Trainer Bob Baffert can add to his record number of victories in the West Coast's top Kentucky Derby prep race when he sends out two runners for the 2021 Santa Anita Derby on Saturday at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif. Baffert's Medina Spirit is the 5-2 morning-line favorite in the Santa Anita Derby odds. Post time for the $750,000 race is 7:15 p.m. ET.
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 Santa Anita Derby. One shocker: Demling is largely against Rock Your World, even though he is the third choice on the morning line at 4-1. The Santa Anita Derby will be Rock Your World's first career start on dirt, and Demling has him ranked outside the top five in the race.
Instead, Demling's top pick is a horse who "has a chance to take over as the Kentucky Derby favorite's role" this weekend. Demling also is high on a double-digit long shot who "has some upside." 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.
