Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A pretty amazing day, yesterday.

A strike rate of 42.86% (for the top rated horse) is nothing to be sniffed at and...

Had you blindly backed the top rated horse in all of the races you would have made a 76.54% profit on investment.

And if you had done the Trifecta in every race, you would got back just over 4 times your stakes.

There was a slight problem with the Early Bird ratings yesterday,

Typical as it was the one time in the last 2 weeks that Jill and I went out for fish and chips (you can take the boy out of Britain but you can't take the Britain out of the boy) and so I couldn't sort it out.

The link for the early test ratings (for those of you who need the ratings before the normal ratings come out) is... Early Test Ratings - please note that these don't have forecast prices.

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

Something to make you laugh

Senior Personal Ads

Some 'Senior' personal ads seen in 'The Villages' - A Florida newspaper: (Who says seniors don't have a sense of humor?)

Sexy, fashion-conscious blue-haired beauty, 80's, slim, 5'4' (used to be 5'6'), searching for sharp-looking, sharp-dressing companion.

Matching white shoes and belt a plus.

Recent widow who has just buried fourth husband, and am looking for someone to round out a six-unit burial plot.
Dizziness, fainting, shortness of breath not a problem.

I am into solitude, long walks, sunrises, the ocean, yoga and meditation.

If you are the silent type, let's get together, take our hearing aids out and enjoy quiet times.

Active grandmother with original teeth seeking a dedicated flosser to share rare steaks, corn on the cob and caramel candy.

I still like to rock, still like to cruise in my Camaro on Saturday nights and still like to play the guitar.

If you were a groovy chick, or are now a groovy hen, let's get together and listen to my eight-track tapes.

I can usually remember Monday through Thursday.

If you can remember Friday, Saturday and Sunday, let's put our two heads together.

Male, 1932, high mileage, good condition, some hair, many new parts including hip, knee, cornea, valves.
Isn't in running condition, but walks well.



Today's early test ratings show 33 rated races from five meetings.

Have a great day's racing!
