2017 M4$ Contest

Pook is hankering for a little side action again and so is proposing the 2017 version of the M4$ Challenge.
Lets spice things up a little on Pace&Cap with some fun open to ALL MEMBERS (Not just Matchers!).

This contest, if it proceeds, will take place in the M4$ subforum of the Matchup section. It will differ somewhat from previous M4$ challenges in the following ways.
1. No documentation required. It will be assumed that members of this site are practitioners of The Sartin Methodology and will be using said methods to deduce their selections. Documentation is encouraged however because it adds credence to opinions whether right or wrong. In other words you will look cooler if you lay out your thinking.
2. No posting of races by contestants. The Pook will post NYRA's fifth race every Friday starting with Saratogas first Friday race, on Thursday nights which will be the contest race whether it is truly matchable or not. This will extend into the Belmont fall meet and maybe even Aqueduct.
3. The winner will be the first to accumulate 10 wins, however many races that takes.
4. There will be a $100US buy-in payable by Paypal or electronic transfer to the winner immediately upon completion.
5. If more than one player ties at 10 wins there will be a tiebreaker on the following NYRA Friday race using ROI to be determined with more detail at the time if this in fact occurs.


*Entries time stamps can be no later than race off time.
*2 choices per entry.
*Scratches will be substituted with the post time favourite.
*Minimum 11 entrants to facilitate a minimum $1000 winners prize.

I have chosen Friday as the contest day for selfish reasons. I Match five days a week Monday to Friday and do not wish to always be involved on weekends too. The 5th race from what I have observed is very often a good race for handicapping although I am sure there will be a few dogs.
If interested in playing reply here or in the same thread in the contests forum in the Matchup section. When and if ten players sign on it will be a go. I think I have covered everything but if not or you have questions reply here or PM me.

Thanks to Bill V. and Ted Craven for providing this website for us to learn and use Sartin or Bradshaw or any hybrid thereof in our passion for capping.

Pook: Saratoga is known for 2 yr. old and MSW races. May I suggest that if the 5th race is a MSW or 2 yr old race that the feature race will be automatically substituted. Md. Clm. races would be OK for play as a 5th race.

Good point Mitch. If the 5th is completely unusable we move to the days feature race. I assume you are in? Which would get us to four so far.

Pook, Lost, Mick, Mitch

Thanks Guys

Hey Pook - count me in for $100! At least, I'll add $100 to the pot on behalf of the 'house' , whether I play myself enough to win anything, though I will try!

Good luck all, and looking forward to the race on Friday August 18, when some of will be live at the Spa!

Hey Travellin Ted - Thanks for playing or least providing house money. Very cool. On the island for weeks? You can do worse. That is one of the most gorgeous places on the planet. My inlaws live in Ladysmith. Am looking forward to the Spa also. Haven't been there in 14 years.
