I donít believe I have ever posted on the forum that I like my horse in a race. As I mentioned gamer was going to be a pony for my daughter if she didnít show me signs of being a race horse. In regards to yesterdayís race two forum members reached out to me and asked if I had a chance all you had to do was look at proper princess record at GP and she had a good chance. I also do not bet on my horses.

Just give us the 100-1 and up live ones and we'll be fine

Seriously though, congratulations on your success. Hope you get the winner's share next time.

lost all chance with Proper Princess in the first today as the jock got shuffled back when squeezed by the 4 and the 2. Gamer Girl had the race won today but the loose horse caused the jock to get a bit cautious and the big favorite(dropping in from a 50k claimer)passed us. I think the odds were a bit less than 105/1 somewhere in the 7/2 range. She is one big lady who should eventually win this maiden event. For those who look at key races the winner of the last race Gamer was in went on to an easy score in a nw2l with a 70 Beyer last week....

She ran a good race today. Thought she had it turning for home. At least you got a paycheck.

That loose horse seemed to distract both the rider and her. I think you are right shes at the right level and should win sometime. Good luck with her. I will keep an eye out for her and cheer.

Since she is a work in progress 3 to 4 weeks for her next race will try 5 1/2f as well. Jockey came back and said the 3 horse was a major distraction.

Alas...the book proved to be just an expensive "advertisement" for the author's newly-formed website "Equiform"...which sold a set of speed and pace figures called "The XTRAS". Since the book seemed utterly worthless to anyone who wasn't an Equiform customer...I tossed it aside and never touched it again for another 15 years.

In April of this year...I became a subscriber to the speed and pace figures of Jim Cramer, of HDW fame. The more I read about Jim Cramer's figures...the more they seemed to resemble those figures called "The XTRAS", in that long-forgotten book of 15 years ago. I quickly retrieved that book from the "forgotten pile"...and read it again, with Jim Cramer's HDW figures as an accompaniment. It was an eye-opening experience that will forever influence my handicapping from now on...and I mention this in this thread because horses such as the one featured here will never again be ignored by the handicapper who remembers the wise words of Cary Fotias...the author of the aforementioned book "Blinkers Off". And NO...one needn't be a HDW customer in order to utilize Fotias's handicapping ideas. Cj's speed and pace figures will do just as well, I am sure.

Sadly...Cary Fotias passed away at the young age of 60, in 2013. I owe him a debt of gratitude...and you will too, if you read his handicapping book and heed his advice...as an accompaniment to your speed/pace handicapping.

fotias work has carried on with the new name of predicteform.....you can read the book online if you register at the site.

Again this was the lowest level maiden claimer offered at GP and not the first or last time you will see a 99/1 shot make it into the exacta or trifecta or super or even win.
I had a NY bred who was 89/1 and at that time set off the largest trifecta and exacta ever at Aqueduct. And I didn't bet a dime on her...go look up Contemptuous...
Fast, I'm glad your girl ran second at HUGE. He's not contemptuous. The real truth is he's just whining because he didn't have her!!
