I always wondered how he got the job w DRF and NBC? He was the worst handicapper on that horseplayers show?

A youthful shot in the arm

For a game that needs it but will never get it. The kid got his own gig at DRF and is a fraud at best, They took Brad Thomas and Peck off to replace them with the KID..... back to Kenny Peck he should get more press the guy is good very good at recognizing opportunities against the flow.

He was 20 to 40 years younger than the other handicappers on the show. Youth sells in TV.

Have you watched his shows on DRF? He seems fully competent with explaining his racing options, along with Mike Beer and David Argona I think they are all excellent young handicappers. (though Beer is close to my age)

Off topic.

TVG had a promo Tuesday where you bet $10W and if your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd, you get your $10 back, on EVERY race that day.

I just got the e-mail notification this morning.

Better late than never, I guess.

That'd be cool then. I didn't read the fine print.

It's a promo you MUST exercise.

Any public handicapper is going to be wrong the majority of the time...to follow and bet consistently with them is to follow folly down the rabbit hole....one must follow one's own inclinations to gain any insight and satisfaction in the sport...

While true some of TVGs handicappers are dreadful, there are some that add useful information. You just have to learn to pick and choose. The aforementioned Peter does well at Indiana Grand, where he has been in house.

Matt- You have to be careful letting him talk you into his latest 9:1 shot. But if you listen to his comments there is good information. You decide what has value.

Kurt- really does good prep and can give out good stuff.

The ladies do a great job all the way around.

TC is really good in certain spots.

Joaquin is to, especially when it's just him on the desk for smaller tracks especially. I remember on night from Remington his and Chris Ks top choices were the exacta all night. Didn't take much doing to come up with a couple more to round out tri's.

Yes there is way to much buffoonery. But some good stuff here and there.

The only thing I know about lurie is he thinks he has a golden throat and the size of his melon.

Peter Lurie is one of the better handicappers and host that is now on the air.
A pleasure to listen to and very knowledgeable.

I've never had a problem watching him. Or Sarge, Rich, or Caleb either. Really liked it when Frank can sit in.
