Race 4 – Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1)

NOBLE TUNE has been perfect in both his starts. He owns a nice turn of foot and no doubt will benefit from a fast pace. He has trained well for this race and should be right there at the wire. KNOW MORE has always had a touch of class. The Doug O’Neill-trained juvenile will try the turf for the first time, but his polytrack races at Del Mar were excellent and he has the pedigree to make the transition. DUNDONNELL is the top European invader on recent form. He hails from the powerful Juddmonte Stable and they didn’t ship him to California to get hot and dirty. BROWN ALMIGHTY has been running big races on the turf all summer. He should be on all your exotic tickets at his ridiculous 20-1 morning line. DRY SUMMER has beaten both Power Broker and Title Contender and cannot be ignored in his return to turf. Read more

Race 4 – The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint

MERIT MAN has a slight pace advantage over his chief rival SUPER NINETY NINE so we will give him the edge in the Breeders’ Cup opener. HIGHTAIL will be flying late and could pick up the pieces if a speed duel develops. Read more

“To Bet or Not To Bet”

By Jude “Pontiff of the Pick Four” Feld

When Oakland A’s catcher George Kottaras hit an important game-winning home run against the Texas Rangers in the final throes of the 2012 season, he said, “We stuck to our game plan.” Read more

I just had one of the best winning streaks of my life. Several factors contributed to the rarified air I was breathing, most importantly the weather, which was about as spectacular as one could imagine during upstate New York and Chicago summers. Focused handicapping and solid betting also played their part. It is never a bad thing when you get to know your mutuel clerk on a first name basis. Read more

All Ubercapper

By Jude “Pontiff of the Pick Four” Feld

Equibase handicapper Ellis Starr and I have been friends for over a decade. Both Kentucky transplants from California, we share a love of Thoroughbred racing and a fascination with the puzzles of handicapping. He was my regular cohort during my stint as host for, “Today in Thoroughbred Racing,” a weekly radio show devoted to the betterment of the sport and the intricacies of playing the horses. Read more

Giant Killers and Graveyards

By Jude “Pontiff of the Pick Four” Feld

The Whitney Handicap (G1) was run last Saturday and all week long at Saratoga we were treated to replays of Onion beating the great Secretariat in the historic event. It was one of Thoroughbred racing’s biggest upsets of the last century and people talked about it at water coolers, bars and kitchen tables for weeks. Read more

Summer has arrived and that harkens the opening of American racing’s two most attended meets, Del Mar and Saratoga. Thoroughbred racing fans are quite divided about which racing Mecca is best. Both have their strengths and weaknesses but it really boils down to personal preference or family custom as to which side horseplayers take. Read more
