Welcome Friends to The Turk and Little Turk Blog, with a narrow focus on handicapping, primarily older turf runners, since 2008. In those years we have written over 680 blog posts and given bet suggestions on almost all of them. Our most recent handicap of the Pacific Classic gave a $2 Exacta Bet for $20 that returned $93.20. Past results are not an indication of future, but over a long period of time this blog has offered bet constructions and documented the success. While its terribly difficult to eek out positive ROI race after race, I have proven that focusing on a small group of races and really analyzing in depth can allow me to make good race track investments. My objectives: Relaxation, small profits and sharing my insights with my small but passionate reader base.
Kentucky Downs is one of my favorite tracks, and with the unsettled future of Arlington Race Track, is easily my favorite turf course in the United States. Tomorrow marks the first of six days of live racing of this boutique meet and I hope to play at least one race every day. Let's get after the Dueling Ground Derby $750K.
