According to the Daily Racing Form‘s Matt Hegarty, the Breeders' Cup is not yet releasing prizes for the Breeders' Cup Betting Challenge after a number of players have submitted a letter to the organization alleging misconduct.
The letter alleges players cooperated on entries, which is against the rules of the contest. According to the Form it is not unusual for players to handicap together, but it is difficult to prove when two or more players may have actually coordinated their plays. The letter accuses contest winner Nisan Gabbay and ninth-place finisher Eric Moomey of directing picks on entries besides their own.
