Saturday's Grade 3 Ohio Derby kicks of the "second season" for the 3-year-old division. A field of 10 lines up for the $500,000 race, including Preakness-placed Catching Freedom who was well supported during the Triple Crown season.

With Catching Freedom the likely heavy fave, handicappers will first have to decide if he´s a legitimate standout or is he worth taking a stand against.

A scan of the Betmix Angler online handicapping database reveals that the Avg. Best 2 of Last 3 Speed handicapping factor has pointed to 4 of the last 7 Ohio Derby champions. This group includes Dean Martini, who rewarded his backers with a $31.20 Win mutuel in 2020 and last year's winner, Two Phil's, who scored as the favorite.
