Day 10 - Feeling better about today's card, so let's attack the 50¢ Pick 5. Race 7 is a MSW in which only one horse has started and the #7 will be the top choice. He could run away with the race, but there are 6 first-timers in there, too, and a few of them show some promise. We will make two primary tickets one for $54. The other takes all in race 6 and singles #10 in race 7, that costs $63. There is one ticket with 3 back-ups in race 8 for $27. GOOD LUCK! With the scratch of the #7 in the first leg of the Pick 5, the cost went down to $36, $42, and $18 for the 3 tickets.
In the 50¢ Place Pick 6, the ticket will be small today - 5,6 with 1,5 with 7,9,10 with 7 with 10 with 3,7 for only $12. GOOD LUCK! Overall totals for the Place Pick 6 are posted in the right margin. In the third leg, the scratch of the #7 lowered the ticket cost to $6.
5:18pm - update - Place Pick 6 paid $117 for 50¢. We had 5 out of 6, missing on leg 5. Not bad for a $6 play.
5:38pm - update - We had 3 out of 5 in the Pick 5. The first leg was won by a horse from Parx, who was trained by a guy for whom I have NO respect. There's a story that has to do with the first horse I co-owned. Sorry everyone!
