Mind Your Biscuits- The Final Analysis

Until I watched the replay of the Lukas Classic, I had no intention at all of using Mind Your Biscuits prominently in my Breeders’ Cup Classic wagering.  But now, it’s a virtual certainty that he’ll be a big part of my plays. Make no mistake.  The breeding isn’t there for 10 furlongs with Mind Your…

West Coast- The Final Analysis

When we last discussed West Coast here on LoneSpeed, I expressed my opinion that West Coast has a hard time gaining ground on and passing elite horses late in races.  Yes, he has passed horses before and won.  No doubt.  But if you go back and look at his three starts prior to the Awesome…

Steve’s Interesting Horses

When LoneSpeed first went live just two short months ago, the initial plan was for this website to feature a number of “smart horse racing minds”, as I said in the introduction video many of you have watched.  I wanted to have four or five regular contributors.  Well, when I realized how few people were…

Coolmore Has Done This Before. Watch Out!!!

In 2015, Coolmore won the Breeders’ Cup Turf at a racetrack in Kentucky by defeating that year’s Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe winner with a 3yo filly by Galileo who finished 9th in the Arc and then came back two weeks later to run a really good race at Ascot before getting on the plane…
