    Ok, here is the first selection. Maiden Special Weight at Tampa Bay Downs today March 1, 2017 Race number 3 at a mile on turf. Horse is number 1 Above the Mark with a $2 place wager. This horse ships in from Gulfstream to Tampa, third race off the layoff from September. Great form cycle play. Outstanding connections of Godolphin Racing owner and trainer Thomas Albertrani. This 4 year old filly is a daughter of Street Cry out of a British mare. Lowest purse this horse has ever run for. Good luck to everyone.

    Thanks John for this opportunity. I hope to help everyone bring home some dough. Weather report for Tampa 0% chance of rain, turf is firm. 80 degrees currently with a high of 82 today. So beautiful weather for the turf races today at Tampa.....with no gulfstream or aqueduct running should be good pools today at Tampa.

    Alabama Dave broke his maiden.

    He's on pace to turn his $60 bankroll into $102.

    Keep it going, Dave.

    Two plays in for an investment of $4 and a return of $6.40.

    Alabama Dave's ultimate goal is to turn an investment of $60 into $80.

    I had a strong feeling the horse would be odds on and was going to mention when he made the pick, for contest purposes, there would be very little or nothing separating the place and show price. I certainly didn't expect a $.60 difference.

    I'll be interested to see if Dave's nickel-and-dime approach is successful.

    Would pay to know which tracks have adopted net pool pricing and which tracks calculate place and show prices the old-fashioned way.

    Nice weather at Golden Gate in the 50s with no chance of rain......So with that in mind lets go north to Golden Gate Race 3 with a $2 place wager on #2 Dixie Pistol. This horse should be on the lead of this 1 mile 6250 claimer. Horse drops to its lowest level and should run well on the tapeta surface.

    These two races are scheduled within five minutes of one another.

    The 6th race at Santa Anita goes at 3:00 p.m. PT and the 13th race at Gulfstream Park is scheduled five minutes later.

    Alabama Dave's selection of Abel Tasman was crafty and creative.

    Ok, 72 degrees at gulfstream with no chance of rain. Lets start the day off right with a $2 place wager on #1 Seuss in the first race at 7 1/2 furlongs turf.

  32. #32

    Default Re: EOG's Grand Challenge presented by BetOnline (Alabama Dave is playing the races)

    Seuss should stalk the other favorite and be very competitive in this 16k claimer, seuss was claimed in his last two races, a sure sign of a fit and ready horse.

    Seuss ran third at odds of 9/10, tagging Alabama Dave with his first loss of the event.

    Scoreboard update coming up.

    Miami and no rain high of 79 degrees at Gulfstream. 5th race on turf. $2 show on Soluble a decent midrange longshot with Leparoux riding. This is a 2nd off layoff turf starter.

    This horse at gulfstream is the number 5
