Dear ValueCapper and Friend,
The 2014 Preakness Stakes is this Saturday, and the racing world is abuzz about the Derby winner, California Chrome, and his chances for the first Triple Crown since 1978.
I’ve made a video for you about the Preakness, analyzing it with Black Magic: The Ultimate Handicapper Software.
Spoiler alert: California Chrome is right on the top of the odds line.
No surprise there.
Also, to those of you who follow my work, it will be no surprise that my bet in the Derby, General a Rod, shows up well on the line again.
There’s a late running colt that might find its way into the exotics at a big price if Pimlico is favoring the running style that won the last two Preakness Stakes.
The fact that there are only 3 colts-California Chrome, General a Rod, and Ride on Curlin-in the race from the Derby actually makes it an easier race to analyze than most Preakness Stakes.
Please remember to check out the undercards, not only at Pimlico, but at the other tracks running. There are usually some very big errors made by the ‘big day’ crowd that you can take advantage of.
As always, my sincere thanks to those of you who have written with kind words about the videos and Rants.
You can always write me at firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll be traveling and with the Preakness on Saturday, please be patient as I might not be able to get back to you immediately.
If you have a technical question, drop a line to email@example.com
Enjoy, be well, and let the bet make you!
All the best,
