    Best of Luck SS, however I don't agree with the strategy of winning 3 bets to cash one bet? How would you be doing if you bet you bet your top 2 or even picks to win or even place if the odds warrant it? Not busting your balls, just wonder if you ever checked?

    Just keep playing the longer odds of the 3 dump the horse that's probably a chalk.
    I say 95% of the 3 there's gonna be chalk....You must have nerves of steel doing this.


    Anyway i got something in mind i'm gonna try out differently.....Until then
    The 95% is going to be high. In general, favs finish off the board about 25%. Granted, in the 6 and 7-horse fields you like to play it will be a tad lower. I could get an exact figure but the computer I use for that stuff is N/A at the moment.

    Also, if the chalk wins in a 6-horse, you shouldn't be worrying about not cashing a low-paying ticket. You didn't use to structure tickets keying on favorites. You use to structure bets to split your picks with non-fav combinations included. I would never key favs in exotics. Using them and keying them are big difference.
    If you're interested to know exactly how often favs run off in 6-horse fields, I could look that up tomorrow.
