    With several accomplished horses set to enter the starting gate on Saturday, you'll want to see what SportsLine writer Gene Menez has to say before making any American Turf picks. Join SportsLine here to get his full Kentucky Derby picks and start winning!

    A former reporter and editor at Sports Illustrated, Menez covered an array of sports, including horse racing, for the magazine and its website for almost 14 years. Between 2010 and 2012, he served as SI's handicapper for the Triple Crown races and correctly predicted Super Saver to win the Kentucky Derby in 2010.

    In 2015, while writing for Sports on Earth, Menez accurately gave out the Kentucky Derby superfecta (American Pharoah, Firing Line, Dortmund and Frosted), which paid $1,268.20 for $2. Then in 2017, he tweeted out his Kentucky Derby picks, including Always Dreaming to win, and hit the Pick 4, which paid almost $6,900 on a $1 bet. Join SportsLine right here to see his 2024 Kentucky Derby picks!

    In a span of seven races last year for SportsLine, he cashed the winner of the Lecomte Stakes, the exacta in the Southwest Stakes ($468), the winner of the Holy Bull Stakes, the winner of the Sam F. Davis Stakes, and the trifecta in the Jenny Wiley Stakes. In May, he nailed National Treasure's win in the Preakness.

    In addition, he went 4-1 with his five head-to-head Derby picks last year, earning +2.63 units.

    Now, Menez has looked at the 2024 American Turf picks, made his picks and formulated his bets. Join SportsLine here to see them!

    We can tell you that Menez is high on Set, a 10-1 longshot. "This Mark Casse trainee is a perfect 2-for-2 and has more upside than some of these," Menez told SportsLine.

    Moreover, Menez's top pick is a horse who is "formidable." He also is high on a big double-digit longshot who "was coming late" in his last race. Menez will be using these horses in his American Turf picks, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY NEED to see which horses they are before making any 2024 American Turf picks of your own!

    So who wins the 2024 American Turf? What big double-digit longshot is a must-back? And how has Menez constructed his wagers? ... Join SportsLine now to get the top 2024 American Turf picks and bets, all from the expert with a history of Derby success!
