On Saturday, Mr. Pick Four popped with the Late P4 for $502 on his $24 wager. Johnny don’t play babies but he did have the winner of the boys division in the Florida Sire Stakes for 3YOs, Mo Cash, $4.80. So it goes…

****

****

On Wednesday,  Dec. 13th, action players had an $18.00 when American Luxury won going away in the 4th. So it goes…

****

Last week (Dec. 6-9) we had only action play on Wednesday, and rain put us off $500 of prime plays on Friday and Saturday. So it goes…

On Wed. Nov. 29th our 4th race P3 went down in flames when Taipan’s Advantage stumbled at the start, then we called a nice late P3 but demanded favoritism from our single, didn’t get it and Outrank (the 2nd choice) won anyway. So it goes…

******

On June 30th, the smart money ruled the day (at least in the 6 races I dared to make selections) starting right off in Race 1 with an unlikely favorite from Javier Negrete, who was 0-41 with Shippers for the last seven years here in Oldsmar. We were spot on with the rest of them until, in Race 7, Dominguez popped with a 2-73 angle, the 2nd off the layoff, as the second choice in the wagering by less than a click, ripping the crotch out of our Late Pick 4. We scrapped our DD and Pick 3 in the 4th (both winners) via Twitter, over a lack of value. So it goes…

****

The final weekend, we had no action on Friday, missed the 6th DD by a half length on Saturday and missed one leg of the late Pick Four on Sunday (2nd naturally). That’s horseracing! So it goes…

****

The week of April 26th we made just a couple of bets and caught a $605 DD and a $1080 Exacta. Like to keep the momentum going for the final weekend of the regular meeting. So it goes…

****

Over the weekend of March 18 & 19 both of our plays choked. Our exacta ran 1,4 and our win was 3rd. I was ready to get even for the meeting on Bennett’s Angel Falls, but 2-1 looked too generous so I ratcheted back to play to ordinary status. So it goes…

****

On Saint Patrick’s Day, we were live to a $1139 late P4 when our runner scratched at post time, but as luck would have it, the favorite came through and we collected $$226.40 for our $36 play. So it goes…

****

****

On Thursday, the elusive 300 game eluded us no longer. We were 6-6 with our action and $$$ plays. That was long overdue. We caught all three wagers, the 3rd Exacta, the 4th DD and the 5th DD but it was a tough day to make money. We wagered $185 and collected a skimpy $377.50. So it goes…

****

On Wednesday, Feb. 22nd we had a couple of short winners but no action. So it goes…

****

*****

On Saturday, Feb. 18th,  the only chalky types to finish out of the bottom half of the field was the one that beat me. But there was one bright spot. Sonoma Crush at 43-1 in the 10th figured and finished 3rd returning $8.00. So it goes…

*****

On Friday , Feb 17th we had four more winners including the 3rd $6.40, 5th $5.40, 6th Exacta $25.80 and the 9th $3.20 but the real story is that Mr. Pick Four has clicked in four of the last five race days, yesterday in the early P4 for $182.70. He’s en fuego! So it goes…

****

On Saturday, Feb. 11th, we caught a trifecta (R2), two exactas (R10 & R11) and two Pick 3s (R11 & R12) and after all that maybe had enough money for a six-pack and a good cigar. The key in our big play missed by 2 lengths at 8-1. Mr. Pick Four had the late Pick Four returning $66.60 for his $9.00 wager. So it goes….

****

****

On Wed. Feb 8th, action players cashed in 2 of 4 with the $18 Exacta in R1 and the $82.60 Exacta in R3. Our R4 key horse won but the unders were long and didn’t come thru.

*****

Saturday, Jan. 28th – These tough beats are beginning to wear me down. Today, we were live to a $1261 ticket in the 3rd. We threw out the odds on favorite only to be beaten by an 8-1 shot. So it goes…

On Friday, we had the two paltry DDs in the 2nd and 3rd, but neither produced a profit. So it goes…

*****

On Wednesday, a late jockey change in the 9th had us off our play. So it goes…

*****

On Sunday, Our big straight exacta ran 2-1 and our big tri ran 2-1-3. So it goes…

*****

******

On Friday, Jan 20th we were 2-5 with our action plays, catching the short winner of the 3rd ($3.60) and the cold 8th race exacta box for $40.20. Our big money play ran 1-3 yet again. So it goes…

******

*******

On Saturday, Jan. 14th, we liked Be Nice or Leave, but not for 3-5, so we cancelled and it missed by one. Our other play, Bridle’s Holiday in the 8th, looked like he was inside Temple Grandin’s autism “Squeeze Machine” at the break and had no chance after that. We had bookend action winners today, the opener and the nitecap. So it goes….

********

On Friday the 13th, action players did fine when we had the winner of the 4th, $7.00 and the 6th race trifecta, $46.20. Our Exacta Key horses won four more races, but the unders failed as did our one big play on Boyce’s Super Soldier (the 2nd choice at $3.40-1).

********

On Wednesday, Jan. 11th, we backed Mr. Bennett’s Kizuna (again) and were smacked down by a couple of longshots. So it goes….

New Year’s Weekend I was down with the flu, and posted only three plays. We had short, drawing away winner Dynatail on Sunday. So it goes…

*********

*********

*********

On Friday, Dec. 23rd our $7 trifecta ticket missed by a length, but again, action players did well with two of my four action plays returning $7.20 for the win and $7.20 for the place in races 2 & 6 respectively. So it goes…

**********

On Wednesday, Dec 21st, both of our conditional wager plays failed to meet the condition, but action players cashed a $60 DD in the 4th (from two of only four other selections). So it goes…

**********

On Saturday, Dec. 17th we kept the rubber band tightly wrapped around the bankroll again. The next best thing to winning is not betting and watching your (would be) selections tank. So it goes…

**********

On Friday, Dec.16th it was nothing ventured, nothing gained (or lost), as we sat it out with action plays only. So it goes…

**********

On Wed., Dec. 14th was missed out on at least a $2000 return when our key horse won the 2nd race tri at $12.60-1 but we were necked out of the show position. So it goes…

***********

Saturday, Dec. 10th was not too shabby for my action players who cashed in 5 of 9 races, but one of my backed runners was 2nd and returned our $150 wager in full, while the other was 4th. So it goes…

***********

On Friday, we backed one ATB and it was 3rd. Follow us on twitter @tamselections for the late wager changes and/or cancellations. So it goes…

***********

On Wednesday, Dec. 7th, we wagered $300 on the 8th (mostly win) and missed by a neck, but our saver exacta returned $362.90. So it goes…

***********

On Saturday, 12/3, Cotillion Day did not go our way. We had a $6.00 Winner in the opener, a $20.60 DD in the 4th and a $17.70 Exacta in the Sandpiper. 3 for 8 on the day. Shakespeare taught us “This above all, to thine own self be true!” and we were, with adequate warning to subscribers of our frailties each year on this annual day that force feeds us ten baby races. So it goes…

***********

On Friday, 12/2 we were 3 for 6 with a $28 exacta in the 4th, a $46.60 winner in the 6th and a $5.00winner in the nightcap. There were two scratched plays today. So it goes…

************

The final weekend of the regular meeting our action plays were right there with multiple winners and a couple of exotics (including 3 of 4 in the $10K final Pick Four of the meeting) but our big plays failed to click yet again. It was that kind of meeting. So it goes…

**************

**************

Last week (4/6-4/10), our big plays let us down again, but our action plays were right there, so on Sunday, we bet all action plays on the 10 race card and had four winners and two seconds for a modest profit on our $1000 in wagers with action on four other longshots. So it goes…

***************

Last week (3/30-4/3) a mixed bag. On Wed. our win play missed by less than a length. On Friday, our bomb play took strong action and was 3rd at 4-1. Saturday, our $35 straight P3 ticket collapsed when Mr. Radar went down in flames at 3/5 odds. We had no action on Sunday with the foul weather. So it goes…

******************

Sunday, Feb. 28th was just heartbreaking. In the 2nd we wanted to make a DD wheel for a couple of hundred but the probable pay with the odds on favorite and our R3 choice was $5, killing any chance of a fruitful wheel. However, knowing it was vulnerable, I wanted to leave it out of the wheel and make a killing, making only a saver for win in R2 but I needed 8/5 to make it worthwhile but it wouldn’t budge from 3/2. Ergo, it was beaten and our choice won the 3rd handily and we missed out on the $35.40 DD pay (or $900). Feeling on, I trebled my win bet in the next race to $300 and watched it headed out of victory at 5/2. Another $1100 up in smoke. So it goes…

******************

On Saturday, our longshot exacta box in R5 ran first and last when Bank Float went +19 early, leaving our bomb to be far back and outrun. So it goes…

******************

On Wednesday, our play scratched and on Thursday our Race 4 exacta ran 1-3. So it goes…

*******************

The weekend of the 18th, 19th, 20th & 21st. On Thursday, our under in the 3rd race exacta paid $19.40 for the Win but our key runner folded up with 2 1/2 furlongs to run at $7-1. Friday in Race 7, we reduced our play by 67% when Guciardo’s piece was ice cold in the DD pool. King’s Tuesday led to the stretch at $12-1. Saturday we collected $613.80 on our $33 ATB play in race 3. We took a day off on Sunday. The card was awful. So it goes…

******************

On Wednesday, Feb. 17th our $400 play in the 4th was scrapped when they left JL Vargas in the irons and it was 3rd at 2-1, but we had a nice action play winner in the 6th, Jimmu $34.00 for the win. So it goes…

*****************

On Sunday, our key runner in the 7th exacta (our only play today) was going best of all in deep stretch but was a stride late in a blanket finish. So it goes…

*****************

On Saturday, we had luck with our action plays in R5 $166 Trifecta and R11 Winner $5.80, but our serious plays took the pipe. So it goes…

*****************

On Friday, we were necked out of a $1000 DD return in the R3 DD, but picked up $320 for the win in Race 4. So it goes…

*****************

On Wed. Feb 3rd our $100 R8 exacta wager returned $1000.80. Smart money on 12-1 ML runner in the 9th put us off that one and it romped. So it goes…

*****************

Over the weekend (Jan. 29-31) our R7 DD ran 2-1 on Friday, on Saturday we were off the odds-on favorite in R7 (and it was beaten but not by our choice), and on Sunday our $500 exotic play was scrapped when they were taken off the turf. So it goes…

*****************

On Wednesday, Jan.27th we were live to a nice DD in race 5 and a nice Pick 3 in race 7 after having both the 1st and 2nd runners in the 5th and 6th (at nice odds) before DB let us down at even money in the 5th and then Ness let us down with 3/2 favorite (and our 2nd choice scratched in the 7th). So it goes…

****************

Over the weekend, we backed off a play on Saturday when the board was much too generous and on Sunday our biggest play of the meeting ($450) was 5th after an uncharacteristically poor break (trailing early on the grass). So it goes….

Over the weekend, we had just three plays. On Saturday, our lock of the day, was soundly beaten in a boxcar $16K superfecta (over a good turf course). On Sunday our W & P play was 3rd by a 1/2 at $4.40-1. So it goes…

*****************

On Wednesday, Jan. 13th in the 3rd, our tweeted play returned $832.30. If you missed the tweet and went with the original play, you collected $1043.80. So it goes…

******************

On Sunday, Jan.10th, our solitary play in the 7th returned $7.20 for the win returning $180 but Ness and Bennett let us down failing to be up for even the show in a seven horse field and thereby costing us a few hundred more in winnings. We also caught the late Pick 4 for $53.00. So it goes…

******************

On Saturday, Jan. 9th, we made the right play in race 5 but it wasn’t to be after 10 year old Allie’s Event came up with a big effort off the long layoff to snatch it from our two top choices. So it goes…

******************

On Friday, Jan. 8th, we were off a couple of false favorites, and that is the only thing worth noting here. However, Mr. Pick Four caught the early Pick Four for $83 and change. So it goes…

*******************

A heartbreaking loss on Wed. Jan. 6th when Vinson’s piece in Race 6, Gray Beau at $42-1 (with impeccable ITM angle credentials) broke up at least a $1000 tri payoff when the gelding took it all beating our choices for win and place by less than a length. We had a 4,6/4,6/2 $25 tri ticket and the finish was 2/6/4. So it goes…

*******************

On Sunday, Jan. 3rd our R5 play met the condition by one thin dime and finished 4th. In R8 we caught a break when the condition was not met by one click and we saved $100. Ya win some, ya lose some. So it goes…

*******************

On Saturday,  the average odds of our top choices was $30-1 (and they ran as the odds said they would), but among our “unders” in the exactas we had 2 winners, 2 seconds and two 3rds. The way I play, it only takes one. So it goes…

********************

On New Year’s Day our $15 ATB play in race 1 returned $123. In race 5, we made the right play, but they subjected the favorite to extraordinary pressure throughout, but KOC’s FTS was up for 2nd at long odds. +$10 for the day. So it goes…

********************

On Wednesday, our three soft exotics returned a $59.50 profit. So it goes….

********************

On Saturday, Dec. 26th our play scratched and on Sunday, Dec. 27th we had a $9.80 winner in the 5th that produced a $285 profit. A handful of low wager speculative plays failed to a profit on Sunday. So it goes…

********************

I’m sick over Aldana Gonzalez’s $50-1 winner on Wednesday. She’s now 8-12 ITM with 2TS + Shortenups. Last week it was Scott Mckenzie’s FBK that burned us (both trainers in 2nd try with their respective angles at the meeting). That’s two that have slipped through the net now. Voyeurs note that the 2015-2016 Selections Archive is now current). So it goes…

********************

A tough weekend with nothing to show for our efforts. To add insult to injury, Scott McKenzie, who we invested $106 in on the FBK on Dec. 5th and lost, won easily on the FBK again and paid $39.20 on Sunday, while we passed him over. Gotta stick to the plan. So it goes…

********************

On Wednesday, Dec. 16th our race 1 conditional exacta box made the condition by just 2%, but ran 1-3 when big wakeup from Smock’s piece put the dud on it.  In the 4th we were headed out of a $886 return on our 10-11 exacta. Ouch! So it goes…

********************

On Saturday, Dec. 12th we were very disappointed that our choice (to just be in the money and the 2nd choice in the wagering) showed nothing and was OOM. It happens. Some jerk put all his eggs in today’s basket and was quite sore. Scared money never wins. That’s why the meeting is 92 days long. So it goes…

********************
On Friday, three speculative plays, all longshots and all finished in the middle of the pack. On the bright side, I sold the 50th copy of my book today! So it goes…
********************
On Wednesday, Dec. 9th our win wager in Race 9 failed to meet the condition (but won), but the remainder of our $55 wager returned $115.60. So it goes…

********************
On Saturday, Dec. 5th our exotic play in race 5 scratched when Hobbs (5) did not go. So it goes…
All the archived plays are public and can be found by clicking “Today’s Selections” and then when redirected clicking “2015-2016 Archive”.

*********************
On Friday, Dec. 4th, our top choice was uncharacteristically late for his own party, trailing early, but was rolling late but not timely enough. In any case a $64-1 shot broke up the whole shindig. So it goes…
**********************
On Wednesday, we needed the place to catch our saver tri in race one but had to settle for show. So it goes…

*********************
On Opening Day our solitary $100 play returned $225.80 in Race 4 (but damn there was late action on the winning combo so my weighted wager came up a bit short). So it goes…

********************

May 2nd – Day 89

*********************

May 1st – Day 88

On Friday our solitary play, a $40 straight exacta in the 10th returned $996. So it goes…

*********************

*********************************

April 24th-26th – Days 84-86

The chalk killed us this weekend, but Mr. Pick Four managed a modest profit when he had both Pick Four’s on Sunday. So it goes…

*********************************

*****************************

April 18th & 19 – Days 81 & 82

*****************************

April 17th – Day 80

On Friday, our selection won the 7th handily returning $4.20 for the win, but did not meet the condition by a couple of clicks. So it goes…

*****************************

April 17th – Day 79

We were live to a $535 P3 today, and ended up missing with the saver tri by a head. It’s been that kinda year. So it goes…

*****************************

April 10,11 & 12 – Day 76-78

Our drought ended on Sunday when our $50 R3 DD returned $269.80 but we were headed out of a 50% profit for the weekend when our Gulfstream exacta in the 7th just missed. So it goes…

******************************

April 8th – Day 75

On Wednesday, a trio of FTSs put the dud on our exotic play in the 9th after Mr. Bennett’s piece was hammered late at the windows and couldn’t get up for 3rd at even money, killing what would have been a nice return on our saver trifecta. This is not the time for “steaming”. We’ll stay the course till the end of the meeting. So it goes…

******************************

April 4th – Day 74

On Saturday, we had Ziadie in the 8th and the 11th. He won the former but was last as the BF in the latter. It was all moot as our exotics failed to click anyway. So it goes…

******************************

April 3rd – Day 73

On Friday, our exotic in the 10th was converted to an ATB play as Gift Receipt got away at 5-1, led to deep stretch and weakened in the final strides returning $5.20 for the show. So it goes…

******************************

April 1st – Day 72

On April Fool’s Day, the joke was on me when we were completely off the board. So it goes…

******************************

March 28 & 29 – Days 70 & 71

Over the weekend we wagered $232 on two exacta plays and Sunday’s play in the 8th returned $424.20. So it goes…

******************************

March 27th – Day 69

Another day without a play with an OFF TRACK and OFF TURF ripping the crotch out of today’s plays. So it goes…

******************************

March 25th – Day 68

On Wednesday, we went off our play when the action in the pools looked all wrong, then the nag scratched at 2 min to post. So it goes…

****************************

March 20-22 Days 65, 66 & 67

Over the weekend, our five shot revolver fired four blanks, cashing only a place and show ticket on Huamantla in Race 6 on Sunday and returning $150.50 on that $99 wager. On Saturday, one slipped thru the net, Galvan 6-11 ITM angle paid $55.00 for win. Mea culpa! So it goes…

**********************************

March 18th – Day 64

On Wednesday, in the 2nd, we learned that Baltazar Galvan is a straight shooter and in the 5th, we had the horses with all the action but they disappointed. So it goes…

******************************

March 15th – Day 63

On Sunday, the Delacour firster in the 4th failed to pop, no shame there. Our choice in the 7th, missed the place by a couple of lengths, but it was a good exotic bet in a wide open race (as the prices ultimately revealed). So it goes…

*************************

March 14th – Day 62

Both  of our exotic plays were hammered down today, so we passed on both. In Race 3 a FTS bomb saved us $$$ and in the 8th you got rewarded with a 5-2 payoff on the exacta (if u stuck with it). Mr. Pick Four’s $20 late Pick 4 returned $29.50. A few dollars more and you could stop for dinner at the Golden Corral. So it goes…

*********************

March 13th – Day 61

On Friday, our exotic play in the 6th scratched. So it goes…

**********************

March 11th  Day 60

On Wednesday, we were necked out of our saver tri when One Way Talk finished up close but 4th at 16-1. So it goes…

**********************

March 8th – Day 59

On Sunday, we had the winner in the 9th at 7-1, so we live to see another day. So it goes…

***********************

March 7th – Day 58

Saturday, we looked for some value (going off the Win bet on Songsational, $3.40 for the Win) but four bombs put the dud on the plan, but Mr. Pick Four’s late $0.50 P4 returned $64.35. So it goes…

************************

March 6th – Day 57

On Friday, I wasn’t playing, but the race of our selection was OFF THE TURF and there were two scratches in our exotic saver. I wouldn’t have taken it if it won, and I won’t eat it either. So it goes…

************************

March 4th – Day 56

On Wednesday, KABOOM! Our $149 wager returned $1761.50.  We also had the short winner in the 6th, Little Miss Perfect. So it goes!

*************************

March 1st – Day 55

On Sunday, we knew that the inside bias over the drying surface would be a factor in our race so we cancelled our wager (on the paltry $6 exacta, by the way), but we didn’t think it would manifest itself in the DQ of the odds-on favorite, but greedy Gallardo wanted the rail for the stretch run and it cost him. So it goes…

***************************

Feb. 28th – Day 54

On a cold and rainy Saturday, they were off the turf and in the slop, cancelling today’s plays. So it goes…

***************************

Feb. 27th – Day 53

****************************

****************************

Our conditional play won but was to short and our exotic was off the board. So it goes…

******************************

Feb. 20-22 – Days 48,49 & 50

Over the three day weekend, we wagered $536 and collected $515.20. So it goes…

*******************************

Feb. 19th – Day 47

On Thursday, neither of our conditions was met and we saved big $$$. So it goes…

*******************************

Feb. 18th – Day 46

On Wednesday, a good exacta wager that ran 1-3, but the saver came thru for $103.50. So it goes…

********************************

Feb. 15th – Day 45

When you can’t win a race with a 3-5 or an 1-1, it’s just not your day.  That was Sunday’s story. So it goes…

********************************

Feb. 14th – Day 44

On Valentine’s Day, Queen Joan came through (unexpectedly in the 1st) but our saver tri returned $411.60. So it goes…

*********************************

Feb. 13th – Day 43

On Friday RB + UC winner Pacific Image (at $6-1) put the dud on our Exacta play. So it goes….

*********************************

Feb. 12th – Day 42

On Thursday, I aborted on Cee N O in the 8th (with a couple of minutes left). Another angle. Ness had only one winner above 7-1 in L3T. 26-1 was a sure sign of failure. So it goes…

*************************

Feb. 11th – Day 41

On Wednesday, four nice winners and nothing to show for it. Two scratches in the 3rd and a FTS winner killed a $1500 Pick 4 for us and up close finish in the 5th and 6th race DD at $8.50-1 by Billy White Shoes also hurt. So it goes…

****************************

Feb. 8th – Day 40

On Sunday, our 3rd race selection did not meet the condition and our 7th race play was scratched. So it goes…

*****************************

Feb. 7th – Day 39

On Saturday, they were off the turf, putting the kibosh of our play in the nitecap. So it goes….

*****************************

Feb. 6th – Day 38

A painful loss on Friday when our top choice won at 4-1 and the 6-5 favorite with all the action failed to get up for a piece, putting us back to even for the meeting. Not to worry. We’ll get’em. So it goes…

***************************

Feb. 5th – Day 37

On Thursday, we scrapped the play when the short exacta was $6 in the last minute. It won easily, but we don’t bet $102 to collect $133. So it goes…

***************************

Feb. 4th – Day 36

On Wednesday, a couple of 2nd in our exotics and that was it. So it goes….

****************************

Jan. 31st and Feb. 1st – Days 34 & 35

Over the weekend we bet $314 on three exactas and collected $289. So it goes…

****************************

Jan. 30th – Day 33

On Friday, a good bet and a so-so outcome. We played three Pick 3s, caught the middle one for $89.60 and missed the first and last P3s with 2nds in the only legs we missed. So it goes…

****************************

Jan. 28th – Day 32

On Wednesday, I got spooked when the 5 broke through the gate pre-start and cancelled my $600 personal wager, but here on the blog, it’s water under the bridge. RoHo burned me all day today. So it goes…

*****************************

Jan. 25th – Day 31

On Sunday, we looked for a bomb and got the shortest tri on the board, but we had the ticket twice when Bennett’s rank layoff flipped in the gate and scratched late. We collected $218 for our $103 wager today. So it goes…

*****************************

Jan. 24th – Day 30

On Saturday, an Oreo sandwich, after a bomb provided the filling for our broken up exacta (1-3). So it goes…

*****************************

Jan. 24th – Day 29

On Friday, we had a DD and a Winner and collected $444.50 for our $116 in wagers. So it goes…

******************************

Jan. 21st – Day 28

Jan. 18th – Day 27

On Sunday, we cashed one of two exactas and broke even for the day. So it goes…

*******************************

Jan. 17th – Day 26

Saturday’s exotic play was scrapped when Big Reward scratched. So it goes…

********************************

Jan. 16th – Day 25

It took 25 days but finally we are seeing a green bottom line. Our $76 weighted exacta key box in the 6th returned $621.60 today and we are now up 8%. So it goes…

*********************************

Jan. 14th – Day 24

On Wednesday, we went off our exotic play for $100 ATB on our top choice and made $140 profit for our trouble. So it goes…

*********************************

In order to be profitable, we require a strike rate of only 28% and we are presently at 19%, but our game tends to improve as the intel (quirin pars, bias reports, trip notes and more) begin to paint a clearer picture, as the less predictable initial weeks of the meeting are out of the way and the more reliable meat and potato months of the meeting serve up the entrees. Stay with us.

**********************************

Jan. 10th and 11th – Days 22 & 23

Over the weekend, Ness’ 15-1 shot in the Turf Dash was outgunned in track record setting race, but finished a respectable four lengths behind for the show (and that was all we needed), then we had the two real contenders in the 9th on Sunday but a couple of bombs shut us down. So it goes…

**********************************

Jan. 9th – Day 21

We had two of the longest on the board in the 8th race exacta and both of these high % trainers failed to fire. So it goes…

**********************************

Jan. 7th – Day 20

On Wednesday, we missed a nice score when Ziadie’s $0.60-1 favorite failed to hit the board (4th). Our win play in the 5th finished 3rd. So it goes…

**********************************

Jan. 4th – Day 19

On Sunday, we were necked out of a $500 win ticket in the 4th, but our Exacta play in the 8th returned $549.50. Kevin’s $12 late Pick Four also clicked today for $61.00. So it goes…

**********************************

Jan. 3rd – Day 18

On Saturday, we were headed out of a $1400 exacta ticket in the 6th. So it goes….

***********************************

Jan. 2nd – Day 17

On Friday, our 4th race play was scratched when Livin Large did not go. So it goes…

***********************************

Dec. 31st – Day 16

On Wednesday, short odds and an off track caused us to cancel today’s play. So it goes…

************************************

Dec. 28th – Day 15

On Sunday, a half a loaf again when Abiding Love won the 9th handily, but the favorite, Juliebrowneyes, with no excuse, was OOM. So it goes…

************************************

Dec. 27th – Day 14

On Saturday we were necked out of the Race 3 & 4 Daily Double. So it goes…

*************************************

Dec. 26th – Day 13

On Friday, I edited my original play (as it was, after all, an ITM angle and not a win angle) and it cost us a couple of hundred bucks when Call Me Back won the 9th handily, but the $30 saver Win bet returned $201. So it goes…

*************************************

Dcc. 21st – Day 12 On Sunday, in the 6th, Mecke Mantle upset at 8-1, but our key runner finished up close. So it goes…

**************************************

Dec. 20th – Day 11 On Saturday, we had a handy winner in the 3rd that returned $8.60, but were necked out of the Pick 3.  Mr. Pick Four’s $13.50 early Pick 4 wager returned $164.50. Way to go Kevin! Merry Christmas! So it goes…

**************************************

Dec. 19th – Day 1o On Friday, we got a nice 2nd from longshot Amaicing Gerry, but he was no match for sharp breaking wire to wire winner from McCarthy barn. In the 2nd half of our deceased daily double, chalky Woodard runner was a dud. So it goes… ************************************** Dec. 17th – Day 9 Shame on you if you bet Mr. Bennett’s FTS at 3-2 odds or Dale’s piece at 15-1. I’ll count the loss, but cancelling this wager was a no brainer. So it goes… ************************************** Dec. 13th – Day 8 On Saturday, we were right that there would be a bomb in the nitecap, but we didn’t anticipate two. So it goes… ************************************** Dec.12th – Day 7 Our $50 straight exacta was a runaway and returned $710.00 today. So it goes…. ************************************** Dec.10th – Day 6 Dacosta had a killer angle today but it was not to be for Magic Luck, 4th at $7-1. So it goes… ************************************** Dec. 6th – Day 5 The classic Meatloaf tune says “two outa three ain’t bad” but that doesn’t work for Pick 3’s. We had two of three in the Pick 3 today and finished up close at $13-1 with the one that missed. So it goes… ************************************** Dec. 5th – Day 4 On Friday, we settle for a half a loaf again as our exacta crashed and burned. So it goes… *************************************** Dec. 3rd – Day 3 On Wednesday, in the 2nd, Mr. Wirth’s piece held up his end at $9-1, but the even money favorite failed to get up with Roho in the irons. So it goes… **************************************** Nov. 29th – Day 2 On Opening Day, our 8th race exacta key box ran 1-3. So it goes… ***************************************** July 1st – Day 1 Our solitary summer festival selection won and paid $4.40 *****************************************
