    "I hit a $1 Tri board box yesterday in the big race, by using the all button. When all less fails, hit the all button!"

    This post was met with some interesting disdainful comments.
    Understand that I am not criticizing these people. This is a teaching exercise.

    "That's almost like not even really winning"
    This one is my favorite.

    Imagine Tiger Woods in a PGA tournament.
    • He hits a long iron on his second shot over some water - that water is his primary concern.
    • It lands on the green well behind the cup and its backspin is running back towards the hole and the water.
    • On its way to the water, it ricochets off another ball.
    • Instead of going into the water, it hits the pin and gives Tiger a birdie.

    Tiger laughs at his good fortune.
    It's all part of the game.

    It actually CAN BE great handicapping...
    ...providing that you know when to do it.
    (Not joking.)
    CHAOS RACES are a perfect example - although I typically do not play everybody. Instead, I'd play all the horses over about 3/1 or 7/2.


    Okay, this is actually my favorite response.
    (Because it is mine. LOL)

    Not the only story I heard like that today. Although I couldn't see the ticket well enough to determine exactly was bet I was made aware of 2 friends the keyed Zandon and Epicenter on the board wheeling the balance of the field in the first 3 holes. They made nice scores and I can't knock them. Well done.

    It doesn't matter how you did it. A gazillion people bet that race and very few had the winner obviously. If you walked up to the window and cashed a ticket on that race then Kudos to you. Doesn't matter if you got a tip from a drunk horse walker or you got a tip from Mr. Ed cashing a ticket is what counts in this game. And for those of you too young to get the reference, Mr. Ed was a talking horse on tv in the 60's I believe.
