Sunday was not an overly productive day at the racetrack in Florence. We limped home with a single winner out of the eight races carded at the “New & Improved” Turfway Park and over the AW surface known as Tapeta.

I have often acknowledged that AW surfaces are not my forte. Struggled with my formula over AW since its’ inception. Last year, the very first for this new Tapeta surface at Turfway Park, I finally found some numbers that worked. Took some fiddling and adjusting to my most significant factors to weigh in the final analysis. But I got there.

So far this year?

We haven’t gotten there.


Back to the “fiddle board.” Next two days, I will be doing some research and analysis, and when we return on Wednesday, we will have at least one adjustment on the board.

Here’s hoping you have a good week.

Here’s hoping that you and your family are safe and sound.

Here’s hoping and praying for the folks in West Kentucky. My beautiful wife, Leigh, is from Graves County and we went to her hometown of Mayfield on Sunday. You can’t imagine the devastation. Not even close. It is utterly gone. Totally destroyed.

As a result, it put Sunday’s lack of success at handicapping into total perspective.

Most of the Mayfield folks have zero left. Zero.


Until later this week…

Good Luck & All the Best / Gene
