There wasn’t a down time or lack of interest. The horses were hot and the marquee tracks ruled the roost. If you’ve been following our place parlay action focused on Saratoga, you would’ve seen some big plays and close calls. But, at the end of the day it wasn’t the wagering that took center stage for […]

Who Do You Like??

I’m the biggest racing and football fan in the world. The days when I can watch and wager on the ponies, and still see the opening kickoff is a real bonus in my man-cave. I know there are plenty of fans like me, and while we’re counting down until opening kickoff. I wanted to see […]

There are many trainers who fly under the radar. I have been watching one particular conditioner for quite some time. One of the things I learned the hard way is to never leave him off your wagers. With that in mind, I contacted Mr. Gorder and we talked horses. After our conversation, I left with two thoughts; I think […]

The track is like a holy place of worship. Where else in the world can you hear thousands of fans speaking to their maker with wishful tones all at once?  I have seen some of the biggest, best, and most interesting players in the sport. Not because I had a special seat, or had a ticket […]

It’s Post Time!

If you play horses from home or at the office, there may have been a time you bet a buck or two on races from Aintree, Ascot, Ayr,  Cheltenham, Doncaster, or Kempton. I am guilty and have to admit it can be fun. Sometimes if there are a few extra bucks in my wagering account, I find myself making a […]

Racing has always been a world within the world. It has brought many smiles and tears to my eyes, and red-faced anger at times. But, in the sporting world I have never seen the generosity and compassion that lives and breathes on the backside of the track. There is stiff competition on the oval, but […]

My pal Danny asked me when I was going to get back in the game of racing. I told him owning one horse was like adding on a house payment or a luxury car each month. He had no real clue as to the hidden costs. But after listening to me cry, he is now better informed. […]

The Happy Horseplayer

When you think of what makes us happy about being a fan of the sport can you think of any special notes? For me, it has always been simple. I love to look over the Twin Spires and see the roses in bloom on that first Saturday in May, start reading three weeks out about […]

The Travers is horse racing history personified – dating back to when Saratoga Race Course was in its second year and Honest Abe Lincoln was president of the divided United States. The so-called “Mid-Summer Derby” is the oldest stakes race for 3-year-olds in our great land. The racetrack is located in Saratoga Springs, about 160 […]
