    Well then welcome to my life where every Friday night is me taking it easy. Old age will do that to a man.

    Moved up to 2nd after the #6 horse basically screwed the whole field by running into them. Still not good enough to get paid mind you.

    Jesus, Penn National is more than a half hour behind schedule. Race 6 there is getting close to a start yet was scheduled for 5:16 my time.

    Close, but I think I may have got it.

    Yep, I lost the photo because of course I did. My horse had every part of his body in front at the line, but apparently I lost the head bob.

    I didn't see it, was with you on the 4. Sounds like it's good I didn't see it. Very frustrating shit. We lost one earlier in the day by a nose, too. We deserve a close win tonight, hopefully the Racing Gods give us one.

    Percolator looks like a scratch at Penn. looking like Alturist should crush the field but odds will probably show it, esp now.

    I've gotten plenty used to losing photos, Blunt. I don't even know why I bother posted things like "I think I got it" because I lose way more of those than I win. Just have to brush them off, although it's tough to do when you have a day when everything goes against you.

    Here's a link if you don't have other means to watch these races;

    The scratch hasn't came up on my site yet, but if it did we still might be okay with the odds on Alturist since he's only thr 3rd choice on the morning line. If Percolator did scratch that may make things much easier as well since the only choice we'll have is the odds.

    gonna bookmark that, thank you sir.

    yeah I know a guy who had that issue with mma fights going to split dec's and having a terrible record on fights that were razor close. Some ppl just can't catch a break with that shit.

    If a track has a link that's not working directly through that then just search for the track stream and you should find it. I tend to gravitate towards tracks that have free online streaming for their races just for those rare occasions when someone wants to play along and doesn't have TVG or another means.. I'm weird that way, I guess, since my OTB site offers up video of all the races at every track.

    Percolator is still listed as racing, bud. Him and his entry mate opened at 4/1 while Alturist opened at 5/2. The will pays on the double payouts say the #2, #4 and #6 are going to be very close in odds come post time.

    Finished 3rd. Put the money in on him during the last few seconds when he was sitting at 4/1. Closed at 2/1.

    Somebody just dropped a few grand on Percolator at Penn. Went from 4/1 to 2/5 in an instant. Betters the price on Alturist, though, who's sitting at 10/1 with a couple mins to post.

    My book must've been wrong, looks like the horse wasn't scratched. Alturist at 14-1 rn, value city.

    I'm guessing we'll get in the 4/1, 5/1 range on Alturist now. Lots of money will still be bet, if you remember me talking about earlier.

    yup already down to 8-1. Jesus these things move fast. Sucks that you got screwed on that last price. I know he didn't win but still just goes to show how quick this shit is.

    Closed at 5/2. Yeah it does move fast. Especially at these tracks with small pools.
