Juvenile Before And After: Tremont Preview and Maiden Winner Recaps

By Doug Salvatore The third race on Friday's card at Belmont Park is the 118th running of the Tremont Stakes. Tremont was one of the most remarkable two-year-olds in history. He finished his career a perfect 13-for-13 and did it by winning 13 different stakes races in a span of just 10 weeks, by an average margin of victory of nearly six lengths. Certainly this ranks as the most amazing ten-week long... Read More

Thursday babies with Dougie Sal: Churchill & Santa Anita

As a bettor, I very much enjoy early season two-year-old sprint races.

A Look At Winning Derby Pedigree With Brisnet.com & Doug Salvatore

Many skilled handicappers treat pedigree analysis as though it should be left for those whose primary aim is the buying, selling, or breeding of horses.

One hundred years ago, Roamer was the champion three-year-old and is credited with 1914 Horse of the Year recognition. He was sired by a "teaser stallion... Read More

Keeneland Sunday Pedigree Play From Brisnet.com & Doug Salvatore

Sunday's ninth race at Keeneland is a very exciting third-level allowance race for fillies and mares going a mile on the turf. The most intriguing horse in the race is the French invader Filimbi.

Pedigree Handicapping with Brisnet.com & Doug Salvatore: Friday, April 4, at Keeneland

RACE TWO (click race for PPs): Radiant (8-to-5 morning line) and Follow The Kitten (9-to-5) are expected to vie for favoritism. Both horses have obvious credentials and are dropping from the Maiden Special Weight level, where they have burnt a lot of money (no wins in five tries as the favorite between them, and neither has been worse than 5-to-1 in any of their combined 10 starts). There are two interesting... Read More
