We welcome in Kentucky Derby and Breeders' Cup winning trainer John Servis to talk about his winter training routines, his top filly Jaywalk, his career, and more!
We're thrilled to welcome in multiple Grade 1 winning trainer Al Stall Jr. to the show to talk about his horse Tom's d'Etat who is running in the Pegasus World Cup in a couple weeks. We also talk about Al's career, training in New Orleans and more. Jason also opens the show sharing some memories of his uncle Mel Stottlemyre who passed away on Sunday.
Although it's unlikely that impressive Grade 1 Malibu winner McKinzie's supplemented to the January 26 Pegasus World Cup, 4 new shooters will join. All 4 have an outside shot to win the lion's share of the world's richest horse race. 2-of-3 might be considered legitimate contenders to take down Accelerate and City of Light. Check out profiles of Patternrecognition, Kukulkan, True Timber, and Audible, 4 horses looking to upset the chalk at the 2019 Pegasus World Cup. Kukulkan, Patternrecognition, Audible [...]
Racing at Aqueduct on New Year's Day - Photo by Chelsea Durand/Adam Coglianese Photography January. Winter racing on cold days. You can’t get much farther removed from the glorious summer days at Saratoga and Del Mar, can you? While some tracks in warmer climes provide some semblance of the summer sport even during the doldrums of winter, the differences between racing in summer and racing in January extend well beyond a shift in average outdoor temperature. Actually, handicapping [...]
We're looking back at all the racing action from the weekend including stakes races from Santa Anita, Gulfstream Park, and Aqueduct.
During the weekend in which the National Football League determined its final four teams for the conference championship games next weekend, both Yonkers Raceway and the Meadowlands offered solid Saturday cards during an area spared much of the same winter storm that slammed the Mid-Atlantic region. A quartet of events during the middle of the Saturday card at Yonkers proved to highlight several classy trotters and pacers as well as the track's leading driver. In a non-winners of $30,000 last [...]
Question: Will deep closers who rally from the back of the pack have any chance to contend for a significant piece of the purse in the 2019 Pegasus World Cup (gr. I) at Gulfstream Park? It seems like nine-furlong races at Gulfstream Park often receive special scrutiny since they start so close to the first turn and there’s always concern about horses drawn outside getting hung wide and losing all chance. But might the running style of each individual horse [...]
Aqueduct (Coglianese Photo) When a lightly-raced horse fires off a huge effort, particularly over a wet track, it can be difficult to know if it’s a fair representation of their talent or a fluke that they’re unlikely to repeat. That’s one of the challenges facing handicappers in Sunday’s $100,000 Rego Park Stakes at Aqueduct, a 6 ½-furlong event for New York-bred three-year-olds. The probable favorite, #2 Blindwillie McTell, ran huge over a sloppy, sealed track in the New [...]
We're getting ready for the weekend and looking at the stakes for Saturday at Santa Anita. The BARN Jury tell us who they think will have a big 2019 and then John Piassek from the Daily Gallop joins us to talk about Laurel's four stakes on Saturday.
This is the premier episode of a new special series we're doing called "My Big Score" where we talk with players and look back at some of their biggest scores at the windows. In this episode we talk with Josh from Canada as he tells us about how a weekend with friends at Woodbine and a mis-click at the windows led to a big Pick 3 score.
