Gulfstream opens Saturday, and we all know what that means: Claiming Crown Day!
I love the Claiming Crown — love, love, love the Claiming Crown. As someone who spends so much of my time handicapping, following, and adoring claiming horses, I love that racing takes a day to put them on centre stage.
And, if you are coming into it from more of a wagering perspective? The Claiming Crown features huge, well-matched fields. There’s something in it for everyone.
In my latest piece for Picks and Ponderings, I preview the pair of turf routes, the Emerald and the Tiara. In addition, I will have picks for all nine of Saturday’s stakes races at Gulfstream.
