Here is a thought about value in a product… on the JJPPs and JJPP-PLUS we had 10 STAR horses on Friday looking at both New York and the So. Cal … From the total of 10, we had 2 winners paying $19.20 and $9.80 and 3 place horses… there are many ways to look at this…all the ways are good… with $29.00 in winning for a cost of only $20.00…ROI = $1.45 / $1.00 wagered… and that’s mighty good…but for someone like myself, who has a predominantly win/place wagering strategy, using weighted exactas – top and bottom… this means I am cashing 1 out of 2 tries…
Now of course there are many worthwhile plays that you can get into, and they may not all come form the Power Pages… that’s okay, but to know you are building your play book while including robust and powerful information from the JJPPs should help you through to the winning…
Terrible Training Jobs! This Blurp will be out on Friday night.

“Race Day Las Vegas” Play
In the 9th at Aqueduct we tabbed, Quai Voltaire off at 3/1, which was right at it’s M/L, which tells you I think the horse had a solid “value proposition” – I try very hard to avoid underlays, so if my play is at the M/L, it probably has value in my mind. QV broke in stride to take up the chase down the backstretch, there was no rush as it’s a long run to the turn, moved up early on the turn to get within striking distance, pulled alongside the leaders coming out of the turn… driven hard to take the lead and persevered with to maintain an advantage… won going away as the clear winner paying $8.40 and taking down the exacta.
Race #3 at Aqueduct, Gravitating off at 3/1 ran very well to gain 2nd place, but wasn’t a match for the winner. Clearly 2nd best in a good effort…we made the very good exacta.
AT Del Mar, Lassen off at 12/1, was finishing fastest of all – once finally clear. Unfortunately, we were locked in the pocket for a very long time. Missed the place by a head bob and looked to be the best… while finishing 3rd… oh well!
The opening play was Secretary of War in the 8th at Aqueduct, off at 3/2, SoW was off alertly taking the early lead, led without pressure, while moving at a lively pace, turned for home with a lead, but was unable to sustain his run, finishing 3rd,.
Then at Del Mar, Manitoulin off at 4/1 in the 7th. Challenged for the lead through 3 turns along the outside, (not my favorite trip), but was well under control of the jock, lifted well when set down and ran gamely to the wire to get the win. Paying $10.40 and producing cold exacta and trifecta.
