FanDuel TV's Simon Bray, Mike Joyce, Caleb Keller, Joaquin Jaime, Christina Blacker and Kurt Hoover will be live from Santa Anita with exclusive interviews, expert analysis and behind-the-scenes coverage and the coverage will also include the utilization of the popular Jockey Cam as well as a drone camera.

With 50-20-15-10-5 Kentucky Derby points on the line in the $400,000 San Felipe Stakes (G2), the race has drawn a field of eleven Triple Crown hopefuls. Tim Yakteen will saddle five contenders including Practical Move, the winner of the Los Alamitos Futurity (G2). The $500,000 Santa Anita Handicap (G1) has attracted a field of eleven older horses including Proxy, a homebred for Godolphin for trainer Michael Stidham. The Grade 1 winner was last seen finishing fifth in the Pegasus World Cup (G1) and will be ridden by John Velazquez.

The stakes-laden card from Gulfstream Park on Saturday features nine stakes races culminating in the $500,000 Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) with 50-20-15-10-5 Kentucky Derby qualifying points on the line for the top five finishers. FanDuel TV will have expanded coverage of the fourteen-race card with insights, analysis and interviews from Todd Schrupp, Scott Hazelton, Andie Biancone, Matt Bernier, Larry Collmus and Caton Bredar.
