Not a bad haul for a Tuesday now.

Indiana 5
#8 Casatoria ($26.20, BestLine Fair Odds 4.43-1)

Presque 4
#5 Honest Ginger ($20, BestLine Fair Odds 6.81-1)

Presque 5
#1 Wreckhouse ($46.80, BestLine Fair Odds for the coupled entry 6.63-1), natural double on Races 4 & 5 returned $425-even, for $2

Thistle 4
#8 Baby Collette ($31.20, BestLine Fair Odds 2.70-1)

Thistle 8
#1 E Z’s Lady Bird ($24.40, BestLine Fair Odds 6.87-1)

Granted the Gods of the Parimutuels were with us in the Presque 5 race, owing to the aggregation of the probabilities via the coupled entry. How’s that old saying? Rather be lucky than good? More and more in this life, that is probably the best way. No one makes it on their own — too much randomness and happenstance for any one mope to control, no matter what all the self-important machers would have you believe. On the other hoof, as another good and honest (if silent) President of the United States said, ‘The world is full of educated derelicts’. In other words, FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. That’s in a book called ‘The Bible’, which makes for interesting ideas and imagery, especially in the latter stages. Specifically, the FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD passage is from James 2:14-26. So, you need a little of both, a little mazel, a little Horatio Alger. Mazel + Horatio Alger = A Life of Productivity, Service & Fulfillment. Probably.

Take care today, Week 2 of Swampatoga & Del Mar. Do your best. We do ours, mostly.

    Steve, How do we get our hands on these weekday selections? I didn’t see a link for weekday live long shots. Thanks.

      Please elaborate. Right now, the shingle is out only for Saratoga & Del Mar. No more freebies for the lookie-loos. They can go to Alex Jones & His Battles With Information for free stuff. Thank you.

    Ah, ok with regards to just offering sar and dmr. I saw the results you posted above and was looking to forward my credit card info to get those selections as well. 🙂 Will BESTLINE be a part of an updated version of AIO or is there plans in the works to offer BESTLINE for other tracks? Thank you sir!!

      Maybe. There’s a lot of legal hurdles we’d have to overcome, or else simply skirt, which seems to be not that bad of a crime anymore during our current fascination with the transactional beast. Moloch! Mammon! Faith, hope, charity out! Doubt, despair and cash on the barrelhead in!

      No. Not really. But a lot of mopes are like that these days. We will try to work something out. Maybe we can figure it out. We need Horatio Alger + Henry Ford. ‘FORD’s in his flivver, all’s right with the world!’ That was a great line in literature.
