Understandably the Green Flash Handicap will not get the attention that the graded stakes races will receive on Pacific Classic Day at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, but the five-furlong event over the sod drew an extremely strong group of turf sprinters for the Friday twilight feature. The field is led by the top two finishers in last year’s Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) over this course. #2 Stormy Liberal makes his second start of the form cycle after a [...]

by DS Williamson The injury ravaged Arizona Cardinals couldn’t do much last season. Their offense was absolutely atrocious. Have the 2018 Arizona Cardinals improved enough to battle for the NFC West Division? Or, will this be another long season of suffering in the desert? Can Arizona rediscover it’s rushing attack? The Cardinals had one of the absolute worst offenses in the NFL last season. The reason is because 2016 superstar running back David Johnson got hurt early. Johnson never stepped [...]

By |August 14th, 2018|Categories: NFL, SportsWire|Tags: , , |

The 2018 Los Angeles Rams are destined to be one of the best teams in the NFL this season. At least, that’s what everyone is saying. Is it true? Could the Rams return to prominence this coming season? Some say a regression to the mean is likely after adding so many new faces, big egos and supreme talents.

by DS Williamson The Nebraska Conrhuskers got the prize coach from last season. Scott Frost, a former star quarterback with Nebraska, coached the Central Florida Knights to an undefeated regular season and an upset victory over the Auburn Tigers in the Peach Bowl. Auburn was the third best team from the loaded SEC last season. It’s apparent that Frost knows what he’s doing. But, knowing what you’re doing doesn’t always translate to victories in college football. There’s still factors like player [...]

Super Saver and jockey Calvin Borel after winning the 2010 Kentucky Derby (Photo by Churchill Downs/Reed Palmer Photography) Wouldn’t it be nice if we could predict when track biases will appear and wager accordingly, yielding impressive profits while simultaneous gaining some bragging rights? Perhaps it sounds far-fetched, but truthfully, it’s not as hard as it sounds. We already discussed last week how to capitalize on a bias in the weeks that follow its appearance; now we’ll delve into [...]

Sunday cards offer varying degrees of competition

By |August 13th, 2018|Categories: RacingWire|

A pair of harness racing venues that seem to have little in common offered solid cards on Sunday as Tioga Downs in New York presented a stakes-filled program while overnight events comprised the 12-race program at Ocean Downs in Maryland, five miles west of the beaches. Sunday's feature at Tioga Downs was technically the $185,000 Crawford Farms for older trotters, accompanied by the $140,000 Joie De Vie for trotting mares, although many would contend the eliminations for the Empire Breeders [...]
