Last month at Fair Grounds, a promising young colt by the name of Gray Attempt left little doubt about his superiority over a quality field in the Dec. 22 Sugar Bowl Stakes.

A while back, we took a look at what to expect at some of the prime winter meets based on previous years’ results.

Dan’s Double of the Week, featuring handicapping analysis from America’s Best Racing’s New York correspondent Dan Tordjman, is brought to you by, the official online qualifying site of the Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge (BCBC) and National Horseplayers Championship (NHC). offers low-cost feeders every day and BCBC and NHC qualifiers every weekend, and it’s the only site where you can qualify for the $1 million BCBC.

America’s Best Racing, Belle Premium American Vodka, and handicapper (and avid gambler) Monique Vág team up to provide horseplayers with their best bets of the weekend.

Vág will identify her top picks as well as at least one longshot play of the weekend, a nice opportunity to swing for the fences on a win bet or to take a shot with a show bet. She also will occasionally look for strong exacta plays for the weekend or try to spot a nice opportunity for other wagers.

The 75th running of the Grade 3, $200,000 Lecomte Stakes is the first of two prep races at Fair Grounds in New Orleans prior to the $1 million Louisiana Derby on March 23.
