2021 Whitney Stakes Picks and Wagering Guide

This 10-page Inside Track to the Whitney Stakes wagering guide gives you an inside look at the five stakes running at Saratoga on August 7, 2021, including the $1 million Whitney Stakes (G1), a Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Challenge Series event for the Longines Classic.

Maxfield will look to become the fifth winner of the Stephen Foster to subsequently capture the Whitney, joining Awesome Again [1998], Victory Gallop [1999], Blame [2010] and Gun Runner [2017]. His win in that race already assured Maxfield of a spot in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. 

“This year, we’ve got a nice body of races into him which he hasn’t done before,”  trainer Brendan Walsh said. “He hasn’t really missed a beat since December. We’ve spaced his races out good and except for one or two, he’s had four-to-six weeks between starts. He’s still a fresh horse and that’s a good position to be in at this time of year.”

The Racing Dudes have been at it for over 9 years, offering daily handicapping picks and analysis for every track across the country. For this year’s Inside Track to the Whitney Stakes, our lead handicappers have been scouring through the card at Saratoga in search of winning tickets on this loaded day of racing.
