Preparing for Breeders’ Cup 2012
By Dana Byerly, Hello Race Fans Co-founder

Last week we tried to get you in the mood for Breeders’ Cup 2012 by bringing you Three Great Moments from each of the original Breeders’ Cup races. Now that the pre-entries have been released, it’s time to get to work!

But, before you hunker down, we have some content that might help you make the most of the two-day extravaganza.

How to Watch a Race
While watching a race may seem like a no-brainer, there’s a definite skill involved to ensure that you’re seeing as much of the race as possible.

Watching Replays
The Breeders’ Cup has made it easy for you to watch all the Challenge Race replays by creating a playlist of them at YouTube. Before you head over there, check out our overview of what to look for when you’re evaluating a performance.

You Better Work!: A Primer on Workouts
It’s one of the two most wonderful times of the year – the time when you can find free clocker report information!

I Love a Parade
How a horse looks on paper is one thing, but when the gates open are they ready to go? The post parade and warm-up can provide insight.

Breeders’ Cup Turf Trends
The Kentucky Derby isn’t the only race in town for those who like to snuggle up with a good spreadsheet.

Handicappers Elsewhere
During big race days you might find yourself looking for validation, guidance or just to see if you covered every angle? Sometimes your local public handicapper can come in handy.

If you haven’t ever spent time in our Handicapping or Wagering sections, the Beginners’ Corner might be a great place start. Even if you’re not technically a beginner we have our content organized by activity (spending a day at the track,) or subject (handicapping, wagering strategy, etc) so it’s easy to find what you’re looking for. In a sense the page functions as an alternate homepage or a sitemap… take a look (and/or send it to your friends)!
