So, I'm getting killed tonight at Expo.  I chased the pick 6 (with a fairly large ticket), and made a couple other ill-advised bets.

Heading into the ninth race (final in the P6), I'm a sparkling 1 for 5.  So, dejected and pissed off -- I decide to try a fairly "putz-like" handicapping angle...I bet the 7 to win for one reason and one reason alone: I had him on my first pick six ticket, and took him off when I revised it (you can see it in my thread with the picks).

So, moral of the story: the horse wins and pays almost $40 -- proving that even a blind squirrel can find a nut sometimes.   Wink

Best,
EW

EW, well done.  The way you bail out is amazing.  You know, at 22 you may be the only player left in this town who never seems to lose.  Keep up the good work -don't forget to play into the Pick 6 at Cal-Expo tonight and buy some lottery tickets too.  The roll you seem to be on gives you a decided edge over those who never win and $192 million is a nice score - LOL.

...oh and Scott p.m. ed me and told me to tell you that Timberton is a rat and your $500 win bet was a waste.  He also said to keep playing good horses like Chevie Winner and you'll almost be 1/2 as good a 'capper as he is - LOL  TC
