Details

For those of you who do not recognize the name, Andy Beyer is one of the greatest minds in the thoroughbred racing industry. While attending Harvard in the 1960s, he decided to pursue his passion -- beating the horse races. Over the past four decades, his research and insights have revolutionized and legitimized the industry. Using his math skills, Mr. Beyer created a new way to rate the speed of a horse in a race which became known as the "Beyer Figures". Andy has been on our show a few years ago and we are happy to have him back to discuss the evolution of the Beyer Speed figures and give us his insight into this year's 3-year-old crop. With all the top racing in New York this week-end, we are bringing in New York-based handicapper Mike Beer to break down the $500,000 Gr. 3 Gotham Stakes; the $200,000 Gr. 3 Tom Fool Handicap and the $200,000 Gr.2 Top Flight from Aqueduct. We will also look at the $150,000 Gr. 3 Swale Stakes at Gulfstream Park.
