2022 2-year-olds/2023 3-year-olds   Handicapping

ALL..Reminder ...that the paid handicappers pick a sole on top Winner and rarely no more than two more underneath.  They never pick a half dozen of the field and; say hey;  it could likely be at the end of race..Any one of these six runners

Shame on me for not being a paid capper and doing free stuff imo, narrowing the field down.

They talk about free squares and all and spreading in their pick 3's,4''s,5's,6's, and few pick a free square 

in a 14 horse field of 2 year olds on turf if at all. I have many more races to cap and one piece of the puzzle 

done for the pick players. Somebody likes it with the views this thread gets.

Yep...and as you have always insisted....picks have to be posted on the site before the ex post facto resultants .  No matter what or it doesn't you call it red boarding.....on the internet. 

Six is a bit deep IMHO

imo that is not a pick that I posted. Show me a redboard I did .

Tex calls the redboarding !
