If nothing else it should prove interesting all the same..It's out there anyway, why not make it more convenient ...

Anything horsey, on a daily basis, is a good-read, as far as I am concerned...

I look forward to checking up on things each day... Like a journal..Fun of following, if nothing else..

Good Deal EMD !!! ...

All I know is if I posted this post (yours) in the Every day NYRA thread, I'd be banned. You seem to do it every 13 1/2 seconds.
You'd get banned? Now you're playing a martyr? Youve had free reign for years. You've stirred it up for years.

You made this board unreadable and driven away posters for years. If I get flagged for being honest about your behavior than so be it. But don't insult CJ or PA by pretending you're somehow monitored more closely than anyone else.

Maybe they're tired of your act? They wouldn't be the first and certainly not the last.

Racing is all I know and do and honestly, it has been losing me.

I'm putting a lot of the fault on me just changing, but surprisingly, as I've noted around here, when I come here on those such days and read everyone's take on the card and I know I've got a contest waiting on me - I can kick in a little reserve of adrenaline to persevere slightly. Maybe there's something to be said for 'the industry' trying some more of these contests even if only as loss-leader type interest generators just to make sure you don't lose a friggin' racing in-bred like me any more than necessary.
You know I've always had a ton of respect for you. Racing lost me awhile back. I've found some of my passion again and I'd love to shoot the crap about races with people. Especially you if you're interested.

But I cannot in good faith participate in something like this with such an ulterior motive. This is an attempt at a gotcha on certain public handicappers ROI. A vendetta that apparently will never be over.

This'll be my last post in this thread. But I'm serious...pm me anytime you want to talk specific races.

There is no ULTERIOR motive Dahoss. I tried to improve on things and this came to mind a few weeks back. Nothing more nothing less. Frankly, again, I think this is something track marketing people should be doing anyway, to promote the game. So I leveraged the opportunity to do it here.

I'm serious, Id love to see you play. I never have. Id pay to see it. Wait , I am

OK. You win . I lose. You're always right. I'm always wrong.

War over.

Andy Serling
Race 1 3 - 4 - 1 - 2
Race 2 2 - 8 - 6 - 7
Race 3 3 - 4 - 1/1A - 5
Race 4 4 - 2 - 3 - 6
Race 5 7 - 6 - 1 - 5
Race 6 8 - 5 - 7 - 6
Race 7 4 - 8 - 3 - 7
Race 8 3 - 5 - 7 - 1
Race 9 3 - 7 - 9 - 2

FULL CARD SELECTIONS FOR TLG 3/31/17

So both cappers selections are up. Who will lead after day 1?

I suspect it will be a small leaderboard after today, as others will chime in on the weekend. Who will get a headstart?

As for tracking, I kindly ask everyone to do something similar to this.

In the morning (or night before, 2 days before), post your picks. Be specific please. Name the horse and give the #. If you have an ambiguous selection (pick 2 horses in same race but don't state who the top selection is OR give a name out with a mismatching #, it won't count)

When the races are over or later that night, please simply tabulate as follows (or in any similar fashion):

Quote your original selections for the day and then total everything:


4 picks. 2/4 Bet $8, winners paid $20 and $5, return of $25.

New totals: 4/12 Bet $24, Return of $42

Believe me, it's so easy. I did it for 3 1/2 months in the other thread. Only takes 60 seconds. Others will probably verify your math and accuracy, so it works itself out.

I will create a leaderboard almost daily as well.

JHS, I have no idea how the laughing emoticon got to the top of my reply to you. I must have been groggy this morning. Wasn't meant to be there. My apologies.
