The last major horse-racing event of 2016 continues Saturday with the second day of the 2016 Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Santa Anita Racetrack.

The main event, of course, is the 1.25-mile Classic, which boasts a massive $6 million purse. All eyes in that race, of course, will be on 2014 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome, who will look at add to his already historic $13.4 million in career earnings.

At 8-11, Chrome is certainly the odds-on favorite, but he’ll find stiff competition from Arrogate (11-4) and Frosted (15-2). You can find the complete list of odds here.
