For the second straight year, "Picks and Ponderings" will also be providing coverage to Thorofan. Last year, coverage was provided for the Illinois Derby and Hawthorne Gold Cup at Hawthorne, the Beverly D. at Arlington, the San Vicente Stakes, and the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf. At Thorofan, a rotating pool of handicappers (typically, but not always, to match the home track of the poster) tackles the week's biggest races.
This week, our picks and ponderings focus on the Thorofan feature race of the week, the G2 San Vicente Stakes at Santa Anita. Do note that the post time given on the piece is for Pacific Time (Santa Anita is in Southern California). Therefore, the race has a post time of 3:36 pm PT, which is also 5:56 pm CT.
Good luck this weekend!
