Online Horse Racing Betting - 2013 Projections

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 12/26/2012 5:43:05 PM

For online sports betting players, and for all handicappers generally, horse racing is all about projections.

Who is likely to vie for the lead in any given race?

Who are the deep closers?

Which riders will send their mounts no matter what the circumstance?

And which trainers will either have their horses ready to roll at first asking, ready off an extended layoff, or more liable to give a horse time to race itself into winning form?

Let’s try to look into out Christmas crystal ball and try to project some of the runners that will thrive in the upcoming year.

A betting sites flashback can be something in which a memory is suddenly and unexpectedly re-visited or in a drama an interjected scene that takes the narrative back in time but for our purposes today, Flashback is one exciting horse that has just won his debut.

This son of Tapit, that cost $260,000, was bet like a good thing in his debut at even money and he just ran away from the field by 3 and a half-lengths with a 93 Beyer.

He had trained fast for his 7-furlong bow and won in a professional manner in a way that suggests he can improve going long. His final time of 1:23.09 was solid considering the on the dull side. An over $100,000 earning older horse, a couple of races early, was clocked the same distance in 1:23.92.

One of the best things about him is the breeding. The Bob Baffert trainee is a half brother to Zazu, who won multiple Grade 1s, banked nearly $700,000 taking 4 of a dozen and carried her speed a route of ground.

Baffert, who knows a thing or two about the Kentucky Derby, knows that keeping them healthy is mandatory and you don’t really know if you have a Derby horse until they stretch out but even the sometimes negative Baffert was impressed as he told ESPN: “this horse could be really special.”

They don’t call this game the ‘Sport of Kings’ for nothing and don’t be shocked if the 2011 Kentucky Derby winner, Animal Kingdom, continues to re-write the history book this upcoming season.

He has already proven to be versatile and considering the over 8-month layoff and the troubled trip in the Breeders’ Cup Mile, he ran huge to finish second to Horse of the Year candidate Wise Dan.

His trainer Graham Motion spots his runners cleverly year in and year out and he is one horse that may just keep on getting better. He's in Florida preparing for a return February 9 in the Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap.

From there, he'll be aimed at the Dubai World Cup in March, according to his trainer, Graham Motion. And no matter what happens in Dubia, look for Motion to give his runner time to recoup from that taxing Middle East trip.

Now let’s examine one of the leading young ladies in the country, Beholder.
Trainer by Hall of Famer Richard Mandella, this $180,000 purchase beat winners for the first time by recording a 108 Beyer and then parlayed that win into a victory in the BC Juvenile Fillies.

She has shown she can handle dirt and the synthetic and she has a right to have a solid career as kin to Into Mischief, who won the Grade 1 Cash Call Futurity and never ran worse than second.

Okay, on BC Day the surface played to her strength, and she cruised, but she ran nearly a full second (1:43.61) faster than Juvenile winner Shanghai Bobby, and the victory left her unbeaten on dirt, unbeaten too at Santa Anita. And in 2013 the Breeders' Cup will return to Santa Anita.

Watch for these horse betting names and for these stories to unfold with quality in 2013.
