What a weekend at the Spa as we watch Songbird suffer only her second career defeat, Practical Joke is a force around one turn, Lady Eli continues to shine after defeating the odds against laminitis, and finally Bob Baffert wins a couple including another Travers with West Coast. My one feeling after Saturday is a question...Who is leading the 3 year old division now? Let me know on twitter or post below on Facebook. We try and close out Travers week with a few wins on this Monday card, good luck!

Every day throughout the meet, our horse racing insider Brian "The Closer" Mariano will give you his picks to help you win at the windows. The picks will be in order of preference and will include a late pick 4 ticket and a best bet on the card!
