    Perhaps, NYRA did listen to my TWEET. I suggested that one of the experts should give a .50 cent pick 4 that cost closer to $9 than $40 - $60. I also think NYRA should tell people in NJ can't bet through NYRA.

    Paul Deluca lost his $40 pick 4 in the second and 4th legs. Frank Miramahandi made it to the last leg and lost his $9 pick four when his horse finished second in the 10th race at Saratoga. Who plays $40 to $60 on .50 cent pick 4's every day?

    After 5 days at Saratoga. Paco Lopez no wins or seconds. Joe Bravo one win. I think he has 1
    third? Jockey colony is to deep for the Monmouth guys to get any decent amount of live horses.

    Wife agrees with me on Paco & Bravo. It is BETTER to be the Big Fish in a little pond, than a little fish in the big ocean. Have been tempted to bet on Monticello all afternoon. Fortunately, my left hand would not let my right hand do it. Going out until 4 when NYRA show is on to avoid temptation.

    netsfan3 Mile tracks are not my forte. The Meadowlands became more speed favoring when they reconfigured the track around 2012. I did bet one horse at Georgian Downs last night. But, the 5/8ths tracks also offer the come from behind horses a better chance. I bet it out of boredom. Only paid $2.60. I know there will be a lot of favorites tonight at Grand River. But, I'm going to watch the betting before making any decisions. Maybe, fool around with some .20 cent trifectas with a couple of longshots behind a favorite. I get the program for free at Grand River website. Good luck at the Red Mile.

    Travis Cullen paid only $26,000 for two NY horses that last raced at Yonkers for nice purses. They are running in the 4th and 9th races tonight at Grand River. My curiosity is immense. I simply have to see if Cullen got taken, or if he got a Hell of a bargain? Anyone able to figure the 2nd at Saratoga today? I haven't a clue.

    netsfan3 They refunded money on the 2 horse in 4th race, broken equipment.

    Beach Terror got nailed at the wire after being pressured for the full mile at 8/5. Fortunately, the NETSFAN was watching the pools on TVG. Played the horse to place, paid a juicy $3.80. Was hoping for a bit more to place. Strange betting patterns on the race. May fool around with
    some .20 cent trifectas now.

    netsfan3 I finally joined TVG about 6 months ago. I watch the pools very closely and try to bet as close to race going off as possible. I thought he would click down to even money. He only went down to 8/5. But, it was obvious that he was going to pay close to even money for place. True, sometimes a horse will break or will be pressured to go to fast early. But, I do find the trotters to be much easier to handicap and more consistent than the flats. Was just looking at the 3rd race Wednesday at Saratoga past performances through the trainer (Linda Rice). 5 1/2 furlongs on the turf for maiden claimers $40,000. 16 Possible entrants. Totally impossible to make heads or tails out of a race like that. I worked most of my life as a cost accountant helping companies make sound decisions financially, legally, and morally. I
    like to follow Warren Buffett's 2 rules. Number 1 , try not to lose money. Rule Number 2, Always follow rule number 1. I really believe we should all try to help each other in the stable. I try to do that. I'm not going to change because a few don't like something I post. Have a great day. Celebrating our 36th Anniversary today. Time has flown since 1981.

    Step right up. Whose going to be the first to claim they handicapped the $232 horse that won the first at Saratoga?

    The way my good friend BIGLIAR952 has been betting the last couple of years, he hasn't got two cents left to add to any horse racing conversation. Maybe, his brother THUNDERMOUNTAIN will loan him a $10 spot so he can bet BEACH TERROR tonight at GRAND RIVER?

    netsfan3 As you well know I sold all my Mylan stock at around $70 a share or
    more. Bought some back at around $45, and am still holding. Sold all my GE at $30 a share, and all my KO at around $43.50. I trade within my I.R.A. Mylan is a buy at less than $39 a share. But, I like around 65% of people are not comfortable with the direction the Country is
    taking. Yes, people looking for a big score at the track often end up broke. But, if one bets sensibly you can possibly have a great time and win a few bucks. I haven't smoked since 1968. Don't drink to excess. Or drive like a friggin maniac. Tomorrow is my 36th wedding anniversary. Would love to take my wife to a restaurant tomorrow. But, alas. My bridge makes eating difficult. Will have to settle for take out. Jim Marohn Jr. won the first race at Pocono at $15.

    I fell asleep early on Saturday night. Does anyone know how much money was burned up on ARROGATE in the win, place and show pools? Going to TWITTER to find out what all those who said he was wonder horse are now saying?

    netsfan3 Looks like Del Mar just avoided a minus pool. Reminds me of the time Kelso came to Monmouth Park a long time ago. Running in a 6 furlong sprint off the bench. He was there for a tune up. Fans foolishly made him around 4/5. Charged late to finish 4th. Betting the other 4 to show would have at worst lost you $3.80 in total. What is it they say about a fool and his money?

    Tough card Monday night at GRAND RIVER RACEWAY. #1 BEACH TERROR 2/1 Bob McClure driving will try to wire the field once again in the 4th race. Don't think the 8 horse can beat him to the front from the outside. Paco Lopez no victories in 3 days at the Spa. Some better mounts on Monday.

    ladyjumpers You know me. I'm betting it.

    the 4rth at monmouth had to be the most crooked race, 4 horses two longshots were 1 2, jose ferrer just sat on the horse never went to the whip he yanks the favorites every time in a short field

    JonuguyII Just hope the #1 counts as a life- saver !

    Interesting condition in the 5th. I remember when I started betting and following more in the late 80's early 90's that Philly Park would have races for PA and NJ breds together because they also owned Garden State Park and would have them when they were dark.

    Not to belabor the point but for my two cents I have to agree with tote and danna101 the object of the contest is get in the payoff place be it 123 there is no consolation for playing favorites to say I finished the contest I prefer to stab early. If I hit fine if not I don't waste my time playing 4 months to end up out of the money anyway. The strategy hasn't worked well for me the last few years but I did cash at the big m and Santa Anita the atrocious short fields at Monmouth have really benefitted the chalk players but give credit to the leaders

    gavin Thanks NETSFAN3. Enjoy your posts and your picks put a little change in my pocket. I'm buying Holiday weekend when I join you all on the shore to pick up my check,lol.

    Well I see that the latest WONDER HORSE ARROGATE went to the poop house in that short field. Maybe, posting winners of any sort is not as easy as a lot of people claim. I think DANNA101
    should read "CASEY AT THE BAT". I WILL TRY TO POST ANOTHER GRAND RIVER WINNER by noon Monday.

    gavin I played 1,4,5 exacta box. SOOOOOO many times I hear the second coming has arrived. Liften, who does this for a living, should know better! Give me Tiznow anyday.

    Well it looks like we lost BLOWUPTHETOTE today. Don't know when Remington contest begins ? But, his style of play is much more suited for that track. With 4th place finishes, added shoes, and escapes from the barn it a longshot players dream.

    netsfan3 TOTE: I could care less about you either winning or losing on any of your bets. What I don't like is your vulgarity, constant bragging, and your tough guy attitude. This is a friendly stable area to post opinions on horse racing. I have never complained to the administrators on some of your over the top posts. I don't play to win this contest, as everyone knows. You have promised on many occasions not to post on my comments any longer. That would be fine, with most everyone else. Yes, I played sports in high school. But, we were taught to give 100% all the time. If you don't finish first all the time it is no big thing. I will continue to help others, whenever I can. I doubt either of us is going to change our basic philosophies of life at our current age.
