      Getting out of town is a treat. For horse players, when they arrive at their destination it is reminiscent of searching under the Christmas tree for the gift with your name attached. I know this to be true when I pulled into the gates of Fair Grounds race track on Saturday. – If you’ve […]

What Do You See ?

                                                  I’ve been on the “D.L.” for a few days, and I’m back in full form. Or, at least back in training. But I digress. – I missed some of the live action this […]

Long Distance Cheering

I have a few buddies that have qualified for the 17th Annual National Handicapping Championship. – It takes place January 28th – 30th, and there is $2.45 million dollars on the line.

Why I Can’t Live In New Orleans

The weather was perfect, but I hear it gets pretty close during the summer months. You look, and you look, and there just are no good restaurants around. If you love to drink, party, gamble, or just read a good book and turn in early. You can bet you’ll probably find something to get into. […]

For a few weeks now, I’ve been working on a little gift for the small time player. We find ourselves playing with a smaller pocket of cash after the holiday madness has subsided. With minimal cash to play, and the assistance of the Winning Ponies E-Z Win Forms, I think we have a late stocking stuffer for […]

The Action Never Stops

The nation is in a cold snap, and its a doozey. At the time of this blog, it is one month and four days from the start of winter. In my neck of the woods, we’re getting ready to break a low-temperature mark since 1880.  Even as the weatherman spouts bad news, this time of year has a […]

We’re all glued to the screen when “Horseplayers” comes on the Esquire Network. It’s a solid show that gives you a glimpse behind the world of contest play, and follows some of the best handicappers in the world. Now, if you noticed I said SOME of the best players. Not to take a cheap shot […]
