One of the biggest races on the horse racing calendar takes place on Saturday evening, and TVG has a limited-time offer for new customers in the 31 states where horse racing is legal: Make your first bet risk-free up to $300 for the 2021 Breeders' Cup Classic, which features a stellar field of nine, including morning-line favorite Knicks Go, Belmont Stakes winner Essential Quality, Pennsylvania Derby winner Hot Rod Charlie and Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit.

Let's explain some more … If you click this link and sign up for a new TVG account, they will refund your first "to win" bet up to $300 (!) if your horse doesn't win.

If you're new to betting on the ponies and are unsure of the best way to take advantage of this promotion, our horse racing expert Jeremy Pond has a horse he likes to win the Breeders' Cup Classic:

No. 4 Essential Quality (3/1): Trainer Brad Cox sends out the two top betting choices in this year's $6 million Classic, including morning-line favorite Knicks Go. However, I've got my circle around the other Cox charge — Essential Quality — and have made him my top pick.

The talented 3-year-old gray colt, who finished fourth in this year's Kentucky Derby, has victories in the Belmont Stakes, Jim Dandy and Travers Stakes on his decorated résumé. The son of champion sire Tapit has earned six wins in seven career starts, and should be able to work out an ideal trip in this two-turn race going 1 1/4 miles.

I fully expect the Goldolphin-owned horse to sit on or right off the lead among a group featuring Go Knicks, Medina Spirit and rival Hot Rod Charlie before jockey Luis Saez makes his move as they hit the top of the stretch.

Chances are his odds won't drift much either way, so I'd pounce on this number while it's there. Bottom line, Expect Essential Quality to back up his bullet drills/workouts ahead of this huge battle of champions and secure the victory by a couple of lengths.

Using this bet as an example … If Essential Quality wins at 3-1 odds and you put the full $300 on him, you'd profit $600 and be able to withdraw any portion of those winnings, plus your original stake, whenever you want.

Simply put, this is one of the best new-customer horse racing offers for those of you looking to get into the ponies, but it's only running for a limited time, so be sure to act fast. Good luck!
