You think you know horse racing? Plenty of people pick up the Daily Racing Form, do their homework and win a race or two. Or they play the amazing Horse Racing Fantasy Game (that brought you here today) and have beaten their friends to a pulp every time, on every track with every available horse.
But what’s missing, and you won’t find anywhere else but in this space, is how to look at horse racing from a jockey’s perspective. We look at each race in a much different way than even the most experienced and dedicated fan of the game. (We have to! we're the ones going at breakneck speed on that big, unstoppable machine!) In the coming days, I’m going to share some information and jockey-style insight that you’ll find fascinating – plus gives you the edge in this game and the world of real horse betting.
I’m going to tell you why the first 30 yards of a race are more important that the last 30, why positioning is so crucial to where a horse finishes, how much track conditions really matter to the horse and jockey, and much more. My blog is going to be all about making you a smarter fan and hopefully, a much more successful player.
