Free Breeders’ Cup Selections – Day #1 – 11/4/16

The wait is over and let the weekend begin ! – The weather forecast is clear and sunny with weather in the mid-80’s. – Santa Anita is expecting crowds to reach 100,000 for the two day event, and seating is extremely limited unless you are watching and wagering at “Man-Cave Downs.” – That’s where this […]

There is mucho action happening in New York. Bettors from all walks are prepared for this weekend, but just in case you forgot. There is one of the best cards on the left coast taking place until Breeders’ Cup. With that being said, there is nothing like a little inspiration to get you grabbing up your E-Z Win […]

The second leg of the Triple Crown goes to post at 6:20 p.m. this Saturday. Mother Nature has plans to behave, and the post positions have been drawn. The only left is to grab your E-Z Win Forms and lets capping… Oh, did I mention that each runner has a story? Every year brings new […]

Talking Derby

The races are in the books, and the new point system has been received well by the participants. Now comes the calm before the storm. We need to drop back, and take in all of the information. Don’t worry, Winning Ponies will keep you up-to-speed with our Internet Radio Show, and the E-Z Win Forms will […]

Weekend Recap

This past weekend left me scratching my head. I know that picking winners on paper is easy, but that is why they run the races. After two days of watching nice runners battle for big money, I have many questions that will only be answered in time. So don’t go anywhere, as the action is just […]

Travers Stakes Loses the Likely Favorite

Injury and sickness continue to plague top 3-year-olds this year as Haskell Invitational winner Paynter, who would have been favored in the Travers Stakes, won’t make the $1 million Grade 1. The son of Awesome Again, who spent more than a week in a New Jersey veterinary clinic after spiking a fever several days after […]

If we were having an adult beverage, the bartender would be calling “last call.” The same can be said for Thoroughbred racing, where only a handful of preps still wait until the runners meet at the Derby starting gate. So, time is clicking away and you better catch all of the action you can to be […]

Last weekend was huge racing for the 3-year-old division with the best of the crop showing up for the Jim Dandy and Haskell Invitational.  The interesting part, at least to this observer, was how one of those races contained one of the most exciting performances of the season by a 3-year-old and how the other […]

When the Arkansas Derby runs on Saturday, I think we will have what I like to call the “false positive.” We will see a very nice runner, The Factor, whose style does not fit Churchill Downs on the first Saturday in May. Martin Garcia is teaming up with Bob Baffert, and they do extremely good […]

Last weekend, the Rebel at Oaklawn gave us a peek at a very nice runner. The Factor goes from flag fall to that’s all, and very impressive all the way. But will it be enough?? Martin Garcia in the irons went to the lead and put the field to sleep. Before we go any further, Sway […]
