(Gene and LA at the Breeders’ Cup — Santa Anita)

Earlier this week, I launched my complete spreadsheet and analysis for this year’s Breeders’ Cup. Below, you will see my condensed version, for those of you who are accustomed to finding my picks on the “Handicapping Link.” You will see my “grid” picks under the “grid” title. I go into my “bets” underneath that, and my thoughts on horizontal plays — like the Pick 3, 4, 5 — as well.

It is a bit different format, but the same numbers’ process that I normally go through. I hope you find this information useful.

If you want more info, find my complete spreadsheet on the Home Page and download the full link. It will give more more analysis and reasons for my “madness.”

Here’s wishing you all:

Good Luck & All the Best / Gene
