Weekend Warrior for March 29: Picks for Louisiana Derby, Gulfstream Oaks, Pan American


Saturday is the biggest day of the year at both Gulfstream and Fair Grounds, with the Grade 1, $1 million Florida Derby and the Grade 2, $1 million Louisiana Derby the respective features at the two tracks. Gulfstream has six other graded stakes on its card, and Fair Grounds has three. Unfortunately, weather might be a factor in both places. After another rainy forecast for New Orleans for Friday, there is still a chance for Saturday morning rain there. And there is a 50 percent chance of Saturday afternoon thunderstorms at Gulfstream.
