A story goes with it!!
Details to follow.
In September of last year I was at the OTB when he run his first race. He went of at 33-1 and he finished full of run to run third with me having a 50 win ticket on him.
I thought at the time that he was the best 2yr old that I had seen so far last yr.
So I added him in my horses to watch.
Some two weeks latter I had not receive any notifications of any works or entity.
So I posted on TBC on the (whatever happened to ) thread  and some time latter I got a reply from a member that the  horse had some minor problems and Tagg (the trainer) is very good at not rushing his two yr olds.
So I waited for this horse for 14 months. And let me tell you,it was worth the wait!!!









BTW the way I bet him was:

6th race pick three.   $2    4,8,10,14 with. 1. With. 1
Then $5 pick three  14/1/1
And $7  DD. 14 /1

The DD. 14/1   paid over $200
The pick three  14/1/1  paid. #735

Yes, I just started  :chickendance: My original thinking was why go in a tournament
for $10 - $20 just bet the race I like. Now my thinking is that it is a fun way to spend
$20, still have a chance at a prize. I'm trying not to bet as much :celebrate:
The first tournament I played I started betting every race I picked lol This is the opposite of why I started playing.
but now I am on the right track and just playing for fun  :chickendance:
The big advantage to these is the take out v.s. track take out (5% v.s. 15%)
I give it the old  :thumbsup:
