Agree. It has to be admitted that quality cards, with a marquis race, or a menu of multiple stake races, are very attractive to the general betting public. Even if those particular races aren't...

I think you'll be surprised. Casual gamblers are attracted to the marquis meets. They are the ones that bet the less informed money. DelMar is a literal gold mine if you're betting on horses. When...

It was the first week of racing at Longacres in the late '80s. At the start of the meet they'd have all the banners up, and all the hoopla that goes along with the beginning of a new meet. Anyway, in...

And down we go

Been handicapping SoCal for about 17 years now. I've seen the lowest claiming price for older horses go from $10K to $8K, and then to $6,250. I've seen the lowest claiming price for older horses on...

Did he finish 3rd in the 1st? I can answer my own question easy enough. Don't know why I asked it here. He had a NY-bred coming out of NY MSW on the turf. The horse had lost in a MCl at Tampa I...

Spent 45 minutes 'capping this race. Good one to watch. I'll leave the guessing game to others.

I started playing in 1982. My first winning year was 2008. In 2008, I made about $31,000 in bets, and cashed roughly $34,000 in winners. By this time, I was betting as I do today, W/P. In 2008, there...

What's really needed this year is a solid Derby field, and a big SA Hcp day handle-wise. Hopefully, those will be a couple good days. I'm guessing field average is doing pretty well to this point,...

Exactly. I wasn't sure if it was a big track/small track thing. Your comment implies an east coast/west coast thing.
