I’m sitting here on this cold and rainy morning. – My senses are alive and it’s time to start thinking bigger. – Yes, I said bigger. Think of this week as an opportunity rather than betting. I’m talking about finding your best opportunities, and not finding 15 races to plunk down a bet for action. There is a big difference between making a bet and finding solid wagering investments. I’m starting to hone in on the action as we start the bankroll building process. If you need a little glimpse of what I bring to the table, here’s a small look into me as a player/writer/handicapper.

  • I’ve worked at five race tracks. – I’ve had the great opportunity to work in every aspect of management, marketing, public relations, ADW coordinator, player development manager, odds-maker, track announcer, writer, and blogger.
  • The host of four radio shows, an Internet radio show host, and an on-air handicapper. I have provided content and racing selections for TV, and been a special guest on radio shows highlighting marquee races.
  • I’ve constantly strived to improve my game. I have access to multiple sources of real information to give me an edge. There has not been a day that I haven’t learned something new to prepare for the next day of wagering.
  • I have won and qualified in multiple horse racing contests over the years.
  • I listen to your needs. My goal is to share the info and make you a better player. – I lead by example, and if I give out a wager you can bet dollars to donuts (good or bad) I have my own money right on the line right with you.

I’m preparing for a run. Not taking a 5-mile jog, but getting ready to find the answers. This is the best time of the year to focus on horse racing.

You can bet football, baseball, or soccer, but how much do you really know? I’m sure you do your homework and prepare to make your best investments. But, we are battling a pandemic, and just take a step back and look at the physical injuries due to lack of proper practice, restrictions, or no pre-season games. Smaller seasons make it tough to get a read on the game. – Racing has not stopped since the pandemic has curtailed many sports. Horses are still being trained, and now more than ever you’ll have more access to horse racing on sports TV. Horse racing is taking an introspective look at how to improve. We know the public is showing greater interest and what better time than now to give the players the best opportunity.

From this point on, we’re going to start having focused plays to build your bankroll. –  There will not be ten races from one track. It might be two, or it may be a couple of races from focus tracks. – Here are a few plays for Wednesday at Keeneland. The weather is supposed to be good for Wednesday and Thursday, but Friday may bring the rain. So, let’s take a look at a few plays on Wednesday to start the week.


Wednesday / Keeneland

Race #3 – Mdn Sp Wt – 1 mile on the turf – 2:12 pm

#2 – Tiz Splendid News (2-1) = This filly is shipping in from KyD and just missed as an odds-on favorite. Wesley Ward is the trainer and he wins 15% going a sprint to a route and 21% on a second race effort. Look for big speed from the red-hot Gerardo Corrales who is winning 25% at the meet and 24% with early style runners. KyD runners are going on to score on turf, dirt, and poly. The undulating turf course in Kentucky is the only European course in the nation.


Race #4 – Mdn Claiming $30,000 – 6f – 2:45 pm

#4 – Snowblind (3-1) = He comes off a bad trip at KyD and is dropping down in class for Steve Asmussen who wins 20% going to mdn claiming and 21% going from turf to dirt. Gerardo Corrales in the irons and he is winning 36% for Asmussen. The trainer /combo is 2 for 2 with wins the past two weeks.


Race#6 – Alw $73,000 N2X – 1 1/16 on the turf – 3:51 pm

#2 – Pass the Plate (2-1) = the conditions of the race fit this filly for Paul McGee. Julien Leparoux in the saddle and she broke her maiden at Keeneland this time last year. She is a stone-cold closer and owns a bullet work after a two-month layoff. Take a look at the four races Leparoux has ridden her and you’ll know he fits like a glove.
