2017 Winter/Spring Horse Racing Thread - Triple Crown Season!!
We haven't had much success with pools recently, but if ppl want to light something on fire chasing a larger payout like a pk4 or pk5 I'd be happy to run a smallish pool (so that if we do win it doesn't get diluted 20 ways). Free Bris PPs on the current contenders

2017 Winter/Spring Horse Racing Thread - Triple Crown Season!!
Man, just missed a big result there. Still did OK in pk3s with the 1 winning, but I woulda had it 8X if that 2 can just hang on. Wasn't a huge fan of the strangle tactic used on the 2 at the start of the race, but he still ran on well and just wasnt good enough. Also missed out on the tri due to the 3 getting third. Coulda been worse, but stinks that none of those others showed up for 3rd.

They all sound great before the race, then afterwards you are left scratching your head thinking, well what the fuck happened there''' LOL EDIT - pay attention to how speed is playing. Pletcher's horse is pure speed and has an excuse in Sunland given he shipped from the Fla coast just 2 days prior and is balls to the wall from the opening of the gate. Reasonable to be gassed. No one will want to go with him thru the first 6F, so if the track is even remotely fair, he will last a lot longer on that lead today compared to the Sunland Derby.

As it happens, the Ill Derby is the TG ROTW, so you can check out their figs and analysis for free. My $.02 on these FWIW Multiplier - seems slow on figs, but I would have a more positive lean on this horse than TG has. This is they type of sheet that could have a big pop waiting in it, TheFactor horses are much better over 8f (off a very small sample size, given) and he has a sibling that was better routing than sprinting despite being out of Speightstown. May not hit the board here, but I would add this one to your virtual stable and keep an eye on him going forward. A large jump to ...

I'm not sure I'm sold on the "disaster" aspect of the Bluegrass yet, that was a terribly biased track for speed, but that aside, Irap is a half to Speightstown and has clearly been well meant all this time. Had I not been overconfident and ordered TG yesterday instead of just trying to wing it, I would have known that BEFORE the race and likely used him and very easily cashed that pk4. completely agreed on the SA Derby, visually a disaster coming home for most of those horses. Gormley may have some TG number power if he improves, but I would need to see incredible workout reports for him ...

There is a ton of new taunt out there now, seems like they are trying to slow down aggro decks. TrumpSC has a "handlock" deck out there that seems to be doing very well. I don't have all the cards needed yet, but even building it partially you can see what it will potentially do.

LOL @ Trump's motives for "friendship" with Russia being anything other than to line his own pockets and further develop his business interests with them. That's the most laughable thing about his entire presidency. He's got people duped into political discussions and arguing political motives, when if you follow the smoke, it's clear that at the end of the day all he's looking for are more personal (or family) business ties with them. At the end of the day, if Russiagate leads anywhere, it will be rooted in that premise.

Susan Rice asking to unmask redacted US names from NSA intelligence is quite standard. You guys act as if she knew ahead of time before she asked for the unmasking that Trump or Trump associates were going to be the names she found. If someone is investigating a bunch of Russian bullshit and gets handed some intelligence about a bunch of communications with US ppl and their names are redacted, I would hope to hell they figure out who it is and get to the bottom of it. Once again, if you ever want to discuss something SA has said, instead of trying to (ridiculously) discredit him, or make ...

LOL, all you've ever done is try to attack him as a person rather than address any of the points he makes. If you can't attack the message, attack the messenger I guess. That's been your approach since this thread started. He has a rational approach, treats people with respect, and calls people nutjobs who take the information nuggets that exist and take them too far. He hasn't jumped to any conclusions (nor should anyone else), other than to say there is shit tons of smoke here, let's get a real investigation to see what truly happened. The one thing he says that can't be argued, people ...

Wow, a meeting with dems in 2013 = "all the time". Since I know how terrible your reading comprehension is, will try to get this thru on more time. Not a single senator on the Armed Services Committee met with Kislyak in 2016, not one. Besides Sessions, who met with him 3 times. So you can quit with the bullshit about how Senators meet with him "all the time" in the course or regular senate business. Kislyak and Sessions were both at the Mayflower for Trump's pro-Russia policy speech in April 2016, which is the 3rd meeting he also never disclosed. They sat in the same row during Trump's ...

Yeah, there some people who are die-hard into bounce theory that will say that starts like that are no accident if they are due to bounce. Makes him a really tough proposition for the Derby because his -2.5TG figure would likely win the Derby if he gets back to it, but if he is broken from that effort then he might not ever make it back there. Always tough to gauge "too fast too soon" vs unique talent with a tough trip at this phase of the season.

That was the first photo I've been on the right side of for quite awhile. Kinda surprised Gunny is 1/2, but I guess he is 6 points faster than anyone else on TG. Need a backward move from him and a forward move from someone else. Speculative play at best.

welp so much for that. That was a big effort by that 1, front runners have not done well today and he definitely was against the grain and still won. Some thoughts about late pk4 R11 - I like 2 Tequilita here to possibly beat the other two chalk horses, but they will be tough R12 - 6 or 8 seem to be most likely winners R13 - 2 Saddlers Joy win bet, saver exacta 5,8 over 2 R14 - I'm going to try to beat Gunny here on a bounce, migth be ill-advised given he just ran a -2.5 on TG and could probably bounce 3pts and win, but I think he may be bet down close to even. 1 State of Honor and 10 ...

pk4 starting here GP R7 3,4,5,6,9/2,4,5,8,9/6,7,9,10/5,7 for $100 R7 is too tough to single a win bet, but I do think the 5 is good value here at 9/2 to finish in the money.

Interesting Florida Derby card tomorrow, could set up for another parade of chalk, but Gunnevera is a pretty serious bounce candidate (tho he could easily bounce and still win) and if someone else moves up, could find a nice price. Anyone else having a look'

Dropping two Atomic Bombs on Japan to end WWII
If anyone is a complete history nerd and interested in post-war Japan, my grandpa was OSS and after being injured behind German lines earlier in the war, was stationed in Japan after their surrender and became one of the main writers/publishers for the first GI "newspaper" in Japan, named the "Honshu Pioneer". My dad found several editions of it that he never knew existed after my grandpa died and he transcribed them and published them in a book (which hardly anyone has bought, which is fine)
