Horses with Best Chance to Win

Before you can look into a variety of betting opportunities for the upcoming 2024 San Vicente Stakes. Each option presented could emerge as a leading contender, providing compelling choices to enhance your exacta or trifecta wagers.

Pilot Commander 5-2

Pilot Commander has started his career off on a good note. His only race so far was back at the Del Mar Racetrack back in November, where he won the DMR MSW. With good momentum on his side, he has an opportunity to finish well here.

Moonlit Sonata 6-1

Moonlit Sonata also has one race under his belt, which was a win to put his career in a positive direction. This was at Del Mar just like Pilot Commander, which happened a week later at another DMR MSW event. With a good jump out of the gate, he could be in a gold position to win.

Slider 4-1

Slider has done well to start his career off. So far, he has two wins and a second place finish in four starts this year.  He recently competed in the same race as Muth, which was at the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile G1 event. However, Slider placed ninth and was unable to compete as well as the team had wanted. Compared to the field here, he has a quality advantage over a few.
