Get Paid for Playing The Races And Use Free Programs to Handicap

There’s a lot going on this Labor Day weekend at greyhound, thoroughbred and harness tracks. Dubuque Greyhound Track has the finals of its $55,000 Classic stakes on Saturday night. Orange Park has the first round of the $20,000 Sprint Classic Stakes on Friday night. And the final of the $20,000 Gallagher/Kinnaird Puppy Stakes will take place on Monday afternoon, Labor Day.

In harness racing, the Grand Circuit will see stakes races at Vernon, Tioga and Woodbine. Woodbine’s site has a ton of information and handicapping picks, and also free programs for their races. Check out the picks and info here, and the programs here. After all, why pay for a program if you don’t have to?

Still in Canada, but over at Woodbine Thoroughbred now, one of my readers asked me why I didn’t mention the free pp’s that Woodbine Thoroughbred offers, when I mentioned the free handicapping materials for Woodbine last week. Well, better late than never and here’s a link so you can download your weekend pp’s and get handicapping.

So, now that you have all this information and your free pp’s, where are you going to play the races, assuming you don’t live near Woodbine or the harness or greyhound tracks? Well, if you’d like to get 2% cash back on all your wagers and you spend at least $50 a week on wps bets, why  not sign up at the new ADW, Watch and Wager?

I did when I found out that they have a very generous sign-up offer. They’ll match your initial deposit, up to $300. Deposit $50, get $50. Deposit $100, get $100 and so on up to $300. The terms and conditions are all spelled out plainly on their site. I don’t know about you, but when someone offers me money for doing something I do online everyday anyway, I’m all over it.

A little tip for playing Woodbine thoroughbred. It’s a synthetic track, so look for young horses out of sires that love synthetic. Scatmandu, D’Wildcat, Speightstown (especially in stakes races), Niigon, It’s No Joke (super synthetic sire and good sire for first-time-starter winners too), Legal Jousting (an excellent Irish sire although his progeny might not be ready to win until they’re 3 or 4) and Hail The Ruckus.

It’s the end of summer, but it’s just the start of the Fall season for greyhounds, harness and thoroughbred racing.

Dogs To Watch, Woodbine Freebies and Free Yonkers Harness Handicapping Helper

This weekend, I intend to play all three of my favorite sports: greyhound racing, thoroughbreds and harness. I’ve had a busy week so I don’t have much time. This is when I’m glad that there are other people out there to help me with my handicapping. You might want to take a look too, if you’d like to play Wheeling, Woodbine or Yonkers – or all three – like I’ll be doing.

Read about some of the standouts at Wheeling Downs in Stan Pawloski’s column at the National Greyhound Review. If you don’t subscribe to the NGA, you might want to do that. It’s a good way to keep up with everything that’s going on in the world of greyhound racing.

If you’ve never played Woodbine, here’s a link to $400 worth of free handicapping materials from Jim Mazur, the man who knows more trainer angles than anyone I know. His daily trainer angle sheets have helped me cash some nice win and exotic tickets at the Canadian track. Look for Speightstown, Forestry and Marcavelly in the sire line at the synthetic track. Don’t miss the free Woodbine Handicapping Book and the free Blue Chip Trainer Angles book also.

Last but certainly not least, here’s a link to a new handicapping feature at Yonkers. Underneath their Entries and Results, they have a box with Race Reviews and Upcoming Analysis. Unlike most track’s picks, the race analysis will provide insight into how the race might play out as handicapped by a team of handicappers who have followed Yonkers for decades.

The post-race reviews, the only ones of their kind from a harness track site, will help handicappers see what happened in a race and should help them improve their handicapping skills going forward.

So, pick some winners at Wheeling and Woodbine and get some help with your handicapping at Yonkers – all for free.
