  • Those races should be no problem, and the variety will be great. I applaud your pedigree research, it's definitely the most fascinating aspect of handicapping for me too :) If I ever need a deciding reason to pick a horse, I will inevitable choose an AP Indy descendant hehe. Probably not the soundest strategy, but we all have our favorites for better or worse!
  • Did u get my picks Rachel I thought I submitted them
  • RachelRachel Member
    i did get your picks, none but 1 of your horses got you points.

    good to see my advice helped LOL i dont know why its hard for me to pick a winner but im good at picking horses that atleast come in the money. i was suprised to get Nikki's Sandcastle and at great odds to boost points lol.
  • RachelRachel Member
    and yes, those races will be fine
  • RachelRachel Member
    dont forget, we can also do Standardbred and Quarter Horse races as well
  • Well, I feel lucky now that 4 of my 6 picks came in the money - going to buy a lottery ticket! I'm pathetic when it comes to handicapping - I even laugh at myself. Many years ago at Scarborough Downs in Maine I was so desperate at the end of the evening I bet on 3 horses in a 6 horse field and they came in 4,5,6.

    It would seem this new twist on the contest is resulting in possitive results :)

    Thanks, Rachel!!!!!!! Well forget about La Verdad! LOL
  • RachelRachel Member
    LOL bet against him xD
  • sarinnesarinne Member
    Interestingly, I wasn't even planning on using her anyway, so I hope she goes off at an even shorter price and give me more money on the filly/mare I use. lol
