Diversify Your Way to More Profits
November 12, 2018 (12:30) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
Recently I read an article about a guy nicknamed Duffel Bag Boy who was cleaning up in Vegas on fading my beloved Rutgers Scarlet Knights football team. I readily admit that the Scarlet Knights are currently the doormat of the Big Ten and that even our local Pop Warner team could probably beat them. Covering against Indiana and then against Northwestern on Homecoming weekend, put them at 2-5 against the spread through October 20th. It wasnt that long ago that Rutgers was crushing the spread. Well, maybe it was a while ago " or I am showing my age and The post Diversify Your Way to More Profits appeared first on Daily Racing News | Horse Racing News. More...

November 12, 2018 (12:30) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
How many times have you been on the fence about a horse? You sort of like that four-horse in the fifth race, but not enough to go too heavy on the race. Then you look up at the monitor and Track Handicapper Johnny makes him his top selection and you hear Rail Guy shouting from somewhere, I love dat four horse. Did ya hear me, bro? Hey, ya got wax in your ears or somethin? You probably wish you did have wax in your ears, and a clothespin for your nose when Rail Guy gets too close.

November 12, 2018 (12:30) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
In a year with a rare Triple Crown winner, Hronis Racings Accelerate made his own case for Horse of the Year with a one-length victory in the 35th running of the $5,358,000 million Breeders Cup Classic (GI) at Churchill Downs. In doing so, the handsome son of Lookin at Lucky gave trainer John Sadler his very first win on Racings Championship Day from 44 previous starters and also an initial win for his owners, Kosta and Pete Hronis. As the lukewarm favorite at more than 5-2 under jockey Joel Rosario, Accelerate paid $7.40, $6 and $4.40.

Game Winner Seals Championship With Breeders Cup Juvenile Score
November 12, 2018 (12:30) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
When Triple Crown winner Justify retired to stallion duty this past summer, his absence left a significant void in the daily operations of Hall of Fame trainer Bob Bafferts barn. The empty stall on the corner of barn five at Santa Anita, which also housed American Pharoah three years earlier, a constant reminder of a journey to the summit in thoroughbred racing unfortunately cut short by injury or the lure of a lucrative stud deal. So, when Baffert instructed his staff to put a plain bay 2-year-old son of Candy Ride in that stall, just about everybody should have noticed.

Things Youve Got to See at the Breeders Cup!

The Breeders’ Cup is upon us and the US Racing team has been busy taking in all the sights at Churchill Downs " from schooling drills, to morning gallops and workouts, to horses lounging comfortably in their stalls. And while the weather may not have been as sunny and warm as it was for last years World Championships in California, nothing can dampen the spirits of a horseracing fan at this time of year save, perhaps, giving a winning pick-6 ticket to George Baileys Uncle Billy to cash (fans of the move Its A Wonderful Life will readily understand).

Owner McClanahan Goes From Zero to Breeders Cup
November 12, 2018 (12:30) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
When Jerry McClanahan thinks back on his first experience as a thoroughbred owner more than 20 years ago, he sometimes wonders how hes still in the game. An avid handicapper who dipped his toe into a claiming partnership on a low-level Los Alamitos mixed-breed specialist, his first horse almost didnt even make it to the racetrack. Sometimes I cant believe it, McClanahan, who is the owner of the multi-state HVAC test and balance certification company Hartmanaire, said. The very first horse I ever owned was entered in a claiming race at Los Alamitos and we had to The post Owner McClanahan Goes From Zero to Breeders Cup appeared first on Daily Racing News | Horse Racing News.

Breeders Cup Dirt Mile Looks Ripe for Upset
October 29, 2018 (04:00) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
The Breeders Cup Dirt Mile is always an interesting handicapping puzzle for horseplayers, despite the fact that the middle-distance Breeders Cup races rarely are the headliners and often are the most likely races to be overlooked on a packed weekend of championship racing at the Breeders Cup. While certainly not the weekends feature race, the Dirt Mile may offer one of Breeders Cup weekends best chances to make money by simply zeroing in on just two serious contenders. The Dirt Mile has always been something of a consolation prize for horses that are not good enough to point for the The post Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile Looks Ripe for Upset appeared first on Daily Racing News | Horse Racing News.

What to Look for in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint
October 29, 2018 (04:00) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
This race has never been run before, so there are no past trends to analyze. However, we might be able to glean some clues on what to look for by studying the Turf Sprint, which will be run for the 11th time on Saturday, Nov. 3. And the first thing I notice when looking at past editions of the Turf Sprint is that a recent race doesnt seem to matter much " at least not to Mizdirection, the talented filly who won back-to-back renewals of the race in 2012 and 2013 off of 160- and 147-day layoffs, respectively.

Does Weight Really Matter in Horse Racing?
October 29, 2018 (04:00) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
Of all the handicapping factors that confuse me, none are quite as befuddling as weight. Numerous studies have shown that a horses impost has next to nothing to do with its performance in todays race, yet some of the greatest horsemen, handicappers and handicapping services consider it to be of paramount importance. Both the The Sheets and Thoro-Graph factor weight into their speed ratings and professional gambler Bill Benter includes a horses impost in his mathematical algorithms as well.

The Eyes Have It!

William Shakespeare once said, The eyes are the window to your soul. Cicero was quoted as saying, The face is a picture of the mind as the eyes are its interpreter. Horses also convey their thoughts and feelings through their eyes. The eyes can give one insight into their inner world. Like any physical characteristic, you need to see what other positive or negative physical characteristics the horse is displaying. This could be how the horse is (or isnt) sweating, what their head, ears, or tail is doing and how they are walking.

Making Sense of the Breeders Cup Mile

As one of the original seven Breeders Cup events, and with a $2 million purse, the Mile is guaranteed to draw an international field of the worlds top turf milers. Through its 34-year history, the Mile has been somewhat of an enigma for horseplayers who seem overanxious to designate it as being overwhelmingly dominated by European invaders " this despite evidence to the contrary, which suggests Americans do equally well. In 34 editions of the Breeders Cup Mile to date, not counting horses that began their careers in Europe and then came to the U.S., foreign invaders have won 13 The post Making Sense of the Breeders Cup Mile appeared first on Daily Racing News | Horse Racing News.
