The top grass horses in the country square off when nine horses square off in the 2021 Turf Classic on Saturday at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. The Todd Pletcher-trained Colonel Liam is the 3-1 morning-line favorite in the Turf Classic odds. Post time for the race is 5:27 p.m. ET.
Before making any 2021 Turf Classic picks, you NEED to see how handicapping champion Jonathon Kinchen has broken down the race.
Kinchen is one of the nation's most successful and recognizable horseplayers. An analyst for Fox Sports' America's Day at the Races and co-host of the In the Money Players' Podcast, Kinchen won the National Horseplayers Championship Tour in 2015, a demanding, yearlong series of handicapping events across the country. That same year, he became the only player in history to have both of his entries qualify for the final table of the National Horseplayers Championship.
In addition, Kinchen has scored huge on some of racing's biggest days. In November, he finished second out of 418 contestants in the prestigious Breeders' Cup Betting Challenge, which earned him $215,000 in prize money. After factoring in his profit during the 14 Breeders' Cup races, he took home more than $366,000 on the day!
It's no fluke, either. At the 2015 Kentucky Derby, he cashed for $150,000 after nailing the Pick 6 and a Pick 3 that paid $50,000.
Anyone who has followed him is up BIG.
Now, Kinchen has handicapped the 2021 Turf Classic field, made his picks and constructed his bets.
We can tell you Kinchen is completely fading Ride a Comet, even though she is the co-fourth choice on the morning line, at 5-1. Kinchen will not have Ride a Comet on any of his tickets.
However Kinchen is high on a long shot who should be "prepared and ready." Kinchen is including this horse in his wagering, and so should you. You NEED to see Kinchen's analysis before making any Turf Classic picks.
So who wins the 2021 Turf Classic? Which long shot is a MUST-BACK? And how has Kinchen constructed his wagers?... Join SportsLine now to get 2021 Turf Classic picks and bets, all from an unmatched handicapping champion who won $366,000 in the Breeders' Cup and $150,000 on Derby day in 2015!
