Another O-fer on, but in the running in the TVG contest

Feel That Fire and Category Seven were at least game in two of my four Public Handicapper picks yesterday, but I found much more success in the TVG Tampa Bay Betting Bonanza and still have two more bullets left for later in Sunday's card. First, congrats to "Birdboys52", an NHC Tour member who accrued a mythical $117.40 (7 wins in 31 races) to win the Winter of Discontent contest; I ended at ($13.60) on 5 wins in 24 contest races, going 0 for my final 16 - that's just bad handicapping.

In the TVG contest, Great Patriot came through convincingly (1.5 lengths and going away) in a 6.5-furlong $8k claiming event in Race 2 on Saturday at 39.6-to-1 and returned $1,040 on a notional $20W/$20P wager, while in today's opener, I scored with 13-to-1 choice Sword Play, who had a relatively easy win in a mile-40 event on the dirt and benefited from a rider upgrade to Ronnie Allen Jr.; the $426 notional payout puts me at $1,466 with two mythical wagers remaining, which I suspect puts me in the Top 50, though TVG has yet to update the standings through three races. I anticipate saving them in either Races 7, 8 or 9, which are among the deepest fields on the rest of this afternoon's Tampa card.
