: : I just found Thorograph's web-site around Derby day and I am certainly impressed. I am new to the world of speed figures though like most everyone who plays the game even asa hobby I have heard of the "The Sheets". Just wondering regarding your product. Why are the handicappers who pick at Churchill, Sportsman, Belmont and Hollywood allowed to keep their jobs? Or is it just that your numbers are bad. These guys rarely , if ever, pick any winners. Please let me know the last time a winner was picked at either Hollywood Park or Churchill Downs. There were no winners at either track this week. And your Preakness pick. Did we need your so called sophisticated data to come up with a bad favorite like Menifee. And than to listen to all the past posters talk about how they loved Badge. Enough to make any sane man or woman tune you guys out for good. I'll stick around for the laughs and to find out just how long it will be before you handicappers pick a winner at either Hollywood or Churchill. The over under is 7. 7 days from now!
: >>>>Last time I looked, Thoro-Graph supplies the data, and the handicapper uses that data in order to make a selection. If you're looking for someone else to pick them for you...you're a lost cause!
For the record, the day before helex posted (5\21) we put up 6 plays at Hollywood, 4 of which won. But BJ is right - we're trying to find overlays, which means not always picking the most likely winner - which in turn means strikeouts, and home runs like Preakness day. TGJB
