A competitive field of nine turf milers will enter the starting gate on Memorial Day for the 2019 Shoemaker Mile at Santa Anita Park. Delta Prince is the 5-2 favorite, and post time is 8:03 p.m. ET.
Before you lock in any 2019 Shoemaker Mile picks, you ABSOLUTELY need to see what Jody Demling has to say.
A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling is on a hot handicapping run. In January he nailed the superfecta at the prestigious Pegasus World Cup -- a $678 payout on a $1 bet. The following month he hit the superfecta at the Robert B. Lewis Stakes and correctly picked War of Will to win the Risen Star Stakes.
On April 6, Demling scored the exacta and trifecta in the Santa Anita Derby, Blue Grass Stakes and Wood Memorial on the same day. One week later he hit the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Arkansas Derby. The following week, he nailed the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Dixiana Elkhorn Stakes, winning $408.38 on a $38.40 investment.
And just last week he scored the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, turning a $50.40 investment into $208.57. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
Now, Demling has analyzed the entire 2019 Shoemaker Mile field and released where he believes every horse will finish.
We can tell you that Demling wants no part of River Boyne, the co-fourth choice at 6-1. Trained by Jeff Mullins, this Irish-bred was the best three-year-old turf horse on the West Coast last year. He won six of nine races, including the Grade 2 Mathis Brothers Mile in December.
But he has struggled against older and better competition this year. He is winless in three starts in 2019 and is coming off a second place finish in the Grade 3 San Francisco Mile. The field in the Shoemaker is much tougher than the one in the San Francisco.
Demling is especially high on a horse coming into this race off a loss. If you include him in your exotics, you could be looking at a COLOSSAL payday.
