In conjunction with the Academy of Lifelong Learning at Empire State College, we at Parting Glass Racing, will be hosting our Pre-Belmont Handicapping Extravaganza where we will have a panel of racing experts talk you through how to read the Daily Racing Form and give you an in depth analysis on their picks to win! This incredible event is free and open to the public, so feel free to bring some friends and what a night it will be! Not only will our experts be handicapping the Belmont Stakes, they will also be covering the five other Grade 1 stakes races!
Tom Amello, a Siena College graduate, began his thoroughbred education over 40 years ago. He learned the game from his father and uncle. Tom’s Saratoga selection sheet – Trackfacts, debuted at 1988 Spa meet, and continues to be made available at the Saratoga Race Course. Tom also created a newsletter, entitled (of course) Trackfacts! In April of 1992, production of a 30-minute television version of Trackfacts! debuted on the OTB network. Along the way, Tom developed a 2nd show for Capital OTB, Trackfacts – LIVE! Today, Trackfacts – LIVE airs every Sunday for 90 minutes, on the OTB television network.
Jeff Carle, retired jockey, began making guest appearances, on Capital OTB-TV, and was added to the lineup in 2008 as a co- host on ‘Call To the Post’. Subsequently, he produced and co- hosted ‘Racetrips’, and is currently a regular on ‘Handicapper’s Report’.
And our mystery guest, Trodder Furlong, who mesmerized all of our attendees at our Derby event!
