Jim Dandy Preview

TOP 3 YEAR OLDS IN ACTION AT SARATOGA AND MONMOUTH...

6 KENTUCKY DERBY RUNNERS, 8 TRIPLE CROWN RUNNERS SQUARE OFF IN JIM DANDY AND HASKELL INVITATIONAL

I have seen 6 horse fields before which are relatively competitive despite the short number. But given that the Grade II Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga on Saturday and The Grade I Haskell Invitational on Sunday drew as many top 3-year olds in training as they did allows me to say that these are two of the most competitive 6 horse fields I have seen in recent memory.

Today we'll take a look at the Jim Dandy…

RACE 1 - Steeplechase Race

RACE 2 - 40K Maiden Claimer - 6 1/2 Furlongs - 3 YO-UpFact that FEAR THAT ($26.60) as part of a Nick Zito (6% last year) entry and defeated by 21 lengths at 25-1 at the same level in his previous race pulled away to a 5 ½ length victory in the lane despite navigating the final 1/16th of a mile in 7 seconds tells you everything you need to know about the rest.

DON’T OVERLOOK JOCKEY TRENDS AND ANGLES AT SARATOGA & DELMAR

A horse's jockey is one of the most important handicapping elements to consider before horseplayers make their bets. When making selections, the jockey and various jockey moves and trends should always be considered in conjunction with your other handicapping angles to come up with your best possible pick in every race.

Two of the best jockey colonies anywhere at any time of the year are currently in action at the summer's premier race meets at Saratoga and Del Mar.  With roughly a week of action in the books early on at both tracks, let's take a closer look into which jockeys…

Spa Notes For Saturday, July 23

SPA SHOTS - Saturday, July 23

NOTE - After main track played cuppy on Friday times were relatively quicker on Saturday, indicating some maintenance was done in between.

RACE 1 - 25K Claimer - NW2L - 6 ½ Furlongs - 3 YO-UpTodd Pletcher had first and second favorite when they left the gate but only one finished. Favored ZAMJARA was pulled up on the 7/16ths pole and vanned off while second favored MONEY CHANGER went right to the lead and wired the field in a sharp time. He appears to like the surface and will win again. Also nice effort from second…

RACE 1 - NYSB 1 1/8 Mile Second Level Allowance/Optional 40K Claimer - 3 YO-UpIt began right away and throughout the day on the main track the surface was somewhat cuppy and tiring. Winner CLIFTON PLEASURE got a great trip from the rail, was able to run measured fractions just off the pace and easily came off the rail heading into the far turn, remained close and pulled clear in the final strides. BATTLE OF EVERMORE got just the opposite a trip. He was strung out wide on the first…

DEL MAR AND SARATOGA - RACING’S BEST TIME OF THE YEAR IS NOW

The summer racing seasons at Del Mar and Saratoga are all about the top horses, trainers and jockeys in horseracing, and the top-notch handicapping and betting opportunities that go along with them. The fields will be huge, the competition will be stiff and evenly-matched, and the payoffs will often be pricey and loaded with good value for horseplayers who are willing to put in the necessary effort.

Del Mar is already underway and Saratoga is ready to kick-off its 2016 meet on Friday, July 22. Both meets will last the remainder of the summer up through Labor Day.

Del Mar and Saratoga…

SARATOGA HANDICAPPING TIPS AND STATS FOR THE WINNING EDGE

Saratoga is America's premier annual horseracing meet, and there is no better place for race fans and handicappers to watch, wager, and enjoy the best summertime racing than at "The Spa" meet, which annually brings together the best horses, trainers, and jockeys in North American racing.  The competition on the track is stiff and evenly-matched, and a lot of rookie handicappers are adding money to the pari-mutuel pools.

IN-DEPTH SARATOGA TRAINER TRENDS AND ANGLES FOR SERIOUS PROFITS

Opportunities always abound for serious horseplayers to get their share of profits over the course of the seven-week Saratoga meet. The keys to unlocking those profit opportunities often lie in knowing the important trainer trends that tend to dominate handicapping at high-profile race meets like Saratoga, because many handicappers believe the "trainer angle" is the single most important piece of the handicapping pie

Bet trainers at their strengths and bet against them at their weaknesses, and your win percentage and return on investment will go upward quickly. The Saratoga meet is filled with extremely competitive fields and difficult handicapping puzzles, but…

Saratoga Juvenile Stakes Races
SARATOGA SIGHTINGSVOL. 16 - Number 3SARATOGA JUVENILE STAKES RACES

In our first two editions of the 2016 SARATOGA SIGHTINGS we took a look at Juvenile Dirt Sprint Maidens and followed that with a look at Juvenile Turf Maidens (run at the sprint distance of 5 ½ furlongs and the two turn distance of 1 1/16ths miles.) If you haven't availed yourself of the information you can check it out in the archives.

Now it is time for the concluding segment of the Juvenile Previews as we look at the Two-Year Old Stakes Races. For purposes of this preview we are looking at…

Saratoga Juvenile Turf Maiden Races
SARATOGA SIGHTINGSVOL. 16 - Number 2SARATOGA JUVENILE TURF MAIDEN RACES

On Saturday we took a look at the 2015 juvenile maiden dirt sprints and gave you a few ideas of what to look for as you "handicap forward."

In today's SARATOGA SIGHTINGS we'll stay with the juvenile maidens but move to the turf for the two distances they run those races at...5½ furlongs and 1 1/16th miles.

Another departure from Saturday's overview is that we are taking a look at BOTH 2015 and 2014 and doing so for one very important reason.

If you take a look at the collective results for each year…
