BLUE GRASS & ARKANSAS DERBY at Interbets.com & OTB!

~ Weekend Highlights…
Saturday is highlighted by the last two big points Derby Preps. The Toyota Blue Grass Stakes is at Keeneland and the Arkansas Derby is at Oaklawn Park. Keeneland has a special early post at 12:35pm and a very full card with five big stakes races including the grade 1 $750,000 Blue Grass, two more grade 1 races and two grade 3s. There’s a guaranteed $300,000 all stakes Pick 4 and a guaranteed $300,000 all stakes Pick 5.

The entries are in for the Blue Grass and Medal Count gets the lucky 13 spot and 9-2 morning line odds. Bobby’s Kitten gets the #5 spot and 3-1 odds. Gala Award is all the way on the outside in the #14 spot, but proves that last is not least with a 5-1 morning line. Coastline (11) and Viceremos (12) both received 8-1 mlo followed by Harry’s Holiday in the #4 spot with 10/1. The points may play a key role in handicapping this one for a few runners. Coastline is only at 13 points now, so he needs this win in order to be in one of the twenty Kentucky Derby spots. Vinceremos and Harry’s Holiday both have twenty points and are in nineteenth and twentieth spots on the Derby card. Wins on Saturday may be needed to ensure their spots in May. The tension is on.

Watch & wager on Saturday’s racing live at an OTB near you. Stream it live on your PC or mobile device with your Interbets.com account. Additional special Blue Grass coverage will be offered in a live broadcast on FOX Sports 1 with coverage from 4:30pm-6:00pm.

Oaklawn has a special early post at 1:00pm and four big stakes races including the grade 1 $1,000,000 Arkansas Derby, grade 2 $500,000 Oaklawn Handicap, and two more $100,000 races.  Entries are in and the post positions are set with Tapiture favored at 9-5 morning line odds in post #3 in a field of nine followed closely by Strong Mandate with 9-2 mlo in that last #9 spot. Commissioner get #6 at 8-1 and Bayern is #8 at 2-1. The Derby points will be a factor in this race. Tapiture already has 42 points so he is likely in the Derby, but Strong Mandate and Commissioner both need a first or second place finish to earn enough points Saturday. As of now they have just 11 and 10 points respectively. Will this make a difference on Saturday? I guess we’ll find out. A few others, Uncle Sigh, Cairo Prince, and Candy Boy, who are not racing Saturday, should be starting to worry just about now that they may lose their spot in this year’s Derby.

This is the first Saturday of Gulfstream’s later 1:25pm post time. Yonkers offers harness fans the fourth leg of the $50,000 George Morton Levy Pacing Series.

All of New York is prohibited by law from horse race wagering this Sunday, April 13 because it is Palm Sunday. This rule also applies next Sunday, April 20 for Easter.

WOOD MEMORIAL, SANTA ANITA DERBY, ASHLAND, FANTASY and so much more at Interbets.com & OTB!

~ Weekend Highlights…
Aqueduct offers wagering fans a $500,000 guaranteed all stakes late Pick 4 Saturday beginning in race 8 at approximately 4:35pm including the Gazelle, Bay Shore, Wood Memorial and Carter. The grade 1 $1,000,000 Wood Memorial at Aqueduct will offer the best-of-the-best the opportunity to earn their spot in the Kentucky Derby. The Gazelle is one of four Kentucky Oaks Preps Saturday. These four Oaks Preps are the last big points earners. The Gazelle is a 1 1/8m prep. Aqueduct will have an early 1:00pm first race post time. The Wood is race 10 at approximately 5:40pm.

NYRA reports in the Aqueduct Racetrack Notes: March 31, 2014, Kristo will make the Wood his first start ever outside of California. His trainer, John Sadler, was quoted as saying, “In his last race, we changed Kristo’s running style… and that probably was a mistake… and we think he deserves one more chance.”  Sadler also has Kobe’s Back as a possible runner in the Bay Shore. NY Bred Uncle Sigh is another possible runner in the Wood with Corey Nakatani confirmed on board once again. The unbeaten Social Inclusion arrived at Aqueduct on Monday and plans to run in the Wood. This will be his first start away from Gulfstream and third overall. Some more Derby contender insight may be gleaned by paying attention to the Wood Memorial this Saturday.

Watch & wager on Saturday’s racing live at an OTB near you. Stream it live on your PC or mobile device with your Interbets.com account. Additional special Wood Memorial coverage will be offered in a live broadcast on NBC Sports Network with coverage from 5:30pm-7:00pm. The Santa Anita Derby will be offered in this same telecast.

Santa Anita will also offer fans a $500,000 guaranteed lat Pick 4 Saturday for their big day highlighted by the grade 1 $1,000,000 Santa Anita Derby, another Derby Prep. In addition there are four more Santa Anita big stakes this day including the grade 1 $400,000 Santa Anita Oaks, a Kentucky Oaks Prep race. Santa Anita will have an early 3:00pm first race post time.

The racing fun begins Friday when Keeneland opens April 4. Keeneland first Saturday card features the third Oaks Prep on April 5, the grade 1 $500,000 Ashland. Oaklawn “brings it” with the grade 3 $400,000 Fantasy and fourth Oaks Prep of the day.  Some very useful Derby & Oaks contender insight may be gleaned by paying attention to the six Preps this Saturday.

On Sunday Oaklawn offers the $100,000 Carousel and Sunland Park offers the $100,000 New Mexico Challenge. Remember that Santa Anita offers a $150,000 guaranteed Pick 6 every Saturday & Sunday as well.
