My goal this year are contests and the "Monkey " needs to get those darts sharpen so I'm in. Really just working on longshot skills for contests and haven't played much, collecting data and analyzing it however other commitments keep slowing down the process. That and making some money with real bets from this.

Let's have some fun.

This is the 2nd Contest in honour of our website founder and dear friend Bill Varone, since his passing in 2020 (May 8).

The only reason we are actually even gathered here, even have this collection of Doc Sartin's wisdom, even have modern RDSS software, and have such a valuable and helpful collection of experienced Sartin methodology practitioners -- is because of the seeds Bill planted in the early 2000' out of his desire to give back to Doc for how Doc helped him overcome not only many handicapping problems, but more importantly - become a better, stronger and more resilient human being.

For those who don't know the story, Bill created a mailing list in the early 2000s named VDC Messenger (after his delivery business), which attracted many old-time methodologists (including yours truly). That list became PaceandCap.com. By various connections between people, Doc found out about this, then Jim Bradshaw connected with Richie P, I connected with Guy Wadsworth, Docs last programmer of Validator then his own Speculator software. These older programs eventually became RDSS. Many people contributed Follow Up journals, manuals, audio tapes and videos, and these came to reside in the Sartin Library here. Bill joined us at many gatherings at Saratoga and Del Mar, even when he shouldn't have when he was too sick near the end.

So - Bill planted a seed which grew to many, many healthy living things. He was always willing to help people learn any of the programs he knew. If you're interested, here are remembrances and photos including Bill: http://paceandcap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12925

Bill - wherever you are, whomever you are now - you live on in our memories and many people are grateful for what you contributed to continuing Doc Sartin's work. I'll always remember that and celebrate it while doing my best in this little Contest we've organized in your memory - this year with a record collection of great handicappers!



The first time I met Bill in 2008 at our first meetup in Saratoga!

Ted

Participation reminder

In order to be eligible to win each contestant must play 30% of the available races.

So far there have been 22 races, so the chances are that approximately 40 races, give or take, will have been available for players to place bets. This means that at the close of the second day's handicapping this weekend, you must have played at least 12 races.

Just a heads up so you can plan for this weekend.
