    New York's road to the 2023 Kentucky Derby continues on Saturday when a full field of 14 leaves the starting gate in the 2023 Gotham Stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, N.Y. The Brad Cox-trained Eyeing Clover has been installed as the lukewarm 4-1 morning-line favorite in the Gotham Stakes odds. Slip Mahoney, who also is trained by Cox, is the 5-1 second choice. Post time for the one-turn mile race is 4:56 p.m. ET.

    With a wide-open and full field set to leave the starting gate on Saturday, you'll want to hear what Louisville, Ky.,-based racing expert Jody Demling has to say before making any 2023 Gotham Stakes picks.

    A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling has nailed the winner of the Belmont Stakes four of the last five years, as well as the exacta in 2022 with Mo Donegal and Nest. He also nailed Flightline's win at the Breeders' Cup Classic in November.

    Demling is at his best in the biggest horse races in the country. In fact, he has hit 10 of the last 14 Oaks-Derby doubles at Churchill Downs. That means he held a ticket with the winners of both the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby all but four times in the last 14 years. He's also called nine of the last 18 Preakness winners and nailed the 2022 Preakness trifecta.

    Now, Demling has handicapped the 2023 Gotham Stakes field, made his picks and constructed his bets.

    One shocker: Demling is high on Lugan Knight, who is the co-third choice on the morning line, at 6-1. "The son of Goldencents won the Jerome Stakes at Aqueduct in January and ships back in from Kentucky with another big shot," Demling told SportsLine. Demling is using Lugan Knight prominently in his wagers.

    Morever, Demling's top pick is a horse who "looks as if he could be the best of this bunch." Demling also is high on a double-digit longshot who "will be part of the early speed" Demling is including these horses in his exactas, trifectas and superfectas, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in your picks for the 2023 Gotham Stakes.
