An exciting week of races ahead, capped by a terrific day of stakes from New York on Saturday. A few changes to note. First, outside of major races, race previews will now appear in their entirety on twitter at @alldayracing.com. In addition, instead of featuring a single race, I will be focusing on one particular multi-wager sequence that can be played effectively by a recreational player. This includes daily doubles, Pick 3’s, Pick 4’s, and Pick 5’s.The entire sequence will be previewed and hosted on twitter.
The website will continue to feature essays on handicapping as well as commentary on the sport, as well as previews of significant races. I’m reworking the tag cloud to provide an easy way into the increasing content of the site. In addition, a podcast is also set to launch later this week. This week’s episode features handicapping author, Mark Cramer. Mark’s books are the seminal works on value and bettor psychology, and are an absolute must for any serious horseplayer. Mark now lives in Paris, but still keeps an eye on American racing, especially the classics. We discuss value and recap the Belmont Stakes, among other topics.
