The Happy Horseplayer / August 1, 2017

Another month in the books and “The Happy Horseplayer” enjoyed every minute. – The eternal optimist looks forward to more fun in the sun as racing is just starting to heat up. The past month left me with fond memories, nice scores, and a few bad beats. But all in all, I wouldn’t trade it […]

Problem Ponies – Horses to Watch – 7/19/16

Summer is officially here according to my horseplayer’s watch. – Del Mar rolled out the red carpet and Saratoga is set to go post ward. You can find your favorite track, ADW, or betting parlor to hunker down and handicap some of the best horses in the land. You better hurry, summer won’t last forever […]

Problem Ponies – Horses to Watch – 6/28/16

Nothing like a little weekly report to get you thinking about the races. – Winning Ponies does all of the leg work so you can spend more time using the data to maximize your bankroll. – Here’s a little added bonus if horses who had a tough trip, bad break, or deserve a good piece […]

Problem Ponies – Horses to Watch – 6/20/16

Many moons ago I used to work with a gent who loved to bet the ponies. I was just a kid who ran the parking lot and he was in-charge of valet. When he would go broke which was more often than not, he would sit and smoke cigarettes and keep notes on horses. – […]

“Problem Ponies” – Horses to Watch – 6/7/16

As the Belmont stakes approach, there is something missing. Oh, yeah. There’s no Triple Crown hopeful. – Now we can get down to the business of handicapping instead of being torn rooting for history to be made. – The card will be incredible from Friday – Saturday, and this may be the best wagering opportunity […]

What’s On My Mind ?

I’m sick and tired of reading ‘telephone tough-guys” who smack the sport. I wish I could put a bow on top and make it look pretty, but that’s just not the case. There have been a few things on my mind, and I think some folks may agree. If not, I’m sure they’ll disagree and bring […]

Better Betting ?

Not trying to steal a line from The Who, but the latest talk on the wagering front is about “Exchange Wagering.” – If it kind of has the Wall St. feel, its not far away. – If you’ve been a player who sits on the sidelines and complains about not offering the bettor new avenues. Here […]

Take It Off The Streets

I love to make a bet on football. There is something about having a wager on the big game that brings the action to life. Gamblers are some of the most competitive people in the world, and most don’t even know it. According to an article it is estimated to be about $400 Billion wagered […]

The Eyes of Chicago Are Upon You

  I love Arlington Park. You have to get there at least an hour and half to walk around and examine the manicured grounds, and see the beautiful artwork and statues. Keep this one on your bucket list before CDI (Churchill) has this one-of a-kind venue holding $4,000 conditioned races. But I digress. – I’ve […]

Belterra Park / Place Parlay Wagers

It has been 50 days into the Belterra Park meet, and there is definitely some angles to take advantage of before heading to the windows. What was once the beautiful River Downs has now shape-shifted and rebuilt in the image of a glitzy casino and new race track. The track is smaller than most, but […]
