CHURCHILL race 11 The Kentucky Derby ~ (4 star)
#6 BODEMEISTER – if he gets a clear trip, he will win by 8 lengths, a super star ready to explode

If your playing Trifectas and Superfectas, these might run underneath and blow up the payouts.

#10 DADDY NOSE BEST – the wise guy horse, might close for 3rd or 4th
#20 LIAISON – has never been better, blinkers back on, longest shot on the board


About Author

TOP PICKS & SUGGESTED WAGERS I handicap the races and list Four Horses per race (plus another in case scratches) in order of preference starting with the Top Pick so multi-race and inter-race wagers can be formed. Currently, I am focused on KEENELAND AND BELMONT PARK  providing my Pick5, Pick4 and Pick3 wagering strategies. My selections for turf races are 2nd to none. I find value and Double Digit Top Pick Turf Winner as my specialty.. Spot Plays may also be included in the daily selections, weekends more probable. Tracks for potential Spot Plays include SANTA ANITA, CHURCHILL DOWNS, LAUREL PARK, GULFSTREAM PARK, and CANTERBURY DOWNS. I'll focus around turf races looking to cash nice tickets.
