Horse Racing Schedule And Live Betting Odds For Sat., June 6

Horse Racing News, Notes and Daily Tips From Belmont, Santa Anita and Churchill Downs

The biggest days at the races are the weekends, where the top tracks in America host the biggest stakes races. The Triple Crown races draw tremendous interest from fans, media and horse handicappers and bettors. From the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs to the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park, there is plenty of additional racing that draws interest and betting from many of the top tracks listed below.

Each year culminates with the Breeders’ Cup World Championships the first weekend in November. The best race horses in the world compete for million dollar or more purses as jockeys, trainers and owners guide them to racing riches. The Sport of Kings becomes a world spectacle at the Breeders’ Cup, and Santa Anita (10) and Churchill Downs (9) have hosted the event more than any other tracks. The 2020 Breeders’ Cup is at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky on Nov. 6-7.

Horse Racing News, Notes and Daily Tips

  • For a full racing schedule covering nine racetracks on Sat., June 6, visit the Daily Horse Racing Guide at TheLines, a valuable race and sports betting news site with information you can bet on.
  • The Road to the Kentucky Derby continues Saturday with the 83rd running of Santa Anita Derby (G1). The 1 1/8 mile race drew a field of 7 and serves as a major prep and points (100-40-20-10) qualifier for the Kentucky Derby Sept. 5. Authentic (4/5) and Honor A.P. (9/5) are the horses to beat and Authentic has 60 points on the Kentucky Derby leaderboard, which is likely enough to run in the Derby. Seven stakes races on the Saturday card at Santa Anita includes the Hollywood Gold Cup (G1) and Santa Anita Oaks (G2), which drew just four runners including Swiss Skydiver (6/5), the clear leader on top of the Kentucky Oaks leaderboard.
  • Saturday at Belmont Park has a $101,473 jackpot carryover and a mandatory payout in the Empire 6 covering the final six races with a .20-cent minimum bet. That race sequence includes four straight graded stakes races starting in Race 6 including the Grade 1 Carter Handicap in Race 9.
