HorseCenter: Coast-to-coast Saturday stakes analysis

This week on HorseCenter, co-hosts Brian Zipse and Matt Shifman analyze five graded stakes races on Saturday at Santa Anita Park and Belmont Park.

The Santa Anita Derby (G1), which is a points race on the road to the 2020 Kentucky Derby, features the rematch between Authentic and Honor A. P.  The seven-furlong Carter Handicap (G1) at Belmont Park brings together the top sprinters Mind Control, Firenze Fire, and Vekoma who will compete for a spot in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint.

Code of Honor, the winner of last year’s Travers (G1) and Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1), makes his 2020 debut in the Westchester (G3) in New York.

Have a peaceful and winning weekend and, as always, thanks for watching the show.
