The Chad Brown-trained Etoile will try to win the E.P. Taylor Stakes for the second straight year when she leaves the starting gate on Sunday in the 2021 E.P. Taylor Stakes at Woodbine Racetrack in Ontario. Only one horse -- Kitty Girl in 1957 and '58 -- has won the race twice. On Sunday Etoile has been installed as the 5-2 morning-line favorite in the 2021 E.P. Taylor Stakes odds. Post time is 4:37 p.m. ET.

Before you make any E.P. Taylor Stakes picks or bets, you NEED to see the latest picks from racing insider and Beyer Speed Figure maker Bob Weir. 

A two-time qualifier for the prestigious National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas, Weir has produced multiple five-figure days at the track over the years, including a $60,000 Pick 6 at Del Mar in 2014. This year, he has crushed the three-year-old races. He hit the exacta in the Sam F. Davis Stakes, Tampa Bay Derby and Peter Pan Stakes, the trifecta in the Risen Star Stakes, Blue Grass Stakes and Pennsylvania Derby and the superfecta in the Belmont Stakes. Those are just some of his scores in 2021.

A Grade 1 turf race run at 1 1/4 miles, the E.P. Taylor Stakes has drawn a wide-open field of 10 fillies and mares. Three of entrants are trained by Brown, the nation's top turf trainer: morning-line favorite Etoile (5-2), second choice Great Island (3-1) and 6-1 shot Kalifornia Queen. In last year's race, Etoile stalked in third in the field of seven, took the lead in the stretch and won by a neck.

The big question entering this year's race is, Who will set the early pace? Almost all of the runners in this year's race like to come from off the pace.

Now, Weir has handicapped the E.P. Taylor Stakes 2021 field, made his picks and constructed his bets.

One surprise: Weir is completely tossing Etoile, even though she is the 5-2 favorite. Weir is not using Etoile anywhere on his tickets.

However Weir's top pick is a double-digit long shot who "has never been in better form." Weir is including this horse in his 2021 E.P. Taylor Stakes bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before locking in any of your own!
