My New Year's Wish List ! ( In no particular order ) 10 - The abolishment of horse slaughter in the United States, as well as the export of said animals for similar purpose. 9 - For all betting to be cut off two minutes to post. 8 - Elimination…
I want to wish everyone a VERY happy, healthy, and safe New Year's Eve. As I am wont to do on the big holidays here, I will once again impress upon you the importance of not even having ONE drink and getting behind the wheel. Not only can you lose…
Back on track yesterday with a profitable 11:3-1-1 record on the day, a successful "Beatable Favorite", a "Rolling" late Pk. 5 ( 3x3x3x3x3=$324 for a deuce, or less if you want ) that came back $6,022 ( and a few hundred in consos ), and a rolling Late Pk. 4…
Just one for us yesterday as we continue to look for our groove. Jai Alai will be calling soon enough ! Great new book just in time for the holidays put out by C.J. Johnsen of Kentucky Downs entitled "Ride to Win", an inside look into the jockey's craft. It…
Just a chalky winner on the day for us yesterday, but those that play our "unders" were somewhat rewarded, as five of our 2nd choices got home at payouts of $28, $11, $4, $6, and $8. It ain't much, but it kept our rollers rolling ! Great new book just…
Just a couple of moderately priced winners yesterday, but at least we were fast and firm. Local trainer Kirk Ziade was suspended for SIX ( count 'em ) SIX years yesterday for a laundry list of drug positives. I'm shocked---SHOCKED---as he was only 22 for 45 at the last meeting.…
Interesting day for us on Sunday, as we had a pair of winners, one of them paying $36, and a TOUGH 2nd at 50-1, where we most likely would've won, had a horse not bolted to the 10 path in the race, opening up a hole for the eventual 3/4…
Got a bit on track yesterday with a three bagger and two cold exactas ( $24 & $14 ), but there were still a couple of races taken off the lawn, and we've yet to have a fast/firm day after 6 cards. Anyone have either of those bombs ? (…
Another disjointed day for us here yesterday, as they were all off the turf, then our "off turf" selections began the day on a track labeled "good" ( As we amended our column from a 737 enroute to Oklahoma ), then the track was changed to "fast", then a flock…
I want to begin today's column by alerting you to a rule that came into play here. Story: With about 25 minutes to post, I put in a late pick 4 ticket, using 4 horses in the 9th race ( a turf deal ). I left my computer, and returned…
