ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Rich Nilsen caught the horse racing bug at a young age when his father took him to the racetracks in New York. He eventually attended the University of Louisville Equine Business Program with the goal of making a career in the horse racing industry.

Nilsen has worked the past 26 years in the equine industry, serving most of those years as the Marketing Director for Brisnet.com and TwinSpires.com, the Official Wagering Site of the Kentucky Derby.

During his long tenure at the Churchill Downs-owned properties, Nilsen managed the successful Players’ Pool syndicate, which pooled funds from the account wagering members to go after large Pick-6 carryovers. During Nilsen’s leadership, the Players’ Pool produced a significant profit for the members over the course of seven years. One of the best hits was when the Players’ Pool took down half of the Pick-6 pool on Kentucky Derby Day 2007, with a gross return of over $500,000.  The Pool had several other hits over $250,000.

The $2.8 Million National Handicapping Championship (NHC) is the premier horse racing tournament in the nation. It is basically horse racing’s version of the World Series of Poker, with the main difference being that players cannot buy their way into the NHC. Players can only win their way in via tournaments held throughout the country. Nilsen is one of the top participants in the history of the event, having qualified 15 times. He was the first player, and one of only a handful, to finish in the top 10 at the NHC twice.

Nilsen is the founder and editor of AGameofSkill.com, a site devoted to horse racing education and promotion.  He only provides selections like this on a few select days of the day.

 

About My Analysis

In this comprehensive yet concise report, I provide selections for all 14 Breeders’ Cup races for both days, as well as pace scenario analysis which is absolutely vital for predicting the outcomes of these events.

Spot Plays are my best bets and key wagering horses for the big weekend. Picking your spots is key to profiting on the races, especially when it comes to the Breeders’ Cup. The opportunities are plentiful but you improve your chances by selecting key spot plays and focusing most of your bets on those plays.

Set aside a budget for these two days and be sure to have plenty of ammunition for the bigger of the two days, Saturday. Best of luck!

“Hey Rich.. Thanks for putting me on Tapwrit !! I liked him and Gormley and Irish War Cry… I had Tapwrit straight & the exacta.  Tapwrit & Gormley both had “dream trips”, But Gormley didnt want to go that far… Hey !! let’s give some love to Disco Partner for his new North  American record for 6 panels. I had him straight  and also knocked down the exacta of 2-4 for $42.00… Hope you had a good day & made some cash!  Thanks Again, ” ~ Wayne M.

“Rich, thanks for your terrific analysis of the Gulfstream Park [Rainbow Six 3/31/18].  I was able to hit the Pick 6 [paid $9,018 for twenty cents!].   Anyone out there who bets horses would be well advised to download your sheet on every major race day… thanks again for a job well done.” ~ Evan C.

“Great job, Rich!” ~ Jeff S.

“Rich: nice job Travers Day! Thanks to Arrogate, you gave me a good day. How in the world did you land on him? I suspect you’re doing some kind of voodoo pace analysis. If you ever decide to give lessons or a seminar, let me know.” ~ Kelley S.

Last Year’s Write-Up on TOP SELECTION CREATOR

CREATOR lost his best chance when he broke from an inside post in the field of 20 and encountered a rough trip in the Kentucky Derby.  Prior to that he was ultra impressive, sweeping by the field in the G1 Arkansas Derby.  If you want to see an incredible maiden win, just go back and what this colt’s Feb. 27 score at Oaklawn, and you’ll again see the type of late kick this guy possesses.  Trainer Steve Asmussen has the son of Tapit working well for this rebound race, including a blowout 4f drill over the Belmont training track. Bred to run all day, Creator will drop back under new rider Irad Ortiz, Jr. and come rolling late at a big price. 

Testimonial from the 2017 Sheet:

“Hey Rich.. Thanks for putting me on Tapwrit !! I liked him and Gormley and Irish War Cry.

I think  #9 meantime had enough speed to compromise Irish War Cry. Have feeling that if he wasn’t in the race, Irish War Cry might have been loose on the lead ,and had enough to win.  I had Tapwrit straight & the exacta.  Tapwrit & Gormley both had “dream trips”, But Gormley didnt want to go that far… Hey !! let’s give some love to Disco Partner for his new North  American record for 6 panels. I had him straight  and also knocked down the exacta of 2-4 for $42.00… Hope you had a good day & made some cash !!
 
Thanks Again,

Breeders Cup 2015 analysis2014 Recap:

Four of the five Spot Plays given out on the Breeders’ Cup Analysis by AGameofSkill founder Rich Nilsen won and won big.  The highlight was the top selection Work All Week, who upset the Breeders’ Cup Sprint to the tune of $40.20 and keyed the trifecta play given out on the sheet which paid a whopping $1,064.70 (for every $1 increment).

Nilsen’s first Spot Play of the day was Dayathespa, who cruised to an easy win in the Filly & Mare Turf and paid a generous $13.00 to Win and $6.60 to Place.

The next Spot Play was the recommended Win wager on Bobby’s Kitten in the Turf Sprint.  The cutback runner for trainer Chad Brown returned $16.40.

Next up from Nilsen was the $64.80 exacta with Main Sequence over Flintshire in the Breeders’ Cup Turf.

In the very next race WORK ALL WEEK took the Sprint, paying $40.20 and $18.40, hitting the big trifecta, and completing an $1,814.70 Pick-3 for those who used Nilsen’s top 3 selections.

SAMPLE ANALYSIS FROM THE 2014 REPORT

FILLY & MARE TURF ANALYSIS

PACE SCENARIO: Dayatthespa is the clear lone speed in this 1 1/4 mile race.  The daughter of City Zip stretches out off a 1 mile win at Keeneland and she will take this field as far as she can under crafty rider Javier Castellano.  She won a grade one easily at 9 furlongs, finishing the last 1/8th in a sizzling :11.2.  The euro invader offering the best value is Fiesolana.

Spot Play? Play # 4 Dayatthespa to Win and Place.

Selections:

1st- # 4 Dayatthespa (8/1)

2nd- # 6 Fiesolana (8/1)

3rd- # 3 Dank (5/2)

4th- #10 Stephanie’s Kitten (3/1)

SPRINT ANALYSIS

PACE SCENARIO: A fast pace is ensured in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint with Fast Anna and Work All Week the speed of the speed.  The older horse, Work All Week, will sit right off the flank off the sophomore colt to his inside before taking over.  Undefeated on fast dirt in 7 attempts, Work All Week doesn’t have to carry his racetrack with him and the win machine could be this good for Midwest Thoroughbreds.

Spot Play? Play #13 Work All Week to Win and Place. Play a trifecta partwheel #5, 13 with #5, 13 with ALL.  Trifecta partwheel #5, 13 with ALL with #5, 13.

Selections:

1st- #13 Work All Week (10/1)

2nd- # 5 Private Zone (6/1)

3rd- # 8 Palace (6/1)

4th- # 6 Rich Tapestry (5/1)

5th – #10 Big Macher (12/1)
