HorseCenter: Top picks for Alabama Stakes, Queen's Plate


This week on HorseCenter, your hosts Brian Zipse and Matt Shifman offer analysis and top picks for the Grade 1 Alabama Stakes from Saratoga and the Queen's Plate from Woodbine. The guys also provide a look ahead to next weekend's Travers Stakes (G1).

The Alabama features the third meeting of Nest and Secret Oath. Secret Oath won the Kentucky Oaks, and Nest romped in the recent Coaching Club American Oaks (G1).

The Queen’s Plate, which drew a field of 11 3-year-olds, is the first leg of the Canadian Triple Crown. The morning-line favorite is a filly, Moira, who is 3-for-4 on her career, including a win in the recent Woodbine Oaks.

A large field is expected for the Travers, which be run at Saratoga next Saturday. Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike and Preakness winner Early Voting are probable for the 1 1/4 mile Midsummer Derby along with graded-stakes winners Epicenter, Cyberknife, Charge It and Zandon.


Enjoy the weekend of racing and, as always, thanks for watching the show
