Betting Horse Racing - Early Betfair Clues

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 11/13/2012 5:13:37 PM

Rome wasn’t built in a day and one can over react to just a few days of racing but let’s examine the first few days at Betfair at Hollywood Park to try to get a an edge for online sports betting players.

First let’s address the main Cushion track. The Cushion is a mixture of two grades of sand, synthetic fibers, elastic fiber and granulated rubber. The surface can get clumpy but horses seen to get fit when they train on this surface.

On opening day, the main track played a bit against speed. It was possible to settle and rally and win close decisions.

There were only two racings run on turf to kick off the meet. In the first even, the winner was close up the entire journey sitting about a length and a half off the lead before pulling away late to win by a diminishing two lengths.

In the finale and last turf race of the day, Kory Owens had the family product Luxuriance ready to roll at first asking in the 6-furlong race off a pretty quick work tab.

The runner broke slowly but Tyler Baze didn’t panic and let her settle. He sat nearly 6 lengths off the lead early but motored home late to draw off at a healthy 5-1.

Speed was mandatory the second day of the meeting on the main surface. You had to be close up in order to have a chance of winning. There were three grass races on the second horse betting day.

The 6-1 winner of the first event came from about 5 off the pace to cash. Distort This won the second grass event of the afternoon by sitting about 2 off the pace before getting up by a head at 7-1.

In the last grass race of the day the 8-5 chalk Candy Trophy got an ideal three-hole trip as she sat a little over a length off the lead before inching away late.

Three turf races were carded on the first Saturday and Julien Leparoux proved why he is so great on turf as he came from dead last aboard Porfido to win by a head on the third choice.

An optional claimer went wire-to-wire on grass in the next turf effort and in the third event of the day Doug O’Neill had his first timer Royal Barrister primed to roll as the settle a length and a half off the lead and then moved in time to win at 17-1. On the main surface, stalkers had their way the entire day.

On Sunday, the main track the surface played fair as runners could succeed on the pace or from far back. Maintaining contact on the turf on Sunday was the way to play it. You could not come from left field so in order to win runners had to be within striking distance from the get go.

The concept of watching races and evaluating where the winners are coming from is key for online bettors to succeed in the long haul. Pay attention, watch the betting site replays and make it pay.
