Horse racing continues to take place daily during the coronavirus pandemic, and on Wednesday two Kentucky Derby contenders trained by Patrick Biancone--Ete Indien and Sole Volante--square off in an optional-claiming race at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla. Ete Indien won the Fountain of Youth Stakes in February before finishing third in the Florida Derby. Sole Volante won the Sam F. Davis Stakes in February before finishing second in the Tampa Bay Derby. Ete Indien has been installed as the 6-5 morning-line favorite in Race 9, a one-mile race that drew seven entrants. Sole Volante is the 9-5 second choice.
The race is the third leg of the late Pick 4, which requires a bettor to pick the winner in four consecutive races. The Pick 4 begins with Race 7 at 3:09 p.m. ET. National handicapping champion Jonathon Kinchen has handicapped each of the four races in the late Pick 4, and with the sequence featuring competitive fields, you'll want to see his horse racing best bets before building any late Pick 4 tickets at Gulfstream Park for Wednesday, June 10.
Kinchen is one of the nation's most successful and recognizable horseplayers. An analyst for Fox Sports' "Saturday at the Races," Kinchen won the National Horseplayers Championship Tour in 2015, a demanding, yearlong series of handicapping events across the country. That same year, he became the only player in history to have both of his entries qualify for the final table of the National Horseplayers Championship.
In addition, Kinchen has scored huge on some of racing's biggest days. At the 2015 Kentucky Derby, he cashed for $150,000 after nailing a Pick 6 and a $300 Pick 3 that paid $50,000. He also hit a Pick 4 for $84,000 on Belmont Stakes day in 2010, one of several five-figure days he has had at the track.
He's currently riding a hot streak on his horse racing picks for SportsLine. In the Fountain of Youth Stakes in February, Kinchen nailed an $80 win bet on Ete Indien that paid a healthy $344. In the Beholder Mile in March, he gave out a $50 exacta that paid $550. In the Apple Blossom Handicap, he nailed a $25 win bet on Ce Ce, which paid $245. On April 11, he crushed the Oaklawn Stakes, giving out a $5 exacta that paid a whopping $1,338. On May 27 he hit a $1.50 Pick 4 at Tampa Bay Downs that paid $1,227. He also hit the Pick 4 at tracks around the country a whopping five times in April. Anyone who has followed him is up big.
Now, Kinchen has handicapped the late Pick 4 at Gulfstream Park for Wednesday, June 10, made his picks and constructed his tickets. Head to SportsLine to see his best bets.
