Huge fields and wide open races await us during the Del Mar Turf Festival and three of those races are part of this week's podcast - The Jimmy Durante Stakes, The Seabiscuit Handicap and the Hollywood Derby.
We start this week's Key Races & Bets with the Red Smith Stakes, a mile and three-eighths test on the grass at Aqueduct then we move north of the border for pair of excellent betting races at Woodbine - the Ontario Derby & the Bessarabian Stakes.
Some excellent two year old races - the Notebook Stakes at Aqueduct and the Desi Arnaz Stakes at Del Mar, are part of this week's trio of races. The other is the Artie Schiller Stakes at Aqueduct, with a very live 12/1 long shot for profit as the key. Good Luck.
On this week's podcast, I cover the Fort Springs Stakes on the Breeders' Cup undercard, the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint and the Breeders' Cup Turf. Good Luck.
With great racing all weekend, this week's Key Races & Bets covers a couple of races at Belmont on Saturday including the Floral Park Stakes. Sunday's coverage includes the Grade 2 Nearctic Stakes at Woodbine and the Twilight Derby at Santa Anita.
There are five stakes races on the Belmont Park card on Saturday October 10 and many have vulnerable favorites. I think there are opportunities and so all five races are on this week's Key Races & Bets Podcast.
With so much great racing to choose from, this week's Key Races & Bets podcast covers three of the many races at Pimlico including the Laurel Futurity, the James W. Murphy Stakes and of course the Preakness Stakes. Hint Hint - I like a horse who is 20/1 on the morning line. The podcast also covers the Breeders' Futurity at Keeneland, part of Fall Stars Weekend.
There's some great racing coast to coast this weekend so this week's Key Races & Bets blog covers the Noble Damsel Stakes & Vosburgh Stakes at Belmont as well as the Speakeasy Stakes and Rodeo Drive Stakes at Santa Anita.
