Clearly something was amiss deep in the stretch. Leon had the momentum and sure looked like he was going by. I completely buy into the saddle slipping based on his body placement..it just looks very...

I 100% agree. The racing officials or stewards should also get lifetime bans for such a disgraceful decision. If the jockey ended up with a career ending injury or actually got killed it would have...

I remember this quite well and following the story of the bankruptcy. Bettors who had won money that was taxable were listed as “ creditors” can you believe that ? They had to settle on an amount and...

So what is the difference using the TVG app since that is still available? What does NH Lottery think that all these horse players are just going to run out and buy scratch tickets now ? Even with...

OMG you finally admitted to the fact that scratches and races being taken off the turf costs NYRA a ton on handle. Thanks for that…it took a while but someone got you to say it.

It behoves a track to grab as much attendance and on track wagering as possible. They get the full take out percentage and no sharing. Ironically not many people understand this. When dog racing and...

True that was a bit of a stretch Documented evidence shows 90% of horse bettors are between 50-79. That research was from 4 years ago so lowest age probably has gone up. Most guys 70 plus aren’t...

Not that it matters but that double was paying close to 2.00 but they never round up on the probables. It was like a bridge jumper double and since TLG didn’t post his picks the elder bettors just...

Even if it’s a few thousand what does it matter ? Money is money and some guys only follow the picks on Talking Horses. My question is fair ….why omit selections for those races ?

Talking Horses…no selections first two races

I understand that the first two races today at Aqueduct are turf hurdles but why not handicap those races? These are part of the overall card and people actually do bet on them. Maybe more money...
