Might it be a Godolphin/Godolphin late Double at Keeneland?

By Justin Dew | October 4, 2019

Only one of the 11 juvenile fillies entered in today’s Grade I Alcibiades at a distance of 1 1/16th miles over the Keeneland dirt has ever been two turns. And guess what. She’s done it twice. Godolphin’s Micheline for Michael Stidham comes off a win at Monmouth in the Sorority at a mile on the…

Of course Mongolian Groom won. Of course he did.

By Justin Dew | September 29, 2019

First, a quick personal note. LoneSpeed is not yet what I had hoped it would be. To this day, it is essentially nothing more than a personal blog. My hope is that it will eventually become a place where racing fans and bettors can come to be informed and entertained. For most of the last…

Might Limari Offer Value?

By Justin Dew | August 31, 2019

In the 7th race at Kentucky Downs on Saturday, Brad Cox’s Limari figures to enter the gate as the favorite, and given the composition of the field, the 5/2 morning line looks about right. A review of the replays of Limari’s last two races shows that she encountered significant trouble at the start in both,…

Well, Wow Cat sucked

By Justin Dew | August 25, 2019

Losing money at the track, while occasionally fun, is never a good thing. Losing money on a horse that you touted not just on your own website, but on Horse Racing Nation, is also not desirable. But do you wanna know what’s even worse? I’m gonna tell ya. What’s even worse is when a “featured…

LoneSpeed Play of the Day

By Justin Dew | August 25, 2019

Saratoga Race 10- #9 Lady Trish’s Dream Usually, when a horse ran 9th of 11 and 11th of 12 in his or her two most recent starts, I’ll make one courtesy attempt to find an excuse before moving on to another competitor. However, in the case of Lady Trish’s Dream in the 10th race at…

Should we even try to beat Shancelot?

By Justin Dew | August 24, 2019

If Beyer Speed Figures are your thing, and if you believe that Shancelot should have things his own way up front early in the Allen Jerkens today at Saratoga, then you probably feel he’s an obvious single in all of your multi-race plays. However, if you think that there is no way Irad Ortiz aboard…

Don’t Dismiss This Travers Bomb

By Justin Dew | August 23, 2019

It would not shock me if any of the 12 entrants in this year’s Travers Stakes hit the wire first. If you’re playing the multi-race bets, using the ALL button probably isn’t insane. No, I don’t give Everfast much of a shot (watch him win), but since he did manage to run 2nd in the…

It’s Time for Wow Cat

By Justin Dew | August 22, 2019

Betting on horses requires you to have opinions. Some opinions are going to be stronger than others, and some bets will be larger than others. Occasionally, an opinion will be a negative one about a favorite. Other times, the opinion will be a positive one about a non-favorite. Every so often, a race will feature…

By Justin Dew | June 5, 2019

For starters, you need to make every effort possible to maximize your wagering dollar through rebates. If you are wagering without a…

The DQ

By Justin Dew | May 6, 2019

Brought to you by BetPTC.com, the only ADW offering instant cash back. Before we begin discussing the disqualification of Maximum Security and the promotion of Country House to 1st place in the Kentucky Derby, some full disclosure for proper context is in order. I was wrong about several key horses in the race.  I didn’t…
