Rebel Stakes Preview

If you want to watch some other sporting event besides college basketball without taking the time to watch and NBA or NHL game, then on Saturday night check out horse racing’s Rebel Stakes. The $500,000 race is the biggest prize we’ve seen thus far on The Road To The Triple Crown, and with only one clear favorite in a 12-horse field there’s a chance to look at longshot when the race at Arkansas’ Oaklawn Park goes off at 6:45 PM ET (TVG & HR-TV on your sports channel listing). TheSportsNotebook takes a look at the favorite, the three most likely challengers and a couple of long, longshots.
