Free Selections / Churchill Downs / Saturday 6-15-2013

Louisville will be lighting up the sky with a “Downs After Dark” race card presented by Stella Artois and Finlandia Vodka. If you have never made your way down to the Twin Spires for an incredible night of racing action, you have to put it on your places to visit. You are in for a one-of-a-kind […]

Free Selections / Turfway Park / 3-23-30

The road to the Derby can be filled with hope, promise, and disappointment. This week begins the short run into the starting gates in Louisville. I like to call these the “big three” as they have so much riding on them. Saturday afternoon brings about round one, and you can bet they are playing for […]

This time of year has everyone thinking about roses. Not the ones you receive from your secret love. I am talking about the glorious red roses that decorate the winner’s circle at Churchill Downs. I have been reading every report, blog, and tweet about the road to the Triple Crown. This is when you can’t […]

On the road to the Derby, many factors come into play. Did a horse get something out of the race ? – Did they encounter any trouble and learn ?? – Could a race be a “mirage” of sorts by fooling our eyes with an effort that wasn’t as good as posted ?? – Any […]

With no real football until next week, there should be no excuse to buckle down and really get capping. Most of the country has snow, ice, and rain. But if the weatherman is correct, it should be a solid day in Hallandale, Florida as we kickoff the road to the Derby. So, grab your E-Z Win […]

Shackleford’s Final Race: Clark or Cigar Mile

Trainer Dale Romans is weighing which Grade 1 on Thanksgiving weekend will be Shackleford’s final outing before the 4-year-old son of Forestry is retired to stud at Darby Dan Farm.   Shackleford is returning to Churchill Downs where the Clark Handicap will be staged for the 138th time on Nov. 23.   “We might run him in the Clark,” Romans […]

2012 Breeders’ Cup Day One / Friday’s Picks / Free Selections

Is it really 2012?? I can remember sitting in my dad’s living room watching the first Breeders’ Cup in 1984. There was no simulcast wagering in our area, and the ADW explosion had yet to detonate. We were wagering with our local bookmaker, and watching history unfold before our very eyes. This day is all […]

I thought the card was going to be good this weekend at Woodbine but this has exceeded all of my wagering expectations. I won’t be jumping in the “Bet Mobile” and heading to the track. I am going to make all of my wagers in the morning and see the Bengals brawl with the Cleveland […]

I absolutely love betting races on the green. The pools are better, and you will find value all the way around. Just pay attention to the “change of weather” tab on the E-Z Win Forms and you can be ready to shift from firm and fast to muddy and yielding in a click. Here are […]
