About / FAQ


My name is Mark J, and I was born and raised in upstate New York, just 45 minutes from Saratoga Race track, a track that has earned the nickname “The Mecca of Horse Racing.” When I was just 16-years-old, I began following horse racing and quickly became engrossed in the sport. I studied the ins and outs of the game, and I would read the racing form every day and go to race tracks all over the country to meet with owners, trainers, and jockeys.

While I love all thoroughbred racing, I discovered my true talent was analyzing turf racing. I will bring you up to date information from behind the scenes, and I will not flood you with confusing information.

This will be the number one site in the world for thoroughbred racing. With 44 years of experience and an undying passion, I believe I can give you the best information for which you are looking.

We will specialize in the following:

  • Jockey Trainer Angles
  • Hot Owners
  • Hot Barns
  • Horses that have been in previous trouble or good positions in previous races
  • Speed Ratings
  • Inside information from all major race tracks
  • Turf Races nationwide

We will key in on our favorite tracks from New York, Kentucky, Florida, California, and Illinois. These are the strong tracks that we have many contacts. We want to show a profit from Monday to Sunday at the end of the week that’s where the profit will be. It’s not a sprint, its a marathon. Anybody can win big or lose big on any given day!
