Get ready to have your mind blown
In Part one of Proof of Concept we wrote about the positive results from the Standouts:

Since 6/20/22 and through 12/31/22 there were 8,089 Standouts, 2,710 of these won for an on average 33.50% win rate, 1,902 placed for a 23.51% place rate and 1,172 showed for a 14.48% show rate and an overall in the money hit rate of 71.50%.

Of these 8,089 races 15 did not offer place bets and 218 did not offer show bets. If we bet $2 across on all we would have wagered $48,038 and received $48,584.18 for an overall flat bet profit of $546.18. Had we bet $20 across on all we would have a flat bet profit of $5,461.80 or $200 across on all we would have a flat bet profit of $54,618.00.

This profit is without eliminating a single wager for odds and flat betting each of these across and before adding Zen wagers on average 5% cash reward. Presenting the information this way first as it shows that once we released Version 2 we’ve reached a milestone that without adding in anything else our module is proof of success, it works and we are only 30% complete.
—————————————————————————

The Reason Our Program is a Huge Success with the release of Version 2 is the algorithms now in place in our module Correctly Separates out the Standouts and takes us to Profit by separating and selecting 8,089 races that have a 13 point advantage from the next runner in that same race and doing so from 18,852 available, essentially eliminating 10,763 races takes us not only from 59.44% in the money hit rate to 71.50% if we flat bet all Standouts without eliminating one wager we’d go from a loss of $19,713.58 to a profit of $546.18 for $2 across the board wagers (win-place-show) even before adding in cash rewards and we’re only 30% done, only 30% of where we’re going to be and with proper bet sizing we can make the $30K to run an equity crowd funding campaign and finish what we began; getting our module to producing an on average between 65 and 75% winners, not in the money and then this boils down to bet sizing and how much profit we want to make!

Here’s why. Since 7/3/22, 13 days after we released Version 2 and began tracking Standouts which began 6/20/22 there were a total of 18,852 races and our program selects runners to finish in a particular order by the algorithms we already have in place and of these 18,852 races 6 did not offer any bets even on win, 101 did not offer bets on place and 795 did not offer bets on show. Had we bet $2 across on all WPS offered on these 18,852 we would have wagered total of $111,082.00 and got back $91,368.42 for a total loss of $19,713.58. 4,440 won for a 25.30% win rate, 3,606 placed for a 19.13% place rate and 2,829 showed for a 15.0% show rate and an overall in the money hit rate of 59.44%.

Our program separated 8,089 races from these 18,852 because our algorithms assigned specified to do so and 2,710 of these won, increasing our win rate 8.2%, 1,902 placed for a 23.51% on average place rate increasing 4.38% place rate and 1,172 showed for a 14.48% show rate, essentially the same show rate percentage as all. So by separating the 8,089 Standouts we went from a $19,713.58 loss to a $546.18 profit even before receiving cash rewards on every $2 bet.

Bet $20 across and that profit increases to $5,461.80, or $200 across and the profit hits $54,681.00!
now
Add in the on average 5% cash rewards Zen receives on their WPS wagers and the numbers go off the scale:
$2 across becomes a profit of $2,948.08
$20 across becomes a profit of $29,480.80
$200 across becomes a profit of $294,808.00
and this is if we do not progress one step further!

Yet it would be a shame to get this far and stop because I am no longer at the helm when we have someone capable, as capable as Ed would be in making money on our bets through Jon Wright. And now that I’ve laid out this Proof of Concept all that an equity crowd funding campaign would require is financial statements showing our expenditures and asset of what we’ve invested to date along with a projection statement and estimate requires around $30K to cover for preparation, SEC filings, professional fees (accounting and legal) production videos to raise 5 million and 5 million would not only take Zen to 65 to 75% winners, this would also cover for integrating A I so we could robotically trade our investments.

I prepared the Proof of Concept for you to have ready whenever you (Zen shareholders) are ready to present to obtain equity capital to complete our venture. Though whenever you are ready to present an updated Proof of Concept should be done. Jon Wright maintains a running total of each so this can be done on his end.

Presenting what we have to you in its completed to date form now lets me step away meaning at present with how I’m feeling I very much wish to take the time I have left to spend with loved ones and resting because this is the best way I can show everyone involved in our venture what a big deal we have, what we’ve accomplished together and it gives me the chance to ask you from me, my heart and Ed’s, don’t let our dream fade. Don’t let all we’ve worked for together just go cause I am no longer here. We’ve set everything in place so there is no reason we can’t reach the end. Plus no one, not one person in our venture will lose anything, not even their initial investment because everyone is in my trust and the payout from the Camp Lejeune settlement, though most likely 3 years from now provides everyone their investment back. I ask, how many times have you invested in anything and at the very least got your initial investment back? I answer for everyone cause I know the answer is never. But this is the case here. I ask only that you don’t let our venture that we built together die.

Lastly, we need to fund Zen. Replenish our betting account and enough to cover our overhead, the absolute necessary things required to keep Zen moving forward. Even if you already own a share in equistats, consider buying in another share to keep us going. You’ll gain ownership also to a piece of our horse racing database the most crucial component to our existence. Once I’m no longer here there won’t be anyone to cover for this while waiting for funds to come in. Every penny we had, including betting pool, and every thing I had left went to get us here, in order to release version 2. Jon continues to bet for us (Zen) and is quite successful yet we have little funds for him to bet with.

In a recent post I offered a fair way of taking care of all this by investing in a share in equistats that equals an additional share in Zen and though stated that the investment towards this can happen throughout the year to give everyone the chance to use the program for awhile and make money we could use a portion of this now. We opened 7 shares in equistats for $7K per share equivalent to another share in Zen meaning when dividends are paid that this share would be added to any shares already owned. However we’re virtually near zero in our betting bank since covering for Zen’s bills since September. Have no doubt Jon could make all the money we need to get us to crowd funding if he had money to invest now. So this is also a last plea. Even if one share was funded, Zen could move mountains. My plea is, buy in a piece of a share now.

Commit by sending in something today and then take the rest of the year to pay the difference. These investments can be made at the following link: Buy a share in equistats

After sharing all the above my wish is that the light bulb went off. That by showing you these numbers that you too see not only what we accomplished and how substantial it is but also what is in store and how we’re on the cusp of success if we don’t stop things from moving. This is my wish. Keep going! Do what you can to make this happen. This means everything to Ed and to me and to all of us involved.

Proof of Concept

Click on Image to Enlarge

Since 6/20/22 and through 12/31/22 there were 8,089 Standouts, 2,710 of these won for an on average 33.50% win rate, 1,902 placed for a 23.51% place rate and 1,172 showed for a 14.48% show rate and an overall in the money hit rate of 71.50%.

Of these 8,089 races 15 did not offer place bets and 218 did not offer show bets. If we bet $2 across on all we would have wagered $48,038 and received $48,584.18 for an overall flat bet profit of $546.18. Had we bet $20 across on all we would have a flat bet profit of $5,461.80 or $200 across on all we would have a flat bet profit of $54,618.00.

This profit is without eliminating a single wager for odds and flat betting each of these across and before adding Zen wagers on average 5% cash reward. Presenting the information this way first as it shows that once we released Version 2 we’ve reached a milestone that without adding in anything else our module is proof of success, it works and we are only 30% complete.

Add 5% cash reward to each return and
$2 across on all Standouts nets a profit of $2,948.08
$20 across on all Standouts nets a profit of $29,480.80
$200 across on all Standouts nets a profit of $294,808.00

For a copy of this report Click Here

There are 3 ways that Zen shareholders can proceed and all three are a way of making money.

First is you could flat bet all without eliminating and should be able to set up a wagering account through the affiliate I mentioned previously that offers cash rewards though not as high as Zen gets but any percentage adds to the bottom line. Note unfortunately this can not be set up for anyone who lives in Nevada or California due to legislation.

Or instead of flat betting all, you could elect to do as we do (Jon, myself and all inside Zen) and analyze the results and place bets accordingly, essentially culling through odds and hit rates and wager on just these.

Second since Jon has been successfully betting what we have analyzed and proving profit, be certain that he maintains funds to bet with as opposed to paying the required things to keep us going with our betting pool and by year end we’ll have enough profit to continue working on what we have that would get us to 60 to 75% winners.

Or Third, take this proof of concept and go after equity crowd funding which Jon would head as he knows Everything I know about what we’re doing. All that is required is Proof of Concept, a current financial and money in order to set the campaign up properly though there is no reason Zen couldn’t get funding to not only get this to 75% winners but Also incorporate A I so Zen could robotically trade so if making the decision to move in this direction opens the door to sourcing for funds in upwards of several million.

And there is actually a 4th option. We have over a million dollars already invested in what we built. There is no reason what we have can’t be sold and at the very least could net what has already been invested. I just personally did not pursue this as an option beyond the two mentioned before sharing my plight.

No matter, even staying in status quo there is no reason to believe that once I’m unable to be active in Zen that Zen won’t continue and succeed.

Apologies for being forthwith in my recent posts though my person is unable to do otherwise. Though by outlaying what I face is dismal doesn’t mean that Zen is destine to go down the tubes because I will no longer be present.

Honestly I really need to step away. That is what I meant when I said this is probably my last post. Since my diagnosis I have been going full guns in order to make sure Zen will keep going. I have every confidence that Jon Wright can get us to the finish line and expressing this was my intent in the most recent post. I hope that by my stepping away, meaning not posting anymore on the blog would give me the peace I so need to relax and do the best I can for the remainder of my days. My post was Not intended to give concern. Quite the opposite. It’s just that I am no longer able to push through and since I know inward that we are in a good place and that everything will be fine entrusting all that we (I) set up before bowing out and bowing out is for me a great need because I’m exhausted is all.

Please remember I have everyone listed in my trust so nothing, not even initial investments will be lost. This was a God send to me. Knowing of the Camp Lejeune settlement gave me the peace I needed when I came to realize that physically I was no longer able to carry on.

The most difficult thing that I have had to accept is I have no idea how long I have and when I will not be able to continue as I have. Yet I am aware of what I face, understand there is a window and I also personally experience fading so this makes me anxious. I do not know from one day to the next if I will be here so when I write things it is always with this in mind.

And I try to avoid writing about what I’m experiencing because I do not wish to worry anyone. I personally worry that I won’t get things to the place they need to be to carry forward without me and this is the reason I have kept pushing. Though, Now I feel comfort in knowing this has been accomplished. Everything is set. Jon will make everything we set out to do happen, and this allows me to step away and the reason why I stated this will most likely be my last post.

I’m leaving our world. That is a given and something I accept yet I plan to be with everyone in Spirt, along side Ed and rooting all of us home by hollering “Let em roll at the quarter pole”. I have given all I have through and through, each step of the way and it is because of this that I am able to leave in peace.

Zen Racing in Hands of the Most Capable


Way back when….. there was a techy for its time commercial playing introducing us to a new experience they dubbed “The Information Super Highway” and it wasn’t long for the world to discover they were referring to the Internet.

This goes so far back it was even before the Y2K buzz enthralled the nation, actually the entire planet because they were concerned the change in Century from 1900s to 2000s could very well bring all technology to a halt. But we made it and soon established our edbain.com presence by offering Ed’s Layoff and Claim statistics online and at several subscribers suggestion we added a state of the art “Message Board” so we could talk stats.

And talk stats we did, often with an interesting fellow stat enthusiast named Jon Wright whose discussions about statistics began on “the board” were so captivating that we found this such a benefit that we soon continued Ed’s and Jon’s discussions in our monthly Newsletter.

Jon has been the perfect assistant because Ed and me out of the gate noticed he and Jon share the same brain. So it was natural. Almost as if the lining of the stars had to be just so for this to happen and it did!

Ed and I are realists. Instead of going inward and disappearing when given bad news, we take the opposite and accept reality cause there is absolutely nothing we can do to change it. We view the knowing as an opportunity to plan and plan we did by first accepting when we started this venture that there was a high percentage chance that Ed wouldn’t see this to completion because of his cancer diagnosis. This bought about much discussion with the most important one being who would we want to carry this forward and have the utmost confidence in that would be able to do so and both of our first choices for this was our lifelong friend Jon Wright. Here’s why;

This is Ed’s Brain:

This is Jon Wright’s Brain:

So you can see our reasoning.

Continuing in the mindset of accepting things head on, I am fully aware that the coherent days I have left are limited yet understanding this does not make anxiety dissipate. My biggest concern, actually for a long time has been due to years of health issues that I won’t be able to get us to fruition because of these health issues I face. Yet rather than let this mountain of fear stop me in my tracks, I get up each day and say OK, thank you creator for giving me this time to set things in motion so we can plan to make a difference and this is how I go about my day.

Yet all this does Not mean that I know exactly what to do. How to get us there with the least difficulties. It just means I see and have always seen the big picture and understand if given the time and proper finance what Can Happen from what we’ve started. We truly have in hand the ability to “Better Our World” because once we reach final version we not only can’t lose, we’re a shoe in for making millions if not a billion as already proven by Bill Benter.

So this could very well be my last post as truthfully I Am fading. It’s been a challenge getting up each day though what drives me is to do everything I can to set in motion that our venture continue. Though it can Not and will Not without You, all of you seeing what we have accomplished to date and the actual Picture of where we can be which is why I write.

As stated earlier when first diagnosed I was flustered and didn’t have my thinking cap on straight. I guess that would be normal for anyone told what I was yet now that I’ve had time to think I realize asking a group of shareholders to take the brunt of the cost to move us forward wasn’t rational or fair as the majority wishes to continue understanding the original plan which is to have one person make the bets for Zen, a large enough investment once we reach 65 to 75% on average wins (not in the money) actual wins. Once there we can’t lose.

To date we’re about 30% done. What we have already accomplished is phenomenal though without someone pointing this out this could be lost. We could actually bet across the board on All Standouts (including the updated ones and changed ones through the day) and turn a very small profit because a lot of small priced favorites are included in the wins.

Moving forward means Jon is already and continues to place wagers for Zen. We analyze the results from the algorithms in place which then tells us where to focus our wagers. The money earned is how we’ll fund continuance and the release of future versions. And later equity crowd funding can always be a considered option since the release of Version 2 shows proof of concept.

The goal is to have the runners that make it to the list of Standouts to Win on average at least 65 to 75% of the time and know that this list is expected to be much smaller than current (say on average 15 bets to make per day) with the end result being for us to flat bet all, most likely across and we will turn profit.

However if Zen stops here and I pass then all stops there too.

So after long thought and opening myself up to guidance, in part guidance from Ed, I have come up with a plan. One that would fund Zen for 1 year, including paying assistants Jon Wright and Aubri as these are the two people who alone keep things moving along as it is completely unrealistic to expect each to work as I have for free. So what I propose would cover for their efforts during this first year, move Zen forward And afford Us, all of us the money needed to bring our venture to completion.

This is how:

Below is a graph of our structure. You’ll note that equi-stats, my other company, the one that owns the database which is the reason Zen could get off the ground cause of equi-stats supplying a horse racing database feed for free to Zen when compatible costs $500K per year and Zen Racing is Owned 60% by equi-stats. However out of the 36 shareholders Zen has, quite a few of these were/are equi-stats shareholders that converted a good portion of their shares to Zen, including me as well as my equi-stats business partner and head developer Joel.

All said and done there are 12.5 shares that equi-stats holds alone and are open in shares in Zen. Though its imperative for equi-stats to retain shares in Zen so when they reach goal equi-stats will have benefit too, this leaves 7 shares open. And what this means is this, we are opening these 7 shares in equi-stats to Zen shareholders for almost the initial investment made in Zen. These shares are offered for 7K verses the 6K and what this would mean is that these share have equal value to Zen shares so when dividends are paid any of these 7 shares invested in equi-stats would receive equal 1 share in dividends paid by Zen though a share in equi-stats means much more because a silent share in equistats give the shareholder a part ownership in equi-stats horse racing database, the absolute essential component that makes Zen go. In other words should equi-stats no longer be able to provide the database feed free to Zen then owning shares secures continuance verses the alternative of having to pay about $500K per year to an outside source for an equivalent data feed.

The shareholders who have a copy of our betting program in hand can now see first hand what we have accomplished and given time am certain will turn profit too. So what we propose is any Zen shareholder who uses the program or not but would like another share in our venture has another opportunity to buy in through these 7 open shares in equi-stats and can do so by investing in increments throughout this year. Meaning this gives a full year to pay for the share purchased so when we reach the point of paying dividends then this share purchase would count the same as any investment already made in Zen only the biggest difference and a plus is that as an equi-stats shareholder you now would own rights to the database! And this is substantial.

In closing to a very long blog post from my and Ed’s heart. We could never have gotten this far without any of you believing in what we are building. Ed devoted his life to racing and always knew with the right information that you could win and he did. Betting on thoroughbreds is Not gambling. Gambling is a game of chance and if you win the establishments throw you out. Betting on racing and winning only means to the racetracks or casinos that you will most likely bet more and should you win, they still get their “take” so it’s no issue if you win and we’re making this possible through this venture that you and Ed and me are part of.

To begin investing in a share which is how we can keep things going and eventually get to fruition please begin by investing at the following link: Shareholder equi-stats stock inv

To clarify, this is almost the same opportunity we offered when we first opened shares in Zen. Invest $7K (instead of $6K) and we’re offering this investment over time instead of up front, and by doing so receive the same advantages of a dividend payout from Zen’s profits plus own a crucial piece of what makes all of this possible, a piece of the horse racing database, the core behind what makes any of what we have happen. Invest what you can, as you can though in order to keep Zen going the full amount has to in by the end of this year. It costs on average just over $2K a month for Zen to run, Not counting Any compensation for Jon or Aubri with over $6K due in Jan which we didn’t cover and things can stop if we don’t cover these expenses. Even though Jon and Aubri may consider continuing temporarily without compensation it is not something that any of us should take for granted.

My wish would have been to be with you when we crossed the finish line. Though I understand now that this won’t happen I am grateful beyond words for being a part of what we all built together and for our getting as far as we have!

Handicapping Standouts

I’ve made some videos today that explain how I walk through the list of Standouts and decide which ones are potential bets including Ed’s and my reasons for passing or why they are considered. Apologies for the roughness to these. It’s the best I am able to do with how I’m feeling. Also want to mention the reason for going fast is because of the video size verses what we’re able to upload for you to view and there is much to share which is why.

What’s in our Betting App – What do we Have?

We’ve built a module that calculates and then assigns a rating to applicable statistics (Layoffs, Claims, Debuts, Won Last Race from our horse racing database beginning Jan 1, 2014) along with how each variable performs to these statistics separated by and specific to each track, class, distance and surface and when one of these applicable stats is in today’s race at today’s track, class, distance and surface that includes any and all shifting taking place such as with today’s jockey, owner, equipment, medication, workout patterns leading into the race and so on assigns this rating in a form of hierarchy derived through the algorithms, percentages weighed against the other runners within this same race, that then projects an outcome to the order of finish.

Then the module separates out the runners within a race whose top rating is at least 13 points higher than the next runners rating and lists these as Standouts.

The ultimate goal is for the runners that make it to the list of Standouts will Win on average 60 to 70% of the time and have an in the money hit rate on average of 80% or more so Zen Racing Stats is profitable flat betting all.

Since Version 2 we win on average between 28 and 36%, discovered through tracking the results that we actually place more than we win and have an on average overall hit rate of 63 to 72.5% in the money. Considerably up from Version 1 though we’re only about 30% in.

We’ll be releasing a copy of our program to all Zen shareholders who have signed the NDA and License agreement as soon as my equistats partner says ready (hopefully early this week) and are in the process of making videos that identifies what we have and because there is a lot to go over I thought it best to write out the constants. 

These are specifics, essential to keep in mind when viewing each race because none of this is mainstream.  As an example, at first glance of this screen shot you may view Todd Pletcher numbers impossible, too low as Pletcher has lots of MSW runners. 

Click on Image to enlarge

He does, but it is key to note that these numbers are specific to AQU, at 7 furlongs on the dirt in a MSW class yet the MSW purse may be 50K and tomorrow he has the exact same everything but the purse may be 75K so his numbers will be different yet the display of MSW will look the same which explains why you may see different. This also defines how powerful any positive percentage is because you will also view many zeros in a race which simply means this is the first time today’s trainer is running in all things specific to this race.

Without getting too off topic an excellent point to make is during this building process we track results and from these we learn what to adjust meaning it is possible that separating MSW by purse payout may be too tweaked and the numbers might increase if we combine all purse levels.  We noticed that this happen with Distance and understood adjustments that we should make. Yet in order to ready Version 2 so we could show proof of concept so we could raise additional capital to continue progressing we had to wait.  Perhaps inclusion of such would have increased our win percentages even more.

The follow defines the constants:

Track Specific:
Only identifies races that any one trainer or trainer/jockey combination ran at this specific track. Does not include overall record

Class Specific
Class is segmented by purse so as an example when you see a Trainer enter a runner in a Claiming Race with a purse of $10,000 at 6 furlongs on the dirt at Aqueduct, and same trainer has a runner in another Claiming Race with a purse of $20,000 at 6 furlongs on the dirt at Aqueduct, even though the program displays that today’s race is a Claim for both, the actual calculation on the number of tries and win place and shows will be different from the $10,000 purse even though everything else is the same.

Distance Specific
Each distance 5f, 5.5f, 6f, 6.5f, 7f, 7.5f, 8f, 8.5 and so on is calculated specific to.
Also, different by surface so 5f on the turf is not the same as 5 f on the dirt.

Surface Specific
Most race tracks have more than one surface so all information provided is specific to each.

4-Race Form Cycle Applicable Statistics for:

Layoffs:
1st After a Layoff
2nd After a Layoff
3rd After a Layoff
4th After a Layoff

Claims:
1st After a Claim
2nd After a Claim
3rd After a Claim
4th After a Claim

Debuts:
1st Race Debut
2nd Race Debut
3rd Race Debut
4th Race Debut

Won Last Race:
1st Race After a Win
2nd Race After a Win
3rd Race After a Win
4th Race After a Win

Even though the statistical count stops and is only identified within the module when in the 4-Race form cycle, the algorithms record all finishing positions.
and
The percentages are not cumulative and actual finishing positions.

This week will be filled setting up access to our program and making videos to walk through. All shareholders that would like a copy of our program are welcome to this when ready after signing the NDA and the Licensing Agreement. Let us know if you did not receive these docs and want a copy by emailing my assistant Jon at edbain@edbain.com and he’ll send these to you.

After this I will share a plan/idea on a way Zen can continue forward in my absence with a beneficial solution to all involved, even our non horse player investors that could take care of operating costs and being able to do so without going through crowd funding.

Step by Step

Evening

I’ve read everyone’s messages and couldn’t help becoming overwhelmed by the love and good energy you sent. Thank you for this! For your prayers, well wishes and encouragement. If anyone has a chance to endure life a little bit longer, it’s me. I can pull from your strength and keep the fight, as one of my good friends so well stated and use the energy you resonate to move forward with what we began as this is the majority of our shareholders wish!

I’ve given this a great deal of thought as to how to keep things progressing and have a plan that would require all of us working somewhat together and by doing so this would keep us advancing by approaching this growth in steps. The key to this lays with us getting the first part of this in place. From here you will see where this would lead and how the rest would be able to happen whether or not I remain.

You’re part of a business and in order for any business to run there are expenses. There are also write offs towards these expenses which I will elaborate on later. Until now everyone of these expenses were covered by the investments the shareholders initially made, then our developers working without pay because of the new promising investments we all perceived forthcoming and when it was taking time to ensure this, which is not uncommon when anyone is considering a large investment, the developers work had to cease because they kept to task as long as they could without pay,

So this is when I chose to go “all in” monetarily as well as physically in order to release Version 2 knowing the algorithms added in this version would increase the programs selected winners substantially. And it did! This took our progress to 30% complete.

And because of this considerable improvement in the program selected winners (up from on average 19 to 24% to 30 to 40% winners and 50% on average overall in the money to 67 to 75%) I did not have concerns about doing so because I saw substantial funding forthcoming plus we were now in the position to make bets.

So when anticipated funding came to a halt and unrealized by me so did my health the dynamics changed and here we are and to relay this properly where we are is important to define.

The initial intension was to build a betting program that included Bill Benter’s already proven data points added to Ed’s whose algorithms were derived from years of successful investing in horse racing through the use of these statistics so when the output of the programs top selections reached on average 70 to 75% winners (not in the money, but actual average winners) that one person, Ed, me or a designated bettor would place wagers daily on these selections and split all profit amongst the shareholders derived from the number of shares owned.

Well……. along the way this grew slightly towards a bigger plan. Not that we weren’t going to invest in bets when we reached the maximum output of winners, we would though when we realized that with the incorporation of A I (Artificial Intelligence) that we could robotically trade in a much larger and even more consistent way this was something we should do. The Casino that we’re set up with that offers us unheard of cash rewards for our bets even asked if this was what we were going to do.

To build our program from the beginning required a daily updated horse racing database which my equistats partners and myself own, and to add algorithms through the use of this database requires clean (meaning all points must match. Without getting too involved which would get us off track to relaying this, this means every way all trainers, or jockey’s or owners are entered daily into the base, and there are many multiple ways each name is entered, these must match so when you’re getting statistics, they’re accurate because the database knows all the names that each way belongs to. Though it’s not that simple. Every day new names are added, similar names are added, people come in and out of racing. You’ll see trainers come and go and jockey’s, and especially owners and so on). The reason this is mentioned is because even though we have a horse racing database it requires daily cleanup and this has to be done in all categories so for the early part of our venture most of the time was spent cleaning up our database and while doing so we weren’t seeing any progress on our end. And this caused some issues because we couldn’t start writing algorithms until the database or sections of it were clear and since we weren’t building anything yet it was getting difficult sourcing for funds. So the solution was using our database along with purchasing data files which allowed us to move forward and this is how we made it to today. In addition there are files we purchase so we calculate our information on the upcoming races as well as keep up with race day changes. We have our program on a server that we own which adds to the monthly expense. Couple this with other absolutely necessary annual expenses such as securing the server, filing tax returns, licensing fees and the bare minimum monthly expense that does not even include one person even our assistants or myself or my partner any salary comes to $2K. All of which I personally have been paying out of pocket since our capital ran out.

These expenses are all attributed to Zen. This does not include paying anything to equistats for use of the database which is OK for now as my partners have agreed to provide this data feed until a time that Zen would be able to pay nor any expenses equistats has separate from Zen. In other words without Zen paying for the expenses directly related to our daily operation, our program that we built will not run. Even once my partner has this ready for your personal use.

And unfortunately this $2K average a month does not come due evenly. For example in January the things that come due that must be paid in January costs us $6K. Then the monthly expenses sort of even out until each quarter where we must continually maintain $6K on hand to ensure things keep moving.

That shared, there is an additional point to mention. Out of our 36 shareholders, there are only 11 who regularly bet on racing so offering the program for personal use means nothing as they would not know how to invest with it and make a return. And since the dynamics have changed and at this juncture no one person will be making bets for Zen, their share owned is in limbo unless we get Zen to fruition or sell it.

In light of this, it would be difficult to ask them to pay towards this monthly fee. Which is the reason I stated that in order for Zen to move forward we have to first implement this step and this step requires on average 2 K a month to move forward. In addition there are several investors who pulled together their initial investment because they realized what we were doing yet to come up with any additional investment at this time would not be easy to accomplish. Yet if given the program to use in it’s current form they would have the opportunity to make money and because of this they would be able to invest their share at a later date. So this is my thoughts and what I suggest:

Because we require 6K in January to keep moving forward I set up some on line links for everyone to invest what they can so we can keep things moving. The links are set for $200, $500 and $1,000. If we ask each of the 11 investors that will be using the program to invest $200 per month each this would cover the expenses to keep things rolling. So to begin I’m asking the 11 shareholders that will use the program to invest. Each would be responsible for $2K for the year. If each can invest any of these amounts or more from now through January to please do so. If able to invest more now than later or the full amount now instead of later, particularly for this month of January so we can cover for January’s amount due, this would keep us going. The quantity can be added to the link upon checkout or can select multiple links in order to increase amount invested.

PLEASE NOTE: We have created a new page for these links: Shareholder Overhead Inv
This is the page to go to whenever you make an investment. Thank you

This would give time to all who use the program to make money and after you’re on this path, then you too can begin to pay your share of the operating costs in order to keep things going.

And because this is a business, you will be able to write off not only these individual expenses but also we’ll be issuing an IRS form K-1 for the losses incurred in 2022 by Zen. Since we haven’t yet moved out of the building stage, all money is spent without a return so the loss incurred in shared by each share owned. As an example, it is realistic to say that in 2022 Zen lost over 300K so each share would get to write off $3K per share loss on their personal return. Added to this, would be any money that you personally paid towards overhead.

I spoke to my equistats partner today, our head developer and he said that the program for personal use will be ready within the week.

By now almost everyone should have received an email from my assistant Jon which return address is from one of my equistats partners, named Russell Staggs. The email is in his name because he is the one who opened our Rocket Lawyer account. This message sent is a review of our Non-Disclosure Agreement for the personal use of our betting program. As stated presently this is set up for One person to use and my equistats partner is making the necessary changes for us so this can be used individually, on a personal level and because we want to protect everyone’s investment we have set up an NDA so our program states only for the use of Zen Racing LLC shareholders, the rightful owners who paid for it. Anyone who wishes to use the program must first sign this NDA and anyone who did not receive an invite for this, please let me know and we’ll set up an NDA for you.

Also anyone who did receive notice and does not want a copy of our program for personal use, please let us know so we can close out your NDA.

Since this post is long and I have more to share about how we can keep things rolling I’ll stop here and resume a new post soon.

I am moving slower than I have in the past. Sleeping a lot which is good, taking supplements that have assisted in my lasting this long and I have been able to put most of my personal affairs in order. Though I ask you to be patient with me regarding correspondence. Have much positive to share and once I do I think you will see too how things can keep moving forward and all the initial plans we have for Zen can continue.

A Most Difficult Post for me to Write

This is the toughest post I’ve had to write to date. I’ve started 20 different times, 20 different ways and this is the best I can do. Hope you can appreciate how difficult this is for me.

Apologies in advance for the length of this though you’ll soon understand its necessity.

I’m exhausted but have recovered from the diverticulitis. While in the hospital they ran additional tests due to other complications that were present and though not unexpected it still felt like a gut punch when directly stated. I have been diagnosed with end stage ADPKD, which stands for autosomal dominant poly-cystic kidney disease, and unfortunately this is end of life stuff. Along with this the doctor discovered what they referred to as suspicious cells. Could be cancer though this would require a Pet Scan to confirm that it is.

I say not unexpected because for the past few months my health has been declining to the point where I used to be able to recover in a few days after a push to not getting better and overall feeling absolutely awful. When finding out about the diverticulitis I hoped this was the cause but I know now that it is not.

About a year or so ago I let everyone know about the 2011 undifferentiated connective tissue disease (multiple autoimmunes) diagnosis and stopped there as this explained enough however in this same year I was actually diagnosed with 16 chronic ailments.

Lupus is one of the autoimmunes and at the time my Urologist believed was the culprit to the on going issues with my kidney’s that included repeated stones, regular UTIs, blood in urine and more and this doctor stressed the importance of keeping my kidney’s active because he said later in life I would be at high risk of getting ADPKD. He prescribed a drug called hydrochlorothiazide which is a blood pressure medicine that acts like a diuretic to combat however due to having insurance, not having insurance, having it again, I was on again off again for this drug.

In light of this news I understand everyone would want to know What will happen to Zen Racing Stats LLC?

First because of how I felt before I knew about the diverticulitis I elected to look into options with the first potentially selling the company and sought out the guy who offered 2 + million for it before we released Version 2 and found out he died. Then I looked into another potential interest and no go there too.

The second option is something I have been considering for some time, especially when the anticipated capital investment came to a halt but the only reason I did not move forward on this then was because of the decline in my health.

At first I attributed this to the massive on going push that I endlessly give to Zen, the many hats I wear every day to pull all this together that is driven by the certainty of our success because I am well aware that someone else named Bill Benter has already proven a billion dollar return building what we are in the process of and as brilliant as he is, Benter did so without the algorithms and expertise that Ed knew to apply that I thought the decline in my health was a result of this push.

This option is equity crowd funding which is different from crowd funding where you’re selling a product. Simply put (minus the details) you can run an equity campaign if you have a company, which we do, you can show what your company is about and how you make money, which we have and most important to these potential investors is how they will receive a return on their investment which we already can do by providing proof of concept from our Version 2s results.

The reason I haven’t committed to this option yet, or opened up a discussion even before my terminal diagnosis is because I honestly don’t know if I am able to give this the push needed. I am not sure I have any push left. Yet now that I know my fate and because my hearts desire is not to leave all Zen’s 36 shareholders hanging, I would use what time I have left to push forward though I am fully aware that I cannot do this alone. I am in discussions about this with my assistant Jon who just made me aware that he’s on board if we choose to go this route and with one of my equi-stats/ Zen racing partners to see what they would be able to help with though this alone may not be enough because of what’s involved. But lets say we can group together and pull this part off, then to run an equity campaign would require around a 30K investment of which $10K gets paid to Start Engine (the crowd funding company) to get us platform ready including adhering to SEC requirements, and we’d be required to provide financials and projection statements so we’d have to hire for this, with the rest going to video productions showing the potential shareholders what we have so we’d have to raise 30K first.

And if we did elect to go this route I would be opening up the 4 remaining shares in Zen that we have back and would campaign for 5 million, amount needed to complete the module to where it’s producing on average 70 to 75% winners (not 70 to 75% in the money) and then would incorporate A I (Artificial Intelligence) so Zen could robotically trade. And so you’re made aware, the Casino that we have our arrangement with that gives us unmatched cash rewards on our investment Will accept robotic trades.

This option for capital influx would put Zen in the position to hire our developers full time as well as the data scientists, pay all outstanding balances including the loans from shareholders so our slate is clean and if I’m gone before we roll, between my assistant Jon and my two equistats partners (one is our head developer) they would know how to get us there.

Getting us there would take about a year and a half to complete. Honestly it’s really way to soon for us to be betting with the program now because even though what we’ve accomplished to date is nothing short of amazing, at on average 30 to 40% winners (more closer to 30), 19 to 24% on average placing, 11 to 14% showing and an overall in the money hit rate of 70+% it still requires too much analyzing. But the reason we were betting now is because we did not get the anticipated funding and it was an option to make money and keep us moving forward. Yet because of my health and the amount of time that has to be allotted before deciding bets, our progression was extremely slow.

Now there is one more important thing you should know.

The biggest concern I’ve had since I realized how south my health went is You guys, your investment. I don’t want you to lose any part of it and my prayers for this were answered because in August I signed up with a law firm that is handling the government compensation for the veterans who served at Camp Lejeune and had water contamination that lead to quite a few health issues, esophageal cancer is one and unfortunately this is the cause of Ed’s death and though it can and probably will take up to 3 years to settle, the firm I am with says the payout will be anywhere between 300K and 1 Million and in some cases, like death and cancer could very well go to jury and these cases could be awarded a bit more. So this is what I’ve done. I have a revocable living trust and was able to list this Camp Lejeune settlement in this trust and I’ve listed every person who owns shares in Zen that they will receive the initial investment of $6K per share for each share they have at the time of settlement and for those who loaned Zen money with the promise of double back, I’ve included this in your payout too. So if we stop here. If we decide to go no further and not go after equity crowd funding, your investment will not be lost. And by listing this in a trust instead of a will you’ll receive this because it does not go to probate.

I realize this is a lot to process. This is the second saddest day of my life with the first being when I lost Ed because I wanted more than anything to take you, all of you across the finish line. For Ed, for me and for You! and now I know I won’t be able to do this and it hurts.

My drive has never been for the money. I wanted to make it but because I wanted to give back. To use the money I made from this to help injured jockeys, horses, and good causes for all things in our world.

I will leave Zen’s course of action up to You. Meaning what ever way you as a shareholder want to go, let me know through email and once I hear back from all we’ll move in the direction of the majority. Please take your time and think this through and when ready let me know.

and

As of today and until Zen reaches it’s conclusion whichever you choose, we are posting the full list of Standouts for all shareholders to use that can be accessed daily at the following link: stand-outs which there is also a link to above in the main menu. Please remember that these are for Zen Shareholders eyes only and can not be shared or sold as the non disclosure applies throughout the life of Zen. These will be posted around 7 PM EST each evening before.

and

I ask a favor. I am so worn out after all this and I really need to rest and also some time, meaning time before I answer anyone who writes because this has taken so much out of me.

I Love You and think of each of you as close friends. I want to thank you from my heart for sharing this journey with me!

The More Often Than Not Approach

Insight to Ed’s Brain

When Ed completed 2 years worth of stats for Layoffs and Claims he began to see enough data with a reasonable number of tries that identified potential bets.

Anyone who has had a conversation with Ed had to recognize his confidence and because of this often thought that Ed precisely knew how to bet out of the gate. Almost as if he were born with an innate understanding of how to invest and win on horseracing, however, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. His confidence came from recording statistics, and then letting the recording of these statistics guide him.

Personally I believe the secret to his success was it never mattered to him how much work was involved to find out how to win. If something lead him in a different direction even after spending a year or two recording information a certain way, he’d start over.

Ed Manually Tracking 138 trainer moves. Stopping just long enough for a picture.

He began by tracking 138 different trainer moves! He did all this manually, with a pencil and a pad. This was before we had a computer so for his birthday one year I bought him a pack of erasers. Of course as a joke but it was my way of trying to get him to accept the idea that it would be good to transition to a P C.

This was the beginning of our working together as a team that also defined our roles. Since neither of us were schooled in computers I willingly learned how to prepare spreadsheets and we went from there. Essentially we were still manually entering the data yet having this information in a spreadsheet and being able to decipher is what made Ed Bain happen.

While recording these 138 trainer moves Ed noticed Layoffs and Claims were dominant so this is when he made the first decision to start over. Initially he combined all distances, meaning he did not separate by sprint and route and to give you a real look inside Ed’s mind he once again made the decision to start completely over even after compiling 2 years worth of Layoffs and Claims because he realized distance matters. It’s this willingness to adjust, to change, to start over, that gives him his edge. It’s the reason he was able to figure out how to consistently win.

The manual recording had it’s advantages too because whether Ed realized this or not during the process he was subconsciously making note of things that surfaced at the most opportune times, when he was deciding which ones to bet. And I’m happy to say the same holds true for me because I am the one who pulls together the results so I can monitor how the Standouts are doing. I actually manually write down the results throughout the day, something I’ve done since day one because this gives me a hands on mental subconscious note of how they’re performing which also gives me direction.

It took about 3 years from the time Ed surfaced with his Layoff and Claims data to establishing a sound way to bet. All the while recording his bets and tracking his results.

We had spreadsheets for everything; just 4 + 30s (that we used to publish in monthly newsletter), then separate ones that contained all Layoffs and Claims stats, then spreadsheets for his bets and these grew as he moved along.

He was not an out of the gate win bettor nor did he strictly bet 4 + 30s which meant a trainer had 4 wins or more plus a 30% win rate or higher on this Layoff or Claim trainer move and he bet small during this process of growth.

It was during this analysis that he came to understand a 30% win rate also equates to a 70% loss rate and that in order to be profitable it was necessary to eliminate races which is how he came up with what he used to refer to as filters.

As an example he began with using the horse’s race record to eliminate. If the horse had zero wins for 4 at this track and/or distance, he’d pass. Then he noticed often if a horse won their last race that unless they won in an Allowance grade or better that the runner rarely repeat. So this was added to his list of filters. Another filter came about when one or more of his 4 + 30 stats showed up in the same race because whenever he selected one over the other, the other always won. Always 🙂

Thus began “the more often than not” rule. What this essentially means is that no matter what routine you establish, there are always going to be times when what you threw out or went against beats you. It’s part of being a horse player. No one wins every race though I do think we’re on track to eventually win 60% or more. So in order to know what to do, you track results and you see where the profit is and then you bet accordingly.

I’ll give a personal example of one of my more often than not rules. Whenever I make a serial race wager, usually one that includes 4 or more races, I make a bet I refer to as the either or.

What this means is I look for a trainer that happens to have 2 entries within my serial race wager (though not in the same race) and this trainer has to have a fairly high overall hit rate. Let’s say 20%. More than likely I am in this serial race wager because there is one race within the sequence that has a Stand out for me. It could be for any reason but there is one particular horse I really like that I want to stand alone with. So from here I scope the surrounding races to see what high profile trainer might have multiple entries within the wager I want to make and often times I find several which is great because I actually look at each of their runners and sometimes there is a good reason not to like one or the other so I decide not to use that trainer. Long story shorter once I decide who to use, I single them in each race on two separate tickets with my single that lead me to this race in the first place and then do all and all in the legs where I don’t have a stat.

To define, lets say we have a Pick 4 and in leg 1 I really like the 2 horse and trainer Brad Cox has two entries, one in leg 2 which we’ll label the 1 horse and one in leg 4 which we’ll label the 4 horse. My two tickets would look like this:

2/1/ALL/ALL and 2/ALL/ALL/4

So if my single hits and Brad Cox wins either of these two legs I win more often than not by betting this way. Sounds simple but it took quite a few tries for me to establish this bet because I didn’t always use All in the middle and learned the hard way to do so. However sometimes in the All slot the favorite hits even though I perceived that race wide open and thus the pick 4 wager payout isn’t big. But, More Often Than Not, it is. It pays great. And the other deciding factor before even deciding this bet is the fact that my single has decent odds and I perceive the serial race wager wide open and worth the bet OR I pass.

The reason I share all this is because I have figured out one way so far for us to consistently win. And I am applying this each day I bet so we can grow our betting pool. Though there are so many more opportunities awaiting and the only way we discover what these are is by deciphering the results which I continue to do.

In other words because we have this understanding we’re already turning a profit and we don’t have to wait 3 years to know what to do. So we’re moving forward betting this one way, continuing to bet small until I get down the routine and our pool is consistently growing like Ed, I will then increase the increments.

In addition I’m trying and will continue to try various things that we’ve discovered and because of this sometimes you will see days where we haven’t won, though because when doing so we bet small so we’re not experiencing a big loss. When something doesn’t work or requires an adjustment, I’ll pull back, meaning I don’t bet, instead analyze some more and then try again.

For now it looks like the weekends (Fri-Sat-Sun) will get the majority of our wagers.

You can follow our progress which includes our betting balance sheet at the following link: https://anyhorseplayersoutthere.com/version-2-wagers/

and in case you’re not aware each night we publish a full card for you to view that identifies the Standouts (the programs top rated selection with a big advantage over the next best runner) in bold that you can access each evening usually by 7 PM EST at the following link:
https://anyhorseplayersoutthere.com/potential-bets-all/

Lastly we also publish the Standout results for each day so everyone can follow along with how these are performing. The other day we hit 80%+ in the money with a lot of winners though if we bet all would have lost about $10 cause of so many low price payouts and on that day there were a lot of scratches so many no payouts for show. That’s part of this too.
These are posted at the following link:
https://anyhorseplayersoutthere.com/results-2022-may/

That is the list that I choose our wagers from.

In closing I did get some rest this week, and am rejuvenated. I will continue to be engrossed in our venture, betting, building our bank and adding to things as we move along. For the most part I will remain quiet unless of course we have an exceptional day I will be certain to let you know 🙂

Looking forward to tomorrow’s races.
