Then he will time travel to Oaklawn Park to the ladies in a highly competitive Gr. 3 $600,000 Fantasy. Eclipse Award winning writer and handicapper Marty McGee from the DRF will select his best bets from three of the top graded races that will be part of six graded races on an excellent betting program. Undefeated champion Essential Quality will compete in the Gr. 2 $800,000 Blue Grass Stakes; a tough group of fillies will go to post in the Gr. 1 $400,000 Ashland and we will round out his picks for the quality laden Gr. 1 $300,000 Madison Stakes. The “smooth as silk” on-air handicapper at the DRF, Dan Illman will take a bite out of the Big Apple feature races. Derby hopefuls will match strides in the historic Gr.2 $750,000 Wood Memorial, while one or two fillies will punch their ticket to the Ky. Oaks in the Gr. 3 $400,000 Gazelle. Since 1895 many greats have broken from the gates in the now Gr. 1 $250,000 Carter Handicap at 7 furlongs. After the race we will know whose name will be etched alongside racing greats Tom Fool; In Reality; King’s Bishop; Forego and Bold Ruler.
