Emerald Downs 2017 :)

http://emeralddowns.com/

The 2017 racing season is upon us!!!! Saturday night is opening night with 1st post at 8 PM eastern, 5 PM Pacific.

To me, the best kept secret, in USA racing, is EMERALD DOWNS!

REDUCED TAKEOUT of 15% on Pick 5's and the Pick 7 (not a jackpot )

Near average field size of 8 per race in the opening night card.

An awesome, caring CEO, fans in the stands, MANY of them, a hard riding colony (very few-let's rate till they can't breathe rides), very few "Supertrainers", formful racing, fantastic post times, an energetic TV crew/ANNOUNCER and subtle track biases.

The countdown is now at 73 hours and 35 minutes

I could be wrong but Emerald seems to have the BEST female jockey colony in the USA year in, year out.

Don't think I've ever bet Emerald Downs before. I will follow and see if I can cash a few. Good luck to you.

I think we talked about him a bit before. Early in his career, he was here in Vancouver, at Hastings.

Very light hands, the reins just sit there, he always looked very comfortable. Seemed to have a good clock in his head - could rate on the lead horses well, but would occasionally take an off the pace horse up to the lead if he sensed the pace was slow (especially in route races)

Was not afraid to whip left handed around the far turn, which is a key to success here. (Most jocks hit right handed around the far turn here because the turn is irregularly shaped, and they think there horse will get out - unfortunately, hitting right handed almost causes the horses to "stutter step" and they lose momentum)

IMHO - Would rank as one of the top 2 or 3 young jockeys to start (or nearly start) their career at Hastings over the past couple of decades.


Go get em EMD....
