    It's been a tough month for me, Blunt. But thanks for asking. Haha. Going for exactas and trifectas has been hurting me a bunch over the past few weeks. And some lack of discipline on my part as well.

    As far as the formula goes, I've stripped it right down from where I had it because it kept landing on the same horses the public ended up liking. But I've been working on something new regarding pace, pace patterns, and energy distribution for the past week or two. I kept landing on horses that would be in a position to win early in the stretch, but then fade late, so I wanted to put a stop to that by adding a element of sustaining pace to the formula. I haven't included it in the formula yet, though. Just been testing those aspects out in isolation for the most part besides playing some positive pace pattern horses here and there. I'll toss both of those your way tomorrow if you want them. A helping hand would be most excellent for sure.

    Race 1 at Finger Lakes - #2 Beyond Discreet 5/1 to win for $10

    Race 1 at Delaware Park - #3 Anonym 6/1 to win for $10

    Race 2 at Finger Lakes - #3 Frosty the Dragon 6/1 to win for $5, and also #1 Dorees Giant Neal 10/1 to win for $5

    Race 3 at Finger Lakes - #2 Craft Concorde 5/2 to win for $10

    I'm also playing another 9 or 10 races later on in the day that I've already finished capping, but I should be back home by then.

    Edit: Due to one of my original picks being a scratch.

    Oh Crikey. Just 1 for 7 so far today, and that win came in the first race of the day. Alrighty then. Double win bet time it is.

    "Race 8 at Delaware Park - #6 Vicious 8/1 to win for $10"

    I'm win betting both the #6 Vicious and the #3 Awesome Standard for $5 each instead of this above play.

    Vicious closed pretty well just too far back to get back in it.

    That was absolutely sickening. The 1/5 horse can't even get out of the gate and falls 15+ lengths behind before he even got started. Then the #4 horse ran like crap.

    Posting picks in this stupid fucking thread is a curse I tell ya.

    couldn't have foreseen that horse getting bet down that hard or fucking up out of the gate, just bad luck. You'll get em back.

    Oh yeah. I'll get it back, Blunt. I have no doubt. Just not by posting in this thread.

    Maybe start another thread: Kentucky Derby and beyond? Part 2 and that'll be the good luck thread.

    Seriously tho, keep posting it's always fun to play along and talk racing with ya.

    Yeah, I'd just be starting a new thread, bud. I think this one has kinda run it's course anyways after 2+ years.

    I'm going to give it one more chance to prove that it isn't cursed, though.

    Race 2 at Penn National coming up in 10 mins - #5, #8 over #5, #8 over #1, #7, #9 over #1, #2, #7, #9 in $1 supers.

    Yep, it's cursed. The #5 horse stumbled out of the gate and then got squeezed right after that.

    The order came back #1, #8, #5, #2.
