Don,
I get confused with straight tickets, partial wheels and boxes.
For example, in the Florida race it sounded like you said to bet 4/6 with 4/6 with 10/8 with 10/8 and to also bet a straight 4-6-10-8 super. But then in retrospect it sounds like you hit the 10-4-6 trifecta for $254 per $1 with two favorites in the mix, congrats....nice hit!

Curtis,
West Coast Speed always gets a couple of extra points in the formula!
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

my pick was 4 with 6 with 2 with 10 when the2 was out all I had was 4-6-10 I put the 8 in because he was next in line.

I I box 4-6-10 ex and tri then play a $1.00 super 4/6-4/6-10/8-10/8 it was no good. again I never said I had winner on top.

Don,
Can you please post your picks here on Friday?
I think I'm leaving early for Santa Anita on Saturday, going to morning workouts for the free coffee before the racing day starts.

Thanks, and good luck!

Stark are you from California, if so do you go to Del Mar and know the man who run the track Joe if so there is a possible you might know OSO- Kate and Connie they are related.
I will run my program as soon as the PP come out and post them as soon as possible Friday by the latest. c
You always need to check post.

Thanks Don.
I don't know Joe Harper personally but I think Curtis and Lester are good friends of his, I think they call him Jake, will wait for them to check in.
I don't know a lot of employees names, just recognize them because they've been there for the past 37 years doing the same job every day, the guy with the greasy black hair in valet parking, the guy with a patch over his eye serving cocktails, the lady serving up carved sandwiches who took over the stand from her mom, and of course John Shear at the paddock walking ring, he's been there the longest as he turned 97 this year!!!

Gronkowski won the weather-delayed Derby points race at Kempton, a race that TVG showed this morning. He's a big, good-looking colt with a long stride, although still a bit green. While he may be by Lonhro, a turf runner/sire, he is out of a Lookin At Lucky mare.

Twenty points will probably not be enough to get in the gate, so I'm curious to see where his connections run him next. UAE Derby?

If they really want to have an international flavor to the Derby, some of those races should be win and you're in type qualifiers.
