Road to the Derby – 3/14/17

Another weekend has passed and the road to the Derby is murky and cluttered. That doesn’t mean it won’t come clean in the wash and we’ll see as far as an Irish Spring commercial. Only time will tell. – You need to keep to task and watch the replays, comb over the charts, and read […]

Road to the Derby – 3/4/17

As the preps come and go, Derby dreams fade in and out like an old TV. You remember ? The TV your grandpa used to watch baseball games. Sometimes it came in as clear as day, and other times it took a while before you see what’s happening. That’s the thought rolling through my head […]

Free Selections – Pegasus World Cup – Gulfstream Park

          The big day has finally arrived and the racing world will focus on Miami this Saturday. Gulfstream Park was the place where I first began watching the road to the Derby many moons ago. The age of simulcast magically brought the live races to my local track and shortly after […]

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 Talk360.com. I must admit I was taken aback. I was a little surprised to hear the words “I’m gonna’ […]

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 […]

Free Selections / Saturday / 3-19-16

I love to have an appetizer before dinner. A little something to get your hunger focused on big things to come. When I begin my handicapping process, I first take a look at the races and get a picture of who looks solid. After all the smoke has settled and I have determined my bankroll, […]

As the biggest snow storm in nearly 100 years gets ready to unleash nature’s fury, we find ourselves getting ready to hunker down and spend some time inside. So what’s a horse player to do ? – The East coast is going to get a mountain of fluffy white stuff, and racing will take a little […]

Weekend Preview

Crank up your old “Rocky” cassette and begin shadow boxing. The sweat starts running down your back, and your hard work is beginning to pay off. That’s exactly the mindset needed for this weekend. Think of this one as one of the last opportunities for the runners to stamp their card for Louisville, and that’s easy, because […]

It’s All In The Numbers

Most of us hated math class. Notice I said, MOST. There are handicappers who dive into the numbers with a pencil and scratch pad, while others develop and test algorithms to see if a runner is worth the risk. There are handicappers that have been working on their own pace figures for years, and most are […]
