I will say this that no public handicapper has a higher ROI tweeting horses and the results are there for eternity now.

I would venture Maggie's ROI is in the plus the main advantage being she doesn't tweet every race.

In today's world that's become a valuable asset especially because it can be sent to your phone really not impeding your days activities even in the business world.

The public handicapper at the track can alter his picks depending on looks and odds. There are so many time Serling says " I like so and so but not at those odds". He will also say sometimes he is treading lightly or not playing certain races.

I love the '' little guy '' , but Maggie ?? i don't see it... There was a Goldberg horse the other day that never ran on dirt and Maggie said the horse had a big turf hoof and probably wouldn't handle dirt.. I was going to play that horse anyway but after i heard that i doubled up and cashed a nice ticket.. Sort of like when Rich Perloff hates a horse i like , i just double or triple up... I could bring a racing form down to the paddock and give you the same info she does.. if the horse has a sprint pedigree i could say he is built like a sprinter and if the horse has a route ped i could say he or she is built like a router.. and if dutrow or levine claim a horse 1st time i could say he or she is on there toes..... Andy is the only one worth listening to on the show

Something tells me a guy named "Big Frank" isn't as easy on the eyes though...

Re: Maggie Wolfendale

Hate to join in here, but i can count the number of helpful female racing analysts on one hand...Cantey, Bredar, Dawn Lupul at Woodbine (awesome!) and sometimes Jessica Pacheco & Joanne Jones.

You can have the rest, or just stare at them, as some surely do.

Conley, Cadman, Yu, Millie Ball, Katie Mikolay...they do nothing for me.

Maggie is actually one of the better paddock handicappers that I've seen on air.

I agree.


I listen to her "every day". Her observations are usually accurate...
Who is the handicapper/analyst who is correct 100% of the time?

In person, Maggie is even prettier than her picture... and fan-friendly...

One of the funnier posts in a long time. Keep it up MM, I need a chuckle from time to time.

I like the way Andy picks apart a race. If there is a way to bet against a vulnerable favorite he will say it. He may not be as good looking as Maggie but his handicapping makes up for it.

What I do like about Maggie (besides her looks) is she is one of the few that I see that addresses physicality of the horses. I don't get the impression she is reading someone elses words.

Maggie's job is to comment on the physical appearance of the horses in the paddock. You take it or leave it if you wish. I think does she at as good of job of doing that as Serling does of handicapping. I view her opinions are a tool to be used since I am not at the track to judge the horses myself. Serling, Maggie etc are as good of a team of pre race commentators is there is in racing today.

Having Andy and Maggie as part of the NYRA broadcast is definitely a plus. Try listening to TVG and you will realize how good the NYRA show is.
Both Andy and Maggie do their homework. I have seen Maggie in the paddock taking notes. What they do is break down a race and give you information you might not have. This is more important in my opinion than their picks.
