Breeders' Cup picks

Nov 5, 2010 8:39 AM

It was a full house Thursday night at Palace Station for the annual Breeders' Cup Seminar held by our own Richard Saber, along with Race Day Las Vegas’ Ralph Siraco and Palace Station’s Vic Vivio.

The threesome provided a great time -- as well as expert betting tips -- for an enthusiastic and at times rowdy audience.

Per usual., Zack Goldberg, director of Palace Station's Race & Sports book, got things rolling with his trademark humor -- "Welcome to the first race book karaoke night."

The crowd, definitely on Team Zenyatta, broke out in cheers for racing's biggest star whenever her name came up -- and sometimes when it didn't!

In the end, here were their picks:
