Oaks – Derby Double

Everyone has liked the wager that combines the winner of the Oaks and the winner of the Derby. It can pay better than expected, and with the many dollars in the pool, this may be the day to wager with both hands.

In race #11 at 5:45 p.m. you may see one of the best females in the land run off and hide. This gal just gets the hook, and away she goes.

She is #6 Rachel Alexandra, and Calvin Borel has the mount for trainer Hal Wiggins. She sports a “monster workout” icon and that is the truth. She has worked 4 panels in 46.2, and 5f in 59.2. Now, this is proof she is ready. The big trick is coupling her with the right guy the next day.

Let us try the following runners to complete the wager:

#7 Summer Bird – #2 Musket Man – #7 Papa Clem – #19 Desert Party.

All of these lads have the odds that may make the wager payoff handsome, and with a little luck, you may take a 3-5 favorite and parlay it into a very nice weekend.

Good luck, and enjoy the races.
