NAME : CAT or Lady Cat (your choice)
Arapahoe Park which is so far from me and has very low level horses I have never bothered to go!
Used to go to GULFSTREAM when Living in Florida....
First horse racing wager:
When I was just a teen, My parents would take me and give me a $20 to bet all the races...$2 on each to win...
they were often SHOCKED & Amazed at how often I WON
My innane ability to choose LONGSHOTS!
Even I do not understand this 'Intuition' ability~
I have had it all my life!
As a child I would pick names from the local paper and check next day to see who won, 2, 3...
I had a lot of them, even then ~
without any INFO/stats or knowledge!
I have never used racing form info, PP's or stats in any contest or at real track/OTB betting
I go by:
NAME OF HORSE (that 'calls' to me)
Never play a horse with GOLD in name
GRAYS: Gray Obsession!
SIRE (offspring of my Fave Sires)
I never bet on any under 8--1
Winning $5 is no big thrill to me!
My Heart SOARS at the sight of a GRAY
have lost b/c they do not win that day
I cannot resist betting on one!
However over time, they pay off BIG for me as well:
BLACK TIE AFFAIR
LIT DE JUSTICE
FLY TILL DAWN
etc etc etc
MOST important handicapping factor
Once again for ME, tis the
NAME, THE GRAYS, THE SIRE!
AND HIGH ODDS!
LEAST important handicapping factor:
OWNER, Trainer, Jockey, STATS
YOUR favorite wagering pool:
Favorite Handicapping Book
NEVER READ ONE
I fly by my own inner Intuition with the 'Horse Racing Goddess' guiding me...
Somehow for ME ~ that often works!
Strange as it sounds...
I have won most of the last 15 Derbys
other than NOT betting on---
Street Sense, Smarty, War Emblem, Barbaro...Lil ET, Strike the gold or go for gin...
as well as having longshots like
Sarava = Belmont @ 70-1
(Name called to me)
One Dreamer in Distaff: 47--1 (gray)
Giacomo: 50-1 (GRAY of Holy Bull)
Wild Syn: 30-1 (Love Wild Again!)
Often bet on one by Distorted Humor also & some sires whom I have loved in the past....
The Handicapping Forum can be improved by:
Perhaps a mid week CYBERBUCKS OR..
A SUNDAY added Cyberbucks in addition
to regular Saturday one
I think the forum is great
I see no room for improvement...
just additions ;-)))
GIANT KUDOS TO ALL WHO PROVIDE THE CONTESTS AND SCORE THEM!
Your consistent dedication is very much appreciated!
