Weekend Warrior for Saturday, June 24: Picks for Ohio Derby, Chicago Handicap, Jersey Shore Stakes


NEW YORK – With a very light stakes schedule for a summer Saturday, the Grade 3, $500,000 Ohio Derby at Thistledown is easily the richest race of the day. Santa Anita has a Grade 3, $100,000 stakes doubleheader with the Affirmed and Precisionist, but while the Precisionist is interesting, both races drew fields of only five. The only other graded stakes on Saturday is the Grade 3, $100,000 Chicago Handicap at Churchill Downs.
