Weekend Stakes Action: Spiral & Sunland Derby Edition

New, 144 comments

More horses and hoops: graded stakes action from across the country and the 3rd round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament.

So many betting options. So little time.

The Grade 2 Pan American Stakes at 12 furlongs and the Grade 2 Santa Anita Stakes for older fillies and mares at nine furlongs lead this weekend's graded stakes action, while Turfway and Sunland Park offer a pair of prep races on the official Road to the 2013 Kentucky Derby.

Oh, and the Rainbow Pick 6 at Gulfstream Park is on the move again: the carryover has reached $1.1 million.

Just like last weekend, I'll be wearing out the remote switching between racing action and NCAA basketball, although I don't know if my bracket can get any uglier than it already is!
