Flightline | Benoit

Undefeated Flightline (Tapit) closed as the 4-5 favorite following the completion of betting Monday in Pool #2 of the Longines Breeders' Cup Classic Future Wager. After a 19 1/4-length victory in Saturday's GI TVG Pacific Classic at Del Mar, Flightline led the listing of 23 horses and one “all others” wagering interest in the second Future Wager pool for the $6-million Longines GI Breeders' Cup Classic, which will be run at Keeneland Nov. 5.

Pool #2 of the Future Wager generated $437,147 in total handle, more than doubling the $205,349 wagered in Pool #1, in which Flightline closed as the 2-1 favorite. The Longines Breeders' Cup Classic Future Wager was a win bet only with a $2 minimum.

Flightline was followed in the Pool #2 Future Wager by Epicenter (7-1), winner of the GI Runhappy Travers S. at Saratoga. GI Jockey Club Gold Cup winner Olympiad closed as a slight 8-1 choice over GI Whitney S. winner Life Is Good (8-1). GI Santa Anita Derby winner Taiba (33-1) was the fifth choice. The “all others” wagering interest closed at 36-1.
