Before you lock in any 2019 Ohio Derby picks, you 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.
In April, 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.
In May, he scored the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, turning a $50.40 investment into $208.57. Then, he hit the trifecta and superfecta at the Gamely Stakes. He hit the superfecta at the Pegasus Stakes last week, too, and has nailed nine of the last 11 Derby-Oaks doubles. That means he's held a ticket with the winners of both races all but twice in the last 11 tries. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
Now, Demling has analyzed the entire 2019 Ohio Derby field and released where he says every horse will finish.
We can tell you that Demling is fading Bethlehem Road, one of the Vegas favorites at 6-1. In fact, Demling says Bethlehem Road barely hits the board. The horse is unbeaten, but has yet to face the competition he'll see on Saturday.
Instead, Demling is all over a horse who's "sitting on a big race" and primed for a coming-out party. Anyone who backs this horse could be looking at a COLOSSAL payday!
