Shanthi,

I am thoroughly enjoying this competition and am just sad that I didn't find out about it earlier.  Thanks for coming up with it.  I've only been doing it for 10 days, but am averaging more than $6,500 each day.

It is proving very frustrating, however, as I have had 53 races in which my three picks finished 1-2-3, however, not in the correct order. This does not include 19 races in which I actually did hit the Trifecta. In many of them, because of the order in which the horses finished, I ended up getting nothing at all.

How about adding a little something for getting 1-2-3 but in the wrong order, say $250??? Also say $100 for having your first two picks finish 1-2 but in the wrong order? I seem to recall a PM from you in which you said that you might consider paying something out if, say, the horse we picked to Show finished 1st or 2nd. This would be kind of like an extension to that idea.

Maybe you could start those in the New Year?!?!  Anyhow, this is just an idea/wishful thinking on my part/venting my frustration (pick one).

Thanks for listening.

Now that odds are generated I'm planning on setting up actual betting.  So once that's set up, you will get a (smaller) payout for picking the correct horses in the incorrect order.

Wow Shanthi, we just can't keep up with you, can we? We come up with a suggestion and find out that you're already working on it. There's just no holding you back, is there!!!

I'm looking forward to this. Thanks.
