    #28/30

    Belmont R8

    #7- Three Perfections,has developed slowly,appears to have a lot more talent,needs to put it all together,this is the place/time to start,reunites with Saez,begins again as a 4 year old,could be a major player in turf stakes,or a bust,trainer Jerkens has put lots of bottom into him,should be plenty tight and give a good account here.

    $2 win

    3 days/5 chances to make,or break,with 2 picks still in reserve for next weekend.

    Friday/Saturday went 0-4,too much long shot layoff projection,and somehow excluding Cloud Computing here,while plugging him in another thread ???
    [Post #9:

    Yes,did cash a decent ticket on CC though,FWIW...]

    So currently:

    Streak -5
    27-5-0-0 $47.60
    32.40 ÷ 3 = 10.80

    Not looking good,but you never know.
    Still have this going:

    5/21 Sunday

    #28/30

    Scrimmage needs to channel his inner Aaron Rodgers and look to connect on a Hail Mary pass next weekend.

    Finished sixth at odds of 3/1.

    Bombs away next weekend, Scrimmage.

    Drives have been stalling & it's late in the game.

    Streak -6
    28-5-0-0 $47.60
    32.40 ÷ 2 = 16.20

    2 minute warning,3rd down and goal at the 32 1/2 yard line...

    Looking for a live longshot at odds of 16/1.

    Walter Gretzky, as passed on to the world through his son Wayne:
    “Skate to where the puck is going, not where it has been.”

    I believe this advice is equally applicable to horse racing.

    Good luck scrimmage the rest of the way.

    Last one didn't fire either.

    Streak -8
    30-5-0-0 $47.60
    32.40 ÷ 0 = impossible

    Done,game over,BetOnline's prize money is safe another month.
    Thanks to JK/EOG for the chance to participate,and for the support,opinions,and feedback from fellow posters,too bad the results weren't better.
    Actually learned a few things doing this,and through the write-ups realized where some mistakes were made,after looking at the pp's again when the race was finished.
    Un-sticky time's here;who's got next...
