January 21, 2015 (Washington, PA) – Leading online wagering provider, Xpressbet, is proud to support the Sunshine Millions/California Cup and sponsor the $200,000 Xpressbet California Cup Oaks at Santa Anita Park on Saturday, January 24. The ‘Cal Cup’ is racing’s premier event for California bred and sired runners, with 5 races worth a combined $1 million in purses. Last year’s California Cup Derby champion, California Chrome, would go on to win 4 Grade 1 races, including the Preakness Stakes, Kentucky Derby and Santa Anita Derby, and would also be named Horse of the Year.


As the official sponsor of the California Cup, Xpressbet will produce a free, exclusive Wager Guide with analysis, selections and wagering strategies for each of the 5 Sunshine Millions/California Cup races. Xpressbet’s popular Wager Guides have become an invaluable handicapping tool for betting Triple Crown races, the Breeders’ Cup and other marquee racing events. This year’s Sunshine Millions/California Cup Wager Guide will be available beginning Thursday, January 22.


Additionally, Xpressbet customers that bet the California Cup card will earn 5-times Rewards Points for their Win, Place and Show bets on the card, along with 10-times Rewards Points for all exotic wagers. XB Rewards Points can be redeemed for various items, including wagering vouchers, handicapping products and racetrack experiences.


“We’re thrilled to align ourselves with the great racing that the Sunshine Millions/California Cup promises,” said Xpressbet Senior Vice President of Marketing, Kerry Carlson. “California bred and sired horses continue to perform incredibly well in stakes races from coast to coast, and their showcase event is always a great day of racing. We hope our Wager Guide helps customers make some winning bets, and the Bonus XB Rewards Points they earn are enough to redeem for something they’ve had their eye on in our Catalog.”


According to Doug Burge, President of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association, “We are pleased to have Xpressbet as a sponsor for the 25th California Cup Day which is a celebration of the breeding industry in California. Many great Cal-breds have participated in this event including recent classic winner California Chrome.”
