2024 San Felipe Stakes Betting Odds and Contenders Preview

The $300,000 San Felipe Stakes (G2) is part of a stakes-laden card on Sunday, March 3 at Santa Anita in Arcadia, California. The race was originally scheduled for Saturday, but a rainy forecast caused Santa Anita to push its showcase card a day in order to get better weather and track conditions. Not only is the San Felipe the final local prep for the Santa Anita Derby, but it virtually guarantees its winner a spot in the Kentucky Derby, assuming they are trained by an eligible trainer. With 50-25-15-10-15 Road to the Kentucky Derby points on offer, the winner’s share is historically enough to earn them a trip to Kentucky, and horses who run well can make it with another good prep performance or two. However, only two of the five entrants in the San Felipe are eligible for Road to the Kentucky Derby points

2024 Gulfstream Park Mile Stakes Betting Odds and Contenders Preview

Older horses take the spotlight in the $200,000 Gulfstream Park Mile (G2), a long-standing early-season feature for horses hoping to make a splash in the one-mile or even the handicap division as the year goes on. Given its early position in the year, it is often used to begin a campaign and help trainers figure out where to target their good horses. Winners of the Gulfstream Park Mile have included Triple Crown winner Armed (1947), all-time greats Kelso (1963) and Forego (1974), the dominant Cigar (1995), and more recently, Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Mucho Macho Man (2012) and Belmont Stakes winner Palace Malice (2014). The race is open to horses aged four and up, and drew a field of eight, though only seven are expected to run with the early scratch of Castle Chaos. Leaders include the versatile Wit, Grade 1-placed Il Miracolo, and last-out Fred W

2024 John Battaglia Memorial Betting Odds and Contenders Preview

One of the newest stops of the Kentucky Derby prep season, the John Battaglia Memorial, was added to the series of points races in 2021. However, the race is nothing new: it has existed since 1982, and has long been the local prep to Turfway’s signature sophomore race, the Jeff Ruby Steaks (G3). The John Battaglia Memorial offers a $150,000 purse and 20-10-6-4-2 points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby. This means the winner does not get an automatic trip to Louisville in May, but does get put in a good place if they can run well in one or two other preps
