Before you lock in any 2019 Diana Stakes 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 again 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 his exotics in the Arkansas Derby and did it again in the Dixiana Elkhorn Stakes,.
In May, he scored the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, turning a $50.40 bet into $208.57. He's also hit nine of the last 11 Oaks-Derby doubles, meaning he's held a ticket with the winners of both the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby all but twice in the last 11 years. Anyone who has followed him is WAY up.
Now, Demling has analyzed the entire 2019 Diana Stakes field and reveled where every horse will finish.
One shocker: Demling is fading Rushing Fall even though she's one of the favorites at 9-5. In fact, Demling says Rushing Fall barely hits the board.
In her last three victories, Rushing Fall has been the controlling speed, but she's not likely to have that same advantage on Saturday. In addition, the Diana field will undoubtedly be the toughest Rushing Fall has faced in her career.
Instead, Demling says a long shot will hit the board hard at the Diana Stakes. Anyone who backs this horse could be looking at a COLOSSAL payday!
