We’re sinking faster than my 401k last year, but not to worry. We couldn’t even get an 8-5 shot (Cat Brulay) home first in the sixth. I’ve started slowly like this in the past before catching fire with long-shot picks. The nice thing about a long-shot system is this — you can fall $500 or $600 behind, then tab one 40-1 shot and suddenly be $200 in the black. Patience is the key here. If you have a system you believe in, more times than not it will eventually deliver.
