Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...


A pretty quiet day and, as it was a day off for me,

I really haven't got much to say about it.

The PBS selections both lost but we're still well in profit for the month.

Today I need to write the code so that the ratings email can be done automatically again (now that I've identified the problem and put in a temporary fix that should be easy.)

I'll also be catching up on the few remaining emails (including those that I have filed.)

Anyway, I'll get to that, firstly let's get on and take a quick look at yesterday's results in more detail....

Yesterday's Results

Yesterday's Results, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 19.23%.

Yesterday's Live Ratings, show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 21.15%.

Yesterday's - Link to Follow - results for All Races (including previously unrated races), show a strike rate (for our top rated horse) of 19.35% from all 31 Races (including previously unrated races.)

The Overall Profit Index. If you had blindly backed every top three rated horse in all of the races you would have had 77.16 units returned to 79 units staked. The Overall Profit Index was, thus, -2.33%

Top Rated Horse - There were 5 winners from the top rated horses from 26 Races. If you had blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have had 15.26 units returned to 26 units staked. The Top Rated Profit Index was, thus, -41.31%

2nd Rated Horse - There were 9 winners from the second rated horses from 26 Races. If you had blindly backed the 2nd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 48.15 units returned to 26 units staked. The 2nd Rated Profit Index was, thus, 85.19%

3rd Rated Horse - There were 3 winners from the third rated horses from 27 Races. If you had blindly backed the 3rd rated horse in all of the races you would have had 13.75 units returned to 27 units staked. The 3rd Rated Profit Index was, thus, -49.07%

Something to make you smile

Twenty Dollars

On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new husband and asked for $20.00 for their first lovemaking encounter. In his highly aroused state, her husband readily agreed.

This scenario was repeated each time they made love, for more than 30 years, with him thinking that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes and other incidentals that she needed.

Arriving home around noon one day, she was surprised to find her husband in a very drunken state. During the next few minutes, he explained that his employer was going through a process of corporate downsizing, and he had been let go. It was unlikely that, at the age of 59, he'd be able to find another position that paid anywhere near what he'd been earning, and therefore, they were financially ruined.

Calmly, his wife handed him a bank book which showed more than thirty years of steady deposits and interest totaling nearly$1 million. Then she showed him certificates of deposits issued by the bank which were worth over $2 million, and informed him that they were one of the largest depositors in the bank.

She explained that for the more than three decades she had 'charged' him for sex, these holdings had multiplied and these were the results of her savings and investments.

Faced with evidence of cash and investments worth over $3 million, her husband was so astounded he could barely speak, but finally he found his voice and blurted out, 'If I'd had any idea what you were doing, I would have given you all my business!'

That's when she shot him.

You know, sometimes, men just don't know when to keep their mouths shut.


Today's early test ratings show 19 rated races from 19 meetings.

Have a great day's racing!
