Trainer Joe Woodard has a number of strings around the country and online sports betting enthusiasts should pay attention to all of his stock if you are contemplating a wager in race he has entered.

The Kentucky native has trained runners for over 15 years. He started out small, like many, and deals mainly with claimers.

He has run strings at River Downs, Hoosier, Oaklawn, Prairie Meadows, Penn National, Tampa, Mountaineer, Ellis Park, Arlington, Churchill, Meadowlands and recently Turf Paradise.

Putting wins together for a conditioner is not always an easy thing to do but several years ago during the Churchill spring meet, he won with 10 consecutive runners he saddled.

Woodard has used some imaginative things to keep his horses going. He has been quoted as saying, “I use an oxygen therapy chamber on my horses that are undergoing a layoff but I’ve had a lot of success using cold salt hydrotherapy for my horses that’s are in training. It helps with practically all lower leg injuries.”

Just like in handicapping, trainers have to try to stay one step ahead of the curve.

Joe W. has some areas of training that he is adept at such as second off the claim runners. In the last 5 years he is 23% with that move but only 13% in the first start off a claim.

You have to think long and hard before backing Woodard’s horses when going against tougher competition. He rarely excels with high-class allowance runners or stakes performers but that is by no way a knock on his talent. It can be even tougher keeping cheaper horses on the track than just working with the cream of the crop.

Remember, the good horses, the stakes stars and the cheapest horses on the ground all have to eat, all have to drink their water and all have to be taken care of no matter how valuable they are on the track.

Betting sites players can expect good things when he takes the blinkers off, as he is 27% with that ploy in the last 5 years. When he gets horses good, they stay good as 28% of his winners repeat. He is even better when moving horses from Maiden Special land to maiden claimers to the tune of 30% in the last half of decade.

Woodard has been known over the years to succeed with turf to dirt horses. He is 24% with that type runner the last 5 seasons.

He doesn’t deal with young horses often but can hit with the rare debuting MSW runner but Woodard excels when he strikes when the sport betting iron is hot. He is 37% the last 5 years when bringing horses back within 7 days.

As a saddler of favorites, his 40% win stat is well above the national average but you can’t take you swings with him with price horses as he is just 5% the last 5 years with runner 10-1 or over.

On the other end of the spectrum if he runs back a beaten favorite, you have to stay away from those runners with a vengeance. He is 0 for 737 the past 5 years with beaten chalk.
