Winner of the NTRA/ DRF Handicapping Championship, Eclipse Award, and Breeder's Cup Challenge, and his stint on Esquire TV Horseplayers was a must-see
I won a lot of big stakes races at Belmont, Gulfstream and Santa Anita. But I made my biggest scores at Aqueduct because I learned decades ago that more than any other winter race meet that there are many fresh opportunities to benefit from information the general public takes too long to catch on to.
WHAT GIVES ME THE EDGE HERE?
IT STARTS WHEN THE BIG NAME TRAINERS
AND RIDERS SHIP TO FLORIDA.
Those that remain are veteran hard boot claiming trainers who carefully pick their spots and often hide form as they look to not only collect purse money but collect at the windows. Also, that presents an opportunity for sharp under-the-radar trainers and aspiring jockeys to shift to Aqueduct to begin making a name for themselves.

For horsemen this is the place to be. Shippers from New York, Kentucky and the mid-Atlantic states love to run here. The purses are terrific, hopes are high, and the fields are full. Every trainer's got a horse under wraps and a plan. And I see through all the moves. I know which runners are being "sent" to get the money.

While I am known as a "New York Guy," that is because it is where I got my start. But after four decades of high level handicapping I've created an encyclopedia of nationwide connections. In winning so many handicapping contests, I'm in touch with other contest winners, and if I need additional info on certain horses out west, I get it from people who know. More than any other winter race meet these connections are crucial to my Santa Anita success. My Santa Anita KNOWLEDGE + CONNECTIONS has often been a deciding factor in winning a handicapping contest and will a deciding factor in finding winning races.
