Picks and Ponderings: Stephen Foster Day Preview

American Pharoah has won the Triple Crown.  He will make an appearance at Churchill on Saturday evening, but it will hardly be interesting or useful to handicap that part of the day.  Odds are 1/20 that he will look shiny, and that people will cheer a lot.

However, there are four graded stakes races Saturday night at Churchill Downs, including a pair of Breeders’ Cup Win and You’re In races for the Classic and Distaff divisions.  We tackle the sequence at Picks and Ponderings.  I take a look at the Stephen Foster Handicap (GI) for the handicap division, as well as the Matt Winn Stakes (GIII) for three-year-olds on dirt.  Paul Mazur turns his attention to the Fleur de Lis Handicap (GII) for the older distaffers, and the Regret Stakes (GIII) for three-year-old grass fillies.  The races will comprise an all-stakes Pick 4.

Head on over to Picks and Ponderings, read our previews of the stakes on Stephen Foster day, and let us know what you think!
