HorseCenter: Mystic Guide, Knicks Go lead July 4 weekend

Today on HorseCenter, hosts Brian Zipse and Matt Shifman handicap a quartet of stakes races over the Independence Day weekend, led by the Suburban Handicap (G3) at Belmont Park and three races at Prairie Meadows.

The Suburban features a rematch between Mystic Guide and Happy Saver after they were the top two finishers in the 2020 Jockey Club Gold Cup as 3-year-olds.

At Prairie Meadows, Knicks Go will try to get back to the winner’s circle in the Cornhusker Handicap (G3). On the undercard, the 3-year-old fillies race in the Iowa Oaks and the sophomore boys will run in the Iowa Derby.

Have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend and, as always, thanks for watching the show.
