Going Deeper: Picks vs. Past PerformancesWhat's the difference?
Picks, provided by DRF handicappers, are just what they sound like!
They are horses our guys think will win a particular race.
We also offer place and show picks as well as what we call a "Live longshot"
DRF Past Performances (PPs)
PPs allow the horseplayer to come up with your own decisions.
All of the data from a horse's previous races is in the PPs.
Read and dissect a race, read news and come to your own conclusions on who will come in first, second and third
