BRIS Has What You Need!

Rely on BLOODSTOCK RESEARCH this summer as your source for winners at both Del Mar and Saratoga. There's no sense at even attempting to attack these cards unless you're armed with the value-added BRIS data and a working knowledge of both tracks.

Crush 'em this summer with the Ultimate Past Performances, the absolute best handicapping tool on the market today! Looking to save time? Take advantage of Insider Picks & Power Plays, a selection sheet like none other ever developed.

First, here's a few tidbits of track bias information for playing both tracks. Then, we'll look at the reports offered by BRIS that will give you an edge at the windows.

DEL MAR (July 22 - September 9, dark Tuesdays) Dirt sprints of six furlongs or longer consistently favor runners breaking from middle or outside post positions. Surprisingly, for a Southern California racetrack the wire-to-wire win rate is below average in dirt sprints. Early/Pressers, or runners who do not have to be on the lead but possess early foot, have had the preferred running style at the most commonly run distance of 6 furlongs for the past three years.

On the grass 1 1/8 miles has been the best bet for a wire-to-wire turf winner. Early types breaking from an inside posts are the most dangerous runners at this distance. Frontrunners can win in the shorter turf events at one mile or 1 1/16 miles but with less frequently. Especially in these races, handicappers are advised to consult our Late Pace Ratings to determine which runners have the best closing kick on the grass.

SARATOGA (July 29 - September 7, dark Tuesdays)

Although the track can temporarily change over the course of a few days, there are predominant track biases that handicappers can count on at Saratoga. Dirt sprints, especially 5 1/2 and 6 furlong events, favor early speed types as well as middle and outside post positions. BRIS Pace Ratings, found in all of our online past performances, are essential for analyzing the runners with the best early zip.

Routes are two-turn races at the Spa, and the best bets are on early types with inside posts. The rail, or one hole, is often the best post each year at 1 1/8 miles.

There's a difference between the two turf courses. The inner turf with its tighter turns gives a built-in advantage to runners with early foot and inside posts. The inside posts (one through three) are also preferred on the main turf course, where Pressers (mid pack runenrs) fare best.



This unique selection sheet doubles as a handicapping tool. Why? Insider Picks & Power Plays does more than just give winning selections. The report does the work for the handicapper by identifying important angles such as:
