This is no small feat as most competing handicapping services did not come close to the winning combination. Handicappers who primarily rely on antiquated rating systems, such as Beyer speed ratings, did not fare well.
"Successfully picking a high-paying Trifecta with your top three picks (particularly in a race with 20 entries), is extremely impressive.", claims George Powell, Director of Marketing. "Achieving the same accomplishment in two consecutive years is simply unheard of."
"Based on the dozens of testimonials we received in the past week, it appears we generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in wealth for our customers in this one race," states Powell. "A simple $2 Trifecta box cost $12 and yielded over $3,400. However, some of our customers pressed the bet even more and hit $10 Trifecta boxes for payoffs of over $17,000. Not bad for a $60 bet."
Shaun T., a student from Gloucester, VA, submitted a testimonial about his immediate success using the service:
"I was so lucky to have found you guys. I am new at all this and was attempting to handicap the Derby. While doing my research I came across a blogger who mentioned your site. Because your prices were so reasonable (I'm a college student) I decided to go ahead and get your picks. I only had $50 bucks total to spend on Derby day and most of my wager I spent on Colonel John and Pyro. I used my last $12 for an Trifecta on Big Brown, Eight Belles and Denis of Cork. Wow! I'm now $3000 richer and heading on vacation as soon as exams are over, I can't thank you enough."
Susan H., from Westerly, RI is another happy customer:
"Yikes. You guys are amazing. Thanks to you I won $1,700.00 on the top 3 horses in the Kentucky Derby yesterday - on a $6.00 bet. I was skeptical of your choice of Denis of Cork and Eight Belles, because it seemed like no one else was predicting them in the top 3, but I went with your advice. I cried my eyes out when Eight Belles went down and still feel lousy today. But am looking forward to more of your great predictions. This was the first time I've ever placed a bet on anything - and now, not the last! Thank you!"

A buzz has been stirring on various handicapping bulletin boards where WinningPonies.com posted their analysis of the Derby (including their top 3 selections). One reader posted "[their] info was ON THE MONEY" and another proclaimed WinningPonies.com as "the only capper who had the Derby combo correct."
Furthermore, considering the number of customers who purchased the Derby selections on WinningPonies.com, it is very possible that the site directly affected the actual Trifecta payoff in the Derby.
WinningPonies.com has been working diligently on their Preakness picks. "We hope to repeat our success in the next two legs of the Triple Crown, " Powell says. "We love making our customers happy and significantly wealthier."
