Patience and Confidence

With the doors opening at Gulfstream, Tampa, and Fair Grounds still early in the meet you will want to employ patience. I have found that following the tried and true methods usually kick back in to full gear. Now more than ever, your E-Z Win Forms are stat ready in real-time to help you pick up where you left off last year.


The rider colony is getting better by the day, and you will not want to miss out on one minute. With names like Lezcano, Velasquez, Cohen, Castellano, Rosario, Prado, Lanerie, and Lopez. The trainer ranks read like the who’s who in racing, and when they team up together good things happen. I want to make my two donut wager right now. The Derby favorite will appear later in the meet, and will make his presence felt on the first Saturday in May.


They used to be know as “River Downs” south, and there wasn’t much to watch in years gone by. But that was then and this is now. The fields are full, and the riders are quite a bit better now than back in the day. Trainers target the track, and especially be on the lookout for Gulfstream outfits shipping over for the day. They are definitely there for the money. The quality of big namers grows every year heading to Louisville.

Fair Grounds

So far, the fields have been shorter than I have seen in the past. I feel they will level out, and when the shippers make their way to the “Big Easy.” Watch out for trainers Stall, Hawley, Calhoun, Broberg, Roussel, Maker, and Amoss. If you are looking for the “Queen” of the oval, look no further than the fire-ball Rosie Napravnik. She knows the oval, and is making the Cajun-riders get used to running second.

The E-Z Win Forms are effective when used to pick up on your game. They have all stats for riders and trainers, and offer real-time scratches, changes, and track conditions that may change in the blink of an eye. So, go ahead and get your game on with confidence, and let the professionals get you off to a red-hot start!

Best of luck!
