Let's quickly look at some races that were contested today. Let's begin with the 8th at MNR -- another no-brainer.

While the PT ratings themselves more or less suggested a 50-50 chance for an upset, the PT pattern more strongly suggested such a finish. Five horses' PTs came within 6 points of the top rated 8's. So much for an investment potential overview.

Now, when we just casually peruse the table's CAs and PAs, how can we not see immediately that the 6's VP stood heads and shoulders above the rest of this field's? This pony owned 5 of the strongest versions to his CAs. If 3 constitutes a strong VP, how much better does 5?
And was not the 2 betable in this race, having the DD/PR2 combo? This horse was all set to "explode" And this pony was a 2-point HPCR type. Here is how it finished in this short field.

Hey Sweep. No performance enhancing drugs for me. The only thing I am high on is BHM. LOL! Thanks for the compliment though. To tell you the truth, I am a pretty small time player. I only invest $50 - $100 in a night at the simulcast facility. I am learning quickly which races to put my money in and I have no qualms about betting very long priced horses to win and on top in the exactas and trifectas. The more I play using this methodology, the more I get a sense about which horses are ready to go. The $127.40 horse at HOU is a good example. I just kind of "knew" she was ready to go and the angle combinations seemed just right. That was a very confident bet. When I first started studying with the group, I was very overwhelmed with the volume of information, but it is all making a lot of sense to me now. It is really a lot like learning another language. The more you use it, the easier and better it gets. I don't know if all that makes a lot of sense or not, but that is how it is working for me.

Anyway, thanks for the compliments and good luck in your handicapping escapades!

If you continue learning at your current rate, continue to cultivate the "eye of the tiger" attitude when it comes time to put your money where your opinion is and adopt smart and consistent wagering strategies, I predict, unequivocally, that the results you will achieve will go well beyond your wildest expectations. You can bank on this.

This next race will probably be the Shorty of the Month. Very difficult to believe the crowd allowed this winner to go off at the price he did.

Students, please add to your PA list all the versions to the SCW1, 2 and 3 angles. Been meaning to tell everyone this, but it keeps slipping my mind.

Not much needs to be said about this race other than the fact that the PT ratings didn't give a clear indication which way this race would go in terms of potential investment opportunities. However, the PT pattern did. Four horses had PTs that were well within 7 points of the top rated horse's. Therefore, a contentious race was suggested.
