If you like betting with an edge, what could be better than getting a professional evaluation of the current form in an accurate single number. Then you can adjust each number with respect to your own handicapping as you bring other factors into the mix. That’s why our best (longest and most frequent) customers are serious handicappers… Our customers are smart and sharp!

Scroll down for Race #13 from Saratoga
Saturday’s Race Card from Saratoga…
From race #6 thru Race #11 we have 6 consecutive GRADE 1 races. They are all interesting handicapping events and they are all races that get into your soul. One example of that, as it effects me, I always look forward to the Personal Ensign, it gives me an opportunity to wax nostalgic, as I recall the career of the filly I consider to be the BEST I HAVE EVER SEEN! ANd in particular, to recall her amazing win over Kentucky Derby winner, Winning Colors, in the BC Distaff, closing relentlessly on a sloppy track that I thought favored front speed – on that day. I believe she remains the only horse to have an undefeated career who raced exclusively in Grade 1 company!
Even the great American Pharoah will not be able to say that if he wins the Travers and everything else he tries in the future. Neither could Zenyata or Seattle Slew or Affirmed or Secretariat. But this amazing filly with 13 screws in her leg DID!
Tomorrow we see basically a two horse race – at least to this handicapper – int he Travers. The great American Pharoah and Texas Red who should be coming into the Travers loaded to the maximum. What we will need to find out is what is Texas Red’s best effort, which no doubt he will need to beat American Pharoah. While on the other hand, American Pharoah is showing more early speed since running in the Triple Crown, this is unusual to say the least. For a Triple Crown combantant to be increasing his early speed at this time of the season is “way unusual” , at this stage of the season they are usually a little worn out and getting more relaxed – more willing to rate. But the American Pharoah is showing more brilliance. Normally, I would think this is a wonderful sign, but in truth, for this type of horse, we really do not know what this explosion of brilliance really means…
I am pretty certain, my play will be a win wager on Texas Red and a strong exacta with American Pharoah – back and forth… I don’t think we need to look beyond these two for the win and place…
Because we are limited to only 12 races on the Power Page, I am publishing race #13 here on our web-site… Good luck to all —

So we have 11 races at Saratoga tomorrow, as the entree to Travers’s weekend. ARE THEY KIDDING ME. I sometimes wonder if they — management at the track – can’t figure out they are over-exposing their customers to too many races and wearing them out. If you would like my opinion, I would handicapp 7 or 8 races – consecutive races – go an play those, conserve some energy for the weekend — and play some of the races – NOT ALL OF THE RACES. Eventually, we all get exhausted and start to make mistakes and our handicapping becomes more challenged because we are tired…
So get a good night’s sleep, eat well and handicap feeling fresh and fit… That’s the biggest edge…
