As a special feature for the Kentucky Derby, I asked a handful of well-known contest players for their thoughts on the race. They provided an interesting array of thoughts on the key contenders and some interesting longshots.

As a special feature for the Kentucky Oaks and Derby, I asked a handful of well-known contest players for their thoughts on both races. We’ll start with the Kentucky Oaks. Rich Goodall, 2008 National Handicapping Championship champion “In a wide-open Kentucky Oaks, I like #1 FOREVER UNBRIDLED at 15-1 as a solid value play. Although she has been beaten by a few of these in the past, she was never disgraced, and her breeding suggests that she should relish the extra distance. The addition of Mike Smith in the irons seals the deal for me."

The Public Handicapper Challenge begins Friday. It’s an easy, fun, and free way to qualify for the National Handicapping Championship. Last year, $2.3 million was awarded at the NHC, and the prize pool this year is expected to be the same or higher. To be eligible for the seats, you need to be a member of the NHC Tour.
