all in Gambling

America’s Best Racing and handicapper (and avid gambler) Monique Vág team up to provide horseplayers with their best bets of the weekend in a regular feature blog that will run on Fridays.

For some posts, Vág will try to identify a 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 look for strong exacta plays for the weekend or occasionally try to spot a nice opportunity for other wagers.

The 83rd running of the Grade 3, $500,000 Ohio Derby at Thistledown is a very interesting race in which top jockey Mike Smith comes in to ride Girvin, the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby winner who is seeking redemption for a 13th-place effort in the Kentucky Derby.

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).

The previous weekend, it was Belmont Stakes day and a 13-race card with 10 stakes. Last weekend, it was Churchill Downs’ turn to celebrate a big day, or more precisely, a big evening of racing.
