The third and final leg of the Triple Crown has often been the most difficult for the top three-year-olds. The most recent victim was Smarty Jones, who just failed in the final yards to hold off longshot Birdstone! There's a reason this leg is called the Test of Champions, and this year's running marks the 137th renewal of the 12 furlong race.

Log on to Thursday, June 9 for complete coverage of the Belmont Stakes. The New York track always features a fabulous undercard, offering several graded stakes that afternoon, so there will be many excellent wagering opportunities.

Now, it's time to get serious with superior information from

The Ultimate Past Performances

Every year it's the same questions concerning the Belmont: Who has the pedigree to run 12 furlongs? What runners have the most effective running style for the Belmont surface? Which horses can run to the Pace and Speed Pars? Only BRIS Ultimate PPs contain the answers to all these questions and much, much more. In addition to past performance lines, the Ultimates contain stats for the Jockey, Trainer, Sire & Dam, and more! PPs and all handicapping reports will be available Thursday, June 9.

Software Analysis handicapping software gives you the control you need with the speed you desire. Both ALL-Ways and MultiCAPS have done extremely well in the Triple Crown races over the past few years. Download any one of our elite handicapping packages from the FREE software page at

The Wizard's Home Track

People often wonder what differentiates the Wizard from other noted handicappers. Part of it is wagering strategy. This was illustrated best when the Wizard turned a 3-5 shot (Smarty Jones) into a 5-2 winner in the 2004 Preakness. By following his trifecta strategies, which contained six different trifecta partwheels, Wizard followers nailed the Preakness trifecta five times! A $127 outlay returned $443.00. Not bad for a $10 sheet.

What separates you from hitting a big exotic payoff in the Belmont? The Wizard's detailed Belmont Stakes analysis and expert wagering strategies are available Thursday, June 9.

For only $6, get the Wizard's Pick of the Day from Belmont Park or choose his full-card coverage of the entire Belmont card. This is the Wizard's home track and nobody covers this meet more closely than this professional handicapper. Both products are available by Friday, June 10.

5 FREE New ALL-Ways Data Files &
Archived Data Files in June

Wouldn't it be great if there was a computer handicapping program designed by handicappers for handicappers, a program you could use without being a computer expert?

Wouldn't it be great if I could spend maybe 10 minutes at the computer to handicap an entire race card? Then, I could spend only 20 or 30 minutes handicapping 2 or 3 race cards. That would let me be very selective with the races I play and still get lots of wagering action. Now, that is a blueprint for success!

Wouldn't it be great if the software could help me plan my wagers before I go to the track, like comparing the software's odds-line to the official Morning Line Odds so I can spot probable overlays? How about also helping me structure my Exotic wagers? And, what if the software could show me the kinds of races at each track that have the best payoffs for each kind of wager? Imagine being that well prepared before I even get to the track!

Wouldn't it be great if the software used a comprehensive approach to handicapping by determining each horse's suitability to the distance and the surface, current form, class level and ability to handle the probable pace and speed demands of the race? What if it included a lot of powerful handicapping factors that are not in the hands of the general public? Maybe it could even include handicapping factors designed by experts like Tom Brohamer based on the Sartin Methodology, Tom Hambleton, William Scott and Bill Quirin.

Wouldn't it be great if the software didn't use some fixed method to handicap the races, but instead was able to automatically adjust its handicapping for each specific kind of race run at each specific track I handicap? And, what if it would automatically take into account the prevailing track bias and the pace match-up scenario in the race? This means handicapping would be both race type and race track specific! Imagine software that understands the differences between 6, 6 1/2 and 7 furlongs.

Wouldn't it be great if the software not only did a great job of finding the winning horses, but was also able to spot the most likely place, show and 4th place horses as well, including pointing out the best Key-Horse candidates? This would really help me with my Exacta, Trifecta and Superfecta wagers. And, what if the software could look at the apparent non-contenders to see if there is a possibility one could "wake up" today and score at a big price, sort of a "Dangerous Non-Contender" report?

Wouldn't it be great if the software could actually handicap first time starters and integrate the results with all the other horses into the ALL-Ways odds-line? I really would like to hit some of those big payoffs that first timers generate when they do better than expected!

Wouldn't it be great if I had some control over the software and could apply some of my own handicapping ideas. I don't want a "black box". What I really want is a handicapping toolbox where I can select and use the tools that suit my interests and style of play.

Wouldn't it be great if I could easily handicap a race multiple times from completely different perspectives, sort of my own "Consensus Pick" capability? And, what if I could scratch and un-scratch horses by simply clicking buttons to see how the handicapping results change? Of course, I would want to be able to print the handicapping reports or to view all of this on my computer screen. Like I said, I want to be able to use the software the way that suits me best.

Wouldn't it be great if the software could show me the Impact Value power and the flat bet profitability of every handicapping factor for every different kind of race run at every track I handicap? How about showing me how well horses perform based on the size of their advantage for each key handicapping factor, a Gap Analysis sort of thing. And, what if the software would actually show me how well its handicapping profiles are working based on their win, place and show percentages, average mutuel payoffs and return-on-investment? Imagine software that is not afraid to show you how well it is working. Oh well, I can dream anyway.

As long as I am dreaming, wouldn't it be great if there was a way to search all race cards being run in North America to build a custom data file for the software made up of only the kinds of races I like to play at only the tracks I like to play? And, what if I could even specify the amount of early pace pressure in the races such as races with lone front runners and/or races with lots of early pace pressure that often set up for high priced closers? What a great tool this would be for playing simulcast races and for on-line account wagering ..... my own personal, custom race cards!

Wouldn't it be the greatest if the software was actually free? And, what if I could get some free data files to give the software a try and to build up a database for my favorite track?

ALL-WaysTM software has made all these great things come true. ALL-Ways is the software that Phillips Racing Newsletter called "absolutely the best free handicapping tool on the market!" And, during June 2005, you can build an ALL-Ways Race Database with approximately 250 races, absolutely free! Just download your 5 free new ALL-Ways regular data files and your 20 free ALL-Ways archived data files and XRD results files from the BRIS Archive File Server*. This is a minimum savings of at least $175. And remember, ALL-Ways data files can also be used to print the BRIS Ultimate PPs With Comments at no additional cost using PP Custom Generator Software!

* 20 Free Archive files and the corresponding XRD archive result files are available only from the Archive service located at

Identifying the "Quality" Early Speed
Tony Kelzenberg for the Handicapper's Edge

Do you have a definition for quality early speed? My definition would be a horse that can contend the early pace, then finish strongly. Just looking at the running lines can be misleading. Fortunately, a tool available with many of the BRIS handicapping materials can help us determine who'll hang tough, and who'll be fluff, down the lane. It's called BRIS LATE PACE.

My basic premise is that almost every speed horse can run a fast half-mile or six furlongs when asked. What we want to ascertain is what will happen AFTER the pace battle - which of the speed horses has the ability to "draw off" and get that big win for us. A lot of the time the quality speed will be apparent because of other factors (big speed figures, class edge, etc.) and will be really chalky. But sometimes the horse will jump out of the page to people who use the BRIS pace figures and you can get really nice odds. The 2005 Lexington Stakes was certainly one of those races.

Here were the main early pace players:

1) Actxecutive - Not really fast or classy, but he will be an early pace factor for as long he can last. Never run a late pace figure over 86. Toss.

2) Coin Silver - His running lines indicate a "need the lead type," but he is very lightly raced (4 starts) and owns 2 late pace figures of 102 or higher. His last "final speed" figure of 102 almost meets par, and his trainer, Todd Pletcher, wins a lot of these races (21% in graded stakes). 6/1 ML, 13/1 at post.

3) Going Wild - Got thoroughly 'spanked' by Bellamy Road two weeks ago (a 41-length defeat), and wheels right back for Lukas. Could very well be going backwards, and even if he isn't, he is only 4-1 despite never winning anywhere besides Santa Anita. We'll try to beat him in all the gimmicks.

4) Rockport Harbor - Has the media following because of his similar connections to Smarty Jones, but he is not the same level of talent as Smarty and everyone has heard about his physical problems. At 3/5 he appears to be a massive play against in the win hole. Since there are four speed horses lined up, no one figures to get an easy lead. But can any of these horses FINISH?









Coin Silver




Going Wild




Rockport Harbor




Note that Coin Silver has a significantly better late pace number and a very competitive speed number. He appears to be the "quality speed" in the Lexington. Often this combination is overbet, but we are getting 13/1 today. This is atypical, but don't be afraid to jump on this opportunity when it happens. The only question was if Coin Silver could pass horses, but his moderate E2 numbers would almost certainly put him in the second flight, and then you just have to hope he is a stakes-quality racehorse. He won like a champ, drawing off by 3 1/2 lengths and paying $28.80. I wish all double-digit horses were this easy!
