Have you thought about starting 1 race earlier & playing the Empire 6?
Here's what I'll be doing in the E6:
I'm going to start the 1st 2 legs with the 2 heavy favorites and try not to get cute in there. Then I'll start spreading. In the 8th I'll be going 2 Chads (not the same as your 2 Chads. but we agree on 9). 9th -the 2 favorites & Asmussen because Julie's been training so well, then if I make it to the final 2 legs a ton of horses.
I'm going 2/1/4,8,9/1,3,4/4,5,6,7,8,9/1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,12 Cost $97.20
People are avoiding the E6, thinking it won't pay anything because of the 1 ticket rule, but they pay 75% of the day's pool to the winners & it costs a lot less than playing the P5.
