James Ross is a British bookmaker with over 20 years experience working “on-course” at race tracks in the UK, trading lines for sportsbooks like Betfred and Paddy Power, and is now the spokesperson for BUSR based in the UK. James’ favorite race is the Aintree Grand National which runs in Liverpool, his home town - although his favorite racing festivals are Royal Ascot and Chester where the weather is much warmer and the girls can get dressed up! Although James is not an expert in American racing (at all), BUSR are specialists in US Racing and offer a wide variety of futures markets- leading the industry on Triple Crown betting. The website for Winningponies listeners to check out BUSR is, you also have a promo code PONIES with a 20% sign up bonus f James has made a special offer to listeners of this show of a free $20.00 win wager on the Kentucky Derby and he will be going head-to-head with John with a $200 win wager for a charity of their choice. Ed Meyer has been betting winners since he raided his father’s change jar in middle school and cashed on a $20.00 play at Latonia Racetrack. Now a veteran handicapper, odds-maker, racing official and on-air television and radio personality, he will put down his binoculars and join us after his 2021 debut of calling races at Belterra Park. Always the ladies man, we have assigned Ed the task of breaking down the $1,250,000 G1 Longines Kentucky Oaks for 3-year-old fillies on Friday. This race is chock full of lightly raced horses with a whole lot of upside in their careers – which could spell value galore at the betting windows as they travel 9-furlongs – most for the first time. Of course, Ed will give us his analysis of his favorite races on the undercards and the “Run for the Roses!” Jay Privman covers the Southern California circuit plus such national events as the Triple Crown and Breeders' Cup. He is the author of Breeders' Cup: Thoroughbred Racing's Championship Day and a contributor to Champions, and is a six-time winner of the Red Smith Award for best Kentucky Derby story, among numerous other writing honors. He joined Daily Racing Form in 1998. The well-respected author and columnist keeps his finger on the pulse of racing, particularly the horses competing on the west coast. Jay has witnessed his fair share of Derbies (how else can you win six Red Smith Awards?) and is ready to roll with his insights in this year’s edition after his seminar with Andy Beyer and Mike Welsch aired on 7:00 p.m. Wednesday. As always we look forward to his appearance on Winningponies with analysis of “The greatest two minutes in sports” and any other races he has a strong opinion about.
