The popular @BetKeeneland on Twitter, an interactive handle that provides horseplayers with real-time handicapping tips and insights, resumes for the 2018 fall meet and again will benefit the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance through its Handicapper of the Day Series.
Guest handicappers slated for the season include Britney Eurton, TVG reporter and part of the NBC Sports Triple Crown broadcast team; Gabby Gaudet, on-air racing analyst for the New York Racing Association and its Fox Sports telecasts; Scott Hazelton, on-air host and reporter for TVG; Richard Migliore, retired jockey and racing and workout analyst for XBTV; Jeff Siegel, noted Southern California handicapper and analyst/on-air host for XBTV; and Steve Sherack, senior editor of Thoroughbred Daily News.
They will share their daily picks and recommended wagers with a $200 bankroll they will play each race day to benefit the TAA, which accredits, inspects and awards grants to approved aftercare organizations to retire, retrain and rehome Thoroughbreds.
“The TAA is delighted to be participating in the @BetKeeneland initiative with Keeneland and select handicappers during the 2018 Fall Meet,” TAA operations consultant Stacie Clark Rogers said. “The relationship with horseplayers is important to us and the industry, and the TAA is honored to again be a part of this great initiative with our supporter Keeneland. We wish good luck to all of the handicappers playing this meet.”
Following the 2018 Spring Meet, Keeneland presented TAA with a check for $5,193.55.
