Derby Trail – 3/20/17

With every passing weekend the first Saturday in May comes into view. – I have to admit the picture is still a little fuzzy but it is starting to take shape. I’m still leaning toward a long-shot payoff, but that’s why they run the races. There are only 47 days left till post time, and […]

Road to the Derby – 3/14/17

Another weekend has passed and the road to the Derby is murky and cluttered. That doesn’t mean it won’t come clean in the wash and we’ll see as far as an Irish Spring commercial. Only time will tell. – You need to keep to task and watch the replays, comb over the charts, and read […]

Free Selections – Saturday – 3/10/17

It’s Big Cap weekend and there are some other preps that are calling you to action ! – As always, use these as some food for thought before downloading your E-Z Win Forms and receiving the best handicapping data to make your day a winner. This is when the tempo picks up and the preps […]

Road to the Derby – 3/4/17

As the preps come and go, Derby dreams fade in and out like an old TV. You remember ? The TV your grandpa used to watch baseball games. Sometimes it came in as clear as day, and other times it took a while before you see what’s happening. That’s the thought rolling through my head […]

Road to the Derby – 2/25/17

There was more going on in the “Big Easy” than Mardi Gras. A field of eleven runners assembled at Fair Grounds and like the party in New Orleans. This was a coming out party to celebrate new faces, and question for some tried and true players. – As we’re 69 days away from the first […]

“Problem Ponies” – Horses to Watch

The second jewel is in the books and we won’t be seeing a Triple Crown winner this year. That’s ok, as we waited 37 years for the last one, and I sure want the racing world to not assume it’s so easy we’ll just run off three or four in a row. – The fast […]

Why Do You Like ?

Post time draws closer with the passing of every minute and the second jewel of the Triple Crown is up for grabs. For the sake of being master of the obvious, only one can be the next Triple Crown winner. But the bigger question begs, “is this the year we keep it going ?” – […]

Derby Day Report Card

  The big day was upon and I was locked and loaded. – I guess that means I had my E-Z Win Forms in hand and bankroll burning a hole in my pocket. Last year I started slow and went on fire late in the card. I was wondering how the day would treat me […]

After the Smoke Clears

It has been a couple of days since Derby 142 and I think many questions have been answered. Nyquist was as good as advertised and we may have more to see. But that my friends is what the next two weeks leading to Baltimore are all about. As quoted in the Blood Horse.com; “Unbeaten, unblemished, […]
