Kentucky Derby 2017 Analysis

I love this time of year with all of the excitement of another Kentucky Derby. With another full field, there is bound to be a certain amount of racing luck, although recent Derbies have been quite formful, as California horses have dominated, winning the last 3 editions. It looks to me like the West Coast horses are not quite as […] Continue Reading

Circle Back Pattern and the Fastest Horse

One of my very favorite patterns is the Circle Back. In short, this pattern is one where a horse runs its Best, follows that Best with a Regression of one or more races, and then runs an improving race, although not as fast as its recent Best. This last race is what I call the turn-the-corner race. After the turn-the-corner […] Continue Reading
