All the other meetings are still on and that’s the important thing. Still raining here, we are on the northern end of the Central Coast so officially a hot spot even though there are zero active cases. Anyhow, who wants to go out anyway?
One $3.80 winner from three bets yesterday and another three today which look okay. A couple of shorties and a $12 shot today.
Directly across the lake is Trinity Point where, being in the Hunter, covid restrictions mean that the event will go ahead with Morrisons Big Band and a 9 o’clock fireworks. We’ll hear it and see the fireworks while snacking on the deck.
Personally I’ve finished the year in front again, I think it is only 3 losing years in my life, but like many people, I never realised how good I was when I created Winform Ratings (originally it was Master Selection Service) and so never took full advantage of my own selections. I think my first BIG Bet was $50 on Better Loosen Up. It won at $3.50 ish so the few hundred dollars I won ( I had it all up with the winner of the last that day) was equivalent to more than two weeks wages, I was on $150 a week back then.
By the 90’s I was turning over more than a million dollars a year but had two successive losing years of around $20,000 each year before turning the corner in 1994 and only one losing year since and not by much. It was the invention of Money Factory that made me the most consistent income and of course Powerbet in the New Millenium was brilliant. Allan Nuss, was a programmer and also interested in Racing and ran a business called Bizzypak. I altered the rules of his concept which was originally set up for Saturday to Saturday punting. So you put all your bets on in week one at the same amount and then after resulting you got the amounts to put on next week based on the expected prices. Powerbet was the result.
Take stock of what you are doing so you can set yourself up for 2021. I am basically in semi retirement and apart from helping punters bet more seriously through the Winform/GTX program, and my joint venture with Wyee Computers with www.stakingkings.com I am now involved as an owner and breeder and part time punter when I feel like it.
I have become a professional stockmarket analyst on my own behalf but as you know have always shared my investments with Members. If you took up Zippay or Afterpay as many did you will be well in front. I am now currently investing in 3DA a 3D printing company which is involved with making parts for such things as a Boeing space ship project and other highly specialised stuff. Of course check out this stuff for yourself. I’m also in medicinal cannabis and have lost heaps on paper but it is a 5 year plan into its 3rd year and but for covid, would instead be up over 200% by now.
So the books are still there, this “blog” which started by the way years before there was such a thing, the Newsletters and occasional YouTube will continue, but without deadlines. Happy New Year everybody.
