After some odd deletion of this original post I am adding it back in just to provide more backing of my history as handicapper.  While studying the Belmont Stakes, one horse stood out the whole time, Ruler On Ice.  I couldn't put my finger on why but I just loved this horse.  He not only had the will to win, but looked to be able to hold the distance and take a sloppy track.

The pool evolution is vey very important to understand your participation or not. IF a logical one is taking up too much of the pool and has a shot, that ONE entry can mess up the entire race as a wagering opportunity. YOU HAVE to know how much of the pool you are betting against, to know it a wager is worth it and that takes WAITING until about 45 seconds before the contest.....I lowered the bet between first look at post time yesterday. Contributed to the pool but did not get hurt too much
I lost $36 on the Rebel and I'm still wondering why I bothered to bet instead of watch.
Stakes by the nature of the large pool offer the best opportunities. That's why I favor them. I was with my son at Albany NY OTB and one of the young guys played a quick pick, pick six and hit for over a million. Probably about 10 yrs ago or so.
Icy, my BIGGEST profit (beside Pick 4 hits, etc) on one single race was near the likes of $2,000 (barbaro's KY Derby), I couldn't imagine ever winning that much!
Historical races are by they nature exempt......I can boast about backing Hap Logue at Bay Meadows but only I kow ti was true.
yep, the track took back the millions too.
Oh, lol, I thought he seriously meant millions! lol.
sarcasm anyone...
MILLIONS???? Are you kidding? That rule annoys me to, icy.
Yeah they deleted a lot of winners I picked too. I guess there's some kind of rule that it has to be posted BEFORE the race is run, not over a year later. I remember a few races I won millions on, but they didn't count them because of that silly rule.
The reason the horse "stood out" was that he showed on the form he could run on an off track. The only one in the race to do that.
I bet the 2011 Belmont. I don't remember who I had, but it wasn't Ruler On Ice! lol. Nice job, mjtags, great payday!
Wow! Nice job! Largest amount cashed on HRN!
