sort of applies to this game.

"I'm a gate watcher" 

Thanks Dave.  Andy had missed a month so when Dave was rolling and the machines allowed it, bingo.

Speaking of gate watching....what is the latest you've seen the pools open recently?  I've hit some pretty good front end licks at Balmoral the past few months.  Maywood seems to close earlier for me.  Nothing beat Foxboro back in the day.  You had until just before the 1/4 to bet on a daily basis.  Bowden and Analoro paid for a couple of nice items.

Back in the mid-90's in downstate OTB's you could easily catch Foxboro open for 15 seconds into races on a daily basis.  I'm not sure if Fairmount was slow to hit the button or what, but those pools were left open well after "go".

How about back before co-mingling of simulcasts happened there was a race at the Meadowlands with a certain trotter (Mack Lobell) and I was in Sedalia, MO at the fair the first year they took bets.  The race was running and JC had Mack on top nearing the 1/2 and a teller was still punching tickets.  Needless to say that Sedalia betting thing didn't last too long.

15 seconds is not the quarter pole!!! in your next post it will be down to 5 seconds!!! We get what your trying to say though. Son we were betting the off on the 3rd floor at Maywood the day the SAM machines came out in 1985!!! My freind James Justice bet a $2000 exacta with Desperate Lady on top in a line up exacta at Maywood with no open stretch!!! it was paying 10$ after it won it paid 4.40!!!

And one last point.

As much as some people may about the the horses in this "game", there are others that are as knowing about the computers and tote systems in the "game".

Is it possible to make a living betting horses without having ever driver, trained, or owned a horse?  Without knowing a trainer or a driver personally?  Without any "in"?

The wheel of fortune hit Crazy Kevin at Maywood when he discovered the SAMs read a $2 bill as a $20 bill.  He ran across North Ave. so fast to the bank and cleaned out their supply of $2s - LOL.  It was the "$18 Miracle on 1st Ave". - LOL.  AH, the good old days indeed.  TC

I hit many small Tri's at Foxboro just by betting who had the most money in the WPS pools. I cried when they closed. The same held true for Hoosier Park the first year they opened. When different trainers and drivers started shipping in that all came to a sudden halt.

sn ,you gotta love Maywood.  Phony money scams, SAM scams, and more armed robberies than the entire 7-11 chain - LOL.  Ah, the good old days indeed.  After Kevin told all his backside fellow residents, every bank within 5 miles of the track was out of $2 bills !  Someone inside at Maywood has gotten a laugh at the Gestapo's expense at least a time or two, eh ?  TC

Undoubtedly.

If you run good numbers, watch replays, and pick your spots responsibly (not only the bet itself -- overlay -- but also the tracks you play) -- it's not an incredibly impossible game to beat.  Just my opinion.

I'd agree with that, especially watch the tracks you play.  Some seem to be more formful than others.  Wonder why that is? Roll Eyes

Oh, I forgot, for a 3-way split, you could find yourself in the money booth with all that cash flying about.  After kickbacks to unnamed persons, you stood to walk away with a C-note or so.  Ah, the good old days indeed.  TC
