First of all, I wanted to commend Santa Anita, Nate Newby, Tom Quigley, et al, for running a perfect handicapping tournament this past weekend. Top flight food, booze, hospitality, seating arrangements, format ( NO triples was a big hit, as were doubles ! ) and overall customer experience. Additionally, they…
Hope everyone had a fun day yesterday. As for the Preakness, I will simply say that Nyquist was much better than his rider. What Gutierrez did ( pressing a 20-1 shot off a 22 1/5 opening quarter on a slow track with NO ONE pressing you ) has to be…
Nothing to write home about yesterday with just one chalky win. We're pulling double duty today with a Pimlico writeup, too, as well as being in a big contest this weekend at Santa Anita. Feel free to say hi if you're at the track ! Today's Beatable Favorite(s): None I…
Just a couple of chalky winners on the day yesterday, but we banged out a rolling late Pick 4 for $2,178 ( $162 bet ). Gotta follow those unders ! Today's Beatable Favorite(s): Race 3 - #3 Batti Man  Race 4 - #3 Mrs. Guty  Race 8 - #5 Conquest…
We finished off our opening week in fine fashion Sunday with a $42 winner, a nose beat ( our 3rd in two days  ), and two showings at double digit odds. Additionally we banged out a $328 triple box, and another for $145 as well as a $329 Rolling DD…
We steam right along at S.A., as we bang out a grand slam on the day yesterday ( along with 3 runner up finishes---two of them "bob beats" ), and tally up three exactas ( $27, $9 and $39 ) and one exacta box for $42. We'll actually be heading…
Now THAT's how you start it off !!  Shows you how fickle this game can be. After going an abysmal 2-27 on Derby weekend ( like always, FULL disclosure ), we begin our Santa Anita coverage here with a profitable 2 for 8 day, a $30 exacta reverse, two triple…
We're back in action today at Santa Anita, and will be covering the California circuit straight through the summer, in addition to our Preakness & Belmont Day writeups. For those new to the column, we always like to remind you to pay extra special attention to our "unders" as sometimes…
Another afternoon where the track started out wet, and dried out during the day, as the turf course was boggy throughout.   No excuses for us, tho, as we had everything updated like we normally do, but sometimes you're the bug, and sometimes you're the windshield. Yesterday, we were the…
A good deal of rain fell here over the last 24 hours, and as we're not quite sure as to whether or not the turf course will dry out by post ( although the dirt course usually does. refresh this page after the scratches for any amendments. Today's Beatable Favorite(s):…
