weekend stakes picks and analysis…

Even though Picks and Ponderings usually focuses on Chicago-area races, there was enough big racing that we took a little detour this week, and published picks and analysis for stakes races going on at Santa Anita and Prairie Meadows.  I handicapped the four graded stakes at Santa Anita: the Royal Heroine (GII), the Triple Bend (GI), the Senorita (GIII), and the Gold Cup (GI).  Paul handicapped the three graded stakes in the Iowa Festival at Prairie Meadows: the Iowa Oaks (GIII), the Iowa Derby (GIII), and the Cornhusker Handicap (GIII).

Head on over there to get a look at our perspectives on these races!  Don’t worry, though: we haven’t forgotten about Arlington.  Paul’s analysis of Saturday’s Chicago Handicap (GIII) is live at Picks and Ponderings, and my full-card picks and analysis will be online at Blinkers Off tomorrow!
