  I was attending college and the simulcast boom was just beginning. ADW’s were a bunch of letters, and if you wanted to bet the ponies you went to the track or made a call to your bookie. – Keeneland was in session and I spent more time digging in my pockets for quarters as […]

Derby Do’s and Don’ts / Racing Replays

There can be so much info you need to decipher. That can be tough if you are starting the process and if you start with: The Paulick Report, Equidaily, Horse Racing Nation, The Bloodhorse.com, and Thedowneyprofile.com. – This will get you headed in the right direction. – Then, and only then go back and start watching […]

Primetime Derby

I’ve always enjoyed Derby day. – The entire undercard is chock full of value and the day culminates with the “Greatest Two Minutes in Sports.”  Most would say don’t fix something if it ain’t broke, and far be it from me to do anything as such. But there is the inner-horse player that speaks to […]

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 […]

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’ […]

A Tale of Two Good Guys

Think of this as a report card on what’s happening in the world of racing from a handicapper’s eyes and ears. – I listen to the players. I’ve always enjoyed that part, and the players have always been the best part of racing. – For years that’s been my stance, and it’s not to say there aren’t […]

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 […]

  They’re never around when we need them, and they’re probably still writing tickets for improper fashion statements from last Derby day. – But we need them now, and they better hurry ! – The Breeders’ Cup wind blew through the racing world to rave revues, and Keeneland looked right at home on the big stage […]

Is This For Real ?

We see things that make us draw a deep breath and shake our head. Did we see something special, or did we just hope for something great ? – Handicappers who watch race replays have to be very careful. If you get caught up in “wanting to see something” versus just watching the race. It can cost you […]

A Week in the World of Racing

It doesn’t seem that long of a time when you’ll hear and see things that make you go hmmm. – In any sport there are stories that are front page, and others that are just quick blurbs along the way. But this month has me introspectively looking at life. We are blessed with life, but it is in […]
