It’s always striking to see how inclusion on the “Road to the Kentucky Derby” prep race schedule can transform otherwise ordinary stakes races into can’t-miss events filled with classy horses.

It will not be long before racing returns to the land of the Ozarks for one of the year’s most popular meets.

Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Ark., raises the curtain on its 2020 meet Jan. 24, bringing with it big fields and even bigger purses for three months of sensational racing.

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).

If you like betting both football and horse racing, you've come to the right place!

Each week in Pigskins and Ponies you'll find analysis and key football bets from Payne Insider and Todd Fuhrman plus racing picks from Jose Contreras.

America’s Best Racing 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.
