What was to have been the $1-million Rebel Stakes with 85 Kentucky Derby points up for grabs is now a pair of $750,000 Rebel Stakes worth 63.75 each, including 37.5 to the winners.

And the extra race, money, and points attracted some extra good horses, including a pair of undefeated two-year-olds from Racing Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert making their three-year-old debuts: champion Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner Game Winner and Grade 1 winner Improbable. Baffert has won 6 of the past 9 Rebel Stakes, including the 2015 edition with eventual Triple Crown champion Horse of the Year American Pharoah.

James Scully of joins Ed DeRosa of the Radio Network to discuss wagering on both divisions of the Rebel. Can Baffert be opposed? Which is his more likely winner? Ed and James disagree on these topics and more!
