Problem Ponies – Horses to Watch – 9/19/16

There is nothing like watching a race where a runner didn’t have the best of days, and even better if you’re able to document the horse and follow them back to the windows next out. – Keep an eye on these runners, and be sure to check them against the Winning Ponies E-Z Win Forms to see where they fit against the competition next time to the races. – Best of luck from your friends at Winning Ponies !
