these 7 horse fields are killing me,,,,,,i played the first four races at the otb ,,,every race there is a 3/5 shot and your 2nd guessing yourself on wheter or not your throwing money away going against favorite,,,,,,,,,,,,example 1st race,,,had the exacta 2 times,,loved the 2 over 1 and usally wheel the tri,,,,didn,t want to throw money away early,,,race comes in 1-2-5,,,,,7/2 over 14/1 and30/1 for third,,tri pays over $500,,favorite at 3/5 gets steppy half way down stretch and finishes 4th,,,,2nd race like the 3 over 6,,,this time wheel the tri,,,the favorite wins and pays $3.60,,my picks run 2nd and third,,,darn tri pays a stinking $26.80 and exacta was $7.40 for $2bucks,,,WE NEED FULL FIELDS ,,,WE NEED THE F***ING  JUDGE TO RELEASE THE CASINO MONEY,,,weather was bad this evening and kept some bettors at home,,,but why can northfield run full fields for the same crappy purse of $1800--$2000  ,several times a week,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,but here    in illinois we can,t fill a race,,,,are all the horsemen leaving,,,

That is about the handle you can expect with the low purses and short fields.  I agree, release the damn casino money.  Had a pretty good night capped off with Jeremy Moon in the 10th  keying the Super High 5.

I'm well aware of what Jeremy Moon is and has been capable of. Didn't get him tonight. Congrats. But holy shit, he has been flat. Even in bad fields. Even in these NEWLY and TRULY bad fields. Time to start thinking outside the .... whatever. I'm pretty much at wit's end lately.

Off topic, but when's the last time Del Chupp actually DROVE a fit horse?

Sheesh, I'm getting pissed. Time to think entirely differently about everything in handicapping Balmoral. I don't mind crap racing when I'm winning.

speaking of Del, did you see his drive in the 6th on Radiant Truth ?  If you get a chance to watch it please do.  Let me know your thoughts on that one.
I had 50% of that super hi-five with bowserkat. he picked 4 horses and I picked one.
It wasn't that Jeremy Moon won; it was how he won...Middle of the track and drawing off ..that is the question that needs to be asked...
Will be interesting when OO gets back from his vacation.
George the Fruitman did not have a good night..Neither did his horses.
