Sorry about that, I guess I'm still in the Spa mode- that was 1:05 right? Or am I thinking about somewhere else?

Spa was anytime between 12:30 and 1:00 pm. - depending on the # of races for the day. 11:35 a.m. Travers Day. Belmont until a couple weeks ago was 1:05, but it's been 12:50 for the past couple of weeks.

With only 30 minutes to post for the first race and only 9 of 15 contest members signed up for today's stakes pick, I can only guess that several members are still having problems signing on to the forum. Hope the problem gets fixed soon.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY ABOUT OUR NEXT STAKES DAY VIRTUAL WAGERING

OUR NEXT VIRTUAL WAGER DATE IS THIS COMING SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19th

There are 7 stakes races on the card. We'll ramp this up a bit to give those who could not participate the last couple of times a chance to catch up. Instead of picking one horse and 2 alternates in one stakes race, we'll make it a pick and 2 alternates in THREE (3) stakes races. That's for everyone - not just those who could not participate the last couple of days.

ADDED BONUS - if all 3 of your picks in the 3 stakes races hit the board (come in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd), you double your money.

Picks must be in prior to the running of the 1st race which is 12:20 PM EDT

Good shit, thanks. Not being able to log on my phone is such a drag.

Good old first world problems.

We should postpone the contest till everyone is able to post again. I think that's only fair to everyone!

Can't do that since there's only one more day in the contest after this Saturday, and this Saturday is the biggee.

We're just one day away from NYB Stakes Day at Belmont, and I've only received one e-mail. And that was just asking if the e-mail I gave out was legit.

So far, I'm the only one listing picks which is unusual with only 24 hours to go. I went out on a great big limb posting my
e-mail publicly. I hope those of you who can't post take advantage of it and get entered in the contest. But, then, maybe you don't wish to divulge your e-mail to me???!!! I just don't know what else I can do to help out as we limp along waiting for things to get fixed.

I just don't want to see the contest fold. There's a nice prize for the winner. More than that, I don't want to see TBC fold. I'm still not quite over us losing everything from the old site. Prayers for TBC's recovery.

Its a very strange situation. My TBC is working perfectly fine. I have no trouble logging on or posting. Something is rotten in Denmark. Just don't know where.

I'm starting to handicap this now, and I have been in contact with Neighhey, so I'm sure I will get something from her in the next 24 hours or so. I really don't know what to say about this whole situation.
