2022 Florida Derby Picks and Wagering Guide Presale

The 2022 $1 million Curlin Florida Derby (G1) is set for April 2, 2022 at Gulfstream Park! With 10 stakes totaling $2.2 million in purses, the Racing Dudes have you covered with the most comprehensive Florida Derby wagering guide available. Plus get TWO bonus races: the $1.25 million Arkansas Derby (G1) and the $600,000 Fantasy Stakes (G3) at Oaklawn Park.

Can the dominate Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) winner Simplification get it done again? His trainer Antonio Sano thinks so.

“I’m so happy. He is doing great. I know there are good horses in the race, but my horse is getting stronger and stronger.”
