October 13, 2021 (19:45) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
By Ira Kaufman The NFL’s home-field advantage has been shrinking for a while and Week 6 offers a graphic example. Of the 13 games on the schedule being played in U.S. stadiums, eight road teams are favored, many by extravagant margins. The Bucs kick off the trend Thursday evening in Philly, where the defending NFL champs are 7-point favorites " even though Tom Brady is nursing an injured right thumb. This is an intriguing matchup. Tampa Bay is a road team on a short week and the Eagles may have salvaged their season with a comeback victory in Charlotte.

Betting on Frontrunners: Know Before You Go
October 13, 2021 (16:30) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
By Ray Wallin Ask almost any handicapper about what pace style they think has an edge at the track and you will get the same answer: Early speed As handicappers we frame our reference of track bias on whether it is favoring early speed horses, not closers or off the pace runners. There are countless books and articles written on the subject but very few on stalkers and closers. Why? Early speed either wins or dictates the outcome of a race. Deciphering the pace of the race is a little bit of art and science. You can look at the The post Betting on Frontrunners: Know Before You Go appeared first on Daily Racing News | Horse Racing News.

Its mission is to bridge the gap from forgotten horses to forever safe horses. Heres her latest story. By Margaret Ransom A year ago, the well-respected thoroughbred trainer Beau Greely passed away.

October 09, 2021 (23:15) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
By Ed McNamara Rattle N Roll struggled in his first two starts, getting off slowly when third in his debut and bolting on the second turn before being pulled up in his second race. He put it all together in his next start, surging late to break his maiden by three lengths last month at Churchill Downs. The best was yet to come Saturday. The previously erratic colt dominated the Grade 1 Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland Racecourse, sweeping four wide into the stretch and bursting clear for a five-length win over another closer, Todd Pletcher’s Double Thunder.

By Richard Rosenblatt For those wondering, and even for those fed up with his medication violation explanations, Hall of Famer Bob Baffert is still training, still winning, and still saddling many of the stars in the sport.

A Horse Named Little Enis Almost Lived Up To His Namesake
October 07, 2021 (16:15) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
By Maryjean Wall Somewhere in Rockabilly Heaven, the All-American Left-Handed Upside-Down Guitar Player, Little Enis (rhymes with p—-) must be stomping all over his electric GUItar, mad as hell for dying too soon and missing out on the Breeders Cup. We are referring here to the person, not his namesake horse. But come to think of it, if Little Enis the horse had only run fast enough to get out of River Downs, he might have run in one of the Cup races. Dreams are made of this stuff.

Eddie Macs Book (Part I): Final Blitz to Breeders Cup Begins at Keeneland
October 06, 2021 (21:45) [ Indexed from Daily Racing News ]
By Ed McNamara I always look forward to the Keeneland fall meeting, which begins Friday and runs through Oct. 30. Like its April counterpart, it lives up to the track’s slogan, Racing As It Was Meant To Be. The spring meet reminds you the Triple Crown and summer are just down the road. What the autumn meet offers is different and, to me, even more enjoyable. I’ve always thought the best time to handicap was from Labor Day through the Breeders’ Cup.
