The Big Three

Fresh off a nice win with Known Agenda in the Florida Derby, it is only natural to look at the three Kentucky Derby preps for Saturday with confidence. The Blue Grass at Keeneland was the easiest for me. While I do not like the pace set up favorite Essential Quality gets, he has overcome that and other adversity in the past, and I think he will again on Saturday. I am not going past him in this spot. I think he is legit and will get the job done. The lack of pace in [...]

Key Horse Races & Expert Handicapper Bets – April 3, 2021

Commonwealth Stakes - Race 7 at Keeneland - Post Time 4:24 PM Eastern Hidden Scroll is a standout in my opinion, in spite of opening as the second choice on the morning line at 5 to 2. I just don’t get the 8 to 5 morning line favoritism afforded Flagstaff, who has won just one of his last eight starts going back to the beginning of 2020, and he was only close to winning one of the other seven when beaten a head in September. Furthermore, trainer Sadler just doesn’t seem to know what [...]

The 2021 Florida Derby and Mandatory Payout Pick 6

The Grade 1 Florida Derby anchors the mandatory rainbow 6 payout on Saturday, and I think the pool will be about 7 million.  The derby is an interesting race this year and a good one from a wagering standpoint, in my opinion. Favorite Greatest Honour, while very legitimate has to again run on a track that usually does not favor his style, he has the points needed to get into the Kentucky Derby already and may not be cranked up as much as he can be for this. After all, Shug is patient and [...]

Key Horse Races & Expert Handicapper Bets – March 27, 2021

Cutler Bay Stakes - Race 11 at Gulfstream Park - Post Time 4:43 PM EasternAnnex is a standout and a single (the only horse to use) on pick 3 and 4 tickets, which is why I started with this race in spite of the fact he will likely be the favorite. The colt has run twice and both were visually impressive efforts, first when rallying from eighth to first in the last 3/16 of a mile then last out when rallying from sixth early and 22 lengths behind, to win by a head on [...]
