Five Live Horses


--There are eight live combos going into the 12-horse ninth-race finale at Saratoga. There will be two winners if the 5,9 or 11 win, and one winner if the 3 or 6 wins:

5, 9, 11: $146,962
3, 6: $293, 925
1,2,4,7,8,10, 12: $293,925 carryover to Wednesday

--Contest update: I still have about 15 emails to go, but so far none of the extremely thoughtful and varied "Fix My Computer" suggestions has provided a permannt solution. However, poster AJ's workaround has allowed me to access both Google and Gmail via www.maximumsurf.info and he's going to be getting a pair of box seats for his godsend suggestion.

If any of the remaining posts provides a complete fix, I'll award a second set. Perhaps AJ's temporary solution will pinpoint the real problem for someone else.

Of course, you always could just hit the early Pick 4 and buy a Mac with the proceeds. Then donate that dog of a PC laptop to the lawyers from NYRA to total up their lack of assets. You'd get a tax write-off for it too. - DMac

NYRA has now confirmed, with witnesses present (including a rep. from DRF) that Lawyer Ron's initially reported time was accurate. They have officially named him the track record holder. You first referred to the 116 Beyer as "provisional." Will there be any adjustment now that we know the time was accurate? 116 for that time and that visually impressive performance seems a bit light, no? I don't really get the logic of insisting that a result fall into line with past results, or what would have been predicted (the projection method) Isn't that a bit deterministic? Sometimes the unexpected does happen...

Hi Steve; I need the Green Monkey to race. Do you think he will. Pletcher is the man and the best. His appearance tells all. Perfect or nothing at all. Would love to meet him. Love Racing--The Ponyman

Steve Love your Blog, I'm a west coaster so a trip to Saratoga is a bit out of my way. Thank you for bringing all the color,commentary, insights and weasels into my home. By the way, I would never have thought so many horse fanciers would be such computer geeks...the response to your inquiry was astounding! Keep up the Great work!

Here is a thought for the computer problem. Try going to yahoo.com and searching google toolbar download. After downloading and installing the toolbar you should be able to search google from any website using the toolbar feature. Maybe this will help. I tried....hope you find a fix. prizboy

I have been following thoroughbreds for many years and the people in New York wha have interes in New York breds and think that they are ever going to get to another level are sadly mistaken. Bless them, and they must very deep pockets or W.C. Fields was correct when he stated that there is a sucker born every minute.
