MAKE A SEEMLESS MOVE FROM SARATOGA TO BELMONT’S FALL MEET

The Saratoga racing season continues through its customary closing day on Labor Day, when New York racing once again moves downstate for the start of the Belmont Park Fall Championship Meet, which begins on Friday, Sept. 9 and continues through to October 30.  Following Saratoga, there are few race meets as important as the Belmont Fall Championship Meet, which contains all of New York's key prep races for the Breeders' Cup. Plus, don't forget, that besides just stakes races, Belmont Park also offers top-notch racing day-in-and-day-out all throughout the late summer/early fall season.

Every serious horseplayer plays Belmont during the fall…

TRAVERS, FOREGO AND KING'S BISHOP ARE STACKED, AND THAT MEANS STACKS OF BOXCAR PAYOFF POTENTIALCashing In On Travers Day Stakes Races

If you are a living breathing thoroughbred horse bettor then you are fully aware that not only does this Saturday's Grade I Travers Stakes feature the largest sized field (14 entered runners) in over 40 years but there is absolutely no link to foregone conclusion favorite.

LARGEST TRAVERS FIELD IN OVER 40 YEARS IS HANDICAPPER'S AND BETTOR'S DREAM THIS SATURDAY

If I were to hold a handicapper's seminar and needed a race from which to exhibit every running style, every trainer angles, every possible setup, I could not ask for a better work sheet than Saturday's Grade I Summer Derby. A.K.A. the Travers Stakes.

There is only one true purpose to handicapping any race and that is to find the best horses in the best combinations in order to make money!

In order to find the right horses in the right combination and make that money I have to…

Place Betting

As you know, I occasionally post an answer to a question received from readers. I do this when I believe the question is general enough that it serves as a "lesson" most horse bettors should consider. I recently received one regarding PALCE BETTING.

Jim,I am not a favorite player, but over the years I have been beaten enough by the odds-on favorite that when I like a price-horse but fear the favorite I find myself betting place on my horse because it gives me a sense of security. However, if the favorite does win it often depresses the place price. Is…

Last weekend one of my most anticipated plays of the season was canceled when a devastating storm arrived at the SPA after the completion of five races. However, it was announced on Monday that the Grade I Fourstardave would be run this Saturday and the best news of all came a few days later when ALL 9 TURF RUNNERS scheduled to run last week were re-entered.

The Toteboard Does Not Tip Live Juveniles
DON'T BELIEVE THE CARELESS TALKING HEADS...THE TOTEBOARD DOES NOT TIP LIVE JUVENILES, And Other Baby Bathwaters That Should Be Thrown Out

It is very likely that when it comes to wagering on Juvenile Maiden Races at Saratoga there is one adage that is repeated ad-nausea and statistically speaking could not be more in error.

This is an adage and conversation the public which pounds the macadam and the "sharps" that sit in the grandstand and clubhouse repeat endlessly.

"There is no way to bet juvenile maidens. The information does not exist. If you must wager on them, follow the tote board!"

There might be…
