Well, you are in luck. In 2021, LoneSpeed will be [checks approved legal wording] one of perhaps multiple unofficial bottled water sponsors…

Revisiting the February 7th Issue

By Justin Dew | March 31, 2020

We’ve discussed this before here on LoneSpeed. But it’s worth another look based on recent events. While competing on Day 1 of this year’s NHC on February 7th, I noticed that a number of my contest selections at Gulfstream Park were getting beaten by horses that spent most or all of their time down on…

What a difference a year makes

By Justin Dew | March 25, 2020

Breaking News: Horse Racing Journalism Doesn’t Exist

By Justin Dew | March 3, 2020

Everyone hates bad-beat stories because we all have our own and we’ve heard yours before. Whether you’re betting through the windows or playing in contests, every sob story is pretty much the same. “I needed the 6 for my Pick 4 and he got an awful ride.” Or, “I was gonna use the 7 in…

Gulfstream Park Wednesday Play of the Day

By Justin Dew | February 26, 2020

Race 2: #6 Took a Cab First, a quick word about yesterday’s Play of the Day. For the most part, we were right. Golden Loch ran huge at 13-1 in Fair Grounds’ 4th. I don’t know if she could have beaten the winner, but without the traffic issues in mid-stretch, she would have been much…
