At the time of this post, there are some really odd things happening. – I’m not talking about a double dead-heat on the same card or a historical payoff. – I’ve never said this before, but I believe the next year will have a great impact on the sport of kings as we know it. […]

First Time Player / Free Saturday Pick Four Selections

I started the day with optimism and energy. Right now, I feel like I have gone 12 rounds with the champ. I stayed up late and got up early, and the Winning Ponies E-Z Win Forms took it to the house ! – I made a few bets, and our pick four hit but sustained a […]

It was adult beverage time on a Friday. But, more importantly, three men were going to meet just like they do every year, and get ready to bankroll for the Breeders’ Cup. The gents have been handicapping for years. They all are in the banking industry, and make their way in for a beer or […]

I was at the Derby… I was doing a radio show in the area that would have been known as the “0ld press box.” It was nice, and situated right over the finish line, three stories up. It was a great day to work in racing.  But, then I made a mistake…. You know by […]
