In the 2014 Kentucky Derby West Point stables COMMANDING CURVE left the starting Gate at 37 -1 I knew something big was Coming California Chrome the DERBY winner barely held off The Curve and if the race was a furlong longer Commanding Curve would have won the derby at 37 to 1 Odds cause he was surely running down chrome in the final run .
I Had curve CIRCLED and bet him to win place and tied him into all exactas despite the heavy favorite cal chrome I won a ton of Money with just him finishing second in both the exacta and trifecta and place bet AGAIN in the Kentucky derby in 1995 I Picked out Hall of Fame Trainer Wayne D lucas Horse THUNDER GULCH at 25 to 1 Odds and he WON the derby How did i find both of these Horses ? in the large fields Lucas had two horses in the derby a favorite and second horse Thundergulch with hall of fame jockey Gary Stevens on him I knew that this 35 to 1 was the horse I clearly wanted both these horses I got on Late the last week before the race and WON BIG how ? By watching RACE FILM of the DERBY prep Last Out RACES like Florida derby louisana derby it was the louisana Derby I spotted the Conditioning and closing ability of Commanding Curve I watched as went from almost the back of the pack and started picking off horses and moving up through the field quickly He stood out as being in top
closing Form same with thundergulch the Conditioning and Move in that derby prep race caught my eye
HOW TO USE the RACE FILMS as a HANDICAPING Tool
We are 60 DAYS from the DERBY and of course the fields are not totally known with the big prep races still are ahead of us the Last week before the MAY 4th DERBY look on the official DERBY website next to each horse will be FILM of his last race the DERBY PREP RACE take the time to watch the replays look for fast moving closers that STAND OUT I dont care what the odds are in the DERBY get that bet in GOOD LUCK
