Wunderdog had another good day at Saratoga yesterday with three of our six top picks winning, including our Best Bet #2 "R King of the Road" ($11.40) in race #7. That race also keyed an exacta that paid $81.50 and a tri-fecta that returned a cool $1,233.00.
Our meet record so far is 6-for-10 with on top winners and 2-for-2 with Best Bets.

This afternoon we have five races from the "Spa."  To suscribe to the "DOG"  Click Here!!

Chantel Sutherland won her first Race at Del Mar yesterday.  The folks at TVG seem to think she will be having a big meet there.  Not only is this lady pretty damn goodlooking but she always gives her best effort at race time. 

Bouncing Horses

Horseplayers often argue about the Bounce Theory involving thoroughbreds. Some say it’s practical, others say that’s bunk.

Basically, a horse than bounces simply suffers a negative reaction to his previous outing. Many handicappers, like myself, believe that usually happens after a runner exerts a strenuous effort. Others have their doubts.

To illustrate the theory, say a horse’s speed figures have languished in the lower 70s until winning a route on the grass, posting an 88. In the next start, the thoroughbred is most likely to bounce if the runner is:
  • Racing on the dirt. Grass is an easier surface where horses can string together more consistent trips.
  • A front-runner. Pressured pacesetters are susceptible to fading.
  • Entered in a sprint. Pace is faster in shorter distances, taking its toll on horses. Routes have more even pace figures.
  • Coming off the comeback race within three weeks or less. According to Team Valor racing co-partner Jeff Siegel, "A trainer’s patch-up job after a very fast, very hard race becomes undone.”
  • A claimer. Cheaper animals tend to regress more than stakes horses, who get better handling and more rest.
  • A filly. Females have a tendency to bounce more often than males.
Horses usually bounce off a big move forward that might be triggered by first-time Lasix, a new trainer or jockey, switching to a new surface, changes in equipment, etc.

Reasons for the big move forward likely will have an impact on the possible bounce. Past performances can be your guide. But consider each case individually.

Not all believe in the bounce theory, including Steven Crist, publisher of the Daily Racing Form: “True bouncing probably does occur in relatively rare instances where a big-figure race was genuinely a taxing one, and is more likely to occur when a horse returns on short rest or has been racing frequently and is starting to tail off.

Just because a horse happened to run a career-best race doesn't automatically mean the performance can’t be repeated.”

That’s especially true of young horses when they’re developing en route to becoming stakes contenders. If the price is right, a bet is worth the gamble.

Twinspires Profit Line Numbers

As discussed yesterday, Twinspires online betting account offers some very useful handicapping tools.  One tool I use regularly is "PROFITLINE"  Profitline is a propriety product developed by Brisnet similar to a morning line.  The difference is in the result, Profitline is a far better predictor of outcome.
I have long believed that the general betting public overbets favorites based on the morning line.  Over the years I have developed a system that takes advantage of differences in the morning line and Profitline allowing me to take advantage of well ment horses that are overlooked by the betting public. 

Horses that fit that pattern today at PARX are:

Race 1    # 7         One of The Best   
Race 3    # 4         Rapala
Race 6    # 7         Indy Tune
Race 7    # 9         Victory Cat
Race 8    # 2         Bpomding Bi
Race 9    # 2         Bigbossman

Lets see how we do at the end of the day.   If you would like a free copy of this system email me.Send me an email by clicking here..  I will be back to you as quick as possible.

Online Horse Racing

If You Like this article please tweet to others

Online Horse Racing  With Twinspires

Horse racing isn't immune from technology advances.  Today the average person can watch and wager on horse racing from the comfort of their living room.  There are many reputable sites that can accommodate your wager but I use Twinspires

While TwinSpires is the Official online wagering site of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby, players are able to wager on virtually every Thoroughbred, Harness and Quarter Horse race from venues across the globe.

Having an online account has allowed me to be more businesslike and professional with my wagering actives.  I no longer have to drive to the race track or simulcast center to place bets saving time and gas.  I no longer place bets on races I have no interest in out of the boredom of waiting for my race.  I even save money an calories by eliminating the temptation of a beer and hot dog.  Having an online account has allowed me to bet every day on only the races I want to bet.  It has allowed me to test systems, and generally keep better focus on my task at hand.

I don't recall how long I have had a Twinspires account but I can tell you it was before they called it Twinspires.  It was known than as Brisnet.  In casual conversation I still refer my online account as my Brisnet account.  Aside from the longevity and trust I have for Twinspites, and the reasons detailed above, here are a few more reasons to consider signing up for a free Twinspires account today.
  • It is FREE to join.  No kidding you can join, and without even making a deposit you have live video access to tracks across the country, and Australia.  I  don't know about you but sometimes I just want to see a race without betting.  Twinspires allows you to do this with no restrictions. 
  • Also for FREE you enjoy unlimited access to certain, not all, Brisnet handicapping and speed figures.  I will get into these numbers in a later edition but I have found them to be easier and better predictors than the Daily Racing Form.  Also since they are FREE they are less expensive than the racing form.
  • $100 Sign Up Bonus.  After you have wagered $100 Twinspires deposits another $100 in your account.
  • If you refer a friend to Twinspires your friend gets the same $100 deal and you get a $50 Refer A Friend Bonus.
  • Every time you bet you earn points in their Twinspires Referal Program.  Earn enough points and you can redeem them for cash or merchandise.
  • You can Deposit money through EZmoney, credit on debit cards online.  You can request checks for your winnings anytime.

Hats at Saratoga

The Saratoga meet is full of traditions.  From the traditional tolling of the bell 18 minutes before post to the live music playing before the grandstands, Saratoga never changes.  It's like Saratoga is frozen in time.

For years Saratoga has maintained a formal dress code.  I always bring a sports jacket with just in case I am fortunate enough to find box seats as Saratoga has always enforced a "jacket only" policy for all box seat holders.

Another part of that tradition is lady's hats.  The big, floppy, colorful, floral hats.

On Sunday July 24th Saratoga will host it's 20th annual hat contest.  The tradition signal's the beginning of summer racing at the spa.  Registration will begin at noon  in the grandstand.  The contest will feature the following categories:
  • Kreative Kids for youngsters under 18
  • Fashionably Saratoga

  • Uniquely Saratoga.  Past applicants include battery operated hats.
The contest takes place after the second, third, and fourth races.  Prizes are awarded for each category.

So ladies before embarking on your trip to Saratoga be sure to take your best summer sun hat and enter the contest.  If you don't have a sun hat click here to get more information.

My $50,000 Year At The Races

Before the Saratoga season gets underway I always like to go back and review my library of horse racing books.  Not to date myself, but the first book I ever read on horse racing was Andy Beyer's "My $50,000 Year At The Races".  Andy Beyer, creator of the BEYER speed figures, spent a year traveling to various race tracks in a quest to make a living as a professional horse player.  Andy has written far better books explaining the art of horse handicapping but I think I found this book to be more entertaining.  Reading this book will get you mentally ready to take on the pros in Saratoga.  If your interested in Andy's other books Click Here. 

July 13 Wunderdog Results


Wunderdog is a sports picking newsletter I have subscribed to for a little over a year.  I don't know much about their sports pick but I really like their horse racing selections.  They provide a free newsletter every racing day giving you  at least2 races to bet on.  As I have been betting these selections with some success, I thought posting the daily results would be a nice feature of this newsletter.  I do plan on also publishing more on my new system using Wunderdog free and pay subscriptions at a later installment.  For now lets just look at the raw data. To get your free daily pick subscription CLICK HERE.  Also of note, Wunderdog publishes all past picks on their website and you don't have to be a subscriber to have access.

Daily Picks are usually from one east coast track (Belmont) and one west coast track (Hollywood).  Since both were dark yesterday they sent selections from Delaware and Woodbine.  Received my e-mail at 11:13am, plenty of time before the 2:35pm projected post. 

DELAWARE PARK Race #4 at 2:35 PM Eastern

Top pick: #3 (TRIPPLITE) - He was defeated by today's rival Giron last out but was under intense pressure from the start and battled until mid-strech where he weakened to finish 3rd. There's not much other speed signed up and this gelding might get an easy lead this afternoon. The top pick.
2nd pick: #7 (Giron) - Consistent 6yo has won his last pair after coming back from a long layoff and he has fine positional speed. Gelding by "Elusive Quality"loves this surface(7-3-1-2) and is 5 for 8 at this distance. Win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Cowboy Gets Even) - Strong finisher drops down this afternoon and is capable of impacting no matter what the pace scenario is, though the faster the better.
4th pick: #5 (Fancy Runner) - Has alot of back class and makes back to back starts today for trainer Nick Petro who claimed him in March at Philadelphia. May inprove enough off his latest to be a part of this.

  1. #2 (Cowboy Gets Even)                        $6.00          $3.00         $2.60
  2. #3 (TRIPPLITE)                                                      $2.80         $2.80
  3. #6 (Babylon Rich)                                                                      $4.60
$2.00 Exacta    $15.40          Giron - Scratched

WOODBINE Race #1 at 6:45 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (RECONNECT) - Filly has the best early speed and draws the shortest route home in this two-turn contest.Home-bred should have little trouble getting to the front and can take them from gate to wire.
2nd pick: #4 (Classic Maria) - Much improved of late, she was an impressive winner at this trip when getting her maiden win June 15 and home-bred has a fine maintenance drill on July 8. Contends for the top spot.
3rd pick: #3 (Forest Maid) - Daughter of Old Forester has exchanged decisions with Reconnect the two times they've met but needs to finish a bit better to beat both of the other picks.

  1. #4 (Classic Maria)                           $6.40          $3.60         $2.60
  2. #1 (RECONNECT)                                           $3.80         $2.20
  3. #3 (Forest Maid)                                                                  $2.30
$2.00 Exacta     $19.40     $2.00 Trifectra     $38.10

Only 10 Days Until The First Race Of 2011 At Saratoga

Its that time of year again!!  Only 10 days until Saratoga opens for horse racing.  First post @ 1:00 July 22nd.  This will be my 7th year traveling to the Adirondacks to experience the carnival like atmosphere that is Saratoga. 

I have always stayed at the Brunswick Bed and Breakfast ( right across the street from the main track. Kirk Nicholes is the owner and does an amazing job of looking out for his guests.  The Inn's front porch is a perfect place to enjoy an "early evening adult beverage" while watching the race crowds clear.  Excellent people watching location. 

Mornings come early for me as I always attend the morning workouts.  The Brunswick's location allows me to walk to the track enjoying the cool early morning mountain air.  I always purchase a coffee under the stands, walk up to the boxes behind the clocker and watch the horses go through their routines.

Then its back to the porch to enjoy a great breakfast courtesy of Kirk.  After a quick shower its off to an afternoon of races.  Even if your not a fan the track is beautiful.  Banjo's playing, lots of food, picnic tables all contribute to a carnival like experience.

After racing it back to the porch for adult beverages.  I can usually be seen later in the evening at the bar next to the Brunswick called the Stillwater.  Great food and great drinks!!  Sometimes I'll walk downtown, about a mile away and land at the Parting Glass.  The Parting Glass is known for a meeting place for jockeys, exercise riders and trainers.

Next day I start all over again.
