Eddie Mac’s Book: A Nod To Maxfield at Churchill; Chad Brown Looking Good at Del Mar - Posted on: November 25, 2021

By Ed McNamara There’s always a hangover after the Breeders’ Cup, the final exam for horseplayers. If you did well, you have happy memories. If not, like me, you soured on the game temporarily. As Frank Sinatra sang in “My Way”: “Regrets, I have a few.” Here’s why I’ve been beating myself up lately. After obsessively researching the turf races, I spoke with my friend Craig, also a connoisseur of grass racing. He mentioned there was a Saturday pick 4 linking the Turf Sprint, Filly & Mare Turf, Mile and Turf. “This is right up our alley,” he said. No

Don’t Be An Egomaniac! 4 Steps to Overcome Ego at the Track - Posted on: November 25, 2021

By Ray Wallin It feels good to win. It feels bad to lose. Your ego will either make you feel like a success or an utter failure. Spending time thinking either way is a surefire way to lose money at the track. When we lose and see others win, we are often resentful that someone else figured the race correctly and we didn’t. When we win, we think we are smarter than the next handicapper. In our minds it is a criticism of our handicapping. Where there is criticism, there is a reaction. Regardless of winning or losing, the reaction

Fall Racing’s Last Hurrah at the Big A, Churchill, Del Mar - Posted on: November 23, 2021

By Noel Michaels The table is set for a high-quality fall season finale beginning with the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Some top tracks will be serving up extra helpings of great racing, including Aqueduct, Churchill Downs and Del Mar. These three tracks will keep running through early December, which makes it easier for horseplayers to narrow their focus to these three simulcast signals. Of course, there are other tracks you may have a personal preference for as Tampa Bay Downs at the Fair Grounds are opening their winter meets, and Gulfstream Park begins its championship season on Dec. 4, with the

The Farrell Report: Giving Thanks to Horse Racing - Posted on: November 23, 2021

By Mike Farrell Thanksgiving is here again, that time when we pause to acknowledge our many blessings. There are multiple reasons for racing fans to reflect on this past season. We can all give thanks this for: Fans in the stands. Even though capacity was capped for many major stakes, it was reassuring to see people back in the seats and hear the cheers, and occasional jeers, from the grandstand. The game thrives on that give and take between the human and equine athletes on track and those with wagers on the outcome. May we never lose that again. The

By Ray Wallin As handicappers we have all made mistakes. Even those who make their living playing the races have been known to slip up from time to time or have an error in judgment.
