||WinningPonies.com gives you the edge you need to win. We do all the legwork and analysis for you and provide you with our ranked selections along with key factors highlighted. In addition, we provide substantial resources on successful ways to bet with our picks. At WinningPonies.com, we don't like to tell people exactly what to bet because everyone's preferences are different. We want our members to learn along the way in addition to winning.
||They tell you exactly what to bet. You won't learn anything except that it's easy to spend other people's money. There's nothing wrong with spending $144 on a $1 Trifecta partial with a 3-5 key.
||We handicap all the major (and some minor) flats tracks in the United States and Canada. If it's flats and you can bet on it, we probably handicap it. Furthermore, our picks are of the same quality across all the tracks we analyze. Yes, our guys are THAT good. Typically, on the slowest days (Monday and Tuesday) we offer up to 10-15 tracks. On the weekends, we may have up to 45 tracks available! How do we do it? We don't know either!
||They only handicap a few major tracks. They probably only handicap Thoroughbred racing and don't even try to touch Quarter Horse or Arabian races.
|Fairly Good Day at the Track
||A few 3 figure trifectas on one card. They would have cost between $12-$40 to bet.
||Best bet of the day at 2-5 wins. Gave you a chalk Pick-3. Cost $72 to bet, paid $36.40.
|Pricing Structure of Selections
||Using our unique WinningCredit-based system, you purchase credits which can be redeemed anytime to purchase our forms. In this way, you only get one transaction on your credit card statement (for the credit purchase). The E-Z Win™ Form for a track simply costs 1 WinningCredit per race (e.g. a 10 race card is 10 credits). Credits are currently $1 each; a 10 race card will cost you $10. Also, did we mention we prorate the pricing of our forms? If it's late in the day and there are only 2 races left on a 9 race card, only pay 2 credits! Furthermore, we offer volume discounts on WinningCredits to our members.
||Anywhere from $10-$25 per track, based on the handicapper. Prorating? You have to be kidding me.
|Viewable Past Selections
||Check our past results at any track for any date for the past year. You just need to create an account (no billing information required). We include the results on the past E-Z Win™ Forms so you can cross-reference easily.
||They will hand pick a few past tip sheets to show you. They will be several weeks old. Oh you want to see results too? Go find them somewhere else.
|Track Selection Page
||Use the WinningPonies.com Toteboard! We display all the available tracks sorted by time of the next race. We also display the upcoming race number at each track (based on published post times) and the prorated cost of the form at each track in WinningCredits. Check off one or more tracks and purchase them! In addition, a results link for each track is available on the Toteboard. You can view our picks and results for earlier races that day at each track! Results are updated continuously during the day and are usually available one hour after a race completes.
||One link per track with the track name. Oops, didn't realize racing is done at that track? They did.
||Our unique Big 'Uns provide you with a list of our biggest hits across all the tracks we cover. This list is updated continuously throughout the day. You can see the entire Big 'Uns list or see some random highlights on the right side of the page. By the way, all of our listed biggest hits are recent (from the last 7 days).
||They'll put a $1000 Pick-3 that they hit 4 months ago on the top of every tip sheet.
|Additional Racing Information Provided
||On our E-Z Win™ Form, WinningPonies.com provides our rated entries and include some notes on factors we feel are important. Not enough? Click the View Past Performances link and see comprehensive past performance information, similar to what you would find in a racing form.
||They write a few canned comments for each horse which are basically restating irrelevant factors that you can find in the racing form.
||View real-time transaction history online! See all your transactions (WinningCredit purchases, track purchases, and bonuses). Also, we will email you a monthly statement of your account activity.
||Check all those charges from us on your credit card statement. Don't remember what those charges were for? They don't either.
||Scratches updated several times per hour and our form updates on the fly accordingly.
||Their "Best Bet of the Day" scratched? You're on your own.
||Feel free to choose the current track condition to view our form tailored specifically for that condition.
||Umm, track condition makes a difference?
|Races Coming Off the Turf
||No problem. Select Off the Turf and our dynamic interface will show you the picks for that race on the main track!
||They just give you a tip with a disclaimer (bet is good on the turf ONLY). You have nothing to bet and they have no liability.
||This will be handled automatically. Once we determine that racing was cancelled at a particular track, we credit all applicable members with the correct number of WinningCredits.
||Send them an email and when they get to it, they'll issue you a credit.
||When you choose WinningPonies.com, you are choosing a real corporation. We handle all aspects of our business in-house. This includes billing, account management, handicapping, marketing, and customer service.
||They are just a bunch of guys who type up a sheet and have some horse racing-related sites advertise, sell and support it for them.
