Turffontein Pick 6

****

The weekend past saw some top horses converge on the South African Turffontein racing centre. I typically avoid playing a pick 6 on these days because the winners usually come from a small pool of runners which duly happened until the last leg when a dog won. I had a number of dogs in that last leg in a pick 6 I put together for a client in 15 minutes.  Despite the rough result in the last leg and the carryforward the pick 6 only paid R18 000.

I always talk about a playing edge. Too many top horses running? No edge. Carryforward? Edge. Too may top horses AND carryforward? No edge. No play.  Next!

Greyville Pick 6 Sunday 21/02/2010

11,1,6,14,3,15,16,8,12,13,5 x 3 x 7,12,1,8 x 6 x 5,1,2,7 x 1,4,6 R52.8 (10%)(total outlay R916 for all the various tickets the above being the winning one)

I emailed my colleague in Malaysia at 11h54 RSA time with the multiple tickets (based on my Exotabet software).
