We are traveling to Gulfstream Park for the Florida Derby this Saturday! The card consists of 14 races, including multiple stakes races. There’s a deep longshot I like in the Florida Derby, so make sure to check all of my picks out!

We rounded off the 2020 campaign picking winners correctly nearly 30% of the time, with a return on investment right around 15%. Although it was somewhat of a small sample size, the returns were positive. Let’s improve those stats going forward!

I’ll be basing my final bets off of the odds come post time. So my bets laid out below are based on the ML odds. I typically will always bet to win, and then add on a place or show bet depending on how long the odds are. Use that at your own discretion! Let’s get into it.
