Its hard to put into words the first time the objection sign made the numbers go dark, and your 10-1 shot was placed 3rd. On the other hand, for every thousand bad losers you tossed to the floor. I bet you can recount with vivid accuracy when you signed your first I.R.S. ticket, or the […]

After the red-hot Thoroughbred action that came our way as the Breeders’ Cup. The rest of racing  looks pretty much dismal. I used to be a part of this crowd. And once the Classic was declared official, I decided it was time to go to sleep until the Fair Grounds opened, or when the call-to-the-post sounded […]

The days on the porch sipping ice tea are fading slowly into the setting summer sun. But not to fear. This weekend is one we have waited for, as the 144th Running of the “Mid-Summer Derby” is in full effect. Saratoga oozes history and tradition, and this Saturday will not disappoint. There is a stakes filled […]

Free Selections / Saturday / 4-20-2013

The biggies are in the books, and a few are chasing minor points this weekend.  Just when you think there could be no real runners to come out of this race. Turn back the clocks to the 1999, as Charismatic almost won the Triple Crown. So, don’t go fishing just yet. There is plenty of money to be […]

Don’t worry, Winning Ponies will keep you up-to-speed with our Internet Radio Show, and the E-Z Win Forms will […]

Rites of Spring / Keeneland

The month of April brings the beauty of a new season. As the grass turns greenish-blue, and the buds on the trees explode into action. One could only assume that heaven has fallen to earth. That is the circle of life in the bluegrass state. Only one thing could make this season perfect, and that […]

Free Selections / Turfway Park / 3-23-30

The road to the Derby can be filled with hope, promise, and disappointment. This week begins the short run into the starting gates in Louisville. I like to call these the “big three” as they have so much riding on them. Saturday afternoon brings about round one, and you can bet they are playing for […]

On the road to the Derby, many factors come into play. Did a horse get something out of the race ? – Did they encounter any trouble and learn ?? – Could a race be a “mirage” of sorts by fooling our eyes with an effort that wasn’t as good as posted ?? – Any […]
