Red face Top Horse Analytics: 01/03/2018 The End

Effective immediately, race picks and results will no longer be published at Pace Advantage or anywhere else for that matter. As some of you may know, I spend several hours each racing day to bring them to PA and my site. I just need to spend more time concentrating on my retirement, especially travelling to wild places with little or no Internet.

I intend to stay on PA because the members have a wealth of horse racing knowledge and are willing to share it, some with gusto. I've learned a lot here and was able to apply some of it to Top Horse Analytics over the years. Thanks for that but as you know, overcoming the takeout and breakage is very difficult.

Thanks for your understanding.

John

john - thank you for all you did and may I be the first to say that you will be missed. There comes a time when you need to say enough and start truly enjoying the wonders of this world before they or you are gone. You may find it hard to find a place with no internet as it seems to be everywhere but there are still a few hidden acres out there. Kind of like that commercial where people are driving off road and keep checking there phone to see if there is service. They keep driving until they reach a spot with no service available and that is where they pitch their camp.I am looking forward to my retirement in the years ahead and to traveling to Wyoming to try to find an area where there is a highway that could have been built many years ago by the army air corp, of which my father was a member after the war. He always wanted to go back there some day and used to tell us it was the most beautiful place he had ever seen. He never did make it back but I want to bring some thing of his and a little patch of dirt from his and my mom's grave site and place it somewhere so he can finally make it back there. It is something I have always promised myself I would do. I wish you the best and hope there are many adventures out there for you. When you pass a cell tower along the way drop a note to all of us here and let us now what you have been up to. Till then, happy trails.

Thanks, Vigors. Your persistence helped move the bar, so to speak.

Thanks, Bennie. I know a few places where you're off the grid, generally in lightly populated valleys. I'll be checking in once in awhile.

John,

You were a fixture while I visited daily over the past few years. It's good you have your priorities in order and it is also good to hear that you'll still be hanging out here.

Best wishes and thank you.

Thanks AOP. Those "W" horses would shock once in awhile, eh?
