put all your programs, charts and video replays on the side ..let your speed figures lapse for a second. watching a race and making troubled trip notes are your best handicapping tool ..and put in use with your trackmaster virtual stable, you should catch more winners than ever
case in point ..while watching the races at oak harbor last week .. a trotter named mr leone was an odds on favorite ..he makes a break leaving ..falls back to last , spotting the field some ten lengths...then he moves up..parked 2 turns , collars the leader, then tires to finish 3rd. put a note my program...NEXT TIME !! ..next time, just happened to be last night at raceway as they held the lucas county fair super stakes. dismissed at 13/1 this time..mr leone , makes a strong backside brush to crush the field by open lengths. and coupled with a couple of odds on winners, he not only gives the off stride man a nice mutual but a pick 3 as well..
hats off to the raceway people... the bbq style 1/2 chicken dinner with 2 sides( both baked beans for me...lol) and a cola was only $6.50 ..ribs a dollar more ..sure beats the overpriced balmoral cheeseburger.. a gross, rainy 100% humidity filled night kept the crowds down.. but the racing was good and very formfull.. the winner helped fill off strides pocket.. the dinner his ample waistline...and the baked beans helped fill raceway with some aromatic qualities, best described as the sweet smell of success....
