Folks, days like today don’t come around very often. Today is a great day for sports. After a very dark period where we had no sports at all, today is a special reward. College football is back, there are 17 MLB games, the second round of the NBA Playoffs continue as well as the race for the Stanley cup. Although the classy cherry on top is it’s Derby Day! There’s a lot of hype because Tiz the Law won the Belmont and is the favorite to win today in his race for the Triple Crown. However, I have a horse that I think has been flying under the radar that’s got some great value. Let’s make some money on Derby Day!
For race 2 I like “Proud Veteran”. The Dallas Stewart barn has been high on this one. The first time out he ran really green. He ran like he needed a race. Then 2nd time out they ran him on the turf. Today he gets back to his preferred surface. Expecting a big effort out of this one.
Proud Veteran to win 4-1 Morning Line the pick.
We’re gonna take a little break after race 2 and grab some minty refreshments until race 8. For race 8 I’m going with “Field Pass”. Tons of speed in front of him to run. The horse knows how to win and get his nose to the wire first. I think the trip will be ideal today and the cutback will help this horse a lot. He is coming out of a much further race.
Field Pass to win 2-1 ML the pick.
My play of the day is “Digital”. The horse has been training out of his skin. He’s also been running a lot of short and long-distance races. Today he’ll be running a middle distance which should play to the horse’s advantage. At 12-1 it’s got great value and I love this pick.
Digital to win 12-1 ML the pick.
For this race, I like “CeCe”. I love the cutback to one turn. This is the right distance for her and I think Serengeti Empress falls off after her last performance.
CeCe to win 3-1 ML the pick.
As I said all the hype is on heavy favorite “Tiz the Law”. Yet my favorite play of the day is “Honor AP”. I think he’s a sleeping giant going unnoticed because of Tiz the Law. He’s a big strong horse with a long stride. He should love the extra distance today so look for him to run them down late.
Honor Ap to win 8-1 ML the pick.
