ARCADIA, CA (Aug. 29, 2022) – With closing weekends on the horizon for this summer’s Saratoga and Del Mar meets, XBTV.com has already successfully captured, cataloged and uploaded nearly 2,000 morning video workouts for racing’s marquee meets. This milestone provides handicappers and horsemen with access to the nation’s top horses and future stars. The XBTV workouts are available without cost to those with a 1/ST account.
“An analysis of a published workout based only on final time can lead to a faulty conclusion,” said Jeff Siegel, Xpressbet.com handicapper and one of the country’s most respected analysts. “How the breeze was accomplished, and which work mate it was accomplished with, can be just as important, if not more so, especially at Saratoga and Del Mar, where so many young horses make their debuts. Rather than relying on independent analysis, the XBTV.com video workouts allow horseplayers and horsemen to use their own insight and formulate their own opinions to solve the puzzle.”
XBTV’s video workout library is available at no cost for 1/ST account holders. To set up a free 1/ST account, visit XBTV.com and provide your name, email address and date of birth. A 1/ST account also allows customers to access the 1/ST BET and Xpressbet betting platforms as well as BETMIX handicapping software.
With Del Mar’s TVG Pacific Classic and Saratoga’s Jockey Club Gold Cup set for Saturday, September 3rd, most runners in the large fields expected in the full cards that day should have workouts on XBTV. As happens at Santa Anita Park and Gulfstream Park during the Winter and Spring, XBTV camera teams have been trackside each morning working with the Official Clockers at each track to record as many of the workouts as possible. The full XBTV library allows handicappers to the opportunity to look at how a horse’s work pattern might have changed – positively or negatively – throughout its career.
Several syndicates / fractional ownership groups, including West Point Thoroughbreds, MyRacehorse, Little Red Feather and Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, have separate portals on the XBTV.com site to follow their horses. The workouts are also featured on NBC Sports’ Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series coverage and on Fox Sports’ Saratoga Live.
XBTV’s exclusive video workouts will return to Santa Anita Park and Gulfstream this fall prior to both track’s Autumn meets.
