    Lets take the wrapper off this challenge.
    Half the battle is finding the signal in the noise of all the tracks and races available,to find the ones which offer better chances to find a winner.
    The other part is picking horses which can compete well in those spots.
    Then there's racing luck...

    Mayday[mayday!?,not yet]:
    0-0-0-0
    80[target] ÷ 30 [races left] = 2.66[minimum price to goal]

    #1/30:

    Parx R8
    #1- Rose Tree,handy horse has shown talent in brief career,great spot to advance through her condition in season debut,not a big price,but will do for now.

    $2 win

    Scrimmage breaks his maiden at first asking.

    Rose Tree won by more than four lengths at odds of 2/5.

    Five plays in, 25 plays still to come.

    Total investment: $10.

    Total return: $11.40.

    Scrimmage is assigned the task of turning a $60 investment into $80 for a chance to win $1,000 in cold, hard cash from BetOnline.

    Best of luck to one of our most dedicated EOG contributors.

    5/2 Indiana Grand Race 8;what about it?
    Indiana Grand had the gate camera on while the horses were loading for this 1 mile Maiden Special,and the #1 horse Bar Rag & rider Thomas Pompell were first in the gate and closest to it.Pompell sitting on an 88/1 shot is chatting with the assistant in the stall with him,cheesing at the camera,and constantly looking back as the other 9 horses in the race enter the gate,this is one busy guy before the start.
    Sure enough the field settles the starter pushes the button and the Pompell blasts Bar Rag to the lead,stays there all the way around while fending off a challenge from the 3/5 favorite who looked a sure thing to go by anytime,re-breaks and pulls away to a 2.5 length score paying $179.20 to win.
    Taking the blinkers off sure worked wonders...

    yeah I've heard this from another English friend

    I think it's because only tracks that can be wagered on over there get shown and due to some contract they can't offer CD

    frustrating for me because I used to look at Betfair odds for races, especially for Derby weekend
