During a recent conversation with a handicapping pal, I found out he was not very happy with racing. Now, before you jump to any conclusions, he is the kind of player you would love to sit next to while gambling, or locking horns in a handicapping contest. It is rare to hear legit concerns from […]

Magic Behind The Numbers

I have always enjoyed hearing handicapper methods from all walks. Some are based in numerical theory, or as my favorite sitcom The Big Bang Theory would describe as hokum…. No matter what “magic” is prescribed by the handicapper, the game has offered a little bit of everything to make money at the windows. The 1-800 Number: Long before […]

We have grown use to having the ease of wagering from the comfort of our home, or the seat in our office. But if you are looking for that tonic that gets your sporting blood pumping make plans to take in a day of live racing action. It takes us back to where we all began. […]

I have a good friend who loves to play in tournaments. He loves the action, the camaraderie, and of course the money… If you strike gold once, it can make your entire year.

Sunday afternoon found me in an old familiar place. I was at Turfway Park helping out with a handicapping contest. For many moons I ran the show, but on this day I was helping a friend continue the tradition. You could say it felt like old times… My job was getting people registered, answering questions […]

The contest circuit is one where you enter as a stranger and leave as a member of the group. Never before have I enjoyed doing battle in a game that I love dearly. But as of lately I have had some different feelings. Oh I still love them, but there may need to be a […]

I have heard everything good and bad from the world of racing as of late. As a die-hard contest player, I hate seeing contests fall by the wayside. It costs too  much money to put on the show, and then hope players make the trek. Here is a thought, and see if any of it […]

I have spoken about contests until I am blue in the face. But, it is quite a tough call on which one you should play in this weekend. There is the Breeders’ Cup, Twin Spires, NHC, BC Qualify, and host of smaller ones… But the mighty dollar only goes so far. How about a mega-contest? […]

I have had it up to here… Right now, I am signaling a hand gesture to my throat. That will be the exact place that most tracks will get the chop if no help comes soon…. We have tried… The small contest crapola… I have to say that personally I had a small contest that […]
