RTSS False-Favorite Report, Friday, February 16, 2024

RTSS caught a $29 winner last week to assist in our quest for profitability. Today, it’s claiming races at Fair Grounds and Gulfstream.

RTSS False Favorite Report, Friday, February 9, 2024

A really good week two weeks ago got buried by a bad RTSS week last week. The Super Scout needs to start digging out of the 2024 hole it’s in. The biggest blunder last week occurred on Saturday in the Swale Stakes at GulfstreamPark. We listed Frankie’s Empire (30-1 morning line) as the second-best horse […]

FAIR GROUNDS RACE 7. Allowance N1x. 5.5 Furlongs. Turf (Analysis for turf only).False Favorite: #4 Son of a Birch (7-2).Reason: With three consecutive losses at this level,  he’s a shaky favorite. Thomas Morley keeps moving this runner down the class ladder, and he probably needs to descend at least one more rung. BETS #7 True […]

Our superb November/December streak has turned as cold as the weather in January.We have slightly more than 11 months to get back in the black.FAIR GROUNDSRACE 1. Claiming $5,000 N2L. 1 […]

RTSS FF REPORT, Saturday, January 20, 2024

FAIR GROUNDSRACE 2. State-Bred Maiden Special Weights. 6 Furlongs. DirtFalse Favorite: #10 Wish Carefully (3-1).Reason: Despite posting back-to-back placings since joining the state-bred ranks, his speed figure and final furlong weakened in his second attempt. In neither race did he threaten the winner. He has yet to show much turn of foot early or late […]

RTSS False-Favorite Report, Friday, January 19, 2024

Last weekend, for the first time in a very long time, RTSS reports were wrong about false favorites more than they were right. FFs beat us in four of six races covered.Despite that major fail, RTSS pulled out two winners in six races. Both winners stood as solo bets because they went off at odds […]

RTSS False-Favorite Report, Saturday, January 6, 2024

We began the year half right, with all three false favorites we identified on Friday going down to defeat. Our suggested two-horse wagers, though, yielded no winners. One winner emerged from our handy “Top Relevant BRIS Speed Figs” list, paying $24 to win. Let’s see if we can revive the positive cash-flow half of our […]
