Not really sure if ill bet at all, but am tempted by Tu Brutus, the horse scratched which was entered in the Birdstone stakes that Hard Study won Thursday.Quote: onenickelmiracle
I'm betting #9 Silver Dust in the WV derby, and that's that. Think I'm maybe gambling 1,7,8,9 $1 tri box as well. Patch deserves respect, but I'm not going to give it to him. Was tempted to bet win on the 7 originally but changed my mind.
Think I'm going to risk a win bet on Tu Brutus over Gun Runner Saturday, but unsure yet.
Made from lucky that won the WV derby 2015, is going to be racing there that day too btw.
I don't like her voice because it seems fake to me. Her pronunciation is quite emphasized in an unnatural way too. They put people on tvg that talk like that(lessor roles), over pronouncing words trying to portray confidence with EVERYTHING they say. I dont like it because I can't tell when they're truly confident.Quote: FinsRule
It's really been a month since Lo Duca left? He went to NYRA to replace Mig.
Candace does the late shift international racing for TVG. She knows her stuff. Not everyone has a perfect voice.
Can I get an opinion on a betting system someone told me about ten years ago.
They used it for the Breeders Cup. What they did was pick the best jockey( Jerry Bailey) at the time and only bet his horses. The assumption being the best jockey won't get shut out on racing's biggest day. They martingaled him, which worked great when he lost four races before winning at around $23, lost three and then paid $12 or so. That day, it paid off.
So , rather than dissecting the whole system, is focusing on the jockey a large factor in wagering?
I assume if two horses both rate 100 on scale, you would go with the better jockey, but how about if a 95 horse has the better jockey than a horse you rate 100?
