By the way Handi, thanks for the nice endorsement, it was a pleasure meeting you!

its a long day for me, i didn't mean to report the wrong win. i saw the 4 and thought it was a touchdown and i went back and see that it was an alternate if there was a scratch, but i see there wasn't one. nice it anyway. i had the exacta for $1.00. thank you for the numbers

Lambo: You are absolutely right! There will always be good and not so good days, so yesterday at $2.65 R.O.I. on our "favorite busters" sheet including a 7/5 shot in the 6th at Oaklawn that we took a stand against nearly running dead last, was one of those GREAT days. Our biggest concern is to maintain that 115% overall R.O.I. level that we have achieved on both sheets since our 30 day free monitoring introduction to PA members here that took place during the month of December 2009.......

Thanks for your ongoing interest!

Boomer

A lot of us could post the big score....It is not limited to a single handicapper.

Glad to see someone hit it.

Lambo: With this in mind, I thought it only fair to report the complete wagering stats from last week's sheets:


For the week of March 10 to March 14 inclusive:

Exactas: ($1 Unit)
=========================================
Invest: $890
Return: $849.70

Trifectas: ($1 Units)
===========================================
Invest: $3770
Return: $6481

Win: ($2 wager per Spot Play)
=============================
Invest: $182
Return: $194


Place: ($2 wager per Spot Play)
===============================
Invest: $182
Return: $190.70

These returns obviously don't include any rebates that some of you are receiving as well............

of course you know the problem we are having is the rebate on racknet trarcks are all only 2%. and alot of the winning plays took place in oaklawn, that is probably your best track for the favorite buster.

i will tell you with normal rebates you will win these plays as stupid as 6 horse boxes look at first glance. i have seen the plays long enough to admit that they are very consistant.

personally i have been using the spot plays as a guide and have done better than your numbers indicate

Oaklawn is true, but Delta and Tampa Bay Downs (non-tracknet tracks) seem to do well also. The common denominator is that each of these tracks offer full fields which is imperative to the success of the "favorite buster" plays.......

this sounds to good to be true, but within 5 minutes they hit the 6th at oaklawn ex--$450 $1 tri $1029

the last race @ new york ex--$160 $1 tri $2300

someone asked me why i am posting. the answer is that they are giving me the numbers for free as long as i report the truth of what they are doing. no question they are winning. the $64k question is am i winning with them. the answer is no because i am to stupid to bet them myself because i will alway's be a non-beleiver in anyone elses stuff but my own

they have some kind of a program that is blowing my mind with first time starters. that is really the game that i am in. they wind up with competetive runners consistantly with those.

out of regular plays today so far they had 2 winners, a $10 and a $3.60 for a losing return on those so far.

I have a better idea...why doesn't Boomer simply post his picks for free here for a few days...give something back to the folks here and get the word out without looking like a redboarder or annoy my paying advertisers when they email me and ask why boomer is getting all this free publicity...

How about it?

Mike: I certainly don't mind giving them to PA members to review from time to time. Remember, I gave 'em to PA members FREE for 30 Days during the month of December, and I'll do it this weekend (Fri-Sun) the same way: Go to my website below and request them via email. That's the way I do it, and they go out each day via email around 12 noon EDT.

Hi All,

I gave these a try (favorite-busters & spot plays) last week based on the recommendations on this board, and let's just say they didn't work out so well for me. The spot-plays had an .86 roi and I haven't calculated the favorite-busters, but I believe they were probably up after hitting a very large trifecta on Sunday at Aqueduct. I'll write a detailed post about my results with these when I get some more time next week.

The spot plays seem to be mostly lower-priced horses that do hit for a fairly good percentage. It's pretty hard to keep a positive ROI going playing so many short-priced horses. There were numerous winners in the $3.00-$5.00 range during my week, and a few in the teens but nothing higher than that.

The favorite-busters involve huge trifecta and exacta boxes.....upwards of almost the whole field on some occasions minus the favorite. I played these for four days and absolutely got ripped, then gave up on them the last day and they popped a big one of course. Boomer says this is all by design, and they are looking to beat vulnerable favorites which I totally agree with. It was just really hard for me mentally to do this as even though I'm a spread-player, I never ever spread like that deep. I do this for a living, so bankroll is not a problem for me, but the drawdown on these plays would get most players and make the rest of us sweat big-time.

That said, Boomer told me both services are running at the 1.10-1.15 level since inception which is fantastic if true. I have zero doubt that they do hit some big licks on these exotics the way they play. Most of us probably like to take a little more of a stand, so I had to discontinue the service as I just hated to lose any more money on stuff that I didn't come up with on my own, or handicapped the race differently.

Boomer seems like a good guy, and maybe these things are good as gold. I would pay way more than he's asking if they are anywhere in the black over a long period of time. Kind of wished I had just got the service during the trial, or just bought them and watched for a couple of months before losing so much of my own cash. The one thing I would say is that if you are thinking about going this route have a very large bankroll and a lot of patience. The big one will probably be coming but if you play trifectas or supers you might burn through some cash before they hit.

boomer's a good handicapper, IMHO. For the FL Derby I "think" he had Rule, Radiohead and Ice Box.

I don't think anyone here has said he's not a good handicapper.
