Racing Dudes 2021 Rebel Stakes Wagering Guide and Picks

Bob Baffert has been represented by 13 horses in the Rebel Stakes (G2) – at least one starter every year since his first in 2010 – and has won the race a record seven times, finished second three times and third once, bankrolling $3,171,000 in purses.

“The reason I’ve been so successful is I’ve brought some serious horses up there,” Baffert said. “I usually try to bring my best horses there.”

The Hall of Fame trainer looks for an eighth Rebel victory when he sends out unbeaten Concert Tour and recent maiden graduate Hozier in Saturday’s $1 million race  for 3-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles at Oaklawn Park.
