Keeneland To Provide Special Handicapping Insight, Benefit Aftercare On Meet’s Final Days

Keeneland is presenting @BetKeeneland on Twitter during the Spring Meet to provide horseplayers with real-time handicapping tips and insights while benefiting the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) through its Handicapper of the Day Series.

The @BetKeeneland handle is providing horseplayers with on-demand wagering content including live reports and updates lasting 60-90 seconds approximately 10 minutes prior to each race from Jeremy Plonk of the fan education website Horseplayernow.com along with scratches, changes, clockers reports and other wagering-related information.

In addition, nationally recognized handicappers are sharing their daily picks and recommended wagers with a $200 bankroll they will play each race day to benefit the TAA, which accredits, inspects and awards grants to approved aftercare organizations to retire, retrain and rehome Thoroughbreds.

Handicappers participating this week are:

  • Samantha Siegel (April 26), whose Jay Em Ess Stable campaigned such top horses as champion Declan's Moon. During Keeneland's 2017 Fall Meet, Siegel won $4,050.80 in the Handicapper of the Day series that benefited the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund.
  • Paul Matties Jr. (April 27), a professional gambler and horse owner from Ballston Spa, New York. He won the 2017 National Handicapping Championship and its $800,000 first prize while outdueling, among others, his brother Duke, who finished fourth.
  • Michael Beychok (April 28), who won the 2012 National Handicapping Championship and its record prize of $1 million, and soon after claimed the filly, Glorious Dancer, who won him the contest. The political consultant from Louisiana created Thetournamentedge.net for contest players.
