About Jockey Club

Who is Jockey Club?

The Jockey Club is operated by two passionate horse racing bettors, Robert Criscola and Dustin Korth. They eat, sleep, and breathe horse racing and are dedicated to their craft.

In addition to releasing free picks and premium packs, they also publish weekly articles around horse racing handicapping practices, weekend event previews, and hot vs cold stats/trends. Be sure to check out their ‘Race of the Day’ podcast every Thursday to Sunday.

What tracks do they bet on?

Jockey Club focuses on the prominent North America tracks, featuring Gulfstream Park, Oaklawn Park, Tampa Bay Downs, San Anita, and more.

What are their handicapping systems/methods?

Making money on horse racing can be difficult, but the Jockey Club strives to make it easier. The Jockey Club’s team of handicappers have many years of combined experience and are always on the lookout for an edge when playing the races. We combine traditional speed and class handicapping along with form cycle analysis in order to discover potential winners who may elude the public eye and go off at overlaid prices. Our experts also weigh surface and distance changes along with hot and cold streaks for jockeys and trainers when handicapping the races. The Jockey Club can give you the edge you need for a winning day, month or year at the races!

What is their strategy for pick rating and bankroll management?

As a reminder, horse racing is a long-term game. The most common bankroll management mistake is to increase your bet size before you are ready. This can happen whether you are pressing your luck on a hot streak or chasing your losses on a cold streak. The key to success is to select an appropriate unit for your bankroll and stick with it to see a flat positive return on investment over time. As example, selecting $10 as your unit and using the star ratings, your typical wager would be $50 to WIN on 5-star plays. A good guideline is to set your typical wager at 2% of your bankroll (win betting, exotics excluded). Therefore, a $2500 starting bankroll is recommended for a typical $50 bettor ($10 unit).

8-9* Reserved for our strongest plays and best bets of the month.

6-7* Stronger angles for runners that present value at shorter odds.

4-5* Typical wager size you will use most consistently.

2-3* Live longshots where we are looking to score bigger off smaller investments.

Notice you will not see 10* plays. This stands as an important reminder there are no sure things in racing. Keeping a winning attitude and staying disciplined to bet for value over the long run ensures the best chance for success and ultimately, most enjoyable time watching the ponies run!
