I still can't figure out the attraction of betting these short-priced horses -- you have to hit a bunch of them just to stay even.
And you were only a *little bit* wrong (I didn't expect RD to run out of her skin like that)...but it's still a loser.
Come over, CP. Come over to The Dark Side of Price.
We can reprogram you to HATE chalk, and to skip betting on any horse that is less than 5-1.
Whaddya say? Should I set up an Intervention?
intervention was needed to get me off Freehold--but an intervention of such magnitude would need in-patient treatment at an isolated facility where i would be forced to bet Calder, Woodbine and Keeneland--three tracks notorious for having chalk lose
when Its Tricky opened @ 1-9--i was horified but stuck to it knowing i would get 7/5 or so--same as my exacta @ Parx last week--thats my comfort range--and of course you are correct--it takes many winners to show a profit and as of late--my select, patient, premeditated picks have stunk-including Pet Rock last nite @ Lexington
i also play harness so maybe thats why i have chalkdust in my head
when i do try "the dark side"--i seem to not have luck at all--but maybe i should re-evaluate
i willl tread lightly until the Breeders Cup now--and Questing will be 8-1 at least--so thats about as dark as it gets for me
