    I'll bet 95% of the stable never joined in to the PASSIONS singing their accapella hit GLORIA with their buddies back in the 60's. Singing harmony was big in Jersey and NY back then. It was also a hit by VITTO AND THE SALUTATIONS and other groups.

    NYMet1986 I def fall in that 95% Nets. But music is in the ear of the beholder. You know what I mean.

    For my 13 years in Paterson, NJ as a cost analyst I had my own office on the bottom floor. It was pleasant being away from cubicle world. In my previous 13-year job everyone was in a common area without cubicles. I always hated trying to look busy when I wasn't. Playing Solitaire on a computer was not my style.

    yesterday

    LOOPDELOOP: I had no intention of betting that race at Yonkers. My thoughts were that he would win easily or finish dead last. At 7:50, against my better judgement I threw $2 on him to show. I rarely make impulse bets or purchases for that matter.

    NYMet1986 thats it! those 2 were a great mix. great song and very good movie.

    I see our former President; Citizen Trump has now been reduced to selling sneakers online for $399 a pair. There is also a Go Fund Me Account for him. They so far have $92,000 of the 400 million he needs to pay his debts.

    Just to annoy the old cranks of the stable. My bet on STRONGHOLD yesterday nudged my TVG account to a new all-time high. And yes, I was nice enough to tell an in-town critic that the horse was a lock on Sunday. Young guy, with slightly more hair than the old cranks brags about spending 30 bucks on a haircut.

    NYMet1986 I hear you and personally I dont really know anything for sure. You are prob right. But my point even with that horse being 25-1 on the break, I was certain I was only going to get 12/1 at best. That odd shift was a diff of about $1500 in winnings for me and I was not even mad. That just seems more predetermined then late money. 90% of the time you can use the will pays to figure out the odds, even in a drastic shift like what happened to me today. Also I'm just talking about T-Breds not harness.

    Is #3 RJ SPORTS IMAGE 6/5 in race 10 at Yonkers a win bet tonight? You have to toss his last race from the 8 hole. Does he bounce back, or does he need some time off. I'm going to skip betting tonight. Good new shows on CBS.

    WOW! Four straight chalks at Sunland to start the card.

    netsfan3 5th race paid $2.10 to win with Rosario. Darn I forgot to pick a horse for SHOWVIVOR again.

    I see I'm in 626th place with only 783 contestants still alive. Is the name of that song, HEY LOOK ME OVER? The only way is up for the NETSFAN. Was that from GUYS AND DOLLS?

    Saw something I haven't seen in many years today. The guy directly across the street hired 4 young guys to shovel out his walk and the 3 cars of his tenants. Guys looked about 17. House is owned by a County Freeholder. If he was around, I'd ask him. Could they be doing community service? 4 Guys seems like a lot for 4 inches of snow.

    netsfan3 The owner used to be on the town council. He's been head County Freeholder for about 20 years. I last talked to him when a truck knocked loose a power line pulling lose the siding on his house. His tenants are usually foreigners that are short term tenants. Maybe, some kind of social program I am unaware of.

    I just spent $27 buying the ingredients for stew for Sunday. I think that gives me the right to sit and watch racing instead of peeling potatoes or chopping an onion. I'll wash the dishes and pots & pans. Let us know when the Sunland race is going.

    #5 TIZZY IN THE SKY 2/1 in the Gulfstream 11th just might get the perfect stalking trip in this MBS race. MARYQUITECONTRARY seems better suited for a bit shorter distance. Good race.

    netsfan3 RREAD: You're such a racetrack dunce. Races are often decided by the trip a horse gets. If a speed horse gets off to a tardy start, his chances are extremely compromised. Just as a come from behind horse has little chance if the fractions on top are extremely slow. I don't respect your opinions on racing because just saying a horse won or lost can be known by just looking at race results. TVG chooses very competitive races for their MBS offerings.

    Trivia time. #3 SPORTS HERO in the 4th race is owned Calvin Furino at Belleville, NJ. Cal was a mutuel clerk at the Meadowland in 2010 when I retired from there. I doubt he's still working up there in 2024. Always used Richard Johnson as his trainer.

    O.K. Although the NETSFAN will be watching FIRE COUNTRY at 9:20, I am putting a win wager on race 8 at Yonkers. #5 UPTOWN HANOVER 7/5 drops and pops tonight. #3 Madrid Hanover 5/1 tries to hold on for 2nd for Bongiorno.

    NYMet1986 Play the #3 in the SA ninth and parlay winnings on your play!!!! Either way enjoy the night Nets.

    Nothing new on the tube tonight. Quite likely a bet on #2 THEE DESPERADO in the 5th at Western Fair in the early evening. He beat some of these same horse's last race.

    netsfan3 TAKA: THEE DESPERADO now scratched as well. I think God is giving me the business for not going with my wife and daughter to get ashes at 4 P.M.

    Tip of the hat to NYMET1986. He did choose #1 RESPIRATOR 9/2 in the difficult PARX 7th race. The 3 and 4 horses were never a factor. Now it's out to buy some hamburger rolls. Repeats of all 3 Chicago shows tonight.

    NY MET likes #1 RESPIRATOR in Parx 7rh race. NETS will try #3 BRUSHBACK 4/1 in that race. NESS horse has a good workout on 2/4/24 and has run o.k. on a muddy track before. No idea what track condition will be today.

    netsfan3 I noticed when I just watched the race live. Races where I know the favorite will more than likely lose, the one I like almost always does nothing. The 7th race was a perfect example of that.

    Howi & METS: I have the Valentines Day past performances for Parx already. Choose any race, tell me who you like. Let's see if we can come up with a winning 3 horse box in a race. We each get to choose 1 horse in the box. I go last.

    SR Vegas lol Nets ...too, funny.
    Oh well , I missed all the Valentines Day racing strategies you guys were considering. That's ok .I Had a lovely day with hubby . Hope you all enjoyed your day

    I completely agreed with a post I read on Twitter by Tiki Barber. The 49r's made a terrible decision to take the ball first in overtime with the new rules. Having the ball 2nd is far more desirable. You then know what you must do to win the game or at least tie it.

    SR Vegas I can't wait for the Super Bowl to return to Las Vegas . !!! FAN tastic !
    next, New Orleans 2025. I've had the pleasure to attend (2) Super Bowls.
    One in New Orleans after Katrina was cleaned up and the city reopened , and one in Atlanta . Great times !!
