Talking Track: Betting the Odds

The Saratoga season is reaching it's peak.  We're into week five and have therefore begun the crescendo into two of the Spa's biggest stakes races, the Alabama and the Travers.  In anticipation of these two races, which I'm sure will be infinitely hard to handicap, I thought I'd bring you a little article on how to bet the odds.  This is Talking Track:  The Novice's Guide to the Saratoga Race Course.

Talking Track: The Whitney

Saturday's Saratoga racing card featured the 84th running of the Whitney Invitational.  This mile and an eighth race is probably the second biggest race (next to the Travers) Saratoga has to offer, though the Jim Dandy and the Alabama may have something to say about that.  Patrons of the ponies who made the trip up on this mildly moist Saturday were not disappointed in what was one of the hardest races I've ever had to handicap.  A race that would eventually be won by Tizway.
