The Editor of Horse Racing Nation from 2010-2017, Brian Zipse is now a Senior Writer for HRN, where he continues to contribute his thoughts on racing. He also hosts the popular weekly YouTube program HorseCenter. Brian is a voter for racing's Hall of Fame, as well as a weekly NTRA poll voter. You can also find him regularly on most of the social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter. Based in Kentucky, Brian will join “The Regular Guy” to discuss his impressions of the Derby Preps thus far, then they will handicap the last minor points race (20-8-4-2) on the Saturday Program. They will also tackle the G1, $500,000 Jenny Wiley on the grass and the G3, $150,000 Ben Ali, a race that has been contested since 1917. Mary Rampellini is a correspondent and handicapper for Daily Racing Form. She began contributing to the publication in 1996. She is a native of Hartford, Connecticut, and grew up in a racing family. Her father, Ralph Rampellini, was the racing manager for Nelson Bunker Hunt in the 1980s and also broke a crop of 100 to 120 yearlings for him each year at Hunt's training center in North Texas. Ralph Rampellini later served as a racing manager and trainer for John Franks. Mary is currently based in Hot Springs, Ark., and Grand Prairie, Texas, covering Oaklawn Park and Lone Star Park as well as major stakes at other tracks in Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma. The G1, $1 Million Arkansas Derby is the last major Kentucky Derby points. At least the top two finishers will earn a berth in the starting gate on the First Saturday in May. Mary has been at Oaklawn Park for the entire season and she should be able to bring sharp insight to this marquee race in Hot Springs. Mary and John will also discuss the fine fields drawn to the rich G3, $500,000 Count Fleet and the $400,000 Oaklawn Mile.
