Think of this as a report card on what’s happening in the world of racing from a handicapper’s eyes and ears. – I listen to the players. I’ve always enjoyed that part, and the players have always been the best part of racing. – For years that’s been my stance, and it’s not to say there aren’t […]

What’s Running ?

We are in the void of no marquee races and the holidays are arriving. – I’m sitting in front of my computer and had the day all to myself. Shopping done, cleaned the house, shave and a shower, and fired up my laptop. I dropped a few shekels in my account, and the day was […]

My View From the Grandstand

There are things that need to be addressed; some need to be left alone, and others that continue to amaze. During the last few days I’ve seen a little sampling of each in racing. – As fans, we are the lifeblood that keeps the game alive. We are riding the high wave of 2015, and now […]
