Well, we head into the final week, and we're happy where we stand : Just $10 below the breakeven point, at about our usual 21% win rate, and crushing it in the beatable favorites category. Not really enthused with today's card ( a bit chalky, with no beatable favorite's to…
Solid day at the office for us yesterday, as we had 2 winners, 2 seconds, and 3 thirds ( one of them at 29-1 ). Only 2 favorites were among our 8 selections, proving that value can, in fact, be found. With three days left, we inch closer to profitablity,…
"Don't call it a comeback---I've been here for years !"--- L L Cool J, Mama Said Knock You Out That's how I felt after we knocked the first race outta the park yesterday, to the tune of $49, along with a $300 exacta box. Oooofa. We bookended things with a…
Heading out to Far Hills, N.J. today, for my first ever "Fair Meeting". Apparently this is held on someone's farm. Seven big steeplechase races, 30,000+ people, and NO betting ! Taking 3 trains and a bus each way to get there, but ya'll know how much I love the jumpers…
Don't feel like talking stats or being cute today. Apprentice bug rider Juan Saez passed away last night after a spill at Indiana Downs. ( He also rode at Keeneland. ) If you win ( or lose ) a couple of bucks today, feel free to send a 5 spot…
Skunked like Pepe' le Pew, we were, yesterday. Our closest coronary was when we had the lead in the 6th race with our 31-1 top choice just strides before the wire, and got nabbed. Dems da breaks, and we look to close out the week on a winning note today.…
Well, while we didn't "shock the world" yesterday, we did show some solid signs of turning the corner with a 10: 2-4-1 record on the day. ( One of those 2nds was the olllll' "Led before the wire/2nd at the wire/led after the wire" tricks. )  Favorites continue to come…
Uh ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......we're officially in a slump. Just one winner in the last two days. But like I've said before, you have to go with the ebbs and tides of this game. For example : We're still hiiting at a 22.9% rate. about a point and a half ahead of our…

I had said at the onset, that I thought Keeneland would have it playing a bit slow, benefitting closers, as they…
Great day of racing yesterday ( just not for us ! ). We started out by winning the opener on an amended selection ( $12 ), and caught the cold exacta ( $24 ) as well, but that was pretty much it for the day. Our bad beat was when…
