Jerardi: Pennsylvania tracks hit the nail on the head with event days

Whenever anybody asks me about the state of horse racing, I tell them it is an event-driven sport without enough “events.” Whatever happens on the other 364 days, the Kentucky Derby remains incredibly popular. In fact, you could make a numbers-based argument that it may be more popular than it has ever been. I think that is also true of the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes when a Triple Crown is on the line.

Jerardi: A closer inspection of Pennsylvania Derby Day bias

As the Sept. 20 Pennsylvania Derby Day card was playing out, just about everybody was talking about the track bias that appeared to favor horses running on the rail. In the immediate aftermath, I was less sure there was a bias than most and decided to give it some time and then take a critical look at the data.

From Brisnet

Noted marathoner Ever Rider (Rider Stripes) and Grade 3 veteran Easter Gift (Hard Spun) are among a field of nine entered in Tuesday's $75,000 Auld Lang Syne S. at Parx Racing. Winner of the Temperence Hill Invitational at Belmont and runner-up in the Greenwood Cup (G3) at Parx Racing, Ever Rider cuts back to one mile and 70 yards here after finishing fifth in the 1 1/4-mile Hawthorne Gold Cup (G2). An allowance winner at Belmont two back, Easter Gift exits a fifth in the Clark H. (G1) at Churchill Downs last month. The field also includes recent Swatara S. runner-up and third-placer Adirondack King (Lawyer Ron) and Yougotthagoinforu (Student Council), and the Grade 2-placed sophomore Classic Giacnroll (Giacomo). Later, Grade 3-placed Tenango (Lion Heart) and multiple allowance winner Bama Bound (Rock Hard Ten) will be among the favorites in the $75,000 Valley Forge S. over seven furlongs.
