A Glimpse at Aqueduct’s New-Look Winter Jockey Colony

The next time you’re betting Aqueduct and look up on the tote board to see the 3-5 favorite with Dylan Davis, Trevor McCarthy, Kendrick Carmouche, or Angel Arroyo named aboard for the mount, you don’t need to check your eyeglass prescription or question the accuracy of your Daily Racing Form or the track program.  It’s probably not a misprint.  The Aqueduct jockey colony has been turned upside-down and inside-out this winter, and it is expected to stay that way, or perhaps get even worse until the big-name riders begin to filter back into town after April 1.

Aqueduct bettors need to…

THE ROAD TO THE KENTUCKY DERBY IS OPEN

Right around this time a year ago the Derby Preps and conversation regarding the prospects for the 2017 Kentucky derby and Triple Crown was under way.

For most serious barns the nominations had been filed early, the serious contenders had raced as juveniles and the scuttlebutt was sounded regarding those promising newly turned three-year olds who were about to begin their foundations.

Now it is mid-January in 2018 and with the Jerome Stakes at Aqueduct and the Lecomte Stakes at Fair Grounds having been run this past Saturday, along with the Smarty Jones at Oaklawn set for Martin Luther King Monday, the…

NEVER TOO EARLY TO START THINKING KENTUCKY DERBY

We're still more than three months out from the First Saturday in May, but for horseracing fans it's never too early to start thinking about the Kentucky Derby. Yes, the Derby itself will last only about two minutes - the Fastest Two Minutes in Sports - that doesn't mean we can't have months of fun talking about it in advance.  After all, the waiting is almost as much fun as the actual race.  So for those of you who just can't get enough Derby talk, here is some advance analysis of the soon-to-be 3-year-old class of 2018 Kentucky Derby hopefuls.

JIM HURLEY’S GULFSTREAM REPORT Wednesday, 12/27/17

On this sight I will be posting my GULFSTREAM REPORT on Wednesday each week throughout the Championship Meet. I will take a look at various aspects that a bettor should consider (today we take a look at 5 furlong sprints and betting jockeys) plus each week will have a Horses To Watch List.

Make sure to check in weekly.

(FIVE FURLONG TURF SPRINTS ARE PRETTY MUCH WHAT THE BETTOR EXPECTS)

There is no doubt that for most bettors the first glance at the past performances of a 5 furlong turf sprint is one which searches for the front end or pressing and-or stalking…

DON’T WAIT TO TAKE ACTION AT SANTA ANITA…LOTS OF REASONS TO PLAY EARLY

Are you ready for the DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS?

There is one place where you should be, and that is at Santa Anita Park where the Winter Race Meet has its traditional Opening Day on December 26.

Below we’ll take a look at some of the angles that can be gleaned from last and past years’ last days of December and January Racing at the venue. But first let’s take a look at the most important reason for getting involved from day one of the meet…THE PAYOFFS.

Just as always last year was a VALUE PLAYER’S BONANZA.

Over the course of the opening week…

AQUEUDUCT WINTER HANDICAPPING PROGRESS REPORT

For many horseplayers and handicappers, winter racing means Gulfstream, Santa Anita, and other warm weather locales as the best racing of the season migrates away from cold places like Kentucky and closed circuits in Chicago and Canada.  But there's at least one cold weather place where racing continues going strong all through the winter, and it's a place that handicappers need to not overlook - Aqueduct.

Even if you are the type of winter horseplayer who prefers to play the "big winter meets" at this time of year, Aqueduct offers excellent betting opportunities for winter racing horseplayers, particularly on weekends, with…

FIRST FULL WEEK AT AQUEDUCT INNER DIRT TRACK AND GULFSTREAM ARE MUST PLAY OPPORTUNITIES

A Message From National Handicapping Champ, John Conte:

On Wednesday, December 6th racing makes what appears to be “across the street moves.”

At Aqueduct, racing simply makes a move from the main dirt course oval to the winterized Inner Dirt Track oval that circles just inside that main track.

In Florida, racing switches from Gulfstream Park West (formerly known as Calder Race Course) to Gulfstream Park. Though many of the barns that raced during the just completed Calder meet will be in action, there will be the usual invasion of top notch barns from all over the country for what is hands down…
