Horse owner, breeder and HRTV analyst Jeff Siegel also happens to be Southern California's premier handicapper. Check his blog each day before you play!

Yesterday was a good day – a strict adherence to the wagering guidelines in this column produced a $4,262.80 Pick-6 payoff (plus an additional nine “cons” at $62.80) from an investment of $432.00. Not exactly life changing, but we’ll take it. Today’s card is nothing like yesterday’s – or tomorrow’s, which is terrific – so we’ll just have to pick our spots, play conservatively and await Derby Day (and with 40,000 or more expected in attendance tomorrow, be sure to leave for the track early, first post is noon).

Handicapping, in short, refers to analyzing the race to come up with best predicted outcome, or pick. There are many angles when it comes to picking a winner. Using some of the help from the professional handicappers below, you can determine your own angle on placing a bet. For more information on how to bet or wager, click here.
