Contest starts July 18 to Sept. 3

Come and play and see who can get to the top. I have been in top 10 a few times and dead last one time a week before the end a Tizz horse hit at big odds and moved me up in top 100. I only play to win in this contest. give it a shot.

In the top 25 at the finish line last year, gots me a snappy DelMar Beach Towel for a prize.
Will be back for more aggravation this time, thanks for the reminder.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

First contest race of the season will have contest players drooling over a 20-1 bomber, #4 Artie B Good who got added to a lot of stable mails off a better than looked effort last time out. The wise guys are already on alert so don't be surprised if odds drop in half or even well below that based on the hype. At the morning line, he's a wonderful contest play, if he's an underlay it may be best to wait as long as possible to hit enter, other opportunities may drift up?
Good luck to all who dare.

Hollendorfer by all accounts is loaded for this meet, so let's start there.

I think I've seen this race before.
Some speed signed up, horses who like to be on the lead, sprinters stretching out etc tempting to look for a closer that isn't the favorite, but who?

#13 Afleet Ascent is one of those horses who likes to be on the lead, whether it's one turn or two, dirt or turf. He broke his maiden sprinting over this course last season, now tries the dirt to turf move today. But here's the key.......KentDesormeaux takes over the reins for the first time from a very capable StewartElliott. Kent is as good if not better than any jock in the room at handicapping and he can read the front speed signed up for this. Do Not be surprised if, from his outside post Kent elects to drop over and track the leaders and turn this horse into a closer a today. At 8/1 I'm willing to pay cyberbucks to find out.

Oh, and a little saver bet on More Honor.......Honor, our golden retriever, had 8 pups yesterday!!!

For those that are fans of SoCal morning radio shows on the weekends, #4 Andesh is the steam horse Wilman has been asking D'Amato about, might be worth a second look at 6/1?

Something I don't understand about the track layout picture on Brisnet, as I think these 1 1/8th affairs are from the chute start, no?

To be in the - is no big deal a few years ago I was a -1000.00 or so hit a tiz now horse move out of the red in one move got to about ten place in two days then drop back down. For me the fun is to first try to stay out of the red - next get to top ten then stay there. as of now I can play 3 times before going in red I am down 90.00 of their money.

stark how are you doing/
