    California Chrome Rich (03/24/16)

    By Dan Zucker


    Will California Chrome become the Richest Racehorse of All-Time?

    A true “Rags to Riches American Dream,” California Chrome's sire (dad) Lucky Pulpit, was an unknown stallion who stood for just $2,500. He was bred to Chrome's dam (mom), Love the Chase, an unproven race mare that never had a foal. Together, this unlikely duo produced California Chrome, winner of the 2014 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. Chrome has earned over $6.1mm lifetime and with a Dubai World Cup win, he would become the richest North American thoroughbred Racehorse of all-time.

    Here are the horses that Chrome is chasing on the all-time money list.

    Curlin



    The only North American bred racehorse to earn over $10mm, Curlin's two year racing career was nothing short of spectacular. First in the Preakness, second in the Belmont and third in the Kentucky Derby, Curlin finished out of the money in only one of 16 starts lifetime. Winner of the Dubai Cup and Breeders' Cup Classic in 2008, Curlin has gone on to a spectacular post-racing career. His offspring have earned over $25mm racing and he stands above the crowd as a rare, Sire of Sires. Owned by Stonestreet Farms, Curlin currently stands for $100,000 (for a live foal) at Hill ‘n' Dale Farms in Lexington Kentucky.

    Skip Away



    Runner up in the Preakness and Belmont Stakes in 1996, Skip Away amassed over $9.6mm during his four year racing career. Winner of the Breeders' Cup Classic in 1997, he raced in 31 Graded Stakes, finishing out of the money only once, ironically enough in the last start of his career.

    Cigar



    A fan favorite and superstar racehorse, Cigar filled every track he visited while racking up a winning streak of 16 consecutive races and earnings just shy of $10mm including the Breeders' Cup Classic and Dubai World Cup. Just a so-so racehorse at three and four, Cigar's transformation as an older horse is often attributed to the Hall-of-Fame jockey and trainer combination of Jerry Bailey and Bill Mott. A gelding who never had a chance to become a stallion, Cigar debunked Freud's notion that “sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.”

    The Predictalator

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
