Plenty of resources can tell you about the horses running in the Belmont Stakes or even who will win, but how to bet on the 3rd jewel of the Triple Crown is a separate challenge. Let the experts at TwinSpires.com, the official wagering platform of the Kentucky Derby, help you out.
How To Bet the All-Grade 1 Pick 4 on Travers Stakes day 2017
Ed DeRosa called the Travers Stakes day card on Saturday, August 26, at Saratoga Race Course, the best non-Breeders' Cup card in the history of the American Turf, and beyond a highly competitive Midsummer Derby is a graded stakes slate featuring many of the top superstars in training.
The graded stakes action kicks off with the Personal Ensign Stakes, the first of six Grade 1s on the card and featuring champion Songbird against multiple Grade 1 winner Forever Unbridled. The action continues with the Ballerina Stakes before moving onto the all-Grade 1 Pick 4 of the Jerkens for three-year-olds going 7 furlongs, the Forego for older sprinters going 7 furlongs, the Sword Dancer at 1 1/2 miles, and the Travers.
Ed DeRosa and Scott Shapiro discuss each race as well as their wagering strategy for clobbering the Pick 4.

Best horse racing podcast I've found
Enough news and analysis for weekend handicappers like myself. It's more in depth than just a show about horses. Not as boring as a show only focused on gambling strategies. Nice in-between. If I'm only downloading one horse racing podcast, this is it.
Derek is a very good host and puts a unique spin on horse racing which you can't find anywhere else.
