: : : : Am I crazy or is there really very little relationship between 10's at Phila. and the Medlnds. and 10's at Aqueduct? It seems to me that horses running consistant numbers in N.Y. will beat horses running the same numbers at Phila., any N.J.track, and probably WO too, almost every time. Don't get me wrong I love the TG figures and think you produce a superior product for the N.Y. tracks and I'm sure that your numbers for the tracks I mentioned are very helpful when playing just those tracks. But my long experience tells me that a 10 at a N.J. track is just not as fast as a 10 at Aqueduct. I would be interested in how others of you feel about this.
: : : :: Maybe the differences are due to pace?
: : TG--I keep watch on this constantly and I absolutely, unequivocally reject that. Anyone who wants to check this can check not only going forward, but back as well--look at what figures horses have earned at different tracks. In fact, as I pointed out a couple of weeks ago, a bunch of horses that ran well Thanksgiving weekend were shippers from Med/Del etc. that looked great on TG. I would love to see examples of your claim, especially before the fact. TGJB
: Jerry, I appreciate your taking the time to respond. However, my intention is not to get into a pissing match with you as I am a regular user of TG and am a strong advocate of your product. I think the figures for most tracks are fine and are sufficiently equal. I would make an effort to point out to you what I am suggesting but as I tried to indicate this is a sense I get over many years of playing the races in N.Y. It would be hard to just start emailing you with an example of what I'm saying everytime such a race arises. I will,however, do so, after the first of the year to try and make my point as this is prime timeof the year for what I am suggesting [and before the races are run]. Suffice it to say I'll take a consistent 11,12 N.Y. horse every time over a Del,WO,or N.J. horse running 10's. Nice holidays to everyone.
Steven, are you just talking about horses shipping into New York facing horses who have been racing in New York or are you making a more general observation? SeaB.
