July 12, 2011 -- The old racetrack adage from long ago says with a "filly or mare go to Delaware," and the connections of the best fillies in the country, arguably the two best horse in training in the nation, are heeding that wisdom as the pair prepares to meet for the sixth time at the site where the rivalry began a year ago. Havre de Grace, the current leading filly and mare in the nation, and Blind Luck, the 2010 3-year-old filly champion, are slated to meet again at Delaware Park in the Delaware Handicap. Havre de Grace, locally-owned by Richard Porter's Fox Hill Farm, and California invader Blind Luck, owned by Mark DeDomenico, John Carver, Peter Abruzzo and Jerry Hollendorfer, headline the 74th renewal of the $750,000 Grade II Delaware Handicap this Saturday.

June 13, 2011 -- When it comes to making money at horse betting, there are countless systems that gamblers try. You have some that focus on trainer-jockey combinations while others look at things like class, pace or speed. The problem with horse betting systems is that none of them will work all of the time.

It is called a horse betting rebate.
