Before you make any Oaklawn Handicap picks, you NEED to see what Jody Demling has to say.
A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling enters the 2021 Kentucky Derby off a major heater: At one point last year, he picked the winners of six straight races: the Saudi Cup, Gotham Stakes, Rebel Stakes, Louisiana Derby, Florida Derby and Belmont Stakes.
This is the same handicapper who hit the Derby-Oaks double at Churchill Downs nine times in the last 12 years! That means he held a ticket with the winners of both the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby all but three times in his last 12 tries. Anyone who has followed Demling is way up.
Now, Demling has released his picks for the 2021 Oaklawn Handicap. One shocker: Demling is fading Fearless, even though he is one of the top favorites at 7-2. In fact, Demling says Fearless doesn't even hit the board! "I still have to see a good effort against a really good field before I can think he wins a race like this," Demling told SportsLine.
Instead, Demling's top pick is a horse who "has looked impressive." Demling also is high on a long shot who "could be dangerous!" 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.
