Before you make any picks, you NEED to see what Jody Demling has to say.
The horse racing expert had a stellar 2020 season. At one point last year, he picked the winner of six consecutive races: the Saudi Cup, Gotham Stakes, Rebel Stakes, Louisiana Derby, Florida Derby and Belmont Stakes.
Anyone who has followed Demling is way up.
Now, Demling has released his picks for the 2021 Jeff Ruby Steaks. One shocker: Demling is against Tarantino, even though he's the 3-1 morning-line favorite! "This son of Pioneerof the Nile should be up close to the pace, but he's never raced on synthetic and I don't like the surface switch for him," Demling tells SportsLine. Demling has Tarantino ranked outside of his top four.
Instead, Demling's top pick is a horse who gave a "game effort" in his last race. Demling also is high on a double-digit long shot who "should improve after a troubled trip" in his last race. Demling is including these horses in his exactas, trifectas and superfectas, and so should you! You ABSOLUTELY need to see which horses they are before locking in your picks.
