Preakness 2012: Six horses to watch – Page 2

Beyer doesn’t foresee the same result on Saturday. The Derby winner drew really well, also.”

Some horse racing handicappers, like the Washington Post’s Andrew Beyer, thought Bodemeister actually ran the better race at Churchill Downs despite coming in second. “Bodemeister wins the Preakness in a runaway,” he predicts.

Baffert was delighted to receive the No. 7 gate.. Mike Smith is back to ride, and look for the Hall of Fame jockey to put his colt in front right out of the No. It probably doesn’t hurt that his trainer, Bob Baffert, has won the Preakness five times in 11 tries. 7 post in the 11-horse field.

“With him, anything in the middle would be fine,” the Hall of Fame trainer said. “With the Preakness, you just don’t want to be stuck on the inside where you have to use your horse a little bit. The Preakness is a sixteenth-of-a-mile shorter, plus Bodemeister won’t be pressured early like he was in the Derby by Trinniberg and Hansen, who are not entered. Why? Because he’s fast, and the 1 1/4-mile Derby distance was just a little too far for him to carry all that speed.

“These bets are not about gambling, these wagers are more about a

business opportunity and ability to hedge and have the possibility of

making a substantial amount of money regardless of who wins the World

Series,” said Adam Meyer about the way a professional sports handicapper

treats his investments.

Two wagers that have garnered a lot of attention for Meyer over the past

year involved the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl win and Animal Kingdom’s

Kentucky Derby win. As the world markets

continue to become more unstable, many are looking toward sports

wagering as a safer way to find a return on a short term investment than

the stock markets. “Add the equation of the veterans in the

lineup and ace pitcher, Chris Carpenter, there was definitely value at

15-1 odds.”

. Meyer then placed a $25,000 wager on Animal Kingdom to

win the Kentucky Derby at 26-1 odds netting him over $500,000.

The Best Long Shot Bet in Horse Racing Handicapping

Since horses go in and out of form and also respond to training and equipment changes, any horse that once managed to do what is being asked of it today should be considered a threat especially when the favorite is vulnerable..

But when a longshot does win, somebody cashes tickets on that winner. So the real secret to making money on longshots is finding a person who can spot a good longshot bet in the racing form or program and then make money from the bet.

Next, look at each one of these racers and see if it has ever won at the distance, on the same surface, and at the same class level or higher. Now comes the tricky part. Now circle each horse that qualifies. The goal of playing the ponies is to make money, a profit. Do you ever wonder who had the horse and if it is all the people who just play their lucky number? Does it ever occur to you that someone actually looked at the racing program and picked that horse to win for a reason?

It is amazing how many times you will find a race where the favorite has not done what is being asked of it but another horse, going off at long odds, has done it. Handicapping horse races for profit and trying to make money betting on races is hard enough without going after those horses who seem so unlikely to win.

It does happen sometimes, but before you declare that person a genius, find out if he or she is ahead on his or her bets. Figure out why the horse you circled is now a long shot if it has indeed proven itself capable of winning a race such as today’s race. If you have the ability to watch the pools and spot inside money it is also helpful to know if the barn is betting that longshot.

Every day, at race tracks all over the world, people are surprised when horses win races even though the horse has done it before under the same conditions. This is the single most important clue to finding a good bet on a horse going off at long odds. Is it coming back from a long layoff? Does its form seem to have tapered off?

There is no one single formula for finding good long shot bets, but there are a few clues. Once you have identified horses that have proven they can win at the distance, surface, and level, find out if the horse who is the likely favorite in the race has done the same thing.

What you are trying to find out is if that horse can improve today and also if the favorite is a false favorite. Before the races, go through the racing form and find every horse that is in the morning line at 10-1 or higher.

While most people would agree, after a few trips to the horse races, that long shot bets are where the money is, however, after losing money trying to win a few, most will agree they are also difficult to hit
