    Players: Baldheadedprick/Jack1999 are definitive. Mr. G&T is a possibility
    $2750 Roll
    Game commences this Saturday, and everyone has until DEC 5th to finish the $2750 roll
    All wagers to include win, and place on any horse. No exactas
    While you need to play both win, and place you do need to have same amount on both
    Min Increment $2 /Max Increment $8
    $200 payout cap on any 1 horse inclusive of both w/p.
    I will keep track of any overages, but for contest purposes Cap is in Place
    We all grade our own action, and I will run the tally. Just need a risk/return number each day you play.
    Available Circuits/Tracks-NYRA/KY/FLA/CAL/ Woodbine/Laurel
    Thur thru Sun Posting Only
    Multiple players can play same horse.
    All Plays posted in this thread
    Post in real time or advance
    We are each Putting up $200 payable to the winner at the conclusion.
    If a player posts a horse without a wager default is $2 w/p
    Player with most $$ returned is the victor
    Once a play is posted no changing it out for any reason
    In case a name and number of a horse do not match the name takes precedent.

    Good luck BHP, and hopefully you too Mr. G&T. Once you make a decision MR. G&T hit us back and let us know. It would be great to have you participate, but if you can not no worries. I make BHP the Favorite based on his last performance. Mr. G&T close behind, and Me the underdog here.

    Just read the guidelines over carefully Gentlemen and any questions hit me back. Or any concerns you may have with the parameters I wrote. THX.

    Thanks for invite Jack. I would love to participate, but due to some personal issues, I probably wont be able to start for a month or so. If you guys are ok with that, then I am in. I may look at DRF Race of the Day PP to play here and there for the time being. Just let me know. Thanks again for the invite.

    Personally I am ok with that Mr. G&T. That would give you about 2 months to finish the $2750 roll. As long as you think that's doable let's include you in. If you can play "here and there" for the time being like you stated that would go a ways to you reaching the limit by DEC 5th 2021. As far as I am concerned you are now officially in. If BHP or Mel has any concerns please state them. thx.

    So assuming no objections to Mr. G&T's slow start we have a $600 payday to the winner. I see plenty of Strategy here. I can see all of us getting out of the Gate a step or two slow. I know I will have a different mindset this go around. I need to or I will get buried again. LV Odds: BHP 5/2, Mel 3/1, Mr. G&T 9/2, Jack 6/1. and that is the order I will run the tally as well, irrespective of who is leading for the time being. near the end will order in results oriented fashion.

    One error in the guidelines. the bold face should read" While you need to play both win, and place you do not need to have same amount on both."

    as you know yes I’m in

    I’m fine with Mr G&T playing whenever he has the time
    It would be great to have Mel join us again & for YesYes to join the group
    the more the merrier

    FYI:
    I’ll play this contest the same way as I did the last one
    look for my best plays and use discipline

    thx Yes yeah we can wager up to $8 w/p so keep that in mind. Derby wars Cap is $32 for w and $18 for p for a $2 wager. so 4X that and you have $200. that's how I came up with it. Horse tourneys cap is higher than DW but figured $200 is a good number to use.

    Personally I will try and avoid playing the same horse as my counterparts here. However, we are allowed to have the same horses played. But no tailing someone in the game.
