      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.

          might get an early DQ if he does not pick something soon

            Pick 1

            Woodbine Race 8 Bison City Stakes

            Going bombing with the 5 Midnight Flash to win. 3rd off a layoff with a win at Woodbine already at this distance. Currently 36-1.

              Midnight Flash never offered a true rally at closing odds of 51/1.

              Next.

                    On vacation right now with my family so not much time to look at pps.

                    Today I'll go with Belmont race 5. $2 to win on #7. Nevin/castellano horse. 20-1 ML

                      First pick was a dud.

                      Belmont race 8
                      8 to win.

                        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.

                                  Was 24-1 when I posted. All duds so far. Going to try to stick with 5 to 10-1 shots for a while.

                                    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.

                                                Man its tough to get longshots home at NYRA. 0 for 8 so far.

                                                  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.

                                                          Pick 10
                                                          Race 10 Saratoga
                                                          Win on 3 Rockin Jo

                                                          Inner notoriously speed friendly when there isn't much rain. Aggressive rider who will gun to the lead and pray to hang on.

                                                            Rockin Jo finished sixth at odds of 8/1.

                                                            August West still a maiden in this event after 10 tries.

                                                            Mandatory selections to arrive today and Sunday.
