I ended up betting $100 on Tiger at 11-1.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Scott Piercy have a good tournament. He's playing well this year, he's a good ball striker, and he's had a couple of top 10...

I misspoke. I totally forgot they played the US Open at Pebble one other time since Tiger's win. He came in 4th that year.

On a different note, Jason Day has lured Steve Williams out of retirement...

US Open

Who does everyone like? Koepka is obviously a strong contender, but I don't think he'll have nearly the edge at Pebble that he had at Bethpage. Pebble is not nearly as long. So I'm not going to pick...

Internet for "I was wrong about Sicilia Mike being on the rail for most of the race. But I still think I'm right."

I just watched the H Man race. I actually bet that race. My horse ran up the track. I bet $100 to win on Empire Line and $50 to place on him. I was looking for a price and I thought he was an...

I never really thought he had a chance when I saw the fractions. But when he was still in front at the 1/8th pole, I had a glimmer of hope for a second. Then I had some minor hope again that they...

I wasn't the one talking in circles. He was. He's the one who won't come out and clarify his position. My position is clear. My position is that the track super is the most important force when it...

Why would I possibly admit or think I am wrong when you have presented zero evidence to substantiate you rail bias claim?

Look at Strike Silver. He's not even a speed horse these days and he goes...

Was it a robbery? I think the article said he was sitting in a busy bar and someone shot him in the back. I guess it could have been a botched robbery.

I pray he has a full and speedy recovery. Why do they target these guys down there? I would have to think he's a national hero down there. Do they just target these guys out of jealousy? I don't...

The vast majority of speed horses go to the rail. That is all that matters. I'm not claiming 100% of them do. It doesn't have to be 100%. None of these things are 100%. Most speed horses (who get...

You're totally contradicting yourself. An inside bias will automatically create a speed bias. Any horse that gets a clear lead will be on the rail. A horse with a clear lead is not going to be out in...

A speed bias doesn't mean you can't close. It just means it's much tougher to close. If there is a suicidal pace, someone will probably close. That doesn't mean there's not a speed bias.

Yeah, you are right. It's just a coincidence that the track always seems to be lightening fast on these big days. I guess it just gets that way on its own.
