The SOA of New York and Yonkers Raceway are pleased to announce a new handicapping feature which will provide useful information for both casual and experienced bettors.
The Empire Report is a new feature available at www.yonkersraceway.com/cer. On the web site page that normally has daily entries and results for Yonkers, there is an additional box below which will contain pre-race analysis and post-race reviews every racing night.
The Empire Report is compiled by a team of handicappers that have followed Yonkers Raceway and harness racing overall for decades.
The goal is that the daily analysis will be used as a guide that can help players become familiar with horses and how races might be contested, rather than just telling someone which horse to bet. The rationale being you give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, you teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
It will help point out vulnerable favorites and live longshots which should prove to be very valuable for anybody looking to map out exotic wagers and multi-race bets
The in-depth post-race reviews are not currently offered by any other tracks. They will be helpful to handicappers - and owners - in providing much more information about how each race was contested and subtleties in each horse's performance that can't be gleaned just from looking at a results chart.
Combining the pre-race analysis with the post-race commentaries will hopefully allow players to continually sharpen their skills, and gradually do better and better at the windows.
Yonkers Raceway's five nights a week racing schedule continues with live racing on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:10pm. Beginning on November 9, six daytime Sunday cards will be offered at Yonkers Raceway to replace the Tuesday night cards as a simulcasting experiment that will send North American harness racing into Europe on a weekly basis for the first time.
