America’s Best Racing brand ambassador Jose Contreras – who puts his picks out for the public regularly on his own blog www.losponies.com - will help DerbyJackpot players with his insight in a regular blog feature for ABR.
Each week, Jose will give out his “Best Bet” of the weekend, ideal for a “Monkey Bet” (a win bet) on DerbyJackpot, as well as his Lonshot Play of the weekend, a nice opportunity to swing for the fences on a Monkey Bet or to take a shot with “The Granny” (a show bet, or top-three finish).
Jose also will lay out either a quick-hitting Granny Parlay or a Gonzo Bet. The Granny Parlay essentialy is a bet in which players will have an opportunity to place one Granny bet after another on a sequence of four or five races within an hour or so of each other, essentially letting it ride as they go "all in" search of a nice return on investment. The idea of the parlay is to steadily grow your bankroll until you have a sizeable stash of cash to let it ride on the final leg for a nice payout. The Gonzo Bet requires players to select the first two finishers in a given race in order, the same as a traditional exacta bet.
Place your bets at DerbyJackpot. Races open for betting about five minutes before post time. It’s fun, it’s easy, and you can win cash. Open your account today.

Recap of Last Week
Sunday: It was the last day of racing in the history of Hollywood Park. Selections for the entire card finished as followed: 4th, 2nd, 3rd, 3rd, 3rd, 1st, 9th, 1st, 2nd, 6th, 7th. A couple of winners mixed in with lots of in-the-money finishes. The winners got me back up but the last few races ended up putting me in the negative for the day
Racing has now switched over to Santa Anita Park and I will take a look at the The Robert J Frankel (G3) on Sunday. Instead of multiple plays, i’m going with one $20 win bet today.
(Monkey Bet / Win Bet)
Santa Anita Park Race 8, The Robert J Frankel Stakes, 7:00 p.m. ET
#9 Appealing: Her second-place finish by a head in the G2 Yellow Ribbon at Del Mar was a very good effort. She was closing ground and just missed at the wire. She was defeated by Egg Drop, who later came back to win the G2 Goldikova at Santa Anita and then the G1 Matriarch at Hollywood Park. Appealing has recorded five workouts since her last race, including three consecutive six furlong works. I like that. She gets a good outside post and that should give Corey Nakatani enough clearance to choose the spot he wants to take going into the first turn. She has won on the lead and also when closing from the back of the pack. She’s versatile and I think that will prove to her advantage at today’s distance.
