Fantastic!!

Mitch, you win because you have put in the work. You have confidence. Many of the youngsters to Pace and Cap and RDSS haven't. I can't count how many have come on and posted only to start asking...

Admittedly...

I am a Bradshaw proponent. I started attempting to learn the Match Up going on 6 years ago. I found the Sartin Methodology in the early 90s and it gave form and structure to my handicapping. But I...

Whoa

Where did that come from, Jeebs?


Those are serious questions. They are not judgmental or critical of anyone's methods.


Ask yourself! If you are satisfied with the answers then what are you...

Why?

Why would you ever consider a turf line in a sloppy or muddy race?
Why would you consider a horse that has never run on dirt, fast, sloppy or muddy as a win contender?

Match Up

I'm in my 6th year of Matching horses. I still only bet horses over 6/1 because it is a continual process of learning. Unless you are 100% committed to this work, don't start.

One Approach

Bill,

I have read all of FTL's posts, some multiple times. I have great respect for his work and the hours spent handicapping and posting his work and results. I could care less that much of it...

In my view

Bill,



Being a Bradshaw advocate my reading of the horse's pps is more specific. Looking at each race at today's track, whenever this horse has run against a sub 23 first fraction he cannot...

Much appreciated

I for one greatly appreciate the work and time invested by FTL in posting his research and methods. Whether races posted before or after they ran made no difference as he applied his criteria exactly...

Unfortunate

Money, wealth and intelligence don't necessarily go together. The winning of a Triple Crown should be celebrated and applauded by all rather than held up to ridicule in the Public eye. Baffert's...

Picking pacelines

In the last year I have changed the way I get to my paceline selection for each horse in the race. I still don't care where it is in the horse's pps. And I hope the majority of horseplayers continue...

Bill

How can the #5 be a contender if he can't get the lead? Year Segment screen suggests that he will be two lengths off at the 1st call. That would indicate that he will press. Has he ever won as a...

In the tandem 41 days ago the #3 is beaten by the #4 and #6. In a run race 20 days ago against much slower early fractions the #4 and #6 are beaten by the #8. Both races were run with a final...

Bill,
I realize that you are seriously ill and suffer from lack of energy and fatigue and I am very sorry that all this has befallen you. But it seems to me that your handicapping has gone straight...

3rd off a 200+ day layoff

edited by Bill V. If the 3rd race off a layoff is the "Money Run", then what are the 1st and 2nd races following the layoff? Not "Money Runs", get it?
Each horse is different as are their trainers....

While Richie is the master, I will put in my 2 cents. The only time you would question a line like this, is if he lost position and/or beaten lengths, 1c -2c which would indicate he can't handle the...

What is a Power LIne?

First define it! A POWER LINE is the best finish against the fastest early pace a horse has run against. Depending on the race today, that would be an up close finish against the fastest early pace...

I don't see it

Admittedly, I was primarily a West Coast handicapper until about 20 years ago and I have been at this game for over 50 years, I don't see what you are describing.

Turf course

If yesterday was any example, the two turf route races ran in around 1:14 2nd calls. That in my view is very slow. There can only be a few explanations such as the actual course itself or just slow...

Turf racing

To my knowledge Jim Bradshaw did not alter his approach from dirt to turf. As with any race he determined if a horse could go gate to wire. If he eliminated that possibility He sought "the horse...
