Brandon Quick

Brandon Quick was born just a few blocks from Louisville's famed Churchill Downs and became a student of racing in his mid-20's. Brandon relies on a comprehensive approach to handicapping that includes detailed study of past performance, a keen understanding of pace, and in-depth pedigree knowledge.

Above all, Brandon believes in creating value and eliminating fringe players by finding the horse most likely to improve or excel under the timing and exact conditions of the race being studied.
