#TheAction: Betting on Speed


Speed horses can make you happy and they can drive you nuts. You know what you’re going to get… if the horse breaks cleanly, he or she will be on or near the lead. But when do you bet on speed to hold up and win? Ideally, when they’re the only speed horse in the race. Without any pressure from other horses, a speed horse is more likely to secure and MAINTAIN their advantage throughout. On STATS Race Lens, there’s an EARLY SPEED, THEN TIRED angle you can use to track speed horses. Take a closer look at the horse… if their previous race saw them tire under pressure from other speed horses… and they’re now in a race where they might be the lone speed… you might have something there. Other times to bet on SPEED… next week on The Action.
