• West then Southwest--a prime win bet & questions for Joel

    POSTED Feb 16, 2013
    Golden Gate Fields gets its turn in the Derby trail spotlight Saturday afternoon with the El Camino Real Derby, the penultimate 10-points-to-the-winner Kentucky Derby qualifying race. The final race in this stage of the points system is the Southwest Stakes on Monday at Oaklawn Park.

    Racing Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert ships horses into both races, and he'll be formidable in both per usual, but Mandando, to me, is the most likely winner among both races, and I'm prepared to make a prime win bet on him in the El Camino Real at anything better than 3-to-2.

    Let's see what the Triple Crown Insider duo thinks, and to come up with your own opinion, have a look at these FREE Brisnet.com Ultimate Past Performances.


    As far as the top ten goes, Jon is absolutely right... the better (faster!) horses are ranked 7th, 9th, and 10th. There's no way Oxbow is a better Derby contender than Verrazano, Itsmyluckyday, or Shanghai Bobby!
