Once at the site, handicappers can click on the "News and Stats" tab near the top of the homepage, and then go to "Driver/Trainer Standings." There, you’ll find an endless amount of numbers provided by StatsMaster, which is powered by TrackMaster.
Some of the data you’ll find may surprise you, and also enable you to get a leg up on those who opt to not use the site, which is always free.
Some of the golden nuggets found after sifting through the rocks include:
• Eric Carlson and Eric Abbatiello both sport solid UDRS of .271 during the month of February
• Marcus Miller has nine wins with trotters thus far in 2018, the most of any driver, while Anthony Napolitano is next with eight
• Given the number of favorites he drives, Yannick Gingras sports a remarkable positive ROI of 111 percent for his 34 drives in the month of February
• Thus far this year, two drivers with positive ROIs include Abbatiello (53 percent) and Bill Mann (40 percent with only 3 wins in 52 starts)
• Two top trainers with outstanding ROIs this year include Ron Burke (55 percent) and Jenn Bongiorno (42 percent)
So try StatsMaster at the Big M’s website, it just might reveal something that will help you hit big.
FRIDAY FACTS: The Feb. 16 program saw $2.6 million in total handle, an average of just over $200,000 per race, the third time this year that per race plateau was reached. … In the Late 20-Cent Jackpot Super High-Five, the 7-5 favorite hit the wire first followed by the third, fourth and second choices in that order. Despite all of that chalk, those who had the winning combination of 5-9-4-1-8 still cashed $274.68 for a 20-cent wager. Interest is certain to be sky high this Friday in the bet, as the carryover has now swelled to $108,155.
