The Haskell Stakes is the biggest race that comes to Monmouth Park Racetrack in New Jersey each year. There is a nice $1,000,000 purse and the Grade 1 race is part of the Breeders’ Cup Challenge series that rewards the winner with a spot in the Breeders’ Cup Classic this November. This years race is also awarding points on the road to the Derby due to the Kentucky Derby being pushed to September this year.
This years race features three high quality horses who each still have a real chance at winning this years Kentucky Derby. Authentic is the favorite at 4-5, coming off a second place finish at the Santa Anita Derby last month, while Dr Post (5-2) is the next favorite after his second place finish at the Belmont Stakes a few weeks back. Ny Traffic is the other contender with odds of 7-2.
In this article I will look at the morning line odds for the 2020 Haskell Stakes and also provide a 3 step guide to getting your bets in on this race come Saturday.
2020 Haskell Stakes Odds
Here are the morning line odds and post positions for this years edition of the Haskell Stakes. It’s important to remember that your bet will not be fixed at these odds. The odds will change throughout the day depending on the amount of money that comes in on each horse.
- Dr Post 5-2
- Authentic 4-5
- Jesus’ Team 15-1
- Ancient Warrior 20-1
- Fame to Famous 30-1
- Lebda 20-1
- Ny Traffic 7-2
I like Dr Post to win this race at odds of 5/2. He finished second to Tiz the Law at the Belmont Stakes and won both of his previous races this year. I think he’s the real deal and should be able to get the win this Saturday.
Jesus’ Team is another horse I’m interested in as a long shot at 15-1. He finished 2nd to Sole Volante in his maiden race last month and showed that he could be a contender with some experience under his belt.
I don’t think Authentic has faced the same competition as Dr Post, which is the main reason I don’t like him at very short 4-5 odds.
Play: Dr Post 5/2
