Jody Demling absolutely nailed the 2017 Travers Stakes. Despite Tapwrit entering as the favorite and the field being headlined by three Triple Crown race winners, Demling was all over West Coast to win at 6-1. The result: The Bob Baffert-trained West Coast led wire to wire in a dominant victory. Anyone who followed Demling's advice won BIG.
Demling has an uncanny feel for this race and this track. With the $1.25 million Travers Stakes set for Saturday at Saratoga, Demling analyzed the 11-horse field and released where he says every horse will finish.
We can tell you he's not going with 2-1 morning-line favorite Good Magic, saying the Kentucky Derby runner-up makes a strong run but comes up short. The 1 1/4-mile track isn't ideal for him.
Instead, Demling is backing a monster long shot that oddsmakers are vastly underrating. Anyone who bets on him could be in for a HUGE payday. He's including him in his exactas, trifectas, and superfectas, and so should you.
