Top European runners are showcased and eight run in the FanDuel Mile. Race Insights: The winner over the past six editions leading into the race run at Santa Anita had gone off at odds of or less. Race Insights: European shippers just dominate this race, and closers seem to be preferred.
There have been four female horses win this race, and the edition has four fillies or mares entered. No 3-year-old has won this race since The traditional Win, Place and Show bets all have higher payouts due to larger field sizes. Some of the exotic wagers are offered with a minimum wager amount of.
The more horses and combinations used in placing an exotic bet the greater the cost of the wager. The amount a person wins depends on how much money is in the pool overall divided by how many bets are placed. The odds on the horses change as the money is bet right up to post time. Beyond the win, place, show bets and popular exacta, trifecta and superfecta wagers, there is also Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5 and Pick 6 pools. Full fields up to 14 horses provides the opportunity for more winners at bigger prices and odds.
Regular race fans can dream of a big score with less risk when wagering on the expanded Pick 5s or the exacta, trifecta, superfecta or Pick 6. Biases — A track bias will be updated as more information from Keeneland Race Course becomes available. Date: Friday and Saturday, Nov. I bet a little, because I wanted to have a little party in case she won. I had to party for two months to spend it all. Cigar had won 11 straight races, nine that year, but never had run on an off track.
Bailey won his third straight Classic that day. They drew up a map, and gave it to Stevens, who followed it to the pot of gold in the Mile. There was way too much attention paid to Ricks Natural Star, a hopeless longshot who was entered in the Turf after a cross-continent van journey and morning preparation that included pony rides for desiring journalists. It was a circus. To me, it was borderline abuse to run him, but he had received so much notoriety that he went off at just Fortunately, his rider, Lisa McFarland, had the good sense to get him out of the way when he stopped, averting any potential disaster.
He was like a child to the Hines. He was the first 2-year-old to be named Horse of the Year since Secretariat in Owing to tendon problems, Da Hoss did not race for nearly two years after his win in the Mile, and if it had been up to Dickinson, he would have come into the Mile at Churchill Downs without a prep.
But Dickinson feared that if the Mile had more than the maximum 14 runners, the selection committee would not put him in the body of the race without a suitable prep, so he tuned up in an allowance at Colonial Downs, which he won. The European invader Swain appeared headed to victory, but he badly drifted to the right.
Silver Charm, desirous of a fight to bring out his best, was tipped toward him. That left a gaping hole for Awesome Again, who stormed down the center of the track to win. William T. Young called together five of his advisers at Overbrook Farm to discuss whether to run Cat Thief in the Classic.
None wanted to run. Young and trainer D. Wayne Lukas did. Cat Thief then went out and scored a upset. Behind the scenes, Dickinson suspected a couple of rival trainers of cheating, and hired private investigators to follow the vans bringing their Classic runners to Gulfstream. He initially denied it, but later admitted he was behind it. Runners now have to be on the grounds days in advance, and are better monitored. There were two significant developments this year, both of which helped spur handle.
The Filly and Mare Turf was added to the lineup, with Soaring Softly winning, and coupled entries were at long last eliminated. In the Mile, War Chant unleashed a breathtaking rally, covering his final quarter-mile in about There were still wisps of smoke emanating from where the Twin Towers stood, just 22 miles from Belmont Park.
Emotions were raw, and security was tight, with sharpshooters poised along the roof of the track. She eventually was freed, but days later, she had to be euthanized. It was an anxious afternoon, but it ended with a spectacular Classic, in which Tiznow held off Sahkee to become the first two-time winner of the Classic. While doing a handicapping show for television two days before the race, I picked Domedriver in the Mile. The thought was that while Rock of Gibraltar was indeed a more accomplished horse, his wide post, and having to negotiate two turns at Arlington Park, did not justify his prohibitive price.
Domedriver won, at , and Rock of Gibraltar had a horrid trip when finishing second. Walking out of the track that night, Dick Jerardi and I remarked how suspicious it was that so many tickets had the pick six that day after Volponi won at But little did we know what was to unfold in the days ahead, when it was discovered that three fraternity brothers had bypassed tote company security and altered a pick six ticket. The heat was on at Santa Anita. His victory with Halfbridled in the Juvenile Fillies was especially satisfying, for it capped a remarkable comeback from retirement by her Hall of Fame rider, Julie Krone, who had spent the year showing Californians what all the fuss had been about when she rode back East.
Ghostzapper blew them off the track at Lone Star, scoring a three-length victory to secure Horse of the Year. Rick Dutrow Jr. He got the very best out of that horse, who was plagued with brittle, shelly feet. It was no matter. Dutrow also won the Sprint earlier in the day with Silver Train. It was a treat to see her, and so, too, over the years her rider that day, Frankie Dettori, who also won the Turf with Red Rocks. Monmouth Park is one of my favorite tracks, but torrential rain prevented the track from being displayed in its proper glory.
Ginger Punch won the Distaff and, with it, the Eclipse Award as champion older female, but Frankel, her trainer, remained in California, tending to a gravely ill dog. He could come off brusque and off-putting, but Frankel truly had a deep, caring heart for animals and his closest friends. The 3-year-old class of this year was the best in years, and they swept five of the first six spots in the Classic, with Curlin a runaway winner over Hard Spun, with Street Sense fourth.
This was one of the more memorable editions for singularly brilliant performances, most notably Ventura in the Filly and Mare Sprint, Goldikova in the Mile, and Midnight Lute in the Sprint. There was much more to come.
Shirreffs, watching the race at ground level about yards from the finish, was only yards away from me when the race was run, and he had a rapturous look on his face when the race ended. Zenyatta came back for an encore, in a race run under the lights, which only added to the suspense, but there was to be no fairytale ending. She was defeated for the only time in her career by a thoroughly worthy winner, Blame, in the Classic. Zenyatta rightly received a heartfelt ovation when coming back to be unsaddled.
Smith, her rider, was disconsolate, blaming himself for the loss, but I think all that takes away from Blame, who was a terrific racehorse and, though he won the older male championship, did not get the acclaim he deserved. There was a lot of drama packed into those two days. Mott was in a great mood all week, at dinner, at his barn at Churchill Downs.
As in poker, the tells were there. It was the Irish equivalent of a father playing catch with his son, only writ large. Groupie Doll could not have been more dominating in the Filly and Mare Sprint, and Wise Dan put himself in position to be named Horse of the Year by winning the Mile over an unlucky Animal Kingdom, who had subtly significant trouble midway through the race.
Although the races were run at Santa Anita, there was no home-court advantage, with only two of the 15 winners having made their last start in California. Ian Wilkes showed he had learned his lessons well from the master, his mentor Carl Nafzger, by training Fort Larned to be at his best in the Classic following a subpar final prep.
Like the final football game of the season, it has come a long ways from its inception. It truly is the Super Bowl of horse racing.

Jockey Tom Eaves. I was very fortunate to pick up more points in July online. By this point with both of us having won tournaments and having other points, we were in the top 15 and the Tour grabbed us. The year for me did not start with the goal of chasing the Tour but it grabbed me about July — really tight.
It was never a situation that one of us was trying to beat the other. We were working hard at that point to try to get one of us to the top and hopefully the other in the top five. HP: I think you both knew it would be a major challenge to finish in the top five on the Tour. Just how difficult was it? Bryan — It was extremely difficult and we did not know until the last tournament of December that we both made it.
Judy — In September I moved into fourth or fifth place and Bryan was in top He had a good finish at Fairplex, moved into the top five, and knocked me down a few spots. Within two weeks I had two good point finishes at Fairplex and moved into first. Shortly there after, someone else moved into first.
The scores were so tight it was obvious the Tour was going to be tight to the end as the scores were so close and numerous players were within striking distance. After Bryan had a first place finish, and I had a second in the TwinSpires. We really felt we had to be aggressive at this point to try to get the results we wanted. We made plans to play in two tournaments in December we had never participated in — Keeneland and Turfway.
We both did not do well. We faced a very difficult decision about going to Surfside, leaving family on Christmas night. California is his home turf and he is such a strong handicapper, that we felt we had to go to fight for both of us to try to stay in the top five. I was barely hanging on to 5 th position.
The racing Gods smiled on us and our family forgave us for leaving children and grandchildren at 8 pm Christmas night. Bryan finished second at Surfside sealing his first place position. I was lucky and finished third. This gave me the points to move from 5 th into a tie with Steve for second. We were fortunate as there were several very good handicappers that could have won or moved up.
We just hung on for our handicapping lives. Yes, I would say it was difficult, but the pressure was worse. You each have different approaches to handicapping. Can you go into detail how you dissect a race. I will also search for one of only a few horses that can go a particularly long distance. If race is a mandatory race, I just handicap race and look for best value and how the price of the horse affects my standings in the contest.
Judy — First thing I look for is to see if a runner has been the distance and condition. If not, I look at pedigree for distance and surface. My favorite races are those that are first time starters and first time on turf. I also look at trouble first trips. I feel young runners can change very quickly with even one start. Some are quick studies with one time in paddock and starting gate. Some trainers are anxious to get horses to the starting gate and their stats show that runners may not be ready.
Others will not send a runner to a race until they are sure they can handle race. These stats are very important in my analysis of race. My favorite races to handicap are those with first turf starts and first time starters. I especially like to follow young sires. The lower profile sires with high percentage success is an angle I search for. Also, the trainer stats for this type runner is very important.
Although some of the top trainers do not push their first time runners and I shy away from their runners. A great example was Saturday, day two, of the NHC. The runner won at over This was a very much under-the-radar trainer. Bryan — This depends on how many tracks are in a contest. I will use HTR for workouts and quick stat summaries.
In contests with several tracks, I also use Thorograph Sheets for a more comprehensive view of race. This also allows for a quick look at many aspects of race in a shorter period of time. Frankly, I am dissatisfied with my ability to consistently get the results I need and I am going to dedicate this year in deciding on a lone handicapping methodology. I use this as my racing program. On it, I note runners, trainers or jockeys that have outstanding stats.
It gives me the red flags that tell me whether or not to pay attention to a particular runner. From this I go to HTR and review their stats and especially workout ratings for first time starters and first turfers.
I also keep notes during the year on young sires and what their runners have done. The past workouts have really played an important part in my handicapping. I watch for layoffs and how a trainer brings runners back after layoffs. I immediately note jockey changes in the materials I use. I still have a racing form to refer to as this was my initial tool when I started my handicapping journey.
I really like to compare the various information that is available. This is especially important for new sires. I never handicap without my Sire Stats book from BRIS that has several years of notes that are transferred every year. HP: Do you feel there are some handicapping factors that are over-weighted, as well as factors that not emphasized enough by the wagering public? Bryan : I think that workouts are often overlooked by the public. However, at major tracks the workouts can be overbet due to the presence of more clockers and dissemination of information.
In some states, the state-bred runners are equivalent to anywhere in the country; whereas in other states, they can be vastly inferior. Judy: I think for the average player that does not really dissect the race, certain trainers and jockeys are overbet. Oftentimes, these are horses with lesser known connections. As I like to bet first time starters, there are several well known, very successful trainers that do not push their horse first time out, and I think this is something that is overlooked numerous times by the public.
Sometimes, articles and information often put out by women are not given the same type of respect as information put out by men. For example, I love the work that Lauren Stich has done in regards to pedigree information. Bryan : I like to make exacta wagers, as well as the Pick My favorite wager of all is when there is a carryover pool on the last day of a meet where there is a mandatory payout.
Judy: As far as contests go, I like win and place wagers. In terms of betting, I prefer the dime superfecta wager, especially in a full field of maidens or two year olds. How much added pressure did that put on you, and is there anything you feel that you would have done differently? I would say that the favorite in a tournament like that should probably between 80 and Thirdly, I prefer tournaments that only have a few tracks versus a lot of tracks like the NHC. With those factors in mind, I did not feel a lot of pressure.
But I sure did enjoy the experience and being the Tour Champ. People were very gracious. HP: Judy, I believe, this was the third time you have cashed in the National Handicapping Championship [and fourth time finishing in the top 30]. Do you approach that tournament any differently than a contest during the year, and what do you feel has been the secret of your success at the NHC? Judy: Just the common sense things. I try to go out a couple days early and be well rested. I spend a lot more time dissecting the types of races I like there, than I do at other contests during the year.
I download the reports from Brisnet early in the week, and then later in the week, use some of my other tools. I keep all my notes on my form at the NHC. I will put them in my stable email. Secondly, BRIS reports come out with some of the information earlier than other sources. I try to get a jump on the races that way. Judy: The tracks that you assume will be used in the tournament are the ones I will watch.
I am not very good with pace handicapping, but the BRIS Ultimate Past Performances will give me details on the track biases that I can note, as well as the pace ratings for each runner. HP: Since you are already qualified for the NHC thanks to your top five finishes, to what extent will you go after the tour this year? What advice would give to players participating in the tour? Bryan : I definitely plan on participating in a few tournaments this year, just because they are fun to play in.
It will be great to play in a contest where there is very little pressure. If one of us happens to win a couple of tournaments in a row, then obviously it would change our plans concerning the Tour. Judy: I have not made a firm decision on the Tour this year. There was a lot of stress going after the Tour last year! I still have my household responsibilities, so going after the Tour the same way is a tough decision. Now, if early in the year, I win a tournament again and find myself on top of the Leaderboard, it is possible I will chase the Tour the same way.
Regardless, I will certainly participate in the Tour to some extent. My only advice would be that if enjoy tournament play or just handicapping in general, then you should definitely give the Tour a try. You do need to have a real competitive spirit if you are serious about doing well on the Tour. How has owning racehorses influenced your handicapping? Bryan : This gives me great insight into why a horse might be placed in a race. In some cases they may not have been able to find a proper race so they are giving the horse a start.
Sometimes you will see a horse, particularly a filly or mare, run in a stakes race in a short field just to get black type a top three finish for their pedigree page which enhances the breeding value. For the modest cost of getting into a partnership, I recommend every horseplayer, who can, to become an owner at least one time. When owning horses, however, you know the importance of proper training. You tend to investigate trainers to know more about their ethics, their philosophy, etc.
You tend to understand trainer patterns, such as why they may have a certain jockey on a horse.
Now, if early in the leaders on the overall year-end again and find myself on the year for horseplayers and is possible I will chase will automatically qualify into the.
