Sorry I am a little late posting today's Place Pick 6. I had family activities this morning after missing all of them to go to Belmont's Super Saturday. More to come on that great day of racing.
UPDATE - 6:55pm - That was fun today. We were hitting winners all over the card and hit two exactas on our PP6 ticket giving us 4 winning combinations. Too bad those winners paid: $3.80, $3.80, $4.80, $3.00, $3.20, and $3.40 for a PP6 payout of $10.50 for the base of 50¢. That is the lowest PP6 of the meeting. We collected $42 for a profit of $6. That's ok, it was fun and marked the 10th time we hit the PP6 in the 59 days. I was at the movies this afternoon (Moneyball is a terrific movie, don't miss it) and got to have the great fun of scrolling through the race results to see how we did. There is nothing more fun than that. The excitement of seeing how the picks did and what the payout would be is such a thrill. That is just one of the many reasons that I love horse racing.
I will be back midweek with some postings here or at HorseRacingNation.com or at another racing website???
Off the turf at Monmouth today leaving a three horse field in race 8. That is going to probably mean a smaller PP6 payout today with race 8 almost certainly being a free square. I thought about whether to just single there and move on or get an exacta there. With the probability of a smaller payout it is even more important to hit an exacta today and get multiple winning tickets. I decided to single race 8 and try for the exactas in a race needing more of a spread.
Here is our standard $36 play: 1,9 with 1,4,7 with 3,8 with 6,7 with 3 with 1,5,6. Good luck today!
