Now, WinningPonies.com is doing well with the “Big-Uns,” and we want to jump-start your weekend. Just get out your pencil, and be sure to dial us up to maximize your value.

Let’s look at Gulfstream for Saturday, 1/31. You will want to begin in the 2nd at GP. Take a look at Optimer. Edgar Prado in the irons for Richard Dutrow. They have been winning 27% together the last sixty days. Second back off a layoff, and was a beaten favorite last out. This is a bettor’s angle, and look for an up-close stalking trip to the winners circle.

Go then to the 7th at GP. You need to get ready with multi-race exotics, and don’t forget to include: Danger To Society. Robby Albarado in the saddle for Ken McPeek. He was high on this runner, and is 2/2 looking to make it a triple. McPeek brings them ready, and his sire Harlan’s Holiday is hotter than jalapeno juice. If this guy wins, don’t be surprised to see very little of him before the Kentucky Derby.

We end out finally with the 8th at GP. You need to take a hard look at Nicanor. He is a full brother to Barbaro, and his dam is 100% with her babies at the races. This week is the anniversary of losing Barbaro, but maybe little brother can give us a glimpse of something special.

Be sure to check in with WinningPonies.com before you take your money to the windows. This could be a very hot weekend, so dress for the weather…
