There's been some winning going on around here. First, if you aren't listening to The Player's Edge Podcast, or at least looking at the pick's summary, we feel bad for you. Not only are you missing out on great insights from incredible guests like jockey Trevor McCarthy @trevormmccarthy and Gulfstream Park announcer Pete Aiello @AnnouncerPete, you've missed out on some great picks. 

Last week, yours truly, smashed it at Gulfstream Park in our podcast competition picks for the Emerald Stakes in race 7 Saturday afternoon. Excuse me for a moment for a self-back-pat.  Here is my commentary and the suggested wagers.


This is a competitive race. Looking for an edge, I focused on horses for the course: #4 Temple (GP line 8: 4-2-2), #9 Muggsamatic (GP line 4: 2-2-0) and #10 High Noon Rider (GP line: 9: 5-1-1).


$3 exacta box 4,9,10
$2 trifecta 4,9,10/4,9/4,7,9,10

Make sure you catch this week's Podcast with special guest, jockey Tyler Conner @tyler_conner519. The crew will be talking racing under the Friday lights at Penn National, trying our best with our picks for races 5, 6, 7 and 8. Maybe, we can follow up last week with a Penn National, Pick 4 score!


Radar Horse Review:

Our Radar Horses have found their way into the winner's circle at a decent rate in December. Through the 8th, six of our 16 Radar horses hit the tape first, that's a 37.5% win rate.

LEVANTO got the Topaz month started off right, winning an Allowance Optional Claiming race at Mountaineer at 4-1, paying an even $10. The six-year-old broke third of seven, stayed there through the ½ mile marker before breaking away to win by 6 ½ lengths.

LEVANTO's  win was joined by winners' checks for:

KID D'ORO ($3.40) and FACTOR THIS IN ($3.60) at Parx on December 1st.

SO RED THE ROSE ($6.80) at Charles Town on December 2nd.

PAYDIEM ($4.60) at Remington Park on December 5th.

And DONT MAKE IT EASY ($5.20) in essentially a wire-to-wire win in Parx's sixth on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. 

A $2 bet to win on all of the 16, December Radar Horses generated a small profit of 5%. Not a lot, but any winning way at the track is a good, no make that great way! Our Radar Horses are a terrific resource to start building your tickets for the day.
