Top pick every race on pregame show ?

Top pick on simulcast race by race ?

I tabulated and got $16.98. But I am dealing in Canadian dollars.

There is video evidence regarding Serling's meet here. ROI must have been pretty huge. Although ever since that FOX special on the aliens at Roswell, I do not believe everything I see on video.

Nice to see Dominic Terry doing well.

Who can ever forget his brilliant 1-for-49 meet at Presque Isle Downs last year?

Much like milk, he comes in 2% ... and that at the early stages of PID '08 .. the home, year, and time of the five horse field.

Betting top pick to win

364 races

-7.4% ROI

Invest $728 Return $674

Betting top 2 picks to win

354 Races (I missed 1 day)

-16% ROI

Invest $1409 return $1190

Betting top 3 picks in a $1 exacta box

354 Races (I missed 1 day)

-12% ROI

Invest $2036 Return $1786

Data is after scratches. If one of his 4 picks was scratched the others moved up. It worked as much to his advantage as to his disadvantage. I would say scratches helped more than hurt his ROI in all 3 categories.Additionaly,if only 2 of his picks were left after scratches,I only charged him $2 for the exacta box. If only 1 pick was left after scratches,he didn't get charged for an exacta nor for having a 2nd pick.

Not accurate....but go for it. You missed a day? That's too funny. Which one pray tell?

Or, better yet, get a life.

The day I missed was filled in by CJ as far as your win bet return. So that category is accurate. I didn't have your 2nd or 3rd picks that day so cant tell for the other 2 categories but you're probably better off that way.

As far as getting a life,there wasn't much time wasted. I automatically had zeroes filled in all the categories and only adjusted when you hit maybe 2 or 3 races per day. Big deal.

I only undertook this because of the stupidity I kept hearing around here of how you are such a great handicapper. I think this little study proves otherwise,despite whatever dance you want to dance around it.
