Each week we take a look at the horses ON OUR RADAR which we have dubbed "Radar Horses" and how they fared over the last week, good or bad. It's time for our update for December 9th through December 15th.

BAYTOWN GLORY got things off to a hot start last week for our Radar Horses. He rallied to win Penn National's third race on Wednesday, December 9th and paid $10.80 for the win. Horseplayers that put him on the top of the ticket with the next three favorites hit the exacta, trifecta and superfecta. 

The $2 exacta paid $44.00.

The $2 trifecta paid $146.00.

The $2 superfecta paid $293.00. 

BAYTOWN GLORY was one of three Radar Horses winners out of a dozen in the last week and just missed on two that came home in second. 

CHIEF EXCHANGER and INDIAN H WHO joined BAYTOWN GLORY in the winners' circle at Parx and Zia Park on the 14th. The public was in agreement with Horse Racing Radar as they paid $4.00 and $4.20, respectively. 

Overall, eight of the 12 Radar Horses finished in the money (66%). It could have been a little better as FRAN'S WORRIER was on the lead in the stretch but faded to fourth in the final strides in a 7 furlong start at Parx. You might want to keep an eye out for his next race, especially if it's 6 furlongs or shorter. 

Two-dollars across the board (to win-place-and-show) on each of the Radar Horses paid $64.40, a small loss of $7.60 from the $72 wagered. Show and place wagering was close to breakeven with $2 on all horses to place paid $22.40 and $23.00 to show. 

While the payouts aren't going to put many gifts under the Christmas tree, it keeps horseplayers in the game and the high in the money rate allows you to pair Radar Horses up with your picks and maybe hit some exactas and trifectas. 

Staying in the game is key and looks like it could be a big week for Radar Horses as nine are already on the docket between now and next Tuesday.

Best of luck and you'll also find that Guaranteed Tip Sheet uses our Radar Horses with their picks to put together some great exacta and trifecta recommendations on their tipsheets.

Until next week... stay safe.
