Betting the Big Races on Derby Day

May 2nd, 2009 | By | Category: Churchill, Triple Crown

Starting with the Derby, the scratch of I Want Revenge means that Friesan Fire is my selection.  He likes an off track, can stay close to a slower pace and finish.  I’m keying him up and down with Papa Clem, Chocolate Candy, Dunkirk and Pioneer of the Nile.

In the Turf Classic (Race 10), watch for a speed duel between  Cowboy Cal and Thorn Song, both suspect on good turf, and play a closer to win the race.  I love Artiste Royale and am playing him to win and up and down with Proudinsky and Einstein.

In the Humana Distaff (Race 9), I love Secret Gypsy to wire the field and hold Game Face off in the stretch.  I’m making a big win bet and exacta box.

See all my picks and good luck!
