HEATING UP IN HOT SPRINGS

Posted by on 1/13/2014 8:10:11 PM

There is not just racing at the big venues of the country like California, New York and Kentucky but some very classy and fan friendly action takes place at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

When the fields are short on the inner strip at the Big A or at the extended meet at Santa Anita, online sports betting site players can gander at the spread-out fields at Oaklawn which started last Friday and will go to April 12.

To get an edge, let???s try to get a heads up on a few of the trainers at Oaklawn that are not named Steve Asmussen, D. Wayne Lukas or Kenny McPeek because in this game it???s not just about high profile but about doing what???s right for the runners.

Enter Steve Hobby, who learned at the feet of his dad Gerald, a trainer in Colorado. Last year Hobby won the 1,000 race of his career and he proved he knows what to do with a good horse as his student Tiz Miz Sue won the Grade 1 Ogden Phipps Handicap at Belmont.

Hobby excels in many facets of the game and in the last 5 years he has won with 17% of his starters. He is very good when he turns horses back to sprinting after a route. He won with 18% of those runners with a median price of over 4-1 and 53% ran in the money.

One of his best moves is when he tightens a horse up on turf and then enters in a dirt race. He is 8 for 32 or 25% with that ploy in the last 5 years and 11 others ran in the money.

Ron Moquett is an up and coming young trainer that must be watched. The Arkansas native used to skip classes at the University to sneak off to the races and that is where he developed the love for the game.

He learned under the very cagey Bernie Flint and moved his way up from hotwalker to foreman before going out on his own in 1996. He knows what it takes to get the most of his quality runners as his trainee Seek Gold shocked the field in the Grade 1 Stephen Foster a few seasons ago.

Be aware when Moquett tinkers with the blinkers. He is 19% the last 5 years when he switched to blinkers off with a median payoff of 5-1. When he brings horses back quickly, within a week, he has won with nearly 20% of his starters in the last several years.

On the other side of the ledger, if Moquett saddled a beaten favorite, stay away from that runner like he has rabies. In the last 5 years Moquett has saddled 149 beaten favorites and not one of them has reached the winner???s circle.

These are just 2 of the trainers at Oaklawn that can fly below the radar but they are not the only well-schooled teachers. Online sports betting site players should also pay strict attention to runners sent out by Chris Richard, Tim Richey, Joe Petalino and Allen Milligan.

Enjoy the days betting at Oaklawn and the nights partying.
