Fall Racing Highlights

FALL RACING HIGHLIGHTS CENTER AROUND AQUEDUCT, DEL MAR, AND CHURCHILL

The second half of November is truly one of the great times of year for horseplayers and lovers of Thoroughbred handicapping. Important and high-quality racing centers around three tracks - Del Mar, Churchill Downs and Aqueduct - which makes it easy for horseplayers to effectively watch and wager on every good race simply by narrowing their focus to three signals.  All three of these main track meets are scheduled to reach their climaxes over the second half of November as they all roll out their remaining stakes and fill-up their condition…

WIDE OPEN BREEDERS CUP MILE DRAWS 23 PRE-ENTRANTS WITH HEAVY EUROPEAN INFLUENCE

WIDE OPEN BREEDERS CUP MILE DRAWS 23 PRE-ENTRANTS WITH HEAVY EUROPEAN INFLUENCE

One only look at the average prices for all Breeders’ Cup races to know that the term “wide open” can be applied on a majority of the races. Yet in 2016 at Santa Anita the BC Mile might be the poster-board for that definition.

By now we know that Turf and European shippers creates its own spotlight but this year’s Mile has more European influence than we’ve seen in this race in quite some time.

Perennial Breeders Cup trainer Aiden Obrien has a pair in Alice Springs and…

Top 3 Kentucky Derby Finshers Face 9 Rivals In Pennsylvania Derby

TOP 3 KENTUCKY DERBY FINISHERS FACE NINE CHALLENGERS IN GRADE II PENNSYLVANIA DERBYBest 3-Year Old Betting Race In Months

Kudos to PARX racing officials for timing the $1.25 Million Grade II Pennsylvania Derby at a time separated from the Haskell and Travers and far enough on the calendar ahead of the Breeders’ Cup that they have drawn the kind of field a horse bettor can salivate over.

For headline purposes the fact that the race drew the top 3 finishers from this year’s Kentucky Derby, winner NYQUIST, runner up EXAGGERATOR and third place finisher GUN RUNNER is a promotional dream scenario.

Despite losing…

Belmont Early Meet capsule Quick Thought For The day

BELMONT EARLY MEET CAPSULEQUICK THOUGHT FOR THE DAYEven Small Sample Justifies Questioning Major Turf Assumptions

There is not a horse player alive who doesn’t now and then fall prey to oft-repeated “standards” when it comes to handicapping any given race meet or an individual race based on the conditions of tat race (class, surface, distance, etc.)

If only those perceived standards were universal enough to make the game easier. If anything, they often get in the way of good individualized handicapping because the oft-repetition is so prevalent that bettors seek what they perceive as a safety net.

Those last two paragraphs might appear…

Belmont’s Handicapping Quirks Lead to Profitable Betting Angles This Fall

There are many categories of handicapping angles in play at this time of year in New York as summer turns to fall. Horses and horsemen who spent summer far and wide, not only at Saratoga but also at Monmouth and other tracks in the mid-Atlantic region, all return to Belmont for the Fall Championship Meet, which continues the East's highest-quality racing and wagering throughout this season until the end of October.

While it is impossible to mention every Belmont fall handicapping angle in one article, we can focus on some of the best, most effective, and perhaps the most overlooked angles…

Juvenile Maiden Races Saratoga Experience Vs Belmont First Time Starters

JUVENILE MAIDEN RACES…SARATOGA EXPERIENCE VS BELMONT FIRST TIME STARTERS

It can be argued that there is no more attention placed on Juvenile Maiden races than there is during the Saratoga Meet.

This is understandable for a number of reason, not least of which are the late summer being the time where the precocious ones are ready to debut, here the top barns are looking to get a head start in preparation for high level stakes racing and many owners want to run at the Spa and point their youngsters to these races.

What comes with these races is also a number of misconceptions.…

Saratoga Last Out Runners Control Early Belmont Races

SARATOGA LAST OUT RUNNERS CONTROL OPENING DAYS AT BELMONT

On Friday (9/9) the 2016 Belmont Fall Championship Meet Opens.There are a number of changes, subtle and otherwise that a handicapper must consider. Chief among them is the return to one mile and mile and a sixteenth races on the dirt as well as the mile and an eight race that goes around one turn on the main track. This is a significant switch from the Spa where they run up to 7 furlongs at one turn and 9 furlongs around two turns.

Although, like Saratoga, there are both an outer and inner…

I’m John Conte and I am taking a few minutes to let you know that anyone can brag about winners. Anyone can cherry pick from 5 or 6 races and claim their 2 winners without mentioning anything else.

What I want to do in this short piece is show you the workings of an everyday handicapper like myself. A handicapper who not only releases plays to the public but wagers on those same plays. I will do this right now by travelling back to the corresponding Belmont…
