    ok, here we go!

    My palm is a little itchy tonight . . . means I'm coming into money.

    $100 Bankroll

    Give me a $2 exacta box as follows:

    Pants On Fire
    Dialed In
    Mucho Macho Man

    That's a $12 wager

    I will then instruct the teller to print that same ticket 7 more times; yeah, you heard me right! I want 8 separate tickets . . . I don't need to be paying withholding tax.

    Now here's how I'm handicapping it:

    Pants on Fire
    This is a sentimental choice for me. Although I detest hedge-fund managers, owner George Hall and wife Lori are locals and support my home track of Monmouth Park; Lori is the real horseman in the family anyway. I also like the trainer, Kelly Breen, another Monmouth Park local. I like this horse's pedigree (son of AP Indy) and how he sat off the pace to win the Louisiana derby . . . I think he finishes in the money.

    Dialed In
    Sorry, can't ignore the chalk. A horse that knows the track, has a strong pedigree (Mineshaft), only 1 career defeat against older horses and has Nicky Zito as trainer. I'll hope he's upset by one of the other/longer horses in my box but need to have him in as insurance to partially offset the cost of my wager (hey, I think I just hedged . . . . I'm ready for George Hall)

    Mucho Macho Man
    Another local horse who broke his maiden at Monmouth Park. Son of Macho Uno and has finished no worse than 4th in 5 straight graded stakes races. Post position doesn't hurt either.

    So that's 8 tickets at $12 each for a total of $96

    With the $4 bucks leftover I'll have a hot dog steamed in beer and a small RC Cola.

    Ya know what? Just so I don't get pissed if my exacta box combination is also the winning trifecta . . . I'll do a $1 trifecta box on the above for a $6 wager.

    That's $106 total including the hot dog & beverage.
