the FREE Logical Choice White Sheet for the
upcomming Derby. Also notice the two longshots--in
positions 4 and 5 and remember Giacomo, the
Logical Choice 4th pick 50-to-1 longshot
winner from a few
years back. It does happen.
(Also revisit this link
each morning after 7am CDT for the updated White
Sheet as some of the horses could scratch.)
According to Dr. Harry Binswanger of the Professional
Objectivists there are only two main branches
of psychology: Motivation and
So what does it tell me that my "motivation" to look
back at all the Kentucky Derby historical race data
doesn't materialize until it is too late to do anything
with it before the next KD race?
The thought to go back and do the research comes up
every year at this time before the race and then
quickly after the race, it fades.
Right now I am highly motivated (in the Reichian
pre-Phase I sense of the term) to go back through "all"
old Kentucky Derbys--back to 1985 where I first
conceived of the TMS Handicapping System--and
evaluate how well my Logical Choice
program as implementor of that System did at picking
winners and placers and
showers for the KD's. Then,
to use this information to bet same for the 135th
For the Roses Kentucky Derby this coming
May 2nd 2009.
So, why do I wait 'til it's too late?
Answer: because when it comes to putting my
ego on the line, or rather sometimes when it
putting my own ego on the line I am ... kind of ...
chic..n s..t about it.
Since some say cs is euphemism for letting
control you (or should that be the other way around?)
and that one should sometimes act in defiance of fear
I resolve to make my predictions without apologizing
ahead of time.

pdf file of Kentucky Derby White Sheets going back to
1999--with 2001, 2000 missing--and with
placeholders to include those and those of 1998 back
1985 to be filled in over the upcoming years.
*R is for Recreation, the 6th of 6--though only
nominally, not necessarily ordinally--life areas that
sources of pleasure for human beings.
And since some people need to be reminded
man is not omniscient (and I'm not going to
name names because some of you Cognitive
Neuroscientists and Behaviorists know who you are)
we notice that my predictions over
the past KD's are not perfect but they have hooked
some good winners.
Not perfect?!?!?!? he says, how about .... halt.
I said I was going to predict without apologizing.
But ... except for ... I have to mention that "The Greeks"
aren't really for Kentucky Derby only races but
for Graded Stakes long (route) races on the dirt at
Churchill Downs ... eventually I'll get Derby only
greeks for The Kentucky Derby and then maybe
for The Preakness and The Belmont ...
that is, maybe
next year I'll do this.
The end end. Have fun on Saturday and don't drink too
many Mint Juleps.
(Or for that matter, not too many beers either.)
