Yes , I know. I've play horses before. Could of been 1.99 , could of been 1.05. the pool was 33k. 3rd race , first flat, double pool was 65k . Late pools are 50kish.

The double was very light at 186 for a buck. Someone had a $20 or $50 ticket

I used to think Westernmassboob was a better troll.

Another bad opinion.

Are you tying to imply there are other bettors in this game besides elder ones?

True that was a bit of a stretch Documented evidence shows 90% of horse bettors are between 50-79. That research was from 4 years ago so lowest age probably has gone up. Most guys 70 plus aren’t really handicapping like they did 20 years ago. They usually have an entry sheet and write down selections from handicappers. Very rare to see an elder with a DRF these days. Mostly because of cost and impatience to cap the races anymore.

i am going to take a guess and say that over 70% of all money bet into the pari mutual pools are bet by people 40 or less.

Like most of your statements, would be nice to be able to book the other side of that action.

I guess if NYRA starting carding a cockroach race daily you would want TLG to handicap that too? Why in the world would you want someone opining about something they admittedly know little about? They would be worth about the same as my picks. Turf hurdles are an anomaly.

Your credibility suffers when you keep trolling like this.

There have been some really ludicrous threads started at PA, but this one might take the cake.
