Our main man Ed Meyer is stepping in with the post-Derby and Preakness analysis.
Of the handicappers we had on the Derby/Oaks Show, Ed came in with the best selection in the Oaks: Abel Tasman was followed home by 12-1 Daddys Lil Darling, and 36-1 Lockdown, who rallied from eighth. Abel Tasman returned $20.40, $9.20, and $6.40 across the board, while Daddys Lil Darling paid $11 to place and $6.60 to show, with Lockdown returning $18.40.
The Daily Racing Form's expert handicap Matt Bernier will join us for his analysis of the Kentucky Derby and insights to the competition lining up to challenge Always Dreaming in next week's Preakness Stakes.
Top racing is returning to his backyard at Belmont Park and we will check out Matt's picks and pans, in particular the $200,000 Peter Pan Stakes (G3) that has launched many a good horse into the Belmont Stakes over the years. Also on the card the $400,000 Man o' War S. (G1), the $250,000 Ruffian H. (G2) and the $150,000
Beaugay S. (G3).
