Who: Thoroughbreds – Union Rags (key horse, use with El Padrino)
What: Horse Racing Betting Tips – The $1,000,000 Florida Derby
Where: Gulfstream Park
When: Saturday, March 31st

The Florida Derby at Gulfstream is the first Grade 1 of the season for sophomores and the winner will try to follow the sports betting footsteps of Monarchos (2001), Barbaro (2006) and Big Brown (2008) who went on to win the Kentucky Derby.

Carded at 9 furlongs other legends like Northern Dancer, Alydar, and Spectacular Bid have also parlayed success in this race into glory the first Saturday in May.

Last year, Dialed In pushed the right digits and made it three for four in his career to date when getting up by a head in 1:50 with a 93 Beyer.

They will all have to try to put a strangle hold on Union Rags, who rebounded from his head beat in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile by coming away with a 4-length win in his Gulfstream debut in the Florida Derby where he posted a 95 Beyer.

He has trained steadily for this for his mentor Michael Matz and figures to appreciate the added distance today.

Take Charge Indy opened his online sportsbook career with a sprint win on the synthetic at Arlington in Chicago but has lost 4 straight since. He gave up a clear lead in last and that is never a pretty sight.

El Padrino has a penchant for finding the wire as his 3 for 5 record suggests. He has a super stalk and pounce style and should be a major factor here.

Reveron is taking a shot. He last race at Tampa and got tired going a mile and a sixteenth. His best asset could be his tactical speed but he also comes out of a live race as the place horse in last took the Tampa Derby earlier in the month.

Most of Fort Loudon’s success has come in state-bred events and he was crushed in his only three Graded efforts. He will be a huge price.

Bartolome handled slop to kick off his career, but has not been able to close the deal since.

Neck N Neck took several races to figure it out and with limited speed, he will be at the mercy of how the race sets up and if he can find a lane to rally into in time.

News Pending is an interesting colt. He was up close in the Fountain of Youth and eventually lost by 4 to Union Rags. One of the best things he has going for him is that he has won at 9 furlongs on the grass.

Z Camelot has already been handled by News Pending and as a maiden; he has his work cut out.

This is the way it figures to unfold: Take Charge Indy will gun and make the top. News Pending will be in hot pursuit with El Padrino and Union Rags in the next flight.

At the top of the lane, Union Rags will assert himself and make the lead and El Padrino will pass pacesetter News Pending to complete the exacta.

Good luck with your sportsbook betting.
