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.
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.
Orb was made the 3-1 morning-line favorite in a 14-horse field entered Wednesday for the final leg of the Triple Crown.
Brian Monzo gives you the lowdown on this weekend’s horse racing action.
Morning-line favorite Orb wins the 139th Kentucky Derby.
