Well there are two types of "good breeding stock". Stock that will win shows, and stock that will sell. Both of these have a demand, so you can offset your hobby with a bit of cash to compensate for all the time and money spent. And also find them good homes. I am sure there is a percentage (small) of mutt Betta's that find good homes, but having a breed that is in some demand helps the most toward finding homes for the Betta's you breed.
Most of the fish at aquabid.com seem to be good breeding stock, some could be show winners. I was at petco yesterday looking over their stock, even their half moons looked pretty poor. Perhaps if the IBC starts up their "stock shop" again that would be a good place.
