For the record, I’m one of the biggest Mike Smith fans in racing. I have always referred to him in my blogs as “The Money Rider.” – After reading an article in the Paulick Report /Jockey I must admit I was taken aback. I was a little surprised to hear the words “I’m gonna’ […]

Free Selections / Saturday 3-26-16 / Meydan

Last week my beginning stage of handicapping pointed me in the right direction. – I started with taking a starter look last weekend, and then I proceeded to download the Winning Ponies E-Z Win Forms. This allowed me a good start, and after downloading the E-Z Win Forms I examined my bankroll and the path to the betting […]

A New Day

The Cubs had just completed a sweep of the World Series; my brother had paid me back the $20 he owed me, and gasoline was last checked at $1.00 per gallon. – Oh, and after 37 years there is a new Triple Crown winner. You can scrap the first three as they are events that […]

The 55-Year-Old Kid

This is not Benjamin Button, or something out of a Twilight Zone episode. Yes, Virginia. There are 55-year-old kids. – Well, sort of.

You think of that sunny Saturday afternoon, and the electricity in the air at Churchill Downs. […]

It’s a rare opportunity to be invited to the “inner-sanctum.” As a kid you were relegated to find a chair at the kiddie table during Thanksgiving. How many times at work did you watch as were others were invited to the “big meeting” where the issues of the world would be addressed? Yes, it’s fair to say […]

Is This The Year ??

If you have ever watched a race at Belmont, you’ll see sweeping turns where horses and riders get lost. Just ask Stewart Elliot. – A solid reins man who has shipped his tack to Kentucky turned for home three-to-the-good in the Belmont, and like a bolt of lightning. The camera angle changed, and you could […]

When Luck Isn’t Enough

Have you had the feeling that today is your day- Nothing you do goes wrong from the time you get up, and all the day through. Your feet hit the floor, and your newspaper it is on your front stoop. Your coffee maker has brewed the perfect cup of a morning-eye-opener, and it hasn’t tasted better. […]

Guerilla Handicapping

The game has changed, but then again it hasn’t moved a muscle. Once upon a time, there were nine races and few exotic wagers. If you missed the daily double, you might as well stay home. The pools were swelled, and the place was packed. Those were the days of Thoroughbred racing. Bookies were everywhere, […]
