2022 Haskell Stakes odds, field, lineup: Expert who called Kentucky Derby shares surprising picks, predictions


The post-Triple Crown season kicks off in earnest on Saturday when the starting gate opens in the 2022 Haskell Stakes at Monmouth Park. The 2022 $1million Haskell Stakes is the first major race for three-year-olds since the Belmont Stakes and traditionally serves as a warm-up race for the Travers Stakes next month in Saratoga. With the three-year-old picture still up in the air, the 2022 Haskell Invitational could also help determine who takes home the Eclipse Award as top three-year-old this year.

Santa Anita Derby winner Taiba, trained by Bob Baffert, is the morning line favorite 7-5 in the 2022 Haskell Stakes odds. Undefeated Jack Christopher is 3-2 in the eight-horse field of the Haskell Stakes 2022, while Florida Derby winner White Abarrio is 5-1. Publication time is 5:45 p.m. ET. Given the shocking results we’ve seen in the Triple Crown races, you’ll want to see what astute racing journalist and analyst Michelle Yu has to say before making any picks for the 2022 Haskell Stakes.

Few people in racing are as well-connected as Yu. A host and on-air journalist who has provided racing analysis for TVG, HRTV and the Breeders’ Cup, Yu has spent his life in racing. Prior to her television career, she worked for coaches Steve Asmussen and Ron Moquett. She is also married to Santa Anita-based trainer Ryan Hanson.

Yu also has huge crippling chops. In the 2011 Kentucky Derby, she correctly tabbed Animal Kingdom to win at a hefty 21-1. In the 2017 Breeders’ Cup, they beat Wuheida 11-1 away to win the Filly and Mare Turf. Last year, in a wide-open Kentucky Derby, she beat Medina Spirit, who crossed the finish line first, as the 12-1 winner. In Pool 5 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager this year, she suggested a play on All Other 3-Year-Olds, who took a whopping 18-1 when Rich Strike won the Derby.

Since joining SportsLine in November, her picks have been cashed in the Breeders’ Cup Classic, Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint, Sham Stakes, El Camino Real Derby, San Felipe Stakes, Santa Anita Handicap, Kentucky Oaks and the Preakness Stakes. And in last month’s Belmont Stakes, she reached the top two. Everyone who followed her is upstairs.

Now Yu has handicapped the 2022 Haskell Stakes field, given his horse-by-horse analysis, made his picks and built his bets. See them here.

Best Haskell Stakes 2022 Predictions

A surprise: Yu, who has studied the results of each of the eight participants in the race, likes what she sees from Cyberknife, even though he is far in the Haskell Stakes 2022 lineup at 6-1. Trained by Brad Cox and ridden by Florent Geroux, Cyberknife has improved since February, winning three of his last four starts. On June 12, he rebounded from his 18th place finish in the Kentucky Derby with a victory in the Matt Winn Stakes.

Yu was impressed with how Cyberknife fought back to win by the nose in this race, showing that he is still improving as a horse. “I still think there’s ground to be discovered here,” she told SportsLine. Yu uses Cyberknife prominently in his Haskell Stakes 2022 bets. Find out who else to choose here.
