Summer Handicapping Progress Report

I had the best handicapping question from a long time player the other day. He bought me a draft beer and had a seat. – Before we got down to business we talked family, life, work, and what-not. Just a good beer with an old face from the past. – Well, it finally came down […]

Change is Coming – Fall 2014

Keeneland has come a long way from eight races, one daily double, and no announcer. Now that was ancient ages ago, but the track that is branded  “Racing as it was meant to be” has taken a big step. Long ago, change was a nasty word for the beautiful Lexington track. They have proven they […]

Run, Pass, or Drop Back and Punt?

I have two wagering loves in my life. Thoroughbred racing and football. It doesn’t matter what the level of competition, as I love to watch them. I have examined wagering on both, and I have come up with a possible game plan. Once again, it could be college ball or the Breeders’ Cup. They both […]

Free Selections / Opening Day Saratoga / 7-19-2013

Since 1863, the sleepy town of Saratoga Springs comes to life. That is if you are a racing fan and love the sport of kings.

The Woodlawn Vase, the painting of the weather vane, and the playing of “Maryland, My Maryland.” The race is a springboard for another shot at the Triple Crown, or the detour sign that has players looking forward to summer racing.   The race […]

7 Derby-Capping Rules

Most of my working life has been around the track. There is not one complaint in that area, but this is one of the few times of year that you have to blot out the words of wisdom that are coming from everywhere. With that in mind, here is a short compilation of Derby “to-do’s” […]

I have never been much of a New Year’s kinda’ guy. I usually stay home and cook, and watch a bevy of bowl games. But as the final hours of 2012 make their way into the books, I get a little teary eyed of days gone by and good things to come. But all-in-all, it […]

What To Bet, And When To Do It

I was asked by one of our WinningPonies members, what type of races I like to play and which ones do I leave alone. That may be the million dollar question for a gambler, but there is an answer for me. Everyone has their own method to selecting races, and others fire at will. But, […]
