Horseplayers Association of North America

All memebers of this blog may I recommend you and all your horseplaying freiends join the Horseplayers Association of North America at :

A noble cause.  The website can explain it better than I.  But we are all betting on Tuesday's pick three at Tampa Bay Downs starting on the 6th race April 6,2009.  There is strength in numbers things need to change,  after all if we don't bet on the races there will be no races.  It is free to join while donations are appreciated.  I have been donating to the greedy track owners for years it's time to make our voice heard.


THANKS TO McKinney!!!

Mckinney thanks for BIACHAMPION.  Without your heads up in May I would have never even looked at this race.  I hope you made a nice score even though the favorite ran second.



BIACHAMPION is running Thursday

"my first horse to watch is Biachampion. He was well backed in the 4th race for $5K claimers. He lagged behind and came into the stretch looking like a threat. He got shut off just after turning for home, ruining any chance for him to make his run. He kept on well once he got clear, checking in fifth and he should be a huge factor next time he goes, and the price may be favorable. Keep an eye out for him".

Wel some may have missed that nugget of information due to something called the Kentucky Derby that day. Biachampion is running in the 6th race #5 on Thursday 5-29-08.  6-1 on the morning line. Just a heads up if Mckinney has additional info or opinion on this please post.



I'm a rookie blogger

I have been playing the horses since 1967 when I split show bets at Delaware Park with a friend and got hooked that summer.  I have never really bogged before just ran my big mouth to my degenerate friends for years.  I want to tell Octave that I have enjoyed his writing on the other site for a long time and I am glad I found him on this new site. Does anyone else like Visionaire in the Derby this year or am I crazy.  When he won his initial race of the year at Gulfstream it was visually exiting and then his next race at FG was disappointing.  When he emerged from the fog at Aqueduct in his next start and won by a nose I was hooked.
