NRM Saratoga Trip Notes

(Monday 8/22 – Thursday 8/25)

NOTE: As the final weeks of the meet approach a number of these horses will not race back at Saratoga. However, a large percentage of them will run at Belmont. You should also check the Monmouth entries as well as the likes of Delaware. We will mention in the TRIP NOTES below if we believe a horsed will be possible at multiple locations.

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…

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…
