3) Placed 4th in the 2004 Bradley Teletheatre and $5,000.
| Started Playing:
||As a teenager, I used to go to the Belmont Stakes every year with my Friend and his father. The excitement and pageantry of this event got me hooked on thoroughbred racing. Also, I am told, that my Grandfather Max was a horseplayer, so I guess I had it in my blood. I started to handicap and play regularly around 1982. |
| Handicapping Mentor(s):
||I have read all the books available on handicapping and have tried to take something useful from each of them. I have tried to develop my own style of handicapping by keeping my own charts and drawing on my own knowledge, experience and analytical skills to identify overlooked or undervalued wagering opportunities. |
| Handicapping Style:
||I try to look at all the factors, class, pace, current form, speed, success over the track, surface and distance, etc. to some extent. Depending on the conditions, I might place more emphasis on certain factors than others in a particular race. Where a horse has a significant edge in one of these categories over the others in a race, that is usually significant to me. |
