It's a $20million boondoggle. ....people spending thousands for a ticket that could be had for less than $50. The math didn't make any sense: you have a $4million carryover with $16million NEW money wagered?

Agreed. That was pretty much impossible to use.

Only logical way to have hit that would be on a ticket that singled a couple horses and mashed the 'all' button...

You do realize that both 8 and the 9 had one of the lowest Pick 5 payouts.

GP is more crooked than Penn! The home of falling jockeys and horses never getting out of the gate.

That was bullshit, was alive with 8 9 12 14 on a $153 ticket, that start was uh just a little strange. In retrospect 5 wasn't that crazy but would he really have gotten an easy lead if 8 and 9 broke OK.

Was fun for a little while...

Vic is the man!




The 8 would have likely won, had he broke from the gate.

9 was a closer who needed the pace to fall apart, but you never know...


5 had the 3rd highest TimeformUS early pace number. Last race he quit after a hot pace (a collapsing pace where the 12 Apollo made a premature move, and 15 Francois lumped up to win).
However, the 5 wasn't fast enough on paper to win this or survive the expected pace. His only positive was working through his conditions, but that comes with tougher competition.
using 2 singles and 'ALL' in the last race could be accomplished for around $150 or so. Even with hindsight, not sure if that was a smart ticket to add to your plays.

Had the 8 won, I'm pretty sure my ticket would not have returned the 1,200 that it cost.
It's a little bit of a mental barrier to get over, but you do still have to 'emphasize' the public's singles and re-punch a ticket or 3 with your selections and their singles. It's already an expensive ticket, so you get some cognitive dissonance there. I have a better feel for it now. Hopefully don't forget before the next 4M carryover.
