: : : : : I have always noticed that sometimes you will assign a horse the some exact # several races in row. Are you saying that horse ran the same effort 4 or 5 times in a row without deviating at all?..thanks
: : : : No. The efforts varied wildly. He wants us to think they were the same because he hates us.
: : : Alydar,
: : : You are a wild man! Are you sure you didn't grow up in Brooklyn ?
: : : Nunzio
: I have never even been to Brooklyn, but people
: like you and your dad make me wish I lived there.
: Thanks for the kind words, my POP had me reading
: the form as soon as I could read text books,
: mom wasn't too happy though...
: What did you think of Devon Deputy in
: last sundays San Luis Rey HCP if you saw it ?
: I made an above average win bet on him because
: he looked like an extreme overlay at 6-1. I thought
: he should have been 3-1. CIRO at 3-5 was
: puzzling. When Blueprint beat me by a nose,
: I heard my POPs voice saying "...you should
: always put a few bucks to place so you don't
: get nothing in return for a good handicapping job..."
: Maybe I'll eventually learn that....
I don't like to discuss specific horses. If I do it before a race, it affects my betting. If I do it after a win, I feel guilty. If I enjoyed doing it after a loss, I wouldn't be human.
I agree with your dad about the importance of savers, but I rarely bet a horse to place. I love using the trifecta as a saver. More on this later...
