The eyes and bankrolls of handicappers will be focused on Hallandale, Florida for this Saturday. The weather is going to be excellent – Highs in the low 70’s and nothing but sunshine and blue skies in the forecast. – Remember if Mother Nature changes her mind, no problem Winning Ponies has your back with the “change […]

What Do You See ?

                                                  I’ve been on the “D.L.” for a few days, and I’m back in full form. Or, at least back in training. But I digress. – I missed some of the live action this […]

The Beginning of the End ?

Who would have ever thought it would be a pen stroke of legislation that would end racing ? – I guess it eventually does, but now it is taking center stage. If you’ve been on vacation, under a rock, or just didn’t have time to read the racing rags. You may want to see a […]

Make a Racing Bucket List

We’ve all seen the movie, or at least used the term a thousand times. – ” I want to see this track before they make it a shopping mall.” – Good idea as there are more tracks that have fallen by the wayside and they’ll only be visited in pictures. – Maybe you’ve been wanting […]

It’s just business. – This track had seen their best days. A rival track passed full-card simulcasting, and the first stage of riverboat gambling […]

Four Ways to Get Prepared For The Derby / Oaks

There is no secret sauce or magic mojo. All it takes is a little time and plenty of reading and watching replays. If this sounds like a great deal of work, then maybe you’re just not ready to put away the heavy scarf and coat and bring out the light windbreakers and spring time gear. […]

  It’s Saturday, and I start the day like the others. I get up early, sip some OJ, take a shower, and sit back and read. Same routine for years, and sometimes it lasts the entire daytime card. – At other times during the year I have football on the mind, and get ready to sprinkle in great […]

Glimmers of Gold

You’ll know when you see that blinding piece of elegance glimmering. – Maybe you could compare it to Alfred R. Ferguson’s paradoxical poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay.” As it echoes “Nature’s First Green is Gold.” – This past weekend I’m not sure if I saw a glimmer or the real thing. But one thing is […]
