4 Race Form Cycle

I track the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th race after a Layoff, Claim, Debut and Won last Race. Every bet I make is from these 4 races. The last bet I made with speed was in 1992.

When a trainer lays a horse off and returns him to the track, most want to schedule races every 14 to 21 days.  A 4 race cycle takes around 2 to 3 months when things are going good.

There are 86 entries on Saturday at Aqueduct.

  1. I got home early from the otb. aqu race 9. I actually bet the 1 horse in that race. If i am correct he also has an exacta hit rate of 45%, 46 in claiming races and 54% at aqu. ML 6-1– i took a shot. woo hoo for me–maybe i am getting the hang of this. It’s a 12 horse field and not yet confident enough to do the all out trifecta thing so just did the win/place thing. Irregardless, the stat thing eliminates quite a bit of the subjective thinking. That has to be a good thing.

    1. That is a really good key horse. 1st or 2nd he’s a 45% hit rate and what made me select this was Claim 1 Route Rodriguez stat is 3 of his go-to jockey’s Irad Ortiz, Jose Ortiz and Javier Castellano are not at Aqueduct. And Rodriguez put Junior Alvarado on and their numbers at Aqu in Route Races is 32-26-50% in the Exacta. So he’s a go-to jockey also just maybe not as known as the other three.

  2. Superb form cycle handicapping today at Aqueduct. Hope you were able to hit on Race 8 with the longshot winner by avoiding the underlay 4/5 favorite. Congratulations.

    1. I didn’t have anything that I was comfortable with in the 8th race so I passed. But I’m glad you noticed that I was trying to warn people on a favorite that looked really weak. He dropped 6 odds levels from his morning line. I knew he was going to be so overbet that it would be difficult to find value in the race because of an overbet favorite.
