Making More out of Less

Sure, we would all love to make more money betting less money and nobody I know would argue against that. Well maybe you can argue if you bet more when you win, you’d win more, but betting less to win more is a sound principal in this game. How about when you have less information? How does one approach a race where the information is limited? Races like maiden races, specifically maiden special weight races where you are likely to have a few good horses, many well-meant, and some making their first starts. These [...]

Key Races & Bets for Saturday January 22, 2022

Race 6 at Aqueduct - Post Time 2:48 PM Eastern Win contenders are Moonachie, South Sea and Mi Tres Por Ciento. Horses to be considered for second on exacta tickets are Summer Bourbon, Gran Casique and Speeding Kid. Moonachie runs first off the claim by Vasquez, hitting at a VERY high rate so far at the meeting with seven wins from 19 starts. The key here is in spite of being off for almost five months off the $12,500 claim, Moonachie is raised to the $16K level. That’s because his last race at Aqueduct, [...]

Sunshine Classics

On Saturday at Gulfstream Park, they’ll run both the Sunshine Classic at a mile and an eighth and the Sunshine Sprint at six furlongs. Both stakes are on the main track, and both are for Florida Breds. Neither race drew a particularly large field, the Classic with six and the Sprint with eight, but maybe with a little luck we can make some noise or do some damage. In the Classic I lean to the horse on the rail, Sir Ollie. Sir Ollie has only had four lifetime starts so he is obviously not [...]

The Tropical Turf Single

On Saturday Gulfstream Park will run the Grade 3 Tropical Turf which may serve as somewhat of a preview of the Pegasus World Cup Turf to be run January 29th. Todd Pletcher and Chad Brown both have runners that can wind up in the Pegasus at the end of the month. Pletcher’s Largent has not run since the Pegasus Turf last year where he was beaten a neck by his stablemate Colonel Liam. Largent loves the course at Gulfstream with a 4 for 6 record with two seconds. He has speed but doesn’t need [...]
