Well, the picks took home 2nd and 3rd. I never bet show anymore after looking at the calculated ROI, so the W/PP hedge (as posted) was $120 overall. Luckily, the #4 brought home a solid $5.60 to place, which in place got me $112 on a $40 place bet. Overall, a $120 bet and I brought back $112, so a loss of $8. I can live with that. So far through two races, we're plus $128 (last time we won $136). I'm not doing one for tomorrow since I have stuff to do but I'll try to get one for Tuesday. Hope all y'all have a good one.
I posted this exact same thing on numerous other websites. He was a great man and was always my favorite. Besides the actual sports, he was what made ESPN, well, ESPN. He was the voice of ESPN. Loved him and his enthusiasm. Sportscenter will never be the same. Thoughts go out to his young daughters, the rest of his family and friends. Very sad news. This coming a few days after the great Steven Gerrard is saying goodbye. A difficult few days for the sports world.
Rest in peace, Stu. You were as cool as the other side of the pillow. #Gonebutneverforgotten #booyah
Hey Derek! Hope you're doing well. If I lose, hope you get the win. Did you bet my pick Bluegrass Singer yesterday? The guy was big time :). Our guy Carlos loved him :). Good luck jinlie and mary.

Atta' girl. Love her. Quality young jock and nice young woman, too. Looking forward to a big 2015 from her. I predict much more attention coming her way in 2015 as she continues to get better mounts.
Amino I feel ya. I wanted to make a nice profit though since I only bet three races and I had a great day on Friday. 2-1 was disappointing though. Hopefully we'll get better odds next time.
Well, a decent winner here although the odds were lower than I expected/wanted. The bets were as posted. The bet was a little more than I wanted due to the sucky odds. Anyway, the posted straight bet was a 1/2 ratio on a W/P, 40/80. My original bet was 30/60 but the 2/1 odds made me put some more money on it. Then, the trifecta box (cost $24) which did not hit due to #2. All in all, a $144 wager. The win bet ($40) brings back $128. The place bet ($80) brings back $152. All in all, a $280 bring back. A $144 bet bringing back $280 equals a decent $136 profit. Nice call by Vic on that #2. Didn't really see that one.
nice call again Jarrod. Keep up the great work.
Well, I had Nasa W/P (1/2 ratio), so I should make like $30. Also hit the exacta box 7-8-9, 9-8 coming 1-2 but it shouldn't pay much. Nice performance from El Kabeir.
Same picks here. I like Nasa at 8/1 the most, though. Hopefully his odds stay that high and I'll put some cash on him.
