The Belmont Stakes & You

belmont_stakes

Did you know that you can bet the last jewel of the Triple Crown with us? As you sit down to handicap for the big festival of racing, do you know the full history behind the Belmont Stakes?

Imagine the year’s biggest horse racing events as a fancy, royal crown you can wear on your head. The Triple Crown has three spots for brilliant jewels: the first jewel is the Kentucky Derby. The second jewel is the Preakness. The third and final jewel is the Belmont Stakes. These elite horse racing days truly bring the best of the best–horse racing royalty. This year’s Belmont Stakes is no exception as the racing field is full of well-known contenders. The morning line favorite is Exaggerator (Jockey: Kent Desormeaux / Owner: Big Chief Racing, LLC / Trainer: J. Keith Desormeaux) at 9/5 odds.

Even though the Belmont is the third jewel in the Triple Crown and happens last in the horse racing extravaganza, it’s actually one of the oldest stakes races in North America. It’s also the oldest of the Triple Crown events: the Belmont Stakes first ran in 1867, the  Preakness in 1873, and the Kentucky Derby in 1875.

The tradition of betting the Belmont first started in 1867 thanks to the son of a 19th century banker and racing enthusiast. The banker, named August Belmont Sr, passed along his money and love for the sport to his son, August Jr. Among other things, August Jr. went on to be the chairman of the Jockey Club for 30 years, founded Belmont Park, and was the head of New York’s first Racing Commission.

The winner of the Belmont Stakes is the recipient of not just prestige, fame, and airtime on NBC, but also some fabulous gifts from Belmont Park. The winner is draped in the iconic Belmont Stakes white carnation blanket, which is made up of over 700 single carnations. The white carnations represent love and luck, and as such, are the traditional flower of the Belmont Stakes. The winner also gets to take home the awe-inspiring Belmont Trophy.

Known as the August Belmont Memorial Cup, it was first presented by the Belmont Family in 1926 to that year’s winner, Crusader. Each year that trophy is handed down to the next winner. The winning owner, trainer, and jockey receive a silver miniature Belmont Trophy.

Specially crafted by Tiffany & Co, the trophy is a gorgeous silver bowl and cover with some distinctive features which set it apart from every other trophy out there. On the top of the trophy’s cover is a figure of the 1869 Belmont Stakes winner, Fenian, who was rode to glory by August Belmont himself. The cover sits on top of the bowl. Underneath it, the bowl is supported by three silver horses. These silver figures represent Herod, Eclipse, and Matchem; the three grandsons of the historic forefathers of thoroughbred racing.

These three horses pay homage to the three thoroughbred stallion grandfathers: Byerly Turk, Darley Arabian, and Godolphin Arabian. It’s said all thoroughbreds descend from these three bloodlines. From the three horses represented on the Cup, the lineage of Eclipse is predominant in the modern thoroughbred.

BelmontEpisode

Staying in the Belmont spirit, we published a very special Belmont Stakes podcast episode in this week’s installment of Catch the Action with Greyhound Channel! After checking in with greyhound current events and promotions, Alicia and Katie sat down with The Professor to glean tips and other insights on the Belmont Stakes. They learned quite a bit!

The Professor discussed his favorite Belmont Throwback experiences which included watching Secretariat, and also the memories of Affirmed boxing out Alydar in all three 1978 Triple Crown races. Before American Pharoah earned his Triple Crown bragging rights last year, Affirmed was the previous champion who most recently won the Triple Crown.

Do you have any favorite experiences or memories of the Belmont Stakes? We’d love to hear them! Share your experiences with us by replying to our Twitter and Facebook posts regarding the Belmont Throwback and you’ll be entered to win one of our two American Pharoah t-shirts!

The Last Handicapper Standing

LHS_BackAgain

Back again for its third year, the Last Handicapper Standing Stakes Challenge is a popular contest designed to test your handicapping skills. The LHS will have you competing against your fellow handicappers each round to achieve the highest mutuel payout total for WPS over the course of several stakes races.

This contest is all about embracing the challenge of handicapping with the excitement of multiple stakes series. Handicappers new and old have brought out the pens, scratch paper, and programs to figure out which pup will come out on top each qualifying round with the best WPS mutuel payout total.

Throughout the duration of the contest, we’ll be handicapping Palm Beach’s Bob Balfe Puppy Stakes, Southland’s Spring Futurity, Derby Lane’s Gold Trophy Juvenile, Southland’s Razorback Classic, bestbet’s Puppy Stakes, Southland’s Southland Derby, and Derby Lane’s St. Petersburg Derby. Not only will you submit your selection per round on the Greyhound Channel contest site, but you also put your money where your mouth is by placing a $2.00 WPS on your handicapping entry. (Note: the $2.00 WPS bet is required in order for your handicapping entry to count toward the LHS contest. Any entry without an accompanying $2.00 WPS bet for a handicapping selection will not count towards the contest.)

We kicked off the first round of LHS on Wednesday, April 13, which featured the qualifying races of Palm Beach’s Bob Balfe Puppy Stakes round 1 (races 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, and 15).

Contest of Champions- 2015

We agree with our customers: the Track of the Week Saturday Handicapping Contest is one of our favorite promotions! The Saturday Handicapping Contest is offered every single Saturday throughout the year, spotlighting different greyhound tracks each week and inviting our customers to participate in the free handicapping contest for their chance to win up to $200! For this week’s 1/30/16 Track of the Week Handicapping Contest, we’ll be playing at Derby Lane! Enter this week’s Contest here for your chance to win up to $200!

The Professor has been putting on this handicapping contest since 2011. Every Saturday we watch the greyhound races and cheer on our contest participants. The winner is announced on Sunday morning and receives $100 credited to their wagering account. Not to be left out, the top five finishers receive Greyhound Channel Contest Points to their Greyhound Channel Contest site account, to be used to redeem for #greyt merchandise and wagering credits. We post the handicapping contest results to Greyhound Channel, and also our Facebook and Twitter pages because we’re impressed by our customers’ handicapping skills.

Saturday’s winner is then invited back to participate in the head-to-head Handicapping Challenge the following Monday. We pit the winner up against The Professor: he’s one of our dedicated in-house handicappers and authors the biweekly Greyhound Channel Blog series This Week with The Professor. Always a gentleman, The Professor allows the Saturday Winner to have first-pick to choose their greyhound to win the race, then he makes a pick. If the Saturday Winner’s choice finishes ahead of The Professor’s selection, they are declared the winner of the challenge and receive an additional $100!

The Saturday Handicapping Contest Winner from each week is recorded. At the end of the year, The Professor invites all of the weekly winners to participate in the Contest of Champions.

The Professor has been putting on this free contest for several years. Our first Contest of Champions was held back in early 2012 for the 2011 Track of the Week Saturday Handicapping Contest winners. Each year, the Contest of Champions is held at a different track and is only open to those previous year’s Track of the Week Saturday Handicapping Contest winners.

This year’s 2015 Contest of Champions will be using the night program at bestbet on February 6, 2016. And the #greyt thing about the Contest of Champions?

Spotlight: New Year Survey Responses

NewYear_NewPromos_Winner

As 2015 ushered in 2016, we became introspective. While we don’t believe in New Year’s Resolutions (ice cream tastes way too good!), we thought we could at least reflect on 2015 and set the bar higher for 2016. Sometimes, it can be difficult to see what’s right in front of you. We wanted to get a fresh perspective from people we care about so we turned to our customers for feedback.

We created a survey asking questions about our 2015 promotions. Over the course of two weeks, we had 146 participants take a moment out of their day to send us feedback. As we appreciate our customers taking time out of their busy lives to let us know how we’re doing, we thought it’d only be fair to share the survey results with everyone.

Questions 1 & 2: What was your favorite promotion or contest from 2015? Why was that promotion or contest your favorite?

We had over 30% of people say their favorite promotion was our Track of the Week Handicapping Contest. It’s one of our favorites, too, especially when our customers have the weekly chance to win up to $200–free! We had folks say their second most favorite promotion of 2015 was our 10% Deposit Bonus. Understandably, 58% of our customers said it was the prize or bonus that made our promotions engaging. The level of difficulty was also a big reason for people, as it came in with 18% of survey responses.

Question 3: How do you hear about our promotions and contests?

This question was very interesting for us because we promote our contests on many different platforms. You can always get the latest and #greyt-est news from the promotional banners and the promotions link on Greyhound Channel; our Greyhound Channel Contest site; our Facebook and Twitter accounts; by calling us and listening to our phone recording or speaking with a Greyhound Channel Customer Service Representative; signing up for and receiving our promotional emails and newsletter, the Inside Lure; or by word of mouth from a friend, family member, or promotional advertisement at your favorite greyhound track.

Over 68% of respondents selected they learn about new promotions and contests by visiting Greyhound Channel directly. Of that 68%, 36% of our survey responses said they learn about our contests and promotions by the promotional banners posted daily and 32% said they utilize the promotions link via Greyhound Channel.

Questions 4 & 5: Do you have a Twitter or Facebook? Would you be willing to create a Twitter or Facebook account to participate in our promotions or contests?

The majority (58%) of our survey-takers said they had some form of social media account. A total of 61% of folks were receptive to the idea of creating a Twitter or Facebook account just to connect with us–wow! That makes us feel pretty special. 🙂

Question 6: Do you have any additional feedback you would like to share?

This question was purposefully designed to be open-ended because we wanted truthful answers from our customers. The responses were overwhelmingly positive. Our Greyhound Channel Customer Service Representatives were praised several times for their level of professionalism, knowledge, and kindness. Folks provided additional information about their favorite promotions and why they liked them so much, which was great. We received a few ideas for new promotions, which is exciting for us as we plan to brainstorm new promotions for the coming year.

FBSurveyWinner

Your comments and feedback were incredibly positive and we appreciated everyone taking a moment to help us reflect on 2015. Everyone who participated received a $2.00 wagering credit to their Greyhound Channel account and on the final day of the survey, we randomly selected Jeremiah W. from over 145 survey respondents to receive the $25.00 Survey Prize!

We’ve unpacked the survey questions and posted your feedback. Now the real question is, what do we plan on doing with the information? What does that mean for our customers?

It means we will continue to be as dedicated to you now as we were on our first day of business back in 2000. We pledge to bring you even more new and dynamic content for 2016. We have taken your feedback and are in the process of creating promotions to entice and challenge our customers. We plan to build on our popular promotions, such as the Track of the Week Handicapping Challenge and the daily Paydog Pick of the Day (PPOD), to offer more options and greater rewards for all.

 

Don’t forget your favorite weekly promotion, our Track of the Week Handicapping Contest, is coming up tomorrow at Naples Park! Be sure to play for your chance at a free $200.00!

Derby Lane Holiday Distance Challenge / Exotic Howliday Jackpot

GeneralBanner_Blog

One of the biggest stakes series of the holiday season concluded Saturday, December 12, 2015 with the final round of the $75,000 Derby Lane Holiday Distance Challenge. The Challenge consisted of five rounds and ushered an impressive complement of greyhound athletes every race.

Running parallel with Derby Lane’s Holiday Distance Challenge, we created a dynamic promotion to coincide with the five rounds. The Exotic Howliday Jackpot promotion was comprised of hitting specific wagers to earn points (1-exacta, 2-trifecta, 2-superfecta) in any of the official Holiday Distance Challenge races in the specific round. A maximum of 5 points could be earned per round, with the contest’s total amount of points being 25.

ExoticHowliday_DreamBanner_newsletter

Saturday, November 28 kicked off round 1 with four races (4, 6, 8, 10) and we had posted our hot dog picks right here on the Blog. We are pleased to report we were in the money every single race, two of which were winners. HIGHLY CLASSIFIED and LK’S MC CLINTOCK each won, NIGHT GODDESS placed, and LK’S TRAMONTINA showed.Our Greyhound Channel Exotic Howliday Jackpot participants racked up points and took their spots on the official leaderboard.

Round 2 of the Holiday Distance Challenge took off on Wednesday, December 2 with another four races (4, 6, 8, 10). We had another great turnout with the hot dogs we picked. LK’S MC CLINTOCK won his race with HIGHLY CLASSIFIED and BARTS MOUSTAKAS placing in each of their races. Our Greyhound Channel Exotic Howliday Jackpot participants scored here, with names being added and points flying onto the leaderboard.

Saturday, December 5 flew by with only two races (6, 10) in round 3 of Derby Lane’s Holiday Distance Challenge. In race 6 our hot dog, HIGHLYCLASSIFIED, won! In race 10, our other hot dog, BARTS MOUSTAKAS, flashed across the finish line for another win! By this point, our Greyhound Channel Exotic Howliday Jackpot participants were feeling the crush, what with only two races to score points in vs. the prior four race rounds. Impressively, points continued to be earned despite this extra level of difficulty.

The semi-finals were full of anticipation on Wednesday, December 9: both for the actual races at Derby Lane, and to see how the Exotic Howliday Jackpot contenders fared. The two-race (6,10) round was full of anticipation as we wondered whether our hot dogs could make the cut. In race 6, we were not disappointed as BARTS MOUSTAKAS blazed through for the win. Race 10 boasted a full card of eager pups who didn’t disappoint with their impressive performances. The fact participants could only earn points in the two races, again, made it difficult to stay ahead in this promotion. Not surprisingly, the handicapping caliber of our contenders saw them through another tough round. Points steadily increased on our leaderboard.

HighlyClassified

Race 10 on Saturday, December 12 was the final round for the Holiday Distance Challenge and it went off with a bang. Eight stellar hounds went head-to-head and we were so impressed with the entire field that it was truly tough to say who would win this final race. Our early first round hot dog pick, HIGHLYCLASSIFIED, won it going away. He had a flawless break and by racing smartly to avoid trouble and using the final turn in the backstretch, he was on the chase and overcame GT’S GIN N JUICE to snag the win. As Derby Lane’s Jim Peake stated, “it [was] a two dog race!”

Our Exotic Howliday Jackpot finished with the final round of the Holiday Distance Challenge. We had two winners, both of which finished with the maximum amount of points possible. Rick C. and Jason G. split the $1,000 jackpot for $500 each. Great job to all who participated!

Don’t forget: We still have our other promotion, Bonus Bandit’s Greyt Gifts, with 6 days of greyt gifts left to receive! Stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, and contest site for daily updates.

This Week with The Professor: Trouble Prone Greyhounds?

TroubleProne-GreytGifts

Have you ever looked over the racing form and found what appears to be a “diamond in the rough” quality hound? The next time you’re tempted to take one of these pups, keep The Professor’s tips in mind.

Trouble prone greyhounds?

I am sure that you have noticed that there are greyhounds whose past performance lines contain many comments, such as “bumped, collided, shut off, etc.” The fact that these greyhounds are constantly in trouble is not just bad luck. You may want to use these recent problems as a reason to select that dog in the upcoming race. Beware of this angle: it can be hazardous to your bankroll.

There are a number of reasons that this type of greyhound is getting himself in trouble. One may be that he does not have enough early speed to get clear consistently. Another is that the dog may tend to “let up,” or “check” slightly in traffic, thus causing him to collide with other greyhounds. Some may not have a high racing “IQ” and are not able to avoid collisions.

Whatever the reason, to expect that “this time” will be different is folly, and can lead to a lightening of your wallet in a hurry. Avoid this type of greyhound when trying to find the “key” greyhound to wager on in a race.

There’s one greyhound that is ALWAYS a winner in our book, and it’s the Bonus Bandit! Today is day 14 of Bandit’s 24 Days of Greyt Gifts promotion, and we have an exciting prize for you.

Derby Lane’s $75,000 Holiday Distance Challenge Final is in Race 10 tonight with a start time of approximately 10:00 PM EST. Here are the hounds we think will come in on top:

#1, HIGHLYCLASSIFIED, is in a great spot to be in the race early and looks tough to hold off for the victory.

#6, BARTS MOUSTAKAS, usually has a great kick midtrack that should propel him for a spot in the money.

#8, GT’S GIN N JUICE. With her early speed, she will be winging early and hope to have enough to hang on for the win.
