If not, then you may be missing out on not only a steady stream of winners but also some fabulous payoffs. Why? Because the Ultimate PP's provide BRIS value-added data that the general public does not have when betting:

TRAINER STATS Specific by Horse -- catch 15-1 bombs like RISCAY, who surprised the public when stretched out in distance by her trainer. As the Ultimates show, the trainer was a 23% winner at a flat bet profit with such a maneuver, and he also switched riders to one he had won 55% of the time.

PEDIGREE AND SALES DATA -- with detailed sire, dam and sales stats you'll know when a runner like RISCAY is an expensive purchase (e.g. \$100,000) that should improve when stretched out in distance (e.g. AWD 7.3).


(to view the Ultimate examples, please print this newsletter)

TRACK BIAS & RACE SUMMARY -- offers a track profile both for the entire meet and the most recent week at the distance and surface of he race in question. The Race Summary sections provides a wealth of data and ranks the horses based on the highest average speed rating within one furlong of today's race. You'll be riding high when you hit \$60 winners like MOUNTAIN BIKE!

OTHER VALUE-ADDED STATS -- contained with in Ultimate PP's include Early and Late Pace Ratings, Pace and Speed Pars, Expanded Workout Lines and much more! So, don't delay. The PDF files will remain absolutely FREE through January 31, 1998.

WIZARD Reports ... Better Than Ever!

For the same low price, the WIZARD Selections and Analysis now include several new, invaluable features for the Aqueduct, Fair Grounds, Laurel and Gulfstream Park sheets.

Each report is custom tailored to the particular track. For example, the Aqueduct sheet includes a detailed day-by-day track bias analysis. Readers will know how and why horses have been winning, along with an emphasis on which paths were the place to be each day.

The Wizard takes this track report even one step further in his WEEKLY OBSERVATIONS, which profile horses that have been helped or hindered by the bias, or simply horses that should run much better in their next race. This section alone is worth many times the price of the sheet!

The FIRSTER REPORT offers an indepth look at each of the first time starters on the card, utilizing the value-added BRIS Pedigree and Trainer Stats as part of the analysis.

Also, the Gulfstream Park sheet, which began with opening day on January 3, provides a new, detailed listing of horses which have won over the Florida oval within the past few years.

So, now in addition to his winning selections and popular Crystal Ball analysis, Wizard followers will love the enhanced sheets which offer value-added information unavailable anywhere else. Download today and find out why the Wizard is America's number one public handicapper!

Thoroughbred Racing Selections

12/03-Rail: Inside-1; Sprints: Speed-1; Routes: Tactical Speed-1; As expected, the inside paths were the place to be on opening day. Speed was important in both sprint and route events, but more so going short. In the routes, off the pace horses seemed to have a chance due to the cuppy, tiring nature of the track surface.
12/04-Rail: Inside 3 paths; Sprints and Routes: Tactical Speed-1; The inner track was very similar today as it had been the day before, with the notation that as long as you were within the first three running lanes you were equally able to win. Wire to wire speed seemed a bit less necessary than

12/05-Rail: Inside 3 paths; Sprints and Routes: Tactical
Speed-1; Friday was a carbon copy of Thursday.
12/06-Rail: Inside-2; Sprints and Routes: Speed-3+; Normally, my bias scale runs from 1 to 3, with 1 being a mild bias and 3 being a severe bias. Saturday's inner track surface was one of the most biased New York tracks in months, if not years. Three bombers went gate to wire on the fence, upsetting logical horses like Capote Belle. I did not make the rail a "3" because one or two horses were able to tip off the rail and close ground in the two or three path. But be assured that any horse that raced any distance off the rail was severely compromised. Move up any animal trying to close, or stalking and/or closing in the 4 path or wider. Sincerely, a bias dominated racing card.
12/07-Rail: Inside 3 paths; Sprints and Routes: Tactical Speed-1; Overnight the inner track returned to the way it had played earlier in the week. Absolutely nothing like Saturday.


CHASIN WIMMIN (03DEC-5): sharp improvement chasing the pace after a tardy start. Bred to be a good one.
TRACK CITY LAD (03DEC-5): overcame a stumbing start to prevail in the faster paced of two maiden divisions.
BERMUDA CEDAR (04DEC-9): suffered a brutally impossible trip. Hit the rail on the first turn, checked several lengths on the backstretch, angled out wide, fanned wider, still didn't quit. A truly amazing trip.
DIPSTICK (04DEC-9): shuffled back twice in mid-race. Got bumped at the eighth pole.
SUPERSATURN (05DEC-5): victimized by an impossible post. This was the best horse in the race, but his effort was completely compromised by the post and his finish position should be discounted.
TO BE SURE (05DEC-5): Chavez did his best Mike Smith impression, taking this 2 YO so wide as to be nearly invisible.
RADIANT MEGAN (05DEC-6): either jockey Paula Keim-Bruno was given bad paddock instructions, or she needs a lession in how to ride the inner track.
ATOYAC (05DEC-9): blocked going into the turn, then clipped heels and nearly went down at the 3/16's pole.
CARTA DE AMOR (05DEC-9): lacks tactical speed, but she might have won anyway if not hung widest on both turns.
OUR NORTHERN BELLE (06DEC-2): showed a flash of early lick before she clipped heels and nearly went down. Might be sitting on a Moschera wake-up call.
JEZABEL (06DEC-3): pitched the jock prior to the start, then raced wide and very greenly. Bomb threat if she gets some seasoning.
AGGRESSOR (06DEC-4): wiped out at the gate when hammered between rivals. Impossibly wide and against the bias after that.
I'LL PLAY THESE (06DEC-5): finished with interest after breaking tardily and racing against the bias.
GOING GRAY (06DEC-6): stablemate of the winner finished wide and strongly against the bias. Likely to stretch out.
RED FLAG (06DEC-7): raced widest of all in the multi-horse stalkers pack.
CALL AGAIN (07DEC-2): raced wide and finished with interest in an event won by his stablemate.
CODE WORDS (07DEC-3): undoubtably best after getting pinched back severely at the gate. Very game debut.
FAST AND FORTUNATE (07DEC-3): sneaky big effort. Bomb threat stretching out to two turns.
OF ALL THE NERVE (07DEC-3): finished belatedly but well. Galloped out best. Pedigree says routes are in her future.
QUIDNASKRA (07DEC-3): took the money that her work tab indicated she deserved, then ran up the track. Don't overlook if she comes back with an equipment or medication change.
BIOGIO'S ROSE (07DEC-8): eliminated Friday morning when they drew posts. However, Maple should be ashamed of this ride as well. Hung out on the eight path on the backstretch.
MI SUK (07DEC-8): used as a pacemaker for her uncoupled entrymate. Watch for a return to claiming or allowance ranks.
NORTHVILLE (07DEC-8): hard used while wide trying to stay with the pace. Probably needs a class drop.
THUNDER MAGIC (07DEC-8): they tried rating her from a bad post. She middle moved well but wide and tired.
If you are new to THE WIZARD'S WEEKLY REPORT, the track bias/profile information presented above designates if any particular running style or part of the track was favored. The numerical ratings are as follows: 1-Mild Bias; 2-Biased; 3-Strong Bias.
