Stellar Wind (#2, 5/2) is tough as they come and should be right there on the wire in this year’s Distaff after a disastrous start last year. Prior to last year’s Breeders’ Cup, she beat Beholder twice and contrary to the belief of many, I think she is just as good this year as last. She […]

Europe has dominated the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf in recent years and 2017 should be no exception. The improving Masar (#6, 9/2) looks to be the best of a large contingent of Euros in this year’s race. He is proven to be effective going one mile and appears to favor firm turf, which he will […]

This year’s Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile has more questions than answers. Is Mor Spirit (#6, 3-1) in the same form he was in when winning the Met Mile following a layoff and sketchy work pattern? Are Sharp Azteca (#3, 9/2), Practical Joke (#10, 6-1) and Awesome Slew (#5, 12-1) capable of winning a major race around two […]

The biggest question in this year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf is which Aidan O’Brien filly will win? September (#10, 6-1) is the less heralded of O’Brien’s two stars, but she may prove to be just as efficient in America as Happily (#2, 9/2).  I urge everyone the take a look at September‘s last race. The chart comment of lacked room […]

Below is the Pick 4 ticket for Delaware Park on July 15th, 2017. As always, the ticket is $20 or less, but with Songbird in the sequence and a low payout expected, it makes the most sense to try to hit the Pick 4 cold and bet it multiple times. Race 6: The Carl Hanford Memorial Adirondack […]

Always Dreaming and Classic Empire brought arguably the two best resumes into the Kentucky Derby and the Derby did very little to change that belief. Both horses ran very well with Always Dreaming parlaying a perfect trip to victory and Classic Empire overcoming a brutal trip to run 4th. These are the clear cut best […]

Below is the middle Pick 4 ticket for Gulfstream Park on Florida Derby Day, April 1st, 2017. As always, the ticket is $20 or less.

As always, the ticket is $20 or less. *Update* rain unfortunately washed off the turf races, but analysis for the dirt races in the sequence still applies.

While Lady Eli (#8, 5-2) is everyone’s sentimental pick, Seventh Heaven, (#3, 3-1) appears to be the horse to bet in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf. She loves a firm turf and has thrived on left-handed courses. She defeated the mighty Found with ease two starts back and only a horrendous trip in […]

Noted and Quoted (#10, 9-2) looked like a brand new horse in the morning after traveling from Del Mar to Santa Anita Park prior to Chandelier Stakes. She transferred her strong morning workouts over Santa Anita’s dirt to afternoon success when winning the Chandelier. She has worked very well since, further proving the notion that […]

While Songbird (#1, 6-5) has never run as fast as Stellar Wind or Beholder, it would be foolish to discount the chances of an undefeated filly whose never been asked for her best. She will need her best to beat two outstanding horses and this should be the most exciting race on the Breeders’ Cup […]
