WELCOME TO THE RUNAWAY HORSE!
The Runaway Horse founder Jarrod Horak (pictured above) specializes in California thoroughbred racing. Nicknamed “calkid” in the 90’s by his racetrack buddies because of his penchant for the Southern California racing circuit, Jarrod hit the 1996 superfecta in the Kentucky Derby and bought his first computer later that year. He started selling full card analysis in 1998 and has been going strong ever since.
Jarrod Horak was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland and has been handicapping thoroughbred races since 1980. He served two seasons as Track Handicapper/TV Host for Louisiana Downs and has a long time association with racing websites Horse Racing Nation and Today’s Racing Digest. He currently resides in Maryland with his wife Stacy, their diabetic cat Katy, and rescue dogs Riley and Rosie.
In addition to full card analysis, which can be found on the Sales page, The Runaway Horse also features free picks, California racing stakes recaps, and Kentucky Oaks and Triple Crown series blogs and videos.
