The brainchild of Jennie Rees has brought together some of the top national handicappers who will give their fresh selections on a weekly basis. Jockey agent Rick Mocklin has Richard Eramia's book - a five-time leading rider in his native Uruguay and Louisiana Downs. They were recently featured in an article in the Blood-Horse depicting Eramia's journey to U.S. citizenship. We'll discuss this moving story and get Rick's 'inside track' on the Stakes.
