Ron Flatter on horse racing

Thoroughbred owner and handicapper Marshall Gramm talks about the edges he has gained as a computer bettor. Las Vegas oddsmaker Paul Zilm handicaps weekend races. LISTEN HERE.
  • It was like the first day back at school at Churchill Downs, where racing resumed Thursday. It is also where the first points prep for the 2022 Kentucky Derby – the Iroquois Stakes – will be run Saturday night. Since the race has never produced a Derby winner, it becomes an even better bet when horseplayers handicap it on its own merits. On that score, it may come as a surprise to learn who among trainers has dominated the Iroquois in recent years. CONTINUE READING.
