all in Gambling

America’s Best Racing and handicapper (and avid gambler) Monique Vág team up to provide horseplayers with their best bets of the weekend in a regular feature blog that will run on Fridays.

For some posts, Vág will try to identify a longshot play of the weekend, a nice opportunity to swing for the fences on a win bet or to take a shot with a show bet. She also will look for strong exacta plays for the weekend or occasionally try to spot a nice opportunity for other wagers.

The Grade 1, $300,000 Gamely Stakes usually attracts some of the best female turf stars in North America and this year’s edition is no different, with four of the eight having made their last starts in other parts of the country.

Dan’s Double of the week, featuring handicapping analysis from America's Best Racing's New York correspondent Dan Tordjman, is brought to you by, the official online qualifying site of the Breeders' Cup Betting Challenge (BCBC) and National Horseplayers Championship (NHC).

A meteorologist will tell you it was fog that shrouded Pimlico Race Course last Saturday for the Preakness.

Handicappers would no doubt beg to disagree. To them, it had to be a cloud of chalk from all of the favorites who paraded to the winner’s circle on a day when week-long rain turned the main track into a sea of slop and the turf course into a boggy mess for the lone turf race.
