    Ok so $143 payoff yields about 2/1 odds. I've got the over-wheels at 20 bets per, so 40 more bets there. Did either over-wheel hit? I'm familiar with horse racing, though I didn't bet the exotics, found it hard enough to get ONE horse to run for me. :)

    48 dollar ticket paying 143 is a little more than 2 to 1.....only payoff was the trifecta.

    my part wheel bet was:.........trifecta part wheel..6 and 12 over the 6 and 12, over the 2,4,7,9,11..........let me make it easy for you......if I like the 6 to win and the 12 to come in second and I use the 2,4,7,9,11 for third......how many bets is that ?........

    now I reverse the first and second place horses to ...I like the 12 to win and the 6 to come in second and 2,4,7,9,11 to come in third......how many bets is that ?.............40, 30, 20, 10..5

    Anyone played it big and won at the Travers? I was busy and didn't bet...my man Tacitus came through, would have bet him and made a little dough but alas, there'll be another day at the races for me in the future.

    Sorry, I didn't realize that the Forum was back. I won a couple hundred on Travers Day at Mountaineer. I lost
    a couple hundred on my first visit to Saratoga on 7/18. A successful meet.

    I keyed Tacitus with 6 others first and second. To be honest, I would have bet either Maximum Security or
    Game Winner over the others. Hopefully the Breeders Cup Classic will bring them all together.

    The daily coverage on FS2 was spectacular. Very informative. All of the commentators were fantastic.

    Is TDV doing the weekly football picks this season?

    Hope you all had a fantastic summer!
