Peter Dresens strafed the field in Saturday&rsquo;s Grade 1 qualifier for the World Championship of Handicapping, putting up a total of $131.70, more than $32 clear of second place in the 17&#45;contestant field. In the process, Dresens picks up his second seat to the $1 million, no&#45;takeout finals, which will take place on Feb. 3&#45;4, exclusively at DRF Tournaments.Dresens fed into Saturday&rsquo;s contest, which normally costs $580 to play in, from a $95 feeder on Friday that advanced one in seven entries. On Saturday, Dresens started off with a bang. He was one of four players &ndash; a high number in a short field &ndash; to connect with No. 3 Seeking the Blue ($51.60 win&#45;place combined). &ldquo;A neon sign pointed to the 3,&rdquo; Dresens explained. &ldquo;Trained by [Christophe] Clement, a second&#45;time starter, she was a $450,000 yearling with four workouts since the debut, and good stats all around for the connections.&rdquo;Adding to the appeal was the fact that the horse projected to be on the lead. &ldquo;[NYRA analyst] Andy Serling had mentioned that there appeared to be inside&#45;type track bias,&rdquo; Dresens continued. &ldquo;I&rsquo;ve been paying more attention to bias since reading Mike Maloney&rsquo;s new book &lsquo;Betting With an Edge.&rsquo; The lesson here for me is to be far more cognizant of earlier happenings on a card prior to the contest events. It&rsquo;s not always easy to do, especially in multi&#45;track tournaments, but I&rsquo;m going to try.&rdquo;His next hit came two races later with No. 8 Rich Mommy in Gulfstream&rsquo;s seventh. &ldquo;This was a classic angle for me,&rdquo; said Dresens. &ldquo;A lightly raced, improving 3&#45;year old, second off a 10&#45;week layoff with a best&#45;ever Beyer number in the first race back.&rdquo;When Rich Mommy moved on the turn, split horses, and pulled away on the stretch, Dresens was in business. In the next race, he caught place points, and then zoomed to the stratosphere in Tampa&rsquo;s seventh with No. 9 Cuestion de Tiempo in a 2&#45;year&#45;old maiden special weight.&ldquo;This was the clincher,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;Cuestion de Tiempo was making his second start for Ignacio Correas. His first race at Churchill was poor, but he has huge grass breeding. He also had five high&#45;quality local works.&rdquo;After he came through, Dresens knew he could play more defensively. &ldquo;I eliminated any horse 7&#45;2 or lower from consideration and concentrated on horses between 6&#45;1 and 15&#45;1 who I felt had a decent shot,&rdquo; he said.He was pretty much able to coast in from there.
