MEET THE MAN WHO WON ENOUGH TO BUY HIS OWN FARM & RACE HORSES!
In 1981, Col. Joe, an honorary Kentucky Colonel and professional handicapper, made racing history by hitting all 9 races at Belmont Park on Belmont Stakes Day.

To win all 9 Races is a feat of handicapping only a few of the best analysts in history have ever accomplished. But, for “the Colonel” it was just “another day at the office.” Insiders who know racing and betting had been long familiar with Colonel Joe's almost otherwordly ability to pick winners, especially VALUE LONGSHOTS that bettors and even professional handicappers “threw out” as having no chance.
His professional accomplishments made him famous:
- Author of over a dozen books on racing and handicapping
- Newspaper columnist for The Baltimore Sun & Racing Action
- Sports Columnist for College & Pro Football Newsweekly
- Creator of the “Blackjack” Betting System To Maximize Profits

Before going into semi-retirement in 2002. And that doesn't show the 18 Preaknesses and 14 Belmont Stakes winners and exactas he hit between 1979 and 2002.
ALWAYS THINKING "APART FROM THE PACK"
The Colonel was one of the first handicappers to “break away from the pack” and discard traditional speed and class “figs” in favor of his own “Apart From the Pack” handicapping systems. The reason for the break was obvious—racing is a parimutuel game. If you think like everyone else all you do is come up with the favorites. You have to find new methods that the rest of the bettors don't see. Let them follow the herd and bet favorites. We'll make money with value plays.
At no time was that thinking more evident than in the 1993 Breeders' Cup Classic when a week before the race in his nationally distributed RAZOR'S EDGE RACING NEWSLETTER, the Colonel wrote: "Arcangue ships in from France for a trainer so accomplished that you have to believe he's NOT FLYING AN OCEAN AWAY JUST TO GET A SEAT AT THE BREEDERS' CUP. This is a serious contender. His price will be huge. At anything over 25-1 he is an AUTOMATIC WAGER."
ARCANGUE WON AT 133.60 TO 1 and Colonel Joe was the ONLY HANDICAPER in the WORLD TO PICK THAT $269.20 WINNER and HE DID IT A WEEK IN ADVANCE!
THE MAN WHO MADE MILLIONS FOR HIS CLIENTS...
Old time bettors know that no one put together a better money management and value handicapping service than the Colonel that:
- Showed a Racing Profit For Clients Every Year from 1981 through 2002
- Consistently Packaged Racing Weekends That Profited Thousands
- Took Advantage of Modern Computer Systems to Create More Cash Wins
His clients made MILLIONS at the races collectively over the years. And until his heart attack, the Colonel lived the good life of racing magnate. In fact, the Colonel purchased a breeding farm and race horses with his Belmont day racing winnings.
His horses raced all over the East Coast and won at Pimlico, Delaware Park and other major racing centers.
He raced until he had a heart attack in the 1990's and had to slow down the pace. After 2002, the Colonel semi-retired from racing and handicapping, dealing with a few good clients and old friends on a private, one-on-one bais only.
Now, he's back and ready to HELP A WHOLE NEW GENERATION OF HORSE PLAYERS THINK “APART FROM THE PACK” and win big.
