The NHL used to be about one thing and one thing only: hockey. The NHL is now no longer about hockey; it’s about pretty much everything but hockey as I knew it.
I figured this week we will try something different. Instead of picking winners and breaking down individual races and horses, I thought we would try to make a reasonable Pick 6 play.
This weekend is one of the better weekends for finding big races in the East, both on the turf and on the dirt. We also get to see some solid runners, including Preakness winner Oxbow and Belmont Stakes winner Palice Malice.
As usual at the Spa, the bombs and longshots have been coming in. It’s what makes the game so great. Let’s try and find three in today’s card.
The first leg of great summer of racing has started at Del Mar racetrack. Now we get ready for Saratoga, where the best of the best go for six weeks.
This week marks the opening of my two favorite summer racing meets. Saratoga opens up on Friday, and Wednesday opens up the summer meet at Del Mar Racetrack in Del Mar, California.
Great racing continues this Saturday as Belmont Park has the G2 Suburban Handicap and the G2 Dwyer Stakes, Monmouth Park has the G1 United Nations Stakes and Hollywood Park has the G1 Hollywood Gold Cup.
I took an extended look at Friday’s card at Monmouth Park. To me, there are some very favorable odds that could pay out.
The Triple Crown season has come and gone, with three separate winners in all three seasons. But the summer of races is only starting, and we have plenty of graded races to break down throughout the summer.
We’ve looked at the undercard, and now it’s time to break down the big one. The one that matters most.
The beauty of such great races is that it didn’t take me long to figure out which races to use in the column this week. The hard part was making my picks.
Brian Monzo gives you the lowdown on this weekend’s horse racing action.
Saturday’s feature of the day is the Preakness Stakes. We took a long look at that, but there are a few races I like at Belmont Park and Monmouth Park as well that we can discuss.
Orb drew the unfortunate rail, taking the first post. Let’s break down the field, starting with the Kentucky Derby winner.
