    Thanks for the opportunity JK, EOG and BDSI. I'll likely save most of my bullets for the best race meet in the world - Saratoga, but will have my first Sunday play later today.

    Good luck to everyone playing the races this summer.

    AW's selection in Saturday's eighth race at Belmont Park finished second at odds of 11/1.

    THEWAYIAM paid $10.60 to place and $7.40 to show.

    Great try, August West.

    More NFL teams should try "Hail Mary" passes in the first quarter.

    Why wait until you're desperate?

    I love trick plays and the element of surprise.

    Was 20-1 when I posted. Went off at 11-1, looked promising on the lead but spit the bit for the last furlong.

    Sunday Play #9

    Belmont R6

    Win on 12 Minus Two

    Would never bet real money on Mike Luzzi, esp on the turf with a bad post but this is a freeroll, so F it.
