Archie Watson 2yos Start Season in Flying Form


Archie Watson doesn't let the grass grow under his feet. The Upper Lambourn trainer has made a name for himself at Saxon Stables, throwing aside his rookie status in 2016 with a number of talented horses, especially two-year-olds which he has done particularly well. Many winning on debut.

This new Flat season has started in a similar vein with four [...]

Gay Kelleway – Training Racehorses in France!


Horse trainers. It all seems so easy when you are at the top of the tree. Messrs Gosden, Charlton & their ilk don't have to worry about money (they do but not like some). 

That brings us to prize money in the UK. We are talking about horse racing prize money. The numbers don't make very good reading. In fact, [...]

All Work and no Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy

 

A quote from Stephen King's The Shining (1980). A great film with an excellent cast. Directed by Stanley Kubrick  I know some of you wordsmiths are thinking: ''Stephen King didn't coin the phrase.'' It is a proverb which goes back to 1659. And means (surprise surprise) without time off work, a person becomes both bored and boring.

Getting ready [...]

Great Yarmouth Horse Racing Membership 2019


I love having a day's racing at Great Yarmouth. 

I've been going since a child when my parents stayed at the Haven holiday park at Caister-on-sea. Lots of good times, making sandcastles, playing the one-armed bandits and going to the races with my Dad (Colin). We always visit the course for the Eastern Festival which covers three days in the [...]

Trainer Quotes Vs Group Horse Daily


It seems the world and his wife want that little bit more insider horse racing news. It seems that many punters are willing to pay for 'info' about what a given horse trainer thinks about their horse(s).

Trainer Quotes is one of a few platforms with connections to stable. I'm pretty sure another known website is called From The Stables. [...]

If Jesus Had Been a Professional Gambler…


It's interesting how we view one another. How we make judgements. Jesus couldn't preach to those he knew because his words were not taken seriously. The people thought they knew him better than he knew himself. 

As time proved - the son of God was everything and more. His proclamations were true. 

In many respects, as a gambler people are [...]

Betting: Are You Struggling With My Stereotype?


I guess we all love to chat about subjects we know. I could listen to anyone talk about anything if they do so with passion. A glint in the eye, and confident discourse. 

One thing you should never do in life is limit others by your own perception of them. Humans are good at what psychologists call fundamental attribution error. [...]

What’s Your Favourite Grand National Winner?


Who doesn't love the Grand National? The greatest steeplechase in the world. It's a race that captures the imagination of young and old. 

Remember the time...

The great thing about the Grand National is that we all have a story to tell. Even if it was your Grandad reminiscing about the day he saw Red Rum walking around the paddock, [...]

Betting Success: From Failure & Patience


You don't simply wake up one morning from a good night's sleep and find you are an expert in XYZ. 

Sure, you see it in all the sci-fi films. It may well be the case (one day) that you can buy a magic pill which not only helps you lose weight but an upsell means within 24-hours flat you can [...]

So Factual Wins Nunthorpe Stakes Group 1


Foaled on March 4, 1990, So Factual was sired by Known Fact, who was awarded the 2,000 Guineas in 1980 on the disqualification of Nureyev, but was primarily an influence for speed in his progeny. Bred, and originally owned, by Prince Khalid Abdullah, founder of Juddmonte Farms and trained, initially, by Guy Harwood at Coombelands Racing Stables in Pulborough, West Sussex, [...]

Mutlibet Strategy: Yankee, Canadian, Super Heinz….


Multibets. 

What do you think of them? For many punters, they are the worst bet ever created. Certainly, bookmakers love them. Why? Because most people lose unendingly. They bet, they lose. Money in the till. A joke bet!

It's pretty obvious finding two, three, four, five or more winners isn't easy. In fact, it's bloody difficult. But the positive side [...]

Saturday Tipping Competition: Bloody Good Winner!


I'm not sure if you have a competitive nature or not? 

I know I have a competitive nature. Not to the point of being selfish or stubborn but have confidence in my abilities. We all have strength and weakness. So why not revel or appreciate your ability. People do as they do. However, I don't think someone being outspoken of their [...]

10 Secrets How To Beat The Bookmakers


I know so many people think it is impossible to beat the bookmakers. 

It's not easy, but it is very possible. Remember, that betting on the horses is skill based. It isn't like fixed odds, where the longer you play the more you lose. In the world of skills - the more you know, the more you win. 

Use these 10 [...]

Japanese Pinball Industry Makes More Money Than Las Vegas


Think of gambling and Las Vegas comes to mind. Surely, it's the biggest gambling industry/location in the world? Well, you'd think so, hey. However, the Japanese gambling industry has a thriving business of its own but this time it's pinball machines. 

It's estimated that one in eleven people play pachinko palours once a week. 

Japanese gamblers spend £152 billion on these [...]

Thin-Slicing Your Bets


I don't always get time to read a book. 

A good muse, interesting prose. I studied psychology at The Open University. I'm the male equivalent to Willy Russell's Educating Rita. I do love that film. Identity. The transforming of one's identity. To become your ideal self. Self-image. And often, finding that you didn't want or need it at all. Because [...]

Emotion – The Gambler’s Enemy


Betting. 

What's it all about? Perhaps, more importantly, how does it make you feel? I guess so many people consider emotions the gambler's worst enemy because it makes them act irrationally. 

My good friend Eric Winner loves his unique speed ratings because they are objective and he doesn't have to think between the lines. Although, that doesn't stop him from thinking about [...]

A Bitter Pill To Swallow


When you look at horse trainers at the top of their game it seems so easy. The likes of John Gosden, Sir Michael Stoute and Roger Varian. 

None of these trainers has to delve to the bottom of the barrel. It is a luxury few will ever understand. I remember a few years back Olly Stevens kind of detailing how [...]

Are Horse Trainers Creatures Of Habit?


I'm pretty sure you're thinking we don't need a blog post to know the answer to that. 

You may be right. 

There is little doubt that most trainers follow set patterns, especially with their best prospects. We've all seen two-year-olds following the exact path.

At the end of every Flat turf season, I run a study on every two-year-old horse [...]
