Santa Anita Park has a huge Saturday coming up, highlighted by the 2021 Awesome Again Stakes. Medina Spirit, the Kentucky Derby winner, is one of two three-year-olds in the quality field of mostly four-year-olds, but he will be the favorite with morning line odds of 5-2. The other top contenders include Tripoli, Express Train, Tizamagician and Idol, who each have odds ranging from 3-1 to 5-1, respectively.
It will be interesting to see how Medina Spirit will perform in his first race against older horses. Whoever wins this race will emerge as one of the favorites for the Breeders’ Cup Classic in November.

2021 Awesome Again Stakes Betting Odds
Here are the morning line odds and post positions for this years Awesome Again Stakes. These odds are not fixed and will change throughout the day relative to the amount of money bet on each horse.
- Tizamagician 4-1
- Midcourt 12-1
- Express Train 4-1
- Stilleto Boy 20-1
- Medina Spirit 5/2
- Azul Coast 12-1
- Tripoli 3-1
- Idol 5-1
As you can see Medina Spirit is the slight favorite, but Tripoli (3-1), Express Train (4-1), Tizamagician (4-1) and Idol (5-1) are all right there as contenders. It would not be a surprise if any of those five horses came away with the victory on Saturday.
I’m going a little bit off the board and taking the longest odds of the five contenders we outlined above. I like Idol at 5-1 to win the race on Saturday. He hasn’t run since winning the Santa Anita Handicap back in March, but he’s a proven winner who has won 3 of his 6 career races, and he could be coming into the Awesome Again Stakes slightly overlooked.
Medina Spirit is going to be the chalk, and I think rightfully so after he bounced back from his third place finish at the Preakness to win the Shared Belief Stakes last month. That said, I expect to be able to get twice the potential return on Idol, for a similar chance at winning the race, in my opinion.
Play: Idol 5-1
