Good post...XLNT continuing topic...

There's always a "mystery" horse that the players are playing against. It's usually inflated by about 14-15% = another 6/1 shot in the race who isn't running.

There was an old DOS program Six Shooter

written by the late Richard Bauer (who used to post on this board)...that did EXACTLY what you have in mind.

I used it for many, many years. The beauty of the program is that it accepted either...

The slight fluctations in the pool are caused by breakage

In California, for example, the takeout on win bets is 15.3%.

Therefore to begin making a morning line, 115.3% is the base number for the field. The factor of breakage is approximately 1% per...

The one thing that jumped out in PP's was Closer Look

should be in all bold face type just as the Works line.

In the Form's new version, the Closer Look type font is okay, but they made a bad choice but using light face, which doesn't jump out and...

Are you using field size in your quotient?

Comparing a 7-8 horse field to one of, say, 10-11 is like apples to oranges in regards to impact value.

Thanks for the kind words about Turfday...

I was the proud brainchild behind the concept. I am hoping that TwinSpires and/or Bris wants to work with me to revive it.

Your comments to them might help.

I can pretty much confirm rumor that P. Val set to ride at Del Mar

I was just as shocked as everyone else, but this is from a very reliable source.

"Stuck" horses

Since entries in most places are taken far enough in advance, I found out the morning linemakers often get wind of horses that are "stuck." Trainers who entered their horse and would like to get out...

Hollywood Park's handle vs. Monmouth's handle this past Saturday

This was brought to my attention. I don't follow the handle on any circuit, let alone for comparative purposes. But I surely found this interesting and wanted to share it with the board.

Are daily doubles, Pick 3's or Pick 4's vertical or horizontal bets?

I always thought that the bets within a race... win/place/show/exacta/trifecta/superfecta are horizontal bets and that the doubles, Pick 3's or Pick 4's (and Pick 5's and Pick 6's) are vertical bets....

The Enola Gay is on the runaway...targeting USC

Fueled up and ready for takeoff. I gotta feeling that by 2 p.m. (Pacific) or 5 p.m. (Eastern) there are going to be some very happy college football fans as long as they aren't aligned with USC.

He's one celeb that I can say I knew very, very well

I shared a box with John and Marty Ritt in the 80's at Del Mar. This is way before they remodeled Del Mar. Spent many an afternoon talking about just about everything. Owned a couple of horses...

How does the sample size work with these par products?

Having not used a product that contains pars, generally, how far back does the sample size go and are races for colts & geldings grouped together with fillies & mares, etc. ?

I actually want to know if I should be buying something I'm missing out on

Although I don't post that often here, I've been around long enough to understand that sincerity is always looked upon with skepticism on this board.

Example: Today's Racing Digest
