Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A decent day yesterday with a strike rate (for the top rated horse) of over 30% (my target.)

You would have more than doubled your stakes had you done the forecast on every race.

I'd like to thank all of you who have sent in suggestions on how best to profit from the lowest yield horse and...

I shall be spending today trying to get some sort of strategy defined so that I can start the number crunching.

I'll update you on that tomorrow.

Anyway, enough of that, let's get on and take a quick look at yesterday's results in more detail....

Something to make you smile

Rose Buds

The teenage granddaughter comes downstairs for her date with this see-through blouse on and no bra.

Her grandmother just pitched a fit, telling her not to dare go out like that!

The teenager tells her "Loosen up Grams. These are modern times. You gotta let your rosebuds show!" and
out she goes.

The next day the teenager comes downstairs, and the grandmother is sitting there with no top on.

The teenager wants to die.

She explains to her grandmother that she has friends coming over and that it is just not appropriate...

The grandmother says, "Loosen up, Sweetie. If you can show off your rosebuds, then I can display my hanging baskets.


A young couple, just married, were in their honeymoon suite on their wedding night. As they were undressing for bed, the husband -- who was a big burly man - tossed his trousers to his bride and said, "Here, put these on."

She put them on and the waist was twice the size of her body. "I cant wear your trousers," she said.

"That's right," said the husband, "and don't you ever forget it. I'm the man who wears the pants in this family."

With that she flipped him her panties and said, "Try these on."

He tried them on and found he could only get them on as far as his kneecaps. "Hell," he said. "I cant get into your panties!"

She replied, "That's right, and that's the way its going to stay until your attitude changes."


Today's early test ratings show 34 rated races from five meetings.

Have a great day's racing!
