Picks and Ponderings: 2018 Risen Star Stakes and Rachel Alexandra Stakes Preview

This Saturday, things get serious at Fair Grounds.  Since the inauguration of the points system in 2013, 50 points has been far more than enough to get a horse into either the Kentucky Derby or the Kentucky Oaks.  And, Saturday’s card in New Orleans features the first pair of 50-20-10-5 point preps: the $400,000 Risen Star Stakes (G2) for open company, and the $200,000 Rachel Alexandra Stakes (G2) for fillies.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of Saturday’s pair of three-year-old points races at Fair Grounds, and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
