Welcome, Thoroughbred racing fans! My name is John Gaver, the purveyor of Steam, a horse racing tip sheet that covers the Kentucky circuit from April through November, Gulfstream Park in South Florida from December through March, all Triple Crown races, and the Breeder’s Cup.
I have been giving away picks via my blog for the past year and a half, providing horse racing enthusiasts a concise analysis of the day’s program in an easy to understand format.
In 2017, I touted 333 winners from 1,309 races on the Kentucky circuit, encompassing Keeneland, Churchill Downs, Ellis Park, and Kentucky Downs, for a cumulative 25 percent strike rate. My top selections finished in the money 60 percent of the time last year.
At the recently concluded 2017-18 Gulfstream Park Championship Meet, I doped out 272 winners from 924 races for a 29 percent win clip; top selections finished in the money 64 percent of the time.
Available for $4, Steam will not only provide full-card, annotated selections, but also will include the value-enhanced content Live Longshots, a Best Bet for the program, and a multi-race exotic ticket recommendation. Additionally, I’ll be giving out a FREE spotlight play of the day.
Handicapping horse races is a labor-intensive task that I find both enjoyable, challenging and, at times, very profitable. For a minimal risk versus reward investment, I’ll take the guesswork out of dissecting a race card and give you a clear picture of how the day will unfold so you can enjoy an engaged, profitable racetrack experience.
