach with 3 Kegs of Beer (Spaten, Kiren, and Stella) on tap, an excellent BBQ, good friends, computer wagering, 4 big screen TVs, college football, and plenty of space to relax,
