  • Bernie says:

    Without question, this is one of the most comprehensive websites dedicated to a particular racetrack that can be found on the Internet. Anyone who is serious about playing Tampa Bay Downs, and turning a profit at the meet, definitely needs to have the information provided here at their fingertips.

  • Tom Williams says:

    Staying ahead in the pari-mutuel arena requires access to insightful information that is not widely distributed, thereby diminishing it’s value. With his multi-angle trainer stats, pace profiles, and recognition of trainer intentions, Johnny B. stands far above the crowd. Want to be a winner at TBD this winter? Here’s the place to get a leg up on the competition.

  • BMK says:

    Johnny B. is the hardest working handicapper at Tampa and his trainer profiles are the best in the business. He covers the most trainer angles, they are easy to understand and the Win and ITM
    percentages are through the roof. Keep’em coming JB.

  • Dell Yount says:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR JOHNNY B. and continued success in 2010!!!

  • Bob Gary says:

    This is an amazing site. I’ve been a subscriber for years. JB gives you info you can’t get anywhere else. If you play Tampa Bay at all, this is IT!!

  • Pony Girl JCM says:

    The translator feature is a great addition to this page- Johnny B goes the distance to make it easy for all to get the most out of his great service-

  • Kim S says:

    I’ve been a subscriber to your site for a few years. Last week I made my first trip to Vegas to play in the Horse Players’ World Series. On the third day of the contest, February 25th, I played your top pick “Father Lucey” who won the first race at 14-1. You also had the $2 exacta for $70.20 in the same race. Great pick! Thank you!!

    Just listened to you on Dave Schwartz’s show (July 25th). I very much appreciated your down to earth, do your homework approach.

    I am about to retire and would like to focus on my home track (Turf Paradise)in much the manner as you have done in Tampa. Not sure my wife will tolerate it though.

    Anyway, bravo on being a winning horseplayer, that’s as good an epitaph as any.


  • Howard says:

    Just watched the webinar at dave schwartz’s website. Good show, I’m very impressed with your disciplined approach. I cant wait for the season to start at Tampa. Have you ever considered a second track during the 7+ months when Tampa is closed? Count me in as a new subsciber.

  • SS says:

    John is providing information that would take the average player years to gather. His approach is one that provides information that can’t be obtained by reading the form or buying DRF’s formulator. That speaks volume’s in today’s technology world. A great piece to add to your handicapping tools!!!

  • Skippy King says:

    You have made some very profitable calls the past week- thanks for your insight-
