Derby Spotlight: Tax

By Justin Dew | April 30, 2019

Brought to you by BetPTC.com, the only ADW offering instant cash back. What’s the deal with former claimers this year? Maximum Security debuted for $16k.

Derby Spotlight: Cutting Humor

By Justin Dew | April 30, 2019

Brought to you by BetPTC.com, the only ADW offering instant cash back. I’m going to keep this one very short. If Cutting Humor wins the Kentucky Derby, I will seriously consider forgetting everything I know about handicapping. I can name at least 12 horses that I think are more likely to win. Maybe 15. That’s…

By Justin Dew | April 29, 2019

Brought to you by BetPTC.com, the only ADW offering instant cash back. It’s disgusting how loaded Bob Baffert is this year. Truly obscene.

Derby Spotlight: Roadster

By Justin Dew | April 27, 2019

Brought to you by BetPTC.com, the only ADW offering instant cash back. I was at Del Mar the day Roadster made his career debut. The word was out. Bob Baffert had already said publicly that this guy was his “next Justify”. So the debut win was not a surprise. It is also not surprising that…

Derby Spotlight: Tacitus

By Justin Dew | April 26, 2019

Brought to you by BetPTC.com, the only ADW offering instant cash back. The fact that Bill Mott saw for it enter this guy in the Tampa Bay Derby off a four- month layoff speaks volumes about the confidence he has in this son of Grade I winner Close Hatches. The fact that Tacitus won that…

LONESPEED HORSE

LoneSpeed Fan Post

By Nick Quadrato | April 26, 2019

Brought to you by BetPTC.com, the only ADW offering instant cash back. It’s hard to imagine a Kentucky Derby with Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert bringing out three live horses from his arsenal and leaving without the win. Insert Omaha Beach, my undisputed Derby horse.

By Justin Dew | April 24, 2019

Brought to you by BetPTC.com, the only ADW offering instant cash back. The results of the four grass races to start his career are a clear indicator that War of Will has talent. His first three dirt races, all of which were wins, showed he was a serious contender for the Kentucky Derby. But what…

Derby Spotlight: Win Win Win

By Justin Dew | April 23, 2019

Brought to you by BetPTC.com, the only ADW offering instant cash back. I have no issue with playing a horse in a route whose best races have come sprinting.
