Little Current 1971 - 2001
The oldest winner of a Triple Crown race passed away on Sunday after
complications of colic. Read about his history, the campaign to get
him in the Hall of Fame, and how you can participate.


Review: Handicapping Contest Handbook
A Horseplayer's Guide to Handicapping Tournaments by Noel Michaels.
Essential resouce for anyone planning to enter a handicapping contest.

post position, etc.

Valentine's Day Postcards

2003 Triple Crown Trail
The full list of major preps leading to the Triple Crown updated with
the latest results each week.  The serious preps have begun, so keep
up with the weekly action.

Toccet doubtful for Derby
JACQUIMUSIC writes, "This is such a shame; I really liked this boy's
chances, but if he's hurt, there's nothing we can do. I thought that
this belief that west-coast tracks are hard on a horse's legs was a
myth, or a widely used excuse by trainers. I guess it's not, since
Toccet is tough as nails."

How do you handicap?
EXODUS3977 writes, "I thought it would be interesting to see how other
people break down a race. Overall, I treat every race as a unique puzzle.
Fast-paced races, average-paced races, slow-paced races... For me, there is no
factor as critical as pace. Trainer and jockey matter little to me, unless
both halves of the equation are utterly terrible. So, what works for you?"


Television Schedule

Stakes Race Schedule
