I'm in. I will attempt to pick a non winner of every Saratoga race between now and when the meet ends. The first couple weeks have been easy...trust me.

They finished...

9th beaten 34.5 lengths, 6th beaten 12.25 lengths, 7th beaten 20 lengths, 8th beaten 15.5 lengths, and 9th beaten 16.5 lengths.

Five down, only 995 more to go.

They were all between 58/1 (lowest) and 85/1 (highest)

I'm only taking horses which I believe have a 0.00% chance of winning. On the weekends, there's hundreds of them ... I choose a minimum of five per day though, because of Tuesday cards when only a few tracks run.

As a companion to this thread, I would like to keep track of how much actual money is lost betting in these horses over the course of the challenge. I didn't note the exact amount yesterday, but I know it was well over $5,000, so we'll start with that amount. So through day one:

# of horses: 5
# of wins: 0
total amount lost: $5,000
ROI: $0.00

If for some reason, Doug, you don't want me to do this I will not, but I thought it would be fun to see how much money people have to throw away.

Also, for those following along, Trick Kitty is actually in the 9th at Prairie.

One of them scratched -- the other nine all ran and got crushed.

14 down -- only 986 more to go.

None of them have yet to finish within 12 length of the winner.

# of horses: 14
# of wins: 0
total amount lost: $6,715
ROI: $0.00

Lincoln Penny sure has been moving in the wrong direction since leaving the Weaver barn...

Had a nice score at Belmont with him when he broke his maiden.

Today was a good day to part the fools from their money, as the picks had a total of $4,581 bet to win, bringing the total lost so far to $13,033.

I did not have access to the individual pools at Parx so based on the result chart I estimated Go Marching In had $250 wagered on him.
