Recognizing where winners are coming from on the tracks that one plays is key for all online sport betting enthusiasts so let’s take a glance at was has been trending around the country in New York and Florida.
Let’s look at the frozen tundra of the inner strip at Aqueduct to kick it off.
As one would have expected, speed is always a key ingredient to success on the inner strip.
Players have to pay attention of the weather conditions to get an edge in New York. The crosswind on the backstretch can play havoc with some inexperienced runners and it is possible to come from left field on the inner if there is enough speed in the race.
The first week of the year, speed was vulnerable but don’t expect that trend to hold for too long. Another factor that comes into play is the post-position on this strip.

Drawing inside, including the first 5 posts going short, can be the difference between sportsbooks winning and losing.
As far as the human element, despite all the problems about licensing for Richard Dutrow Jr., he is still winning races in bunches in New York. A total of 15 of his first 46 starters won and 17 others ran in the money.

Value trainers at this point include David Jacobson, Chris Englehart and Gary Contessa, whose winners have all averaged double digits.

For those that follow the sunshine, Gulfstream offers some exclusive puzzles daily and it’s tough to decipher form since runners can come from Kentucky, Canada, New York, Jersey and across the pond to pit skills.

It has not been easy to carry speed on the local grass so there has been value with deep closers so far on the turf.
Inside slots going short have also been a challenge so far at Gulfstream. Posts from 5 through 9 have been preferred sprinting so far.

On the grass, being mired inside has not been the place to be so far this meet. Runners from the outside slots have generally been able to settle, get to the rail and save some sort of ground, then rally big time in the final furlong to pick up most of the cash.

There also have been some interesting jockey/trainer combinations this meet. For years John Velazquez was Todd Pletcher’s go to guy but early in the Gulfstream meet this season, J. J. Castellano has ridden more winners for this barn.
There have been three trainers, Kirk Ziadie, Pete Walder and Jane Cibelli, who have not sent out a lot of horses so far but the results have been excellent.

Combined, of their first 39 starters saddled, 13 came back to greet the cameraman for a snappy 33%.
Online betting players have to also look for value with trainers and that’s all about double-digit winners on the tote. Dale Romans first 4 winners of the meet averaged over $17, Eddie Plesa was averaging a solid 5-1 with his first 8 happy endings of the stand and Florida stalwart Marty Wolfson’s winners came back paying at least $12 so far.

For rider, players could do worse than give mounts by Joe Rocco and Fernando Jara and extra look on the way to the window.
