The Irish-bred Deauville, third in the Arlington Million last year, is the 7-2 morning line favorite to win Saturday’s race. He drew the 5 post. The Arlington Million, the capstone of one of my favorite days of racing, was designed to test the best U.S. turf horses against Europe’s lords and ladies of the lawn. It’s done that time and time again in the 34 years since the great John Henry captured the inaugural running by a nose over long shot The Bart.
After Arrogate’s stumble, 4-5 favorite can cement his status as a leader in the older horse division by taking down the $1.2 million race on Saturday at Saratoga. But it doesn’t look like a walkover. Just two weeks ago in this space I was advising fans to sit on their wallets and watch Arrogate walk over an overmatched field in the San Diego Stakes (G2) at Del Mar.
Establishing a morning line of your own is a great way to add some discipline to your betting strategy. Here’s how it’s done. You’ll often hear handicappers talk about finding “value” in a horse race, but they seldom stop to explain what they mean. There’s a reason for this: While few would argue against the notion that it makes sense to bet on contenders that have a better chance of winning than their odds suggest, there’s no foolproof way to identify those horses in a given race.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
